Return to the Buckingham Hotel in Anton Du Beke’s sparkling new novel . . .
When fiercely independent chambermaid Nancy Nettleton first moved to London and the Buckingham hotel, the last thing on her mind was finding love, let alone falling for the debonair demonstration dancer Raymond de Guise.
As the festive season approaches, life at the exclusive hotel is busier than ever, with guests arriving from around the world, seeking comfort, relaxation and refuge as tensions build across Europe and it looks like another war is imminent.
Behind the scenes, the staff work tirelessly, ensuring the smooth operation of the hotel, guarding the secrets of their guests – but they have many of their own that they fear will be revealed. As the band strikes up in the Grand Ballroom to celebrate the nuptials of Raymond and Nancy, one thing is certain – this will be a Christmas to remember.
Hello my loves,
I hope you’re all keeping safe, well, and looking after yourselves in these most unsettling times. Perhaps I can offer some exciting news – and welcome escapism – to look forward to amidst the ongoing lockdowns, isolations, and quarantines!…
I’m delighted to announce that my third novel: ‘A Christmas to Remember’ is due to be published on the 29th October, and is available to pre-order from today!
Pre-order now, available 29th October:
A message from yours truly!…
Following on from my Sunday Times bestselling debut, ‘One Enchanted Evening‘, then ‘Moonlight Over Mayfair‘ which was shortlisted for the Historical Romantic Novel Award, ‘A Christmas to Remember’ rejoins our favourite characters: Raymond de Guise and Nancy Nettleton, Hélène, Frank, Vivienne, Billy, Mrs Moffatt – all under Maynard Charles’ managerial watch in the exclusive Buckingham Hotel with its magnificent Grand Ballroom.
Secrets, announcements, revelations and celebrations come to the fore in these next chapters of their lives – with the spectre of war growing ever closer.
Once again, there are special copies personally signed by me available to reserve now – so do click through and secure yours!
My publishers inform me that they’ll do their best to organise a book signing tour again, but of course, with restrictions in place and Strictly in the coming months, this could prove to be a challenge! Nevertheless, keep tabs on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and my mailing list to stay in the loop with all the news and announcements!
In the meantime, why not enjoy some of my lockdown dance lessons and excercise classes – all available to watch for free on my YouTube Channel…
Learn the American Smooth — Cha Cha Cha — Foxtrot — Quickstep — Rumba — Tango — Waltz — you’ll find all these and more in my Elevenses With Anton series… then have a go at Fit At 50 if you’re looking for a home workout to try!
…And I’m sure you’ll forgive me the plug, but I’m also so thrilled that Erin and I will be returning to theatres nationwide early next year with our new Tour for 2021 – Showtime! Full details and booking links can be found here at antonanderinlive.co.uk – plus, dates are now set for a fabulous range of dance breaks next year too – see here for all the listings.
Lots to look forward to, dates for our diaries, and a good book to whisk us all away this coming wintertime – sounds perfect! And if you haven’t already read ‘One Enchanted Evening’ or ‘Moonlight Over Mayfair’, now’s your chance – there’s plenty of time to catch up with them before ‘A Christmas to Remember’ comes out – enjoy!
Stay safe and well, my loves,
