The Christmas Secret by Karen Swan

Alex Hyde is an efficient, effective, successful business coach who knows how to get results. That is until she meets Lochlan Farquhar, CEO of Kentallen whisky distillery. Set in present day Scotland around a small community, this book is about keeping family secrets and an unlikely romance. 

Alex and Lochlan butt heads the instant they meet, but something is slowly simmering underneath which makes for feisty chemistry. While Alex tries to help Lochlan save his business, he can’t wait to see the back of her, until tragedy strikes.

It took a while for me to get into the book, but when I got nearer the end I did read into the night to see how it would finish. If you love classic Christmas romantic reads then this is the book for you.
