Christmas At The Chalet by Anita Hughes | Book Review

I find that I am really enjoying Anita Hughes’s books. Christmas At The Chalet is the third book I’ve read by Hughes. While it won’t make my top favorite books of all time list or top favorite books about Christmas list, it did scratch a small itch for me. It is quite a glamourous sort of read about wealthy people and quite the escapist romp.

Christmas At The Chalet is set in St. Moritz, Switzerland which is basically in the Alps. It’s essentially a winter playground for the wealthy. Felicity Grant is a bridal designer from New York City and she’s about to debut her upcoming collection at her own fashion show in St. Moritz. Meanwhile, one of her models, Nell, is having a terrible time getting her divorced parents to both attend her wedding. They refuse to be in the same room together. Both of her parents happen to be in St. Moritz vacationing. Back to Felicity, she’s angry because her boyfriend of six years, Adam just won’t commit and ask her to marry him. She experiences an injury. So, she just so happens to meet a doctor named Gabriel who is handsome and has excellent listening skills.

Overall, Christmas At The Chalet is a very quick read about rich people problems. Normally, that is not exactly my jam. However, the way Hughes describes the food and the setting was just so sumptuous that I ignored my typical disdain and got into this book. I did like how hard working Felicity was and how she struggled to follow her heart and to not just stay settled because she’s been in a relationship for a long time.

Well, this book is called Christmas At The Chalet but it actually takes place the week after Christmas. So, it's not like we have tree decorating or the lead up to the holidays or Santa.

On A Scale Of One To Buddy The Elf, How Much Christmas Spirit Does This Book Have?

Well, this book is called Christmas At The Chalet but it actually takes place the week after Christmas. So, it’s not like we have tree decorating or the lead up to the holidays or Santa. So, that was a bit of a let down. However, there’s toboggan rides and delicious food and shopping and skiing. There’s also folktales a plenty. I think that this has some good post holiday spirit. It is maybe a book you want to pick up in the week from Christmas to New Years where you still have that holiday glow but also are thinking about taking down the tree and getting back to real life.
