Spotlight and Giveaway: Christmas in London

With the holidays right around the corner, what better way to get in the mood than with Anita Hughes' latest novel, Christmas in London?!? Thanks to St. Martin's Press, we have TWO copies to give away!

It’s a week before Christmas and Louisa Graham is working twelve hour shifts at a bakery on Manhattan's Lower East Side. When a young cooking show assistant comes in from the rain and begs to buy all the cinnamon rolls on her tray, she doesn’t know what to do. Louisa is just the baker, and they aren't hers to sell. But the show burned the rolls they were supposed to film that day, so she agrees.

The next morning, Louisa finds out that her cinnamon rolls were a hit, but the host was allergic, and the whole crew is supposed to leave for London that afternoon. They want Louisa to step in for their annual Christmas Eve Dinner TV special at Claridge's. It’s a great opportunity, and Digby Bunting, Louisa’s famous baking idol, will be there. Even if he does seem more interested in her than her food.

And then there’s Kate, the show's beautiful producer. On their first day in London she runs into the skinny boy she jilted at St. Andrew's in Scotland ten years ago. Now he’s a handsome, brilliant mathematician, and newly divorced. Their familiar spark is still there, but so is the scar of how they left things. Kate and Louisa are busy preparing for the show, but old and new flames are complicating their work.


Anita Hughes is the author of Monarch Beach, Market Street, Lake Como, French Coast, Rome in Love, Island in the Sea, Santorini Sunsets, Emerald Coast, and Christmas in Paris. She attended UC Berkeley’s Masters in Creative Writing Program, and lives in Dana Point, California where she is at work on her next novel.

I would love to spend Christmas in Hawaii because I have always wanted to live there. I am always looking at pictures of Hawaii and at Christmas it seems even more special and unique. I loved this book, Christmas in London. I need to get a copy for my shelf so I can read it again.

I would love to spend Christmas in Paris. I studied in Avignon during my junior year of college. I returned to the States in December. My friends and I spent the night in Paris before leaving. It was so beautiful and magical. I’d love to go back for the entire Christmas week!

I would love to go to London with Paris a close second. I’ve been to London in the Spring and Summer and think Christmas would be amazing! Unfortunately as long as my career choice is in retail it won’t happen for awhile.

Vienna Austria: wintry weather, music and wonderful Christmas markets

I would love to spend the winter holiday season in Prague. I was fortunate to be able to visit several years ago, in the late spring. ...But, I was only there for less than 24 hours-- really, only overnight! (It all started when I walked too far south of the train station in Vienna... [Long story... :p ]) I promised myself that I would return some day. The city was magic to me. I can only imagine how wondrous it might be this time of year.
