Haunting, magical and sparkling with Christmas spirit, One Christmas Morning is a festive love story with a difference . . . A warm and powerful debut' Holly Miller, The Sight of You

One Christmas Morning is the debut novel by Rachel Greenlaw. It follows the story of overworked, overwrought Eva, who is desperately trying to get her 'baby,' a luxury homewares shop, launched just after Christmas. The only problem is .. well, everything else. Because she's been working all the hours God sends, all her relationships including her marriage, are beginning to deteriorate around her. Her husband James has demanded that she take some time off over Christmas to spend away with their best friends at an old house in Cornwall Eva used to visit as a child with her grandmother. The strength of One Christmas Morning lies in its well-developed characters, each possessing their own flaws, dreams, and desires. As the story unfolds, their relationships evolve in a refreshingly realistic manner, showcasing the complexities of human connections. Readers will find themselves emotionally invested in the characters' journeys, rooting for their growth and transformation. Hayes said: “ One Christmas Morning is a beautifully transformative and festive tale of love, self-discovery and second chances. From the moment I met Eva, it was love at first sight. Rachel takes us on a spellbindingly emotional journey with her writing and by the end I didn’t want to let go. I can’t wait to share Eva’s story with readers next year.” This was a really good story, with a sliding door take and a Christmas Carol vibe. This romance will make you question your life choices, much the same as the character does, at times it was rather sad and quite emotional. With a complex storyline, the plot is slowly revealed as Eva sees herself through the guests at the Christmas party's eyes.The characters in "One Christmas Morning" are well-drawn and relatable. Eva's transformation throughout the story is believable and touching, and the supporting cast adds depth and nuance to the narrative. The relationships between the characters are explored with care, emphasizing the strength found in friendship and the significance of second chances. Poignant, clever, exceptional – with a light sprinkling of Christmas magic. Loved it.’ Milly Johnson, Together, Again

This was a magical read full of emotion and warmth. Some readers might find the topics incredibly emotive but the magic of the plot helps to soften such sensitive subjects. By the closing, it is impossible to ignore the feelings of warmth and contentment… although this might have been down to re-living Christmas dinner so many times! The book I didn't know I needed to read - gorgeous, Christmassy and compelling” - Ella Allbright, The Last CharmI received this ARC from @netgalley and @hqstories just in time for December and it was more of an emotional rollercoaster than I was expecting! The writing style is engaging, capturing the essence of the holiday season and evoking emotions in the readers. The author's descriptions create a vivid and immersive world that draws readers into Eva's journey of self-reflection and redemption. HarperCollins Children’s Books has acquired the “highly original and beguiling” YA debut of Rachel Greenlaw in her Compass and Blade fantasy trilogy. Greenlaw, whose first adult novel One Christmas Morning will be published by HQ in 2023, said: “Publishing stories in the YA space has been a long-held dream. Megan and the rest of the team have already been incredible, and I can’t wait to bring a whole trilogy of romantic fantasy stories inspired by my island home to readers.”

In truth, this novel was a grower; the more I read, the more invested I came into Eva’s story. Honestly, I didn’t really like Eva at the beginning and I think Greenlaw wants readers to dislike her. She is completely obsessed with her business, treating those around her incredibly poorly – from her suffering assistant to her husband of many years. Although she has been invited to a Christmas party in Cornwall, she is estranged from her friends because of how much she has immersed herself in her work – and Eva knows this is her doing. Yet, as far as she is concerned, it is all work, work, work, regardless of the day of the year and the hurt is causes to her nearest and dearest.
