this was a charming story that completely envelops you in the Christmas spirit🎄

Something about this story reminds me of my favorite Christmas movie “The Polar Express” it completely emerges you in Christmas... A quaint steam engine train ride that drops you off in a town full of Christmas cheer🚂

Maggie has planned a Christmas getaway for her and her boyfriend, a last ditch effort to rekindle their relationship.... but Dirk is a jerk and doesn’t show up to their romantic getaway in order to spend

It's the most magical time of the year...
... and this the most magical Christmassy story I have read all year.

All I want to know is where the real Holydell is, and can I please visit it. It is such an amazing setting for a festive story - its a little hidden away winter wonderland somewhere in Scotland that is quite remote but one of the most special settings about.

There are real live reindeer, there is dog sledding, Christmas markets, the largest Christmas pudding imaginable, festive concert

Normally you would expect a feel good book to be written by a femaile author, but CP Ward shows that male authors can do it as well.

This story takes us to a small village in Scotland where normal life almost seems to come to a standstill and everything revolves around Christmas. But it's not about the commercial site of the festive season. Here the focus is on the cozy atmosphere where natives and visitors celebrate together and enjoy all kinds of events involving food and drinks as well as game

**RATING 3.5**

A sweet, Christmas story, I'M GLAD I FOUND YOU by CP Ward is like something you would expect to see on the Hallmark channel only in book form.

Maggie Coates feels like she has lost her boyfriend ever since he got a big job in the city and they embarked on a long-distance relationship. She wants to get married but feels like Dirk is slipping away from her, especially since he cheated on her before. Determined to give it one more chance, Maggie books a Christmas break in a remote part

I'm not usually a romance reader but I do usually love the stories written by Chris Ward and gave it a try (plus, I love Christmas so what could go wrong?). So glad I did. This is such a heartwarming story of heartbreak and healing, and of course, the magic of Christmas. And as always, the characters are so wonderful that you wish you could be friends with these people. What a great way to spend a holiday! I recommend this story to all Christmas lovers with a big heart.

"I'm glad you stood me up this Christmas...
...because it gave me the chance to meet someone who is worthy of me."
A tiny 'Hogwarts-express' takes Maggie to an almost magical Winter Wonderland, hidden in the Scottish highlands. Her best friend Renee is like a fairy godmother who helps her to find herself and her knight in shining snowman outfit.
Beautiful, magical and funny story!

What a magical journey Maggie takes, have to admit, I'd like to make that journey myself! This book has wonderful characters, fun days, a relationship breakdown, a possible romance on the horizon, well meaning characters, sweet background stories and a best friend who has your back. This was a really nice Christmas read which was fun in places but sad as well - such is life. A new author for me, one who I will look out for in the future.

I'm Glad I Found You This Christmas - This wasn't as good as I thought it would be. Mr. Ward writes good stories and this is one, but the main character is too stupid, too immature and too much eejit to be likable. It takes awhile for the story to get interesting because of Miss Lack of Confidence or Brains, AKA Eejit, dominates the story with her neediness and silliness. She can't make a move unless she calls/texts her bestie whining about everything, and repeatedly calls/texts her boyfriend. S ...more

Who could resist the reindeer?
I have a confession to make - I don't normally read or review romances. However, I am a sucker for a lighthearted Christmas story, and when I got the chance to review this book I agreed - and I am happy that I did so! Had I been asked to review a book with reindeer in, then I might just have bitten the author's e-hands off.
The romance part is good - I was gunning for her to chose the right person, so that worked out well. The supporting characters were well fleshed

This was a very sweet, Christmas feeling story, set in a snowy village in Scotland.

Maggie books a surprise break away in a tiny Scottish village called Hollydell in the hope that she can reignite the spark that seems to have been lost with her boyfriend Dirk, who has recently moved to London to start a new job and is proving quite elusive to get hold of since moving. He was obviously up to no good but Maggie couldn't see it and kept clinging to the fact that they were still a couple and he was a

This was a very enjoyable read, when it comes or Christmas reads nothing beats this type of book, the characters in Hollydell are all friendly and you get to know them more as the book goes on so you become even more invested in them. Admittedly I did want to strangle Maggie at times due to her not wanting to admit what was really happening to her relationship, but I also get not wanting to admit defeat until the bitter end. I love the traditions and the mystery behind some on the townsfolk and ...more

"A place only for special people."
Four years together and he still hadn't proposed. In fact, Maggie had hardly seen her boyfriend since he moved to London after his promotion a year before. And he doesn't answer her calls, just an occasional text. Excuse me but is this girl drippy, or what? Go down there and confront bim, woman! But no. She is persuaded (easi!y) by her girlfriend to book a dream Christmas holiday for the two lovebirds- and just hope that he'll turn up. He says he will, but even

Maggie tries to save her relationship with her boyfriend of 4 years and with her best friend finds the perfect place to have a romantic Christmas holiday. But things do not go as planned and they cannot go together. Dirk promises her to follow her asap, but she has some doubts he will. The village and its people are all picture perfect and help her whichever way they can.
A story of letting go of the old, allowing the new and more than anything else allowing the Christmas Magic to bring hope for

Sweet, magical, whimsical and romantic
When you know that your romantic relationship is not going anywhere, but you can`t bring yourself to see the truth and be the one to break things off, thank goodness for best friends.
And old search engines! I loved how they found Hollydell and all Maggie had to go through, and what she had to face, to get there. I was so happy it was not all sunshine and colored lights.

I would highly recommend this book because it will get you right into the Christmas spirit. I want to visit Hollydell myself. It's so magical and as a lover of everything Christmas it's a dream place to visit at Christmas time. It's the perfect place for Maggie to visit. She's going to the magic of the quaint town. I just loved Henry and when he's called the town's Cat Lady he's won me over instantly. All the characters are great expect one and he doesn't deserve Maggie. I really sugges

Enjoyable froth, but a tad too sweet and lacking in any depth for my liking. However, there is some really, really lovely writing in here.
If you enjoy fairy-tale overly-sweet and predictable Christmas romances you will enjoy this.

I really enjoyed this story and I flew through the pages.

I thought it was a very Christmassy story that was well written, well developed and it had a great flow that kept me thoroughly entertained.

The setting for the book was great and the author really made me feel as though I was there. I thought that the characters were really good and I could really relate to them.

Five stars from me, a festive treat and a very enjoyable story!
