    As head of the festival committee, it falls to Tilly Sullivan to organise the annual Christmas Ball. However when the venue burns to the ground with only four days to go, she’s left with the huge task of finding a new location. But everywhere is booked solid.

    Leo Keely has the only place big enough to host the party, however he has a huge issue with Christmas...and with Australian women whose surname is Sullivan.
    A winter storm, fallen trees, and a corrupt mayor all conspire to make certain that this year's ball doesn’t happen. But Tilly isn’t a woman to give up. And if it means convincing Leo to let her use his venue, that’s what she’ll do.

    Revell’s latest addition to her wide repertoire is an utterly charming quick holiday read with all the right Bridget Jones goofiness romance readers love, minus the naughtiness. When the acting mayor of a small English town does a suspicious reverse on the beloved traditional community Christmas ball, aided by the torching of the venue, it’s up to event organizer Tilly Sullivan to sort things out. Four days until Christmas seems like enough time to switch venues but for one problem after another. At her last possible chance venue for the dance, an old manor house with a crotchety owner in residence, a storm takes out the power, her car, and she later learns, her apartment. What could get worse? Falling for the crotchety owner, of course! Twisted family history, secrets, a wise aunt and giddy youthful sister add to the fun of this story. Tilly, as you can probably guess, is an Australian transplant. Reminding Leo Keely, the bitter manor owner, that bah-humbugging Christmas is passé,

    This reader chuckled over the dedication to a cat named Tilly. On Dec 20 there’s a fire in the motel all set for the town Christmas ball, organized by Matilda. She tells acting mayor to give her until the 24th to talk about canceling and refunds for the 300 sold tickets. Tilly calls all over for another venue and then asks Leonard, who has a history with her family. He says no so she goes to his estate personally, where her car brakes fail and she wrecks a tire. He’s anti-tech so she asks to use his landline. She doesn’t stop fighting for his ballroom at Addington Hall. He repeatedly says no and she repeatedly gets sopping wet in the pouring rain. Leo’s aunt says Tilly can stay. Just as the story between her sister and Leo’s brother is about to come forth, Ms. Revell adds a surprise, which I loved. A storm causes havoc throughout the town and Tilly needs to stay at the estate. Leo softens under her influence and change is inevitable. No spoilers. This sweet romance will brighten any se

    Grab some hot tea and snuggle up in front of the fire. Tilly is in a pickle. She’s in charge of the annual Christmas ball, and when the venue is destroyed a few days before the event, she has to find a new location or she may lose her job. The only place she can think of belongs to straight-laced, Scrooge-ish Leo Keenly, who has sworn off absolutely anything to do with Christmas. Tilly is not one to submit to failure, so she approaches Leo about using his property for the ball. But he, unsurprisingly, says no. Can Tilly find a way to save her job, the Christmas ball, and a blossoming relationship with the man who hates Christmas? Fun and intriguing, Waltzing Matilda is a perfect read to get you into the Christmas mood.
