Holly Martin is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. She has a way of warming you up inside and will have you falling in love with all the characters from the very beginning of CHRISTMAS UNDER A CRANBERRY SKY. You can’t help but care for Piper.  She is damaged where love is concerned, and very fragile, but she goes out of her way to help those she cares about. Gabe is my new book boyfriend who I thought was an uptight snob in the beginning but the way he protects Piper and looks out for her had me swooning in no time at all. I devoured Gabe and Piper’s story in one sitting and can’t wait to continue the Town Called Christmas series with the next book, Christmas Under A Starlit Sky. I can’t wait to read more by this wonderful and funny author.


It’s always refreshing when an author can make you giggle out loud and Holly Martin does just that with CHRISTMAS UNDER A CRANBERRY SKY. She even had me snorting to the point where my husband looked at me like I was crazy. Holly Martin is quickly becoming my newest go to author. CHRISTMAS UNDER A CRANBERRY SKY is book one in the A Town Called Christmas series. Here you will meet Piper Chesterfield. She lives nowhere, has no house to call home.  She reviews the finest hotels for her career and travels all over the world.  She arrives at one of the Shetland Islands to review a new resort that will be opening soon, and it just happens to be a wonderful place where she spent a childhood holiday. She discovers once there that the hotel and resort is owned by her childhood best friend and love of her life Gabe. They hadn’t seen each other for over 12 years when Piper left due to a tragic accident and horrible misunderstanding.


CHRISTMAS UNDER A CRANBERRY SKY is a magical romantic story that you will finish in one sitting like I did. It’s a wonderful story that is sure to put you in the Christmas spirit no matter what time of year you read it. If you love a sweet and funny story of friends becoming lovers then nothing then lovers again than do not skip CHRISTMAS UNDER A CRANBERRY SKY.  The characters were also a joy to read about. I liked both Piper and Gabe, as well as Gabe’s family, but my favorite was Gabe’s young daughter Wren. She was simply the sweetest character who pulls at your heartstrings and I loved her involvement in the story the most.  It had me completely invested in all of the characters lives, so much so that now I feel as if we are all friends and I truly want to pack up the car and head to Christmas.  I just love when an author can do that to me and Holly Martin does not disappoint.


I received a copy of this book by the author and publishers, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.



This year spend a wonderful Christmas on Juniper Island, where love can melt even the iciest of hearts…

Piper Chesterfield lives a glamorous life travelling the world and reviewing the finest hotels. She calls nowhere home, she works alone and that’s how she likes it. For long ago Piper decided that to protect her heart she should lock it away.

So when Piper’s next assignment brings her to the newly opened Stardust Lake Hotel for the festive season, the last person she expects to face is Gabe Whitaker, the man who broke her heart so completely she could never love again.

But Piper isn’t the only one who has been frozen in time by heartbreak. Gabe hasn’t forgotten the golden-eyed girl who disappeared from his world without a trace.

Now fate has reunited them on Juniper island, can the magic of Christmas heal old wounds? And can this enchanting town be the one place Piper can finally call home?

Curl up with this gorgeously romantic tale and let the glistening snow and the roaring fires of Stardust Lake Hotel get you in the festive spirit this Christmas.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!💜
