Patrick Yearly – a Lonely Dog on Christmas

Too sweet not to share. A lighthearted quick read portraying the festive celebrations told by the family’s bulldog. Refreshing to read of the chaos of Christmas rather than the usual picture postcard version often seen in movies and books.

Miss Kane’s Christmas – Caroline Mickelson

If this doesn’t give you some Christmas spirit nothing will. Think Mary Poppins mixed with all your favourite Christmas movies mixed up into one and put in a book. A short read for an afternoon snuggled up on the sofa when the reality of Christmas has got too much for you. Switch off with the magic of the season – 2 adorable children, a sad, grumpy single dad and a gorgeous au pair aka Santa’s daughter. Yes, it’s candy canes and gingerbread men all the way. Guaranteed to make the grown up in you feel like a child.

Jennifer Joyce – A Beginner’s Guide to Christmas 

A very quick read that is perfect for Christmas Eve. It makes you realise that all our families and Christmases run along a similar vein. A definate case of humour in truth.

Stella Wilkinson – A Christmas Gift

I hadn’t realised it was for young adults with the characters only being in their teens, but this 20 minute read transfers ok to any age audience as we’ve all experienced that unrequited first love. Pleasant quick read.

MAN AND WOMAN SIOLHOUETTE KISSING UNDER A RED UMBRELLA

A Christmas Bake Off – Abby Clements

A quick read (less than an hour) showing the competitive nature of some of the participants in a village bake-off competition. Pleasant read in the lead up to the festive season when time is of short supply but you need to switch off. Be warned reading this book will make you either want to eat vast amounts of cake or get baking yourself which is handy as there are some recipes at the end. Do check out Meet me Under the Mistletoe too.

A Very Country Christmas by Zara Stonely

Set around a manor house and stables Lottie had planned a quiet romantic Christmas Day with her new fiancé but circumstances dictated that she ended up with a houseful of guests instead. Plenty of horses, dogs and country gossip. A pleasant 2.5 hour read.

6 Geese a Laying by Sophie Kinsella

A free 10 minute Kindle read from the Shopaholic author about an antenatal group due to give birth at Xmas. A light but moral story.

A Cornish Christmas Reunion by Laura Briggs

If you like the Cornwall stories and enjoyed A Christmas in Cornwall you may like to check out this follow up.  A quick 2 hour read that emphasises the importance of telling people how you feel before it’s too late.

Mo Mo  Mo! Merry Christmas Maureen by Jonathon Hill

This free politically-incorrect slapstick comedy is a quick half-hour read from the author of the Maureen series. It is about a larger lady who becomes a stand-in Santa and ends up in A and E.

I hope you enjoy these.  The great thing about free books on Amazon Kindle is that it gives you the opportunity to check out new authors without risk. I often find I go on to buy the whole back catalogue from an author that I’ve discovered after downloading a free book.

Do check out my other posts for more Christmas chick lit and Christmas women’s fiction reading suggestions. Again most are at a budget price, which is important at this time of year.

You may also like an older post I wrote about how to legally get free books whilst supporting authors.
