Summary

Amber Tate is about to lose her job at a London publishing house. And it’s nearly Christmas. Her boss gives her one last chance. Sadly, it’s the impossible task of obtaining the rights to the popular Lund Collection of fairy tales. The rights to the fairy tales are held by the author’s granddaughter, Emilia Lund, who lives a reclusive life in Sweden and has steadfastly refused to talk to anyone about the rights for the last several years.  

However, in order to convince her one and only friend that she can be sociable, Emilia agrees to invite Amber - under strict conditions - to the cozy setting of wintry Sweden. They both agree to this vital meeting for their own separate reasons. Except...things never pan out quite as planned, do they?

A True Christmas Story

When I heard from that A E Radley was releasing a Christmas story I had to get it. What made it even better was the narrator who brought the characters to life and she was very good with the accents. I loved the way Hugo had encouraged Emilia to get in touch with Amber about the Lund Fairy Tales. Also the ups and downs of the main characters. The way that the author shows you around this small village in Sweden and the country's christmas customs make you feel as though you are there. This is a lovely story that shows that if you stick to your principals you can get what you want

A Cuddle In Winter

Amber Tate has the boss from hell and is about to lose her job just before Christmas. Now she gets the impossible task of getting the renewal rights to the Lund collection of children’s books. Emilia Lund, the granddaughter, is a recluse and refuses to consider any offers. When she invites Amber to spend Christmas in Sweden her boss tells her to go. A Christmas fairy tale with quirky characters and romance. Recommend.

A sweet slow burn romance

This was a very sweet slow burn romance. I very much enjoyed this story. My only complaint is that the names sounded so similar that it was hard for me to keep straight who was who. I think it would be different if I were actually reading and not listening. The narrator did a wonderful job. I enjoyed her voice. She's quite talented. You could distinguish the different people by her pitch and accent. This book was definitely worth listening to as was the narrator.

Fantastic

A very enjoyable Christmas time listen! The narration is absolutely wonderful. I truly enjoyed the journey this listen took me on, and am very satisfied by the ending. I found myself laughing out loud and groaning when it came time to push pause. I will definitely be a repeat listener!

Loved this book

It is different, has great story line, not at all a regular Christmas story. Loved it. Narration was great, the only thing that made me cringe was from time to time the way she said Amber. But besides that she was very good
