Well it’s the Almost Christmas Eve and if your anything like me there is nothing better than to snuggle up with a good Christmas themed novel, with the Christmas playlist playing softly in the background and relaxing in front of the fire…
Here are some of Les Rêveur top picks for getting into the Christmas Spirit…
Top 5 Christmas Themed Lesbian Fiction
1. All I want for Christmas by Clare Lydon
All I Want for Christmas is the ultimate Christmas novel. It’s a great romance with a main character that is obsessed by Christmas but the best part is that it’s a feel good novel that lifts you up and gets your excited for the festive season. 100% the best Christmas Lesbian novel i have ever read… It needs to be in your stocking!
2. Under a Falling Star by Jae
Accidents happen… but this accident leads to a connection nether protagonist expects. First day of Austen’s new job and she is put to task by decorating the Christmas tree. When the tree topper falls and hit’s Dee on the head Austen doesn’t know that Dee is intact the infamous COO of the company who has the nickname Attila the Hun! But Austen gets to know the person behind the facade and begins to fall deeply for her! But how can a relationship with the boss work?
Great story and actually a lot of fun to read… The christmas theme was just a added bonus but a great one.
3. Fresh Tracks by Georgia Beers
Another Georgia Beers must read novel. Five woman join their friends Jo and Amy at their Cabin in the wood over the Christmas Holidays no one knew that the lives and loves of these woman would be put to the test over the seven days they spend together.
Full of Christmas joy and lots of drama that take you on a journey of love. Great novel with the usual Georgia Beers remarkable writing.
Look out for my review of Fresh Tracks in January 2017
4. Chasing the Brighter Blue by Gerri Hall
I fell onto this book purely by chance and loved it. The book is based around a family wedding taking place in a resort in Colorado over Christmas. Regan is home from Afghanistan where she was working as a photojournalist and is in Colorado to attend her brothers wedding. She doesn’t realise that one the first night when flirting with a woman at the bar that 1. her family own the resort she’s staying at and 2. She’s the sister of the woman her brother s about to marry. This book is oozing with christmas fun and ultimately true love.

5. Winters Harbor by Aurora Rey
Lia has fled New York after her Partner of Ten Years was unfaithful. Lia decides to spend the Winter in Provincetown getting reacquainted with herself. It’s not only the delectable pasties at the local cafe that has Lia salivating but the cafe owner, Alex. Both woman are captivated with one another but can it be more than a Winter Fling?
This novel isn’t necessarily a christmas themed novel but there is many scenes that embrace the festive season and it always leaves me feeling warm and christmassy and because of that deserved a spot in the Top 5.
