Snowflakes at the Little Christmas Tree Farm by Jaimie Admans is a perfect Christmas contemporary romance to curl up with by the fire this holiday season. This one especially for anyone who has ever made a drunken impulse buy as surely it couldn’t have been as bad as buying your own tree farm!

Leah Griffiths had been in a taboo relationship with her boss but that quickly ended when she walked in on him with another co-worker. Unfortunate as the ending to her relationship was the fact this also pu

The morning after finding her boss/boyfriend in a compromising position with a colleague and then discovering he’s also been sleeping with half the office, Leah Griffiths wakes up with a banging headache after downing three bottles of Prosecco, she also realises that she has won a bid on something too on an auction site.

Not only did she bid and win an auction whilst drunk, but she has also paid for the item too. Expecting it to be another pair of shoes s

I'm sure we have all seen a Christmas Tree farm up for sale, at the other end of the country, gone onto the auction site while drunk and purchased the farm without having ever seen it in real life, and then been shocked when it looks nothing like the pictures?

You mean you haven't done that - well it must just be Leah Griffiths, the heroine in this book, where she does exactly that and then has to somehow make a go of it, given she has sunk all her savings into the purchase.

Leah thought a bit of Prosecco would make her forget seeing her boyfriend with another woman. And it did … it just also made her forget buying a Christmas tree farm in Scotland. After coming to her senses, she’s shocked, but the idea of trekking off to Scotland and running her own business is more than appealing. And while the farm itself isn’t quite what she thought it would be, it has potential—just like the handsome pumpkin farmer next door.

Everyone makes regrettable decisions, but Leah takes

I absolutely adore this book! I do have a real love for Christmas stories, they are like chocolate to me, I can read my fill of them and still want more and this wonderful. It is such a fabulously fun, joyful, very festive and romantic tale with all the hilarity and adorable moments that you love to see in romantic comedies – I could definitely see this made into a film. I loved the whole concept of this story, it’s completely out there original, but brings home the, message that if you truly wa ...more

This was an adorable Christmas romance! I loved that the fluff also had a sprinkle of angst, and that both Leah and Noel had shared past experiences involving grief and trust issues that they were able to overcome with one another. I will say that at times I found the amount of tree/farming information a bit dull, but it's obvious the author did her research, because it was detailed yet written in a way that was easy for someone who doesn't know the first thing about tree farming to understand. ...more

The third book by Jaimie Admans I've read within a year, and so far she hasn't failed me! This one was just as adorable, cute and Christmassy as last years "It's a Wonderful Night". And again it's not only about a heroine and her love-interest, but about a community, helping each other and saving something (in the last book it was a high-street and its shops, here it is a Christmas market and basically a whole village depending on it).

I liked how Leah comes up with idea after creative

I was so egg-cited to start my third Christmas-themed romance read of the year! Tell me I’m not the only one who is excited for the holly-days. What can I say? I’m a sentimental sap who is pining for all things festive. *snorts*

Sorry! I’ll stop with the puns now. Just my little homage to Noel.


*clears throat*

Depending on your POV, some of your best or worst decisions can be made under the influence of a glass or two of Prosecco.

What a unique storyline! Never read a chicklit book taking place in a Christmas tree farm and at first I was a bit surprised but rapidly I fell in love with the book. If you want to read a book with a real romance this is the one! But don't be afraid about the word "romance" because it's not a soppy one. It's well developed. This books contains a beautiful one. This book is also very Christmassy as it takes place during the period before Christmas when people will buy their tree. I have also lea ...more
Ever heard the terms "Buyer beware" or "too good to be true" - or watched 'Homes Under the Hammer' and been told the golden rules of buying at auction include reading the legal pack and viewing the property? Leah Griffiths certainly didn't consider any of them when she took part in an online auction and bought herself 25 acres in Scotland, complete with a dwelling. It was a little Christmas Tree Farm but she really should have looked before she pressed to buy it! When she arrives she's dishearte ...more
Jaimie Admans has done it again! I don’t know how each of her books is more amazing than the last, but they are. Snowflakes at the Little Christmas Tree Farm was charming, funny, and romantic - a total delight.

I loved Leah and Noel and found them both really relatable. I completely understand Leah’s desire to take a huge leap and change things up. I thought she was equal parts brave and crazy (in the best way possible!) for moving her entire life from London to Scotland to follow a dream that in

I have been a fan of Jaimie's work for a little while now. I love how she combines the dramatic with the funny. Her books leave you with a fuzzy warm feeling inside. Anyway enough of the fan girling. I couldn't wait to get hold of a copy of her latest book called 'Snowflakes At The Little Christmas Tree Farm', which was released on 9th October 2019. I had a sneaky peek at an early review copy and I thoroughly enjoyed it but more about that in a bit.

I loved everything about this book! It was the perfect holiday read with compelling characters, a wonderfully Christmasy setting, a well-developed and captivating romance, and so much heart. The story had some lovely messages about family, community, rising to life's challenges, and rebounding from a loss. I chuckled (the tree puns are very clever!), got teary-eyed, and couldn't turn the pages fast enough to see how everything worked out for Leah, her newly acquired Christmas tree farm, and Noel ...more

I like this author, she writes lovely chemistry filled books in the most magical, offbeat places with even bizarre storylines. Despite the fairy tale like set up, this book is very grounded, get it? Ground like farm? Sorry I must be inheriting the string of bad farm puns and drunk tree jokes that were running the entire course of the book.

This book veers into unfamiliar territory because I cannot fathom to ever buy a farm and maintain Christmas trees so relatability is off the window w

So, what's it all about?

Firstly, this has to be my favourite all time Christmas themed romance with a generous sprinkling of humour and a dollop of human angst. I didn’t want the book to end! It is a joy to read and I just couldn’t put it down because I simply had to know what was going to happen next!

Having read previous books by this author, I was very much looking forward to reading this one, her latest release. 

I loved the setting and getting to know all of the characters was such a joy, all of whom were so very well written and likable.

I was literally glued to it's pages from start to finish. It was full of Christmas festive moments, with the Christmas trees and the market, plus heartwarming and entertaining, not to mention a few giggly moments throughout the story too.

We have all done regrettable things after a few drinks but in this story Leah takes it to the extremes when she bids and ends up buying a Christmas Tree Farm after a few to many glasses of Prosecco whilst trying to forget seeing her boyfriend with another woman......
The farm looks nothing like it’s pictures , it’s fallen into disrepair and Leah knows nothing about Christmas Trees apart from how to decorate them so this is going to be an uphill battle as she learns the ropes and how to grow Chris

The morning after finding her boyfriend/boss in a compromising position, Leah Griffiths wakes up not only with a huge hangover after downing few bottles of Prosecco, but also as a new owner of a Christmas Tree Farm in Scotland that she's just won on an internet auction. And paid for it. £50,000, all the money left after selling her parents' house when they died.
But hey, the farm looks lovely on the pictures, right? As she has no job in London anymore, her parents are dead and she has only one be

Snowflakes at the Little Christmas Tree Farm by Jaimie Admans a charming five-star read. What a lovely and sweet read, it was sweet but also a little sparky and that just kept the story going and gave it a great depth. Leah as a character, just kept me hooked, she made me chuckle and I could imagine her as a good friend, one you could laugh over drinks with when you do stupid stuff (cough, cough). This is a great story and its also a great Christmas story, don’t miss this fabulous read.

Leah has had her heart broken. Of course she does what any woman would do, she goes online and during a round of heavy drinking uses an online auction to buy a Christmas tree farm in Scotland.

It is exactly what her late mother and father would have loved to do. They have died in an auto accident. In some weird way, Leah believes this purchase would make them happy. The fact she is a data entry person who knows nothing about farming or growing trees is not important. Starting a new life is impor

My goodness am I excited for Christmas! This book made me feel all sorts of Christmassy, from the setting on an actual Christmas tree farm, to the markets, to the food to just everything! It was truly a lovely read and perfect for curling up on a quiet evening with a mug of tea or perhaps a hot chocolate.

We've all heard of the mistakes that may occur when one isn't necessarily in their right minds, but buying a Christmas tree farm in the last few seconds of an auction certainly is a new one. Bu

This really turned out to be a downer. I was looking forward to it so much, especially after having read and enjoyed so many of Jaimie Admans' books, that not loving this actually surprised me.

Leah Griffiths wakes up one day to find out she has bought a Christmas tree farm... while terribly drunk. She was shocked at first, but after thinking things through, she realised that the change is extremely welcome. She has little to nothing to stay for in London (no thanks to her cheating ex), so why n

This book was almost the perfect festive read for me! It had a woman of relatable age drunkenly buying a Christmas tree farm and completely changing her life - for the better.
There was a delicious, unbelievably lovely, but slightly grumpy hero to help her find her feet in her new life, whacky and wonderful secondary characters - who didn't take up too much page time - and lots and lots of festive goodness! It's very much a Christmas book but Noel - Mr lovely grumpy pants - is predominantly a pu

What a charming and sweet little Christmas romance! The heroine, Leah, after seeing and hearing the evidence of her boyfriend boss’s betrayal, drunkenly buys a Christmas tree farm in Scotland sight unseen. In the cold light of day, she determines that she probably did so because her father always wished to return to his Scottish roots, and her mom loved Christmas. So even though it leaves her with just two thousand pounds in her bank account, she does in fact buy the farm and heads to Scotland. ...more
