A gripping and heartwarming novel, from the bestselling author of Christmas Under the Stars.They say that behind every great man, there's a great woman, and behind London's most powerful leaders, there stands only one - Alex Hyde, Business Coach par excellence. She's the woman they turn to for advice and strategy when the pressure gets too much, her number on speed dial, her mantras in their heads. She can change the way they think, how they operate, she can turn around the very fortunes of their companies. So when she gets a call asking for her services, offering an unbelievable sum to discreetly manage a family member from the board of an esteemed whisky company in Scotland, it's business as usual. She can do this in her sleep. Only, she's never met anyone like Lochlan Burr before. CEO of Kentallen Distilleries, he's also the son and heir of the company's founder, a boy reared to greatness, a man for whom there is no ?no'. He's a maverick, an enigma, a renegade, and Alex needs to get inside his head before he brings the company to its knees. But as she tasks herself with finding a way in, she finds she's the one being manoeuvred; for once, she isn't in control. And when she stumbles across a chance discovery that changes everything, she's suddenly not so sure she should be.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not my Fav but still good for anyone who sees Karen Swan's books and thinks they will be Christmas oriented because it is in the title, it won't be. I've read Christmas at Tiffany's, which I really enjoyed, and now this one and they are not about Christmas. I did not enjoy this one as much as Christmas at Tiffany's. The romance part felt rushed and packed in at the end and just unrealistic so it was hard to buy into. Still not a terrible read but just not my favourite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great Christmas story! I’ve read almost all of Karen Swan’s books and so far I haven’t been disappointed. I always read one at Christmas time. Just like all of Swan’s books, I could not put this one down either! Can’t wait to read her next book!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Another X-mas Story from Swan I always enjoy Karen Swan's books but thought this story was not as strong as her previous ones. Some obvious plot twists and standard misunderstandings between the male and female leads. Did not find the characters as sympathetic as her earlier books.
