Release Blitz | A Christmas Surprise by Samantha March (@BySamanthaMarch)

01 November 2016

Read on to find out all you need to know about A Christmas Surprise and read my review of the book.


Juliette Mabry is a happily married stay-at-home wife and mother...until there appears to be trouble brewing in her nearly ten-year marriage. Juliette takes it upon herself to find out if her husband is up to no good, but does she want to know the truth? Everything is revealed on Christmas, and Juliette is in for her biggest Christmas surprise.


Samantha's latest release is a holiday-themed novella called A Christmas Surprise, it opens up early in the year and follows Juliette, a woman who lives in a well to do area and has everything she could wish for: a loving husband, a beautiful son and an amazing friend but after overhearing some gossip she convinces herself her loving husband is having an affair.

This isn't your ordinary Christmas story and I loved that, it mainly focuses on the idea of a woman thinking her husband is having an affair and develops from there. Juliette is somewhat a reformed character having gone from being a chief gossiper to not gossiping after a devastating event in the community so it was interesting to see what she was going through from that point of view and I honestly think it changed how she went about what she had discovered.

I loved the scenes between Juliette and her son, they were so adorably cute together and you could see and feel just how much she loved her son! And the ending was lovely, I was never 100% sure whether her husband was having an affair or not and I loved the ending. So. Much. Cute.

I would definitely reccommend this book if you're looking for something different to the usual cosy Christmas themed reads.
