A Yorkshire Christmas by Kate Hewitt (Book Beginnings & Friday 56)

Friday 56 (share from the 56th page or 56% mark) is hosted at Freda's Voice (today 56%) 
& Book Beginnings (share the first few sentences) is at Rose City Reader.

So, I put together the Book Beginning & Friday 56 image before I started reading the book and the further I got into my reading, the more confused I got because of the Amazon description:

Wealthy New York City girl Claire Lindell isn’t looking for a Christmas miracle or happiness when she abruptly decides to hole up for the holiday at her godmother’s cottage in a little Yorkshire village, and lick her wounds from a near disastrous romantic decision. 
After her car skids into a snow bank, Claire may have accidently found her perfect Christmas and the family and love she’s craved when she offers Noah Bradford of Ayesgill Farm help to push the back end of one of his sheep out of the icy mud, even if she’s going to ruin a brand new pair of Prada boots during the rescue. 
What’s a little leather when love’s on the line?

Wait .... WHAT? Then who the heck is Hannah Ford from the 56% mark?
*dig dig dig ... search search search ... OH! The Table of Contents!*

Silly me ... the 56% is from another story altogether!
*dig dig dig ... search search search ...*
A ha! The second story is also sold on its own ...

Amazon Description -- Part 2
Welcome to Creighton Falls, New York… a town time forgot where miracles happen…
Glamorous city girl Hannah Ford wasn’t thinking when she walked out of a Christmas party and drove three hundred miles into a snowstorm; she just needed to escape. Thankfully local carpenter Sam Taylor comes to her rescue, and the unlikely pair are forced to spend a snowed-in Christmas together.
All Sam planned for Christmas was to get drunk alone. The holiday has always been something to be endured, until Hannah tumbles into his life, making it magical. Now Hannah and Sam have a chance to have a Christmas together… and make it the best one either of them have ever had.
But can one night out of reality turn into something that’s lasting and real?

Mysteries solved and confusion put on the back burner, I dove back in to reading and am now a huge fan of Kate Hewitt's (and, I'm assuming, will be of her alter ego,  Katharine Swartz) ... and I haven't even made it to the second story yet. The first one all on its own is just that good!


  1. Love the opening! Claire's reaction to the magazine article creates an impression of her and makes me want to find out more. Both books sound like Christmas stories I'd enjoy.
    Thank you for stopping by my blog. Your comments are appreciated.

  2. This sounds like a good story. I often do my beginnings and 56s before starting the book but I've never had your problem. I am reading Enemy Games by Marcella Burnard from my TBR mountain this week. Happy reading!

  3. This sounds like such a good story, and a perfect book to read in December. Thanks for mentioning it.

  4. Sounds good and glad you got your mystery solved. :)


  5. We're getting into a good time of year for this now! :)

    Thanks for visiting my blog earlier.

    1. Hahaha! Finally! No more complaints about it being too early! LOL ;)
