The Christmas Spirit by Susan Buchanan

Christmas is coming, but not everyone is looking forward to it.
Rebecca has just been dumped and the prospect of spending the holiday period with her parents is less than appealing.
Eighty- two year old Stanley lost his beloved wife, Edie, to cancer. How will he cope with his first Christmas without her?
Jacob’s university degree hasn’t helped him get a job, and it looks like he’ll still be signing on come New Year.
Workaholic Meredith would rather spend December 25th at home alone with a ready meal and a DVD box set. Can anything make her embrace the spirit of the season?
The enigmatic Natalie Hope takes over the reins at the Sugar and Spice bakery and café in an attempt to spread some festive cheer and restore Christmas spirit, but will she succeed?
From Goodreads.

This was very enjoyable and of course full of Christmas spirit. The things that happen to the four characters don't seem too far-fetched although Natalie Hope is a different  thing all together. I didn't realise that the book was set just outside Glasgow in a fictive town with view over Loch Lomond. I do like it when books mention places I know of. I have lived in Glasgow and canoed on Loch Lomond many times, it is a really beautiful area.
