Return to the Buckingham Hotel in Anton Du Beke’s sparkling new novel…
For all those of you who very kindly pre-ordered my new novel, ‘A Christmas to Remember’, I’m hoping today might feel like Christmas has come early!… I’m thrilled to say: it’s publication day!
I can’t begin to tell you how much I’ve enjoyed writing this series of novels, and I’m so excited to be able to share this third instalment with you at last. I don’t think I’m giving too much away by saying this book barrels towards a festive, celebratory climax to lift all our spirits – a Christmas to remember indeed (the title does give it away!), as a tumultuous year concludes for Raymond, Nancy, and all our favourites at the Buckingham Hotel. (Whilst it may sound a little like a finalé, I’m sure our characters wouldn’t give me a moment’s peace if I didn’t continue telling their stories, especially with war drawing ever closer and lives set to change in so many ways… Here’s another spoiler: there’s still more to come!)

Meanwhile, it’s back to the training room for me in readiness for this Saturday’s Samba with my new partner Jacqui Smith! Jacqui’s doing marvellously for a beginner – such a quick learner, I’m so impressed! That said, I’m sure she won’t mind me saying (given last week’s 13 points) that I think we may be in need of your votes this weekend!
Well, my loves, I so hope you’re all looking after yourselves and keeping safe with everything else’s that’s going on. Thankfully we’ve got some much needed escapism to look forward to as the nights draw in, with Strictly back on our screens – and of course… a particularly good book to curl up with!

Here’s to ‘A Christmas to Remember’ – on all fronts! Just imagine Archie Adams striking up his band as we step back in time, together, into the Grand Ballroom at the Buckingham Hotel – and we dance like it’s 1938!
Much love, and keeeeep reading!…
