Cold Feet at Christmas by Debbie Johnson

Cold Feet at Christmas tells the story of Leah Harvey, who finds her fiance in a compromising position with the bridesmaid just before her fairytale Christmas Eve wedding in a remote Scottish castle. Understandably annoyed, she flees the scene - and ends up stranded in a blizzard in the middle of nowhere. She manages to stagger to the nearest cottage, which is inhabited by a mysterious stranger so handsome she thinks she's died of hypothermia and gone to heaven!

The story follows on from their initial meeting, and the way their lives become entwined almost against their will - sometimes for the good, sometimes not.

The Christmas Surprise by Jenny Colgan

The Christmas Surprise is about Rosie Hopkins, an ex- nurse who runs a sweetshop in rural Derbyshire. So Christmas is always a busy time of year! And there's usually a lot of snow.

A Nightingale Christmas Wish is the fifth in the Nightingale series (although it also stands alone, so you don't have to have read the previous books to enjoy it). The story begins at Christmas 1938, when the shadow of impending war hangs over the country. The nurses and doctors of the Nightingale Hospital in East London are all doing their best to celebrate the festive season, but there's also a fear for the future. They're aware that over the coming months things are going to be changing, and by the time the following Christmas comes they could well be at war. The story follows three nurses at the hospital as they come to terms with their uncertain future, and how they deal with it. It's a story about love, and friendship, and finding a ray of light and hope in the most unexpected places.

Mr Mircale by Debbie Macomber

This is Harry's first visit to earth and he arrives as a junior college literature teacher who is faced with an entire classroom full of students in need of a bit of divine intervention.

Christmas at Claridges by Karen Swan

The main character in Christmas at Clardiges , Clem, is my favourite to date: she's funky, feisty, and seemingly living the ultimate girl-about-town lifestyle. I set the initial action of the book in Portobello - so there's lots of references to the market, the royal parks, heritage sites like the Electric cinema - but then we relocate to Portofino where Clem's brought face-to-face with her past and things become a lot darker. Why Portofino? Partly because I loved the linguistic echoes between both settings: Portobello and Portofino sound so similar but they're vastly different from one another in terms of culture, vibe, scale etc, and the book hinges around why and how Clem can belong to both.

Wish Upon A Star by Trisha Ashley

In Wish Upon a Star Cally is a single mum with a life that revolves around her little girl, Stella, who was born with serious health problems. When Stella's condition suddenly worsens, she sells up her London flat and they move to the village of Sticklepond in West Lancashire to live with her mother, while Cally tries to raise enough money to take Stella to America for a potentially life-saving operation.

Cally only realises quite how tough shouldering everything alone has been when all the villagers - and especially laid-back and charming baker Jago - rally round to help. All Cally wants for Christmas is a miracle to save Stella and the story is very much about following your star wherever it may lead and however tough the going might be, with hope in your heart.

Melting Ms Frost by Kat Black

In Melting Ms Frost , London restaurant manager, Annabel Frost, has a reputation for being as chilly as her name implies.

Christmas at Carringtons by Alexandra Brown

Christmas at Carrington's is ultimately a comedy, with lots of snarky one-liners and cringe-inducing moments, and covers some serious topics too. It's set in the run up to Christmas and there's a surprise in-store when retail guru, Kelly Cooper, arrives to film her hot new reality TV show. Georgie is shown in a far from flattering light and ends up becoming a very reluctant reality TV star, and then when Tom, her new flame disappears; Georgie fears this could be the worse Christmas ever…. It's a warm funny Christmassy read with plenty of sparkle and lots of heart.

Calling Mrs Christmas is a story about Cassie Smith who's been out of work for a while and then has the idea of drawing on her love of Christmas to start her own business - Calling Mrs Christmas - helping other people to plan their Christmas. The idea takes off faster than she'd imagined and she has to call on her partner, Jim, to help her out.

White Christmas by Emma Lee Potter

White Christmas is a very light-hearted novella and I hope it will get readers in the festive mood in the run-up to Christmas.

It's the story of two rival weather forecasters who meet just a few weeks before Christmas. Hal Benson is an out of work actor who has been hired as a stand-in weather presenter by a ratings-chasing TV news channel. Meanwhile Lizzie Foster is a scientist who works for a more serious rival station. She is bright, determined and fascinated by meteorology - and she can't believe that Hal is completely clueless about the weather and just goes on his gut instinct.

The pair become friends and as Christmas Day approaches Hal persuades Lizzie to have a bet on whether it's going to be a White Christmas or not. Which of them will turn out to be right?
