“Don’t you just hate Christmas? Well maybe you don’t. I mean, what is it that makes people so sentimental at this time of year? There are the gruesome office parties of course, which if I am truthful I did once enjoy, well always enjoyed in fact, until this year. Actually, if I am totally truthful, I adore Christmas or at least did.”

~ Wedding Cake to Turin by Lynda Renham

When Charlotte is sent by her boss to deliver a wedding cake to Turin little does she know what she will be letting herself in for.

  1. Thanks so much for participating in FLF, Cathy.

    Hmmm, I wonder what happened to change the character's view on Christmas. That first line sure piqued my interest. I adore this cover too.
