Twelve Books for Christmas: Day 3 – A Not So Quiet Christmas by Suzie Tullett

It’s Day 3 of my Twelve Books for Christmas blog, where I introduce you to twelve romance books to warm your heart and make you feel all Christmassy. 🙂 They’ll all make wonderful presents for a friend, or you could even treat yourself. Today’s festive treat is the popular romcom A Not So Quiet Christmas by Suzie Tullett.


A solo getaway at an English country cottage is a pleasant way to spend the holiday—but it takes two to really make things merry . . .

Antonia prefers a quiet Christmas. She’s happy to spend it on her own, watching Hallmark holiday movies in her pyjamas, eating what she wants, when she wants.

Antonia’s friend Jules, on the other hand, loves a big Christmas celebration and plans on travelling to the Yorkshire Dales for a festive break. But when Jules breaks her leg, she persuades Antonia to make the trip on her behalf. Arriving at the little cottage, Antonia meets the handsome property agent Oliver. But she can’t escape the weird locals—or avoid embarrassing situations like mistaking a cow for a burglar.

As Christmas approaches, the attraction between Oliver and Antonia grows. She could choose to return to the bustling city and spend it alone. Or she could choose love and have a not so quiet Christmas . . .

Welcome, Suzie. Your book sounds fun. When does Christmas begin for you? When do you put up your Christmas tree?

Christmas always begins on December 1st. That’s when the Christmas playlist goes on, the first bottle of Baileys is opened, and the tree is decorated. Then I spend the following weeks baking mince pies, making a Christmas cake, writing out cards, and wrapping presents. It’s a frantic yet fun time and leaving everything until December is a necessary measure when it comes to managing my excitement. I blooming adore Christmastime.

Do you go mad with the decorations or do you just put up a tree?

I go mad with the tree decorating, which is why our Christmas tree could never be described as stylish.

What is your earliest Christmas memory?

I grew up with two sisters and a mum who believed that what one got, we all got. It’s no wonder my earliest Christmas memory is of coming downstairs one Christmas morning to find three exact same prams, each containing an exact same doll waiting for us.

What is your favourite Christmas tradition?

I couldn’t possibly choose. I love everything about Christmas.

Which author, dead or alive, would you like to invite for Christmas dinner?

I’d invite Agatha Christie. Not only was she a fascinating woman, hiding a notorious secret, we could organise an after dinner Christmas-themed murder mystery to entertain everyone.

If you could travel anywhere you want in the world where would you like to spend Christmas day?

In Lapland. With Santa and his reindeers! Can you imagine how wonderful that would be?

What would make a perfect Christmas for you?

My family is spread across Europe and although we meet up as often as we can, thanks to everyone’s work commitments, it’s not as often as I’d like. My perfect Christmas would be for us all to spend the holiday together.  

That does sound a perfect Christmas, Suzie.
