THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER!'There’s nothing quite like a Karen Swan novel to get you in the festive mood - Seasonal escapism at its best' - Woman & HomeSnowed in for the holidays, old truths rise to the surface.

Christmas by Candlelight is a cosy Christmas story from Karen Swan, bestselling author of The Stolen Hours.

It’s three days before Christmas and starting to snow when high-flier Libby and her new boyfriend reluctantly attend her university reunion. Hosted by Archie Templeton – the heartbreaker of their group – at his grand family estate in Yorkshire, the night is a great success until they go to leave: the road is now blocked with snow. At first, being snowed in together is fun. But as hours pass everyone grows restless. Then the power goes out . . . Hunkered down together by candlelight, they reminisce about old times – and tensions soon start to rise.

Secrets from the past begin to unravel and Libby is confronted with a truth she has long tried to deny.
