A Christmas Cracker - Trisha Ashley

About the book...
This Christmas is about to go off with a bang!

Things can’t possibly get worse for Tabby. Framed for her boss’s dodgy dealings, she’s landed up in prison. Then Tabby’s boyfriend dumps her and gives her cat away to a shelter.

But rescue comes in the form of Mercy. A master of saving waifs and strays, Mercy wants Tabby to breathe new flair into her ailing cracker business. Together, they’ll save Marwood’s Magical Christmas Crackers.

But someone’s not happy. Mercy’s nephew Randal thinks Tabby’s a fraudster. Stubborn, difficult and very attractive, her future depends upon winning him round. Standing under the mistletoe, Tabby’s Christmas is set to be one that she will never forget . . .




About the author...
Trisha Ashley is now a full-time novelist, but she has been known to work for stained glass makers and/or plumbers. She likes to paint, eat, drink, and read literary biographies. Her previous hobbies included getting divorced and packing to move. She claims to have once actually eaten Bronte burgers at the Branwell café, but her publisher declines to verify this. She lives in North Wales.









Words from Trisha's editor...
As far as I’m concerned, it’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas! So imagine my delight when Trisha Ashley delivered her latest novel, A Christmas Cracker, and I had the opportunity to be the first person to read it! What a treat that was! The heroine Tabby is the most gorgeous of protagonists, but she’s found herself in a bit of a sticky situation - on the wrong side of the law for a crime she didn’t commit. And so when kindly Mercy, who has a penchant for rescuing waifs and strays, takes Tabby under her wing and asks her to help breathe new life into her company’s failing cracker business, be prepared for the warmth and quirky humour that lovers of Trisha Ashley novels know so well. And did I mention that Mercy has a dashing nephew, Randal? I wonder if there might be a little romance on the cards too . . . you never know J

So if you’re looking for the cosiest, funniest read this Christmas, look no further than A Christmas Cracker. Curled up with a mug of hot chocolate, in front of a roaring fire, it will warm the cockles of your heart and get you into the Christmas spirit in no time at all.
