    Description

    'This was where her dreams drifted to if she didn't blot her nights out with drink; this was where her thoughts settled if she didn't fill her days with chat. She remembered this tiny, remote foreign village on a molecular level and the sight of it soaked into her like water into sand, because this was where her old life had ended and her new one had begun.'

    Portobello - home to the world-famous street market, Notting Hill Carnival and Clem Alderton. She's the queen of the scene, the girl everyone wants to be or be with. But beneath the morning-after makeup, Clem is keeping a secret, and when she goes too far one reckless night she endangers everything - her home, her job and even her adored brother's love.

    Portofino - a place of wild beauty and old-school glamour. Clem has been here once before and vowed never to return. But when a handsome stranger asks Clem to restore a neglected villa, it seems like the answer to her problems - if she can just face up to her past.

    Claridge's - at Christmas. Clem is back in London working on a special commission for London's grandest hotel. But is this really where her heart lies?

    Christmas at Claridge's is a glamorous contemporary romance by the best-selling Karen Swan, author of Christmas in the Snow.

    So good!!

    Imogen Church has become one of my favorite narrators! The story was fantastic (though I wasn’t expecting to cry) and it was funny and thoughtful and just all around lovely.

    Could have been great!

    Great storyline but the female lead is too ditzy and confused. I detest story’s that depict women as stupid, insipid creatures. The narrator was horrible. I ended up skipping to the end because I just couldn’t take it anymore.

    Could not root for the main character

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Halfway through, I kept wanting to return the book, just did not like the main character enough to root for her

    What was most disappointing about Karen Swan’s story?

    I read 2 of Karen Swan's books and loved them, but this book, it was so hard to root or like the main character, by 2/3 to 3/4 of the book I felt I should keep trudging forward wanting to redeem this main character and like her, but by the time the book ended, I was frustrated and felt I wasted my time. Not one of her best story or character.

    My Reader's Choice of the Year Award

    What did you love best about Christmas at Claridge's?

    I loved how real these characters were. I loved the family - who first appeared heavily dysfunctional but were really devoted to the core. It shows the hard choices we each make in the name of love.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Clem because of her resolve and her heart.

    What does Imogen Church bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The nuances of each character's conflicts

    If you could rename Christmas at Claridge's, what would you call it?

    Not sure. I've given it a lot of thought but Christmas at Claridge's was not accurate. Christmas was such a tiny part.

    Any additional comments?

    It's not just a little Christmas story. I think it's a disservice to lump it in with Christmas stories. I really became involved and emotional and I will miss these people. ***** Their business revolves around leather hides. It's not talked about in detail or even spoken often but if that bothers you as a vegan or otherwise, you just might get uncomfortable. Still, don't throw away this wonderful story for that reason, IMHO.

    Durchhalten wird belohnt!!! :-)

    Ich habe schon mehrere Bücher von Karen Swan gehört und habe festgestellt, dass es zwei Kategorien von Protagonistinnen gibt. In der ersten Kategorie findet man nette, freundliche Charaktere, die man von Anfang an mag. In der zweiten Kategorie findet man Protagonistinnen die einem (zu Anfang) unsympathisch sind. Clem, die Hauptfigur in diesem Roman, fand ich in der ersten Hälfte des Buches unsympathisch, kindisch, oberflächlich und total verzogen. In der zweiten Hälfte des Buches war sie mir so sympathisch, wie kaum eine andere Hauptfigur in Karen Swans Büchern. Die Autorin macht die Handlung der Person nachvollziehbar und die charakterliche Weiterentwicklung so liebenswert, dass man Clem einfach mögen musste. Mein Tipp: kaufen, hören und durchhalten. Nach ungefähr der Hälfte des Buches ist dies ein Hörbuch, was man nicht mehr weglegen mag. Die Sprecherin gefiel mir sehr gut, da sie die Emotionen der Personen sehr gut interpretiert.
