Blog Tour: The Christmas Date by Camilla Isley @rararesources @camillaisley

Happy Halloween, book friends! Yes, I’m reviewing a Christmas book on Halloween because who doesn’t love a holiday? Well, our main character in this book, that’s who! I am SO excited to be on the blog tour for this book today (hint: I love love loved it!). A big thank you to Rachel for the invitation and for introducing me to a new favorite author!


Oh how I LOVED this book! This is my first Camilla Isley book and I can’t wait to read all her others! I have been searching high and low for the perfect romcom and I’ve finally found it. Best Christmas book of the season!

Nikki is a successful, single career woman who is reluctantly going home for the holidays. After finally deciding that she’s had enough with her family questioning why she’s still single, she decides to take matters into her own hands.

I loved these characters and their antics and the oh so perfect and smoldering love interest. I mean, a beautiful man who is nice AND cleans up after himself? That’s a keeper!

This also has the perfect amount of Christmas atmosphere – from snowman building to holiday meal prep – you will find yourself catching the holiday spirit while reading.

There is something to be said about a book that can make you laugh out loud and you will find that here. If you’re like me and read for entertainment, you will most definitely find yourself entertained!

Thank you again to Rachel and Camilla. This book is now available!

No one wants to be single at the holidays.

Even Little Miss Grinch, Nikki, a successful and independent woman, must face her bachelorette status at the most horrible time of the year.

December is her personal version of holly-jolly hell: a merry torture made of couples kissing at every corner, forced vacation days, and an inescapable family reunion.

And when her baby sister announces she’s engaged—to Paul, the man Nikki is secretly in love with—and that he’s spending the holidays with them, Christmas starts looking bluer than ever.

Nikki can’t possibly survive an entire week trapped home as the family’s spinster. But she has no time to meet men or to try the newest dating app, she’s too busy working as a video producer for an advertising agency. 

So what’s a girl to do? 

Nikki has the perfect solution: to hire a fake boyfriend.

Luckily, her job gives her access to an endless catalog of gorgeous actors to choose from.

But Nikki will soon discover that keeping business and pleasure from mixing isn’t so easy, and that she might not be immune to a little mistletoe magic. Especially not when she picked out the perfect man as her Christmas date…

A fun, festive romantic comedy with lots of bad behavior and Christmas spirit. Like a creamy hot chocolate with marshmallows, you won’t want to put this deliciously hilarious novel down. Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Sally Thorne, and Jo Watson.

First Comes Love is a series of interconnected romantic novels. However, each book in the series can be read as a standalone.

about the author:

Camilla is an engineer turned writer after she quit her job to follow her husband on an adventure abroad.

She’s a cat lover, coffee addict, and shoe hoarder. Besides writing, she loves reading—duh!—cooking, watching bad TV, and going to the movies—popcorn, please. She’s a bit of a foodie, nothing too serious. A keen traveler, Camilla knows mosquitoes play a role in the ecosystem, and she doesn’t want to starve all those frog princes out there, but she could really live without them.
