It’s the hap-happiest season of all! With melt-in-the-mouth macaroons and perfect profiteroles in The Parisian Christmas Bake Off, and a wonderfully unexpected romance in Winter’s Fairytale, this lovely Christmas collection is sure to leave hearts glowing.
The Parisian Christmas Bake Off
Rachel Smithson is determined to be Paris’s next patisserie apprentice. Judge Henri Salernes may be a tough cookie but Rachel has come too far from her cosy English village to let her confidence crumble! And along with the flour, cinnamon and sugar, there’s definitely a touch of Christmas magic in the air…
When a sudden blanketing of snow leaves Izzy stranded just before Christmas, she's in desperate need of a rescue. But that doesn't mean a cosy weekend with Rob in his swanky flat, watching London become a winter wonderland! Because Izzy and Rob have history and Izzy isn’t ready to go there, yet…
About the author
Maxine has wanted to be a writer for as long as she can remember and wrote her first (very short) book for school when she was ten.
As time went by, she continued to write, but 'normal' work often got in the way. She has written articles on a variety of subjects, as well as a local history book on Brighton. However, novels are her first love.
In August 2015, she won Harper Collins/Carina UK's 'Write Christmas' competition with her first romantic comedy, 'Winter's Fairytale'.
Maxine lives on the south coast of England, and when not wrangling with words loves to read, sew and listen to podcasts. Being a fan of tea and cake, she can (should!) also be found doing something vaguely physical at the gym.
