All I Want For Christmas

What if the love of your life was your best friend’s girlfriend, and you were the one that set them up?

When 30-year-old Nick loses his prestigious job at a city law firm, he is forced to grudgingly accept work as a Santa at a local Christmas grotto.

There he meets 5-year-old Alfie, and all Alfie wants for Christmas is for his mum to be happy again. She has been sad ever since his dad died three years ago. Moved by the boy’s selfless wish, Nick arranges a date between Alfie’s mum, Sarah, and his best friend, Matt.

However, as Sarah and Alfie become an integral part of their lives, Nick soon realises that happiness for Sarah and Matt might mean heartbreak for himself.

A hilarious and heartwarming Christmas romance for fans of Beth O’Leary’s The Flatshare and Marian Keyes’ Grown Ups.
