Unwrap and enjoy this bite-sized Christmas treat from bestselling author Sarah Bennett. The perfect stocking-filler!

Christmas is a time for love, laughter, families and friends, and in Mermaids Point, everyone is getting ready for the festive season.

For Nerissa and Tom, this will be their first Christmas as a couple, but making sure they have time for each other, whilst blending their families, will take some careful planning. What festive traditions will they make their own?

Laurie and Jake are flat out running Laurie’s seafront café, packaging up orders of mince pies, sausage rolls and other delectable Christmas goodies, as well as finding time for Jake’s journalism. But when Jake’s mum offers them an unexpected gift, their plans are turned upside down.

Alex can’t help but be charmed by beautiful and talented Ivy, but he’s still recovering from his ex-wife’s betrayal and has a secret life he’s not ready to share with anyone yet. But as the Christmas spirit starts weaving its magic, Alex may find himself ready for love sooner than he imagines.

For Andrew, nothing is more important than family. As friends and family gather beneath his roof it's a time for reflection about what the future might hold.

As far as Nick is concerned, pop sensation Aurora Storm is the ‘one that got away’. After they shared a brief holiday fling, he has been thinking about her ever since. Is Christmas the perfect time to finally reach out to her, or is love at first sight just in fairy-tales?

Sarah Bennett captures the joy of Christmas perfectly in these captivating vignettes. Christmas Surprises at Mermaids Point is a guaranteed joy for fans of Mermaids Point and new readers alike.

My Review:

Christmas Surprises at Mermaids Point by Sarah Bennett is a heartwarming and charming novella that acts as an epilogue to the first two books in her Mermaid Point series, Summer Kisses at Mermaid Point and Autumn Dreams at Mermaid Point.  And also acts as a prologue to her next two books as she sets the scene for at least two more stories.  

We meet up with all the characters of Mermaid point and see what they are up to as they prepare for Christmas at Mermaid point.  We look again at Tom and Nerissa and Jake and Laurie and see how those romances are moving along.  We also take a glimpse at Ivy and Alex who has a connection, but nothing has been done about it yet.  And we also look at Nick and Aurora and see what they are up to in their very separate lives (for now?).  

I enjoyed re-visiting the characters of Mermaid Point and Christmas Surprises at Mermaid point only makes me want to read the rest of the series as soon as possible. 

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has read and enjoyed the other books in the Mermaid Point series. I received a complimentary copy of this book.  The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

    I’m assuming that as this cute novella is the third story in the series, it shouldn’t really be read before reading the previous books.
    Mermaids Point sounds like a lovely series.
