Oh this was so cute! So cute! And Giovanna's writing style definitely seems to have come on between books - there's less exclamation marks and the writing just flows so well. SUCH a gorgeous little novella, so sweet and amazing, and oh God, I can't wait to dive in to Always With Love now!!! Sophie and Billy are just the cutest couple and this novella just made me die with happiness.

Although I didn't read the novel that Giovanna wrote with the same protagonists, I still loved this book.

Although I haven't read any other of the authors work, this one is still cute and quirky. The main characters are very sweet and you fall in love with them straight away. I'm not going to spoil it for you, but if you read it, you'll understand when I say you'll be rooting for billy in the book.

So I give this a 4 star review. Because I didn't read the first book I can't give it the 5 stars,

After reading Billy and Me, I wanted to get my hand on this short story that takes place after the end of the book and obviously, at Christmas.
This little book maintains the charm of Billy and Me (and You're the One that I Want, Giovanna Fletcher sure know how to write charming novels and characters.) and adds a bit of mystery because someone wants to use Sophie's teashop to propose. It's not to difficult to figure out how is it but it's still cute and charming. I know, I'm using this word a lo

Super short, easy read to lead into the next Billy and Sophie story. It was cute, but hopped immediately from event to event so there was no soft, peaceful Christmassy feel to it. It was a lot of tell, instead of show, in describing the actions of everyone as well as the settings. Saw the identity of the Proposer a mile off, but it was still sweet. The new characters are cute but I'm wondering how much they're going to tie in to the next book. Shall wait and see.

Good little short, overall.

Actually more like 3,5 stars, working with half stars would be so much handier.
Anyway, turns out that my thoughts about what was going to happen were wrong. But it's still a very sweet and romantic story that left me with a warm heart and a big smile on my face.
Also a great read on Christmas Eve, cause all I want to do now is sit around with my family and give them all big hugs.

Very sweet. An amazing follow up of the characters in the original book , Billy and Me. The ending was cute and romantic, definitely shocked me. I think this shows how much we want and need a full length sequel.

Sweet and lovely little story.
The Christmas feeling is coming off the pages.Just like the love for each other and family and friends.
Of course I was also guessing who was the mysterious person who wanted to do a proposal at Christmas Eve.
I wasn't disappointed by who it was.

In this little Christmas book following on Sophie and Billy's life together now, we see how taking over the cafe Sophie gets a secret special request to fulfil in making the cafe a special Christmas hub for a romantic proposal to happen in!

But will the lucky woman say yes?

A fun short Christmas story with a surprise proposal I didn't see coming!

A firm lover of Fletcher's light-hearted contemporary romances (and her husband's music!), I was on-the-edge-of-my-seat excited to read this short spinoff story. Set a few months or so after the events of the first novel, Billy and Me, it's the perfect tie-off for their happily ever after. Or so I thought. I'm willing to put my hands up right now and own up to the fact I expected the proposal to be from a certain gorgeous movie star - except, it wasn't. Don't get me wrong though, I still love wh ...more

This review was originally posted on Star Crossed Reviews I received this book for free I bought it in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.I purchased this book from Amazon quite a while ago but as soon as I finished Billy and Me I had to read Christmas with Billy and Me. This book is set a few months after Billy and Me and if you haven’t read that then Please do not read on as there are some spoilers ahead…

Though it's not Christmas or even 'Christmas in July' - this book is still a beautiful love story and gets me ready for the new book!!! New Year in LA - yes please XD

Yet another beautiful, romantic story from Gi Fletcher!!

'Life presents us with a series of patches, and from those little patches great things are made.'

The story sees us return to Molly's on the Hill at Christmas time. Six months have passed since the reopening of the tea shop, and Sophie and Billy have

I loved this so much! I adored the original novel 'Billy & Me' and was so excited when Gi announced this was coming out. I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't longer and was hoping Billy was going to be the Proposer, but I loved it all the same and I'm hoping there'll be more follow up novels and that we'll eventually get a Billy and Sophie wedding! ...more

Was so lovely to catch up with these characters at Christmas time. Billy and Sophie still madly in love and happy. The surprise Christmas proposal was brilliant and sounds like the ideal way to be proposed to if you ask me. A lovely little read!!

This was a cute little Christmas novella. Though slightly predictable, it makes you feel warm and cozy. The perfect addition to the Billy and Me series.

》Do you enjoy Christmas? I don't know if you are aware of it but... I LOVE Christmas! Everything is so jolly and happy. The lights, the songs, the seasonal chocolates...🤤
In my opinion, it's never to early to get into the Christmas spirit and this morning for a bit of light reading I chose the short story written by the amazing @mrsgifletcher to have a bit of Christmas in July.

Was not very impressed with this one unfortunately, as you might be able to tell from the rating. Although the wintery, Christmas descriptions were nice and atmospheric, plot-wise I felt that this little novella was lacking. I could see the twist, if you can call it that, coming from a mile off and I thought the delivery was lacking slightly.

To round up my issue with it: I didn't get that warm, fuzzy feeling inside that I did when I read Fletcher's "You're the One That I Want" and have been crav

This was such a quick read! I was able to devour this 54 page short story in about 45minutes.

Unfortunately, and possibly due to the size of the book, there's not a lot to say about it. I really enjoyed Fletcher's writing style; however at page 46 I was able to predict the outcome of the story. I did also feel as though Fletcher was trying to pack a lot into such a small number of pages and although the plot-driven nature of the novella made it a quick read; especially at the beginning, the infl

I listened to this :)

When you spend your life reading non fiction and listening to tales of how to be better, do better and achieve more... it’s incredibly refreshing to read/ listen to something simple, innocent and light hearted. No complex character development or scene setting, a little hidden message here and there but nothing deep, controversial or cleverly constructed. Just wholesome, warm hearted chick lit - it’s actually surprisingly good for the soul.
