If packed supermarkets, runny noses, rising heating bills and endless amounts of wrapping are putting a serious damper on your festive vibes, then I highly recommend that you read Lovelight Farms by B.K. Borison. It’s the perfect Christmas Eve read.
“I’m going to love her in all the quiet ways, the slow ways, the loud and obnoxious ways.”
Lovelight Farms is just as wonderfully cheesy as it sounds. It’s a cosy Christmas romantic comedy featuring an adorable small-town (think Stars Hollow), witty dialogue, a Christmas tree farm, a hostile family of raccoons, delicious baked goods and endless amounts of hazelnut lattes. It’s warm, fuzzy and surprisingly streamy Christmas caper that I couldn’t help but fall in love with. Yes, it’s slightly predictable but I couldn’t care less, in fact, it was exactly what I needed this December.
Stella Bloom is in dire financial straits. In order to save the Christmas tree farm she’s loved since she was little, she decides to enter a competition for the chance of winning £100k and a ton of publicity across social media for her struggling business. The only catch is that she’s lied on the application. In order for her struggling farm to seem like the perfect romantic winter wonderland she’d always dreamed of she said she owns it with her boyfriend. In steps her more than willing best friend Luka.
I’m not usually a fan of friends-to-lovers or miscommunication tropes (give me a morally grey villain any day of the week), but Lovelight Farms is the perfect mixture of the two. It’s achingly sweet to watch these two childhood friends slowly realise what everyone and their cat has already known for years – they are head-over-heels in love with each other.
Lovelight Farms is the first book in a series of interconnected standalones following the three Lovelight owners, all of which are currently available on Kindle Unlimited.0
