This is the first of my Christmas stories to help me get in the mood for the festive season. 'A Dog for Christmas' was a charming little book and a bit of a will the good guy get the girl type story. You could imagine Hugh Grant or Colin Firth playing the character of Josh Michaels if it were to be made into a film. A very easy read I had read the first one hundred pages on Sunday, but then unfortunately had to go to work but could easily of continued reading if time had permitted and finished before today. Contains all the usual, highs and lows, heartache and romance, tears and joy.
