Sarah Perry recommends Christmas at Frozen Falls by Kiley Dunbar. "2019 was an extremely difficult and stressful year for me, personally. By the time I made it to December, I was ready to say 'goodbye' to 2019 and start fresh in 2020. I came across the book, Christmas at Frozen Falls and thought it sounded cute, so I bought it and read it before Christmas. I can't remember the last time a book just made me feel happy."

Sylvie Magnusson is going to be lonely this Christmas. Instead of jetting off with fiancé Cole for their honeymoon in paradise, she's freezing at home while trying to ignore everyone's pity for that poor jilted Ms Magnusson'. Guess that's what happens when your fiancé calls off the wedding with one week to go.
Enter Nari, Sylvie's best friend, who plans a trip to Lapland to see the Northern Lights and get Sylvie's mojo back. But as their Lapland getaway approaches, Sylvie realises she'll be holidaying in the hometown of Stellan Virtanen, her dreamy Finnish ex-boyfriend, the one that got away. Even though he actually ran away, and Sylvie never understood why.
When Stellan and Sylvie are reunited in the town of Frozen Falls, she's delighted to see that he's just as hot as she remembers and when he shows her the romantic delights of Lapland, he becomes the perfect medicine for her broken heart. But as she prepares to fly back to England can she really leave Stellan behind? Or will she find that her heart belongs in the frozen North?
