Title: A Christmas Hamster

Author: Stephanie Dagg

Genre: Fiction/ Romantic Comedy/ Novella


Cam’s career and romantic prospects take a nose dive once she becomes guardian to her young nephew. She leaves a bustling Dutch city to move to a small, dull country town in England, and where once she restored magnificent old paintings to their former glory, now she operates the paint-mixing machine at a soulless hardware store. As much as she adores little Rowan, life has lost some of its sparkle.

However, a handsome and charming customer causes her heart to flutter once more. Fate, alas, seems determined to hamper any possibility of them getting together. So what chance does a tiny, naughty hamster have of bringing happiness this Christmas?

This is a festive, light-hearted and uplifting romcom novella.


My Review of A Christmas Hamster

A Christmas Hamster by Stephanie Dagg is an adorable romantic comedy for the holidays. It is super sweet as well as super cute, and just the right length to squeeze in during a busy holiday season. My holiday season is always hectic, and I greatly enjoyed the few moments I could steal away with this book. It was the perfect book to read while snuggled up on my couch with a cup of tea in the warm glow of the Christmas tree.

What made this book truly delightful for me was the great cast of animal characters. The eponymous Christmas hamster is just one of many well loved pets, including a chubby chihuahua named Goliath and the hero’s sassy cat. It is clear from her writing that the the author loves animals. Her writing glows with warmth and affection. This book was a very fun and unique Christmas romance perfect for animal lovers and fans of chick lit.

Thank you to Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Stephanie Dagg writes, “I am an English expat living in France, having moved here with my family in 2006 after fourteen years as an expat in Ireland. Taking on seventy-five acres with three lakes, two hovels and one cathedral-sized barn, not to mention an ever increasing menagerie, makes for exciting times. The current array of animals ranges from alpacas to zebra finches, with most letters of the alphabet represented. And of course there are hamsters!”

She states, “I’m a traditionally-published author of many children’s books, and have been self-publishing fiction and non-fiction for adults for the last seven years. I combine freelance work as an editor with running carp fishing lakes with husband Chris. When time allows I enjoy cycling, geocaching, knitting and gardening.”
