When Jenny inherits her estranged grandmother’s cottage in Sherwood Forest, she has nothing to lose – no money, no job, no friends, no family to speak of, and zero self-respect. Things can only get better…

Her grumpy, but decidedly handsome new neighbour, Mack, has a habit of bestowing unsolicited good deeds on her. And when Jenny is welcomed into a rather unusual book club, life seems to finally be getting more interesting.

Instead of reading, the members pledge to complete individual challenges before Christmas: from finding new love, learning to bake, to completing a daredevil bucket list. Jenny can’t resist joining in, and soon a year of friendship and laughter, tears and regrets unfolds in the most unexpected ways.

Warm, wise, funny and utterly uplifting, what one thing would you change in your life before Christmas comes around?

Jenny was hoping for a marriage proposal, instead she finds herself single, homeless, and without a job. Luckily, her mother gives her the keys to her grandmother’s house in Sherwood Forest, in big need of renovation after six years of abandonment. Thanks to her friendly and generous nature, Jenny quickly finds new friends, a job as nanny of five handful children, and an hilarious book club where challenges take the place of books. Her life is far from boring as she has to deal with a grumpy neighbour who helps her despite her protests, a persistent real estate agent, and family secrets to uncover.

Funny, entertaining, and full of amazing characters, Christmas Every Day is a fantastic rom-com and I really enjoyed it. I loved the small-town setting and the close-community atmosphere that welcome Jenny in Sherwood Forest. I laughed a lot and there is romance, friendship, and family, all together is this fabulous book.

I really liked the character of Jenny. She is fun, resilient, and loyal. She doesn’t let a neglected cottage full of old and dump stuff deter her from her goal. I liked how she developed and grew through the story, how she achieved what she wanted and she didn’t let bullies stop her.

Although the novel is not set at Christmas time, but throughout the year, the title is fitting and to find out why you really need to read it. If you are looking for a fun and refreshing story, then pick up Christmas Every Day!
