Blurb: The first short story in the fun & flirty #LoveLondon series from exciting new chick lit author Nikki Moore!

There’s nothing Holly Winterlake loves more than Christmas and skating, so working as an Ice Marshall at London's Somerset House is a dream come true.

Noel Summerford hates the festive season and is a disaster on the ice, so taking his godson to Somerset House is his idea of the nightmare before Christmas!

Things are bound to get interesting when these two collide…

With a forty foot Christmas tree, an assortment of well meaning friends and relatives, and a mad chocolate Labrador, will this festive season be one to remember … or forget?

*First of all I would like to thank the publishers for sending me a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.*

Review: Skating at Somerset House is the first novella in the new #LoveLondon series by author Nikki Moore. And what a lovely beginning for the series. I found this short story really cute and festive. The two main characters, Holly and Noel, are a joy to read about and even if their first encounter is far from a succes, you can feel the sparks flying between them. I loved the banter between them and how they started to warm to each other, especially Noel, who seemed a bit brusque and moody and turned out to be a lot of fun. 

I loved how well developed the characters were. Nikki wrote about their past and the reasons why they were who they were and this let us understand them better. And the secondary characters were a delight too, especially little Jasper (key to the story) and Holly's parents and their lovely dog.

Skating at Somerset House really has this feel-good, festive atmosphere that will leave you smiling. Perfect for a cold evening during the holidays. I can't wait to find out more about the characters in the second book of the series, New Year at The Ritz, out in a couple of weeks.
