One of my very favourite authors, international bestselling author, Mandy Baggot, is my guest for day four of my blog. This is a real ‘fangirl’ moment for me. 🙂   Mandy is going to tell us all about her latest heartwarming Christmas release, One Christmas Kiss in Notting Hill, and share her Christmas traditions with us. Isn’t the cover totally gorgeous? This is one book I definitely want to find in my stocking!


Imagine the perfect Christmas Kiss

His strong arms around her waist, her hands on his face, the snow slowly starts to fall…

It’s enough to make Isla Winters cringe! While her sister can’t get enough of this – increasingly common – sight on the streets of London, Isla’s too busy trying to stop Hannah’s wheelchair from slipping on the ice, and making sure she’s not too late to her dream job at Breekers International.

But everything changes with the arrival of Chase Bryan, fresh from the New York office. He’s eager to learn everything about Isla’s beloved Notting Hill, but as the nights get colder, will cosying up to him come at a price?

I asked Mandy to tell us a bit about her Christmas traditions

Do you have any favourite family Christmas traditions? If so, what are they?

My husband and I always watch Die Hard or Die Hard 2 with Chinese takeaway on Christmas Eve. I’m not sure when it became a thing but it did and we do! Never gets old and who doesn’t want a bit of Bruce Willis with their chicken balls before the big day?

When do you open your Christmas presents?

We open our Christmas presents first thing in the morning. I’m quite lucky as my two girls have never been ones for getting up at 4am. It’s usually 7.30/8.00 before we get up and start tearing at the wrapping paper!

You are lucky, my girls were awake at the crack of dawn!

If you could invite any author living or dead to share your Christmas lunch, who would it be?

I’d really like to share my dinner with my best writing friends. Zara Stoneley, Rachel Lyndhurst, Sue Fortin and Linn B Halton. This would be a Christmas dinner table full of wine and a whole lot of laughter.

It sounds fun, Mandy. 🙂

What book would you like to find in your Christmas stocking?

This is so hard because I am a one-click fiend! If I see one I want I buy it! Sshh! Don’t tell my husband. I guess it would have to be a signed copy in this case… I do have a copy of this book already but I would love Sully: Miracle on the Hudson signed by the great man himself.
