Book Review - Under the Kissing Tree by Kate Perry


For the first time in ten years, wallpaper designer Eliza Westwood accepts her grandmother's invitation to go home to Paris for Christmas. 

Big mistake. 

It seemed ideal to Eliza: go to a city she loves, and hide from the heartbreaks of the past year. But her grandmother is determined to teach her that the holidays hold the magic they once held, and that life is about love. 

Eliza knows better though, and nothing can make her believe in stardust again. Not Paris's lights, not her grandmother's fruitcake, and certainly not Xavier, the boy next door who's, now, very much a man.


This was a sweet Christmas romance.  It was an easy read, but Eliza was easy to get to know and fall for.  The style was a great fit for a short story and kept the story flowing at a nice pace.

MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy


These are a few of Kate's favorite things...

- The giggle of balloons as they rub together.
- Resting her head on her sister's shoulder.
- The sparkle of the sun setting on the Seine.
- Accordions, fiddles, the banging of drums!
- Spinning her sword in figure eights.
- The sultry confidence wearing her tango shoes.
- The splatter of bright paint on a canvas.
- The crisp joy of a mouthful of champagne.
- And, most of all, LOVE, because nothing's more important.

Kate writes about all these magical things and Happily Ever After. Her acclaimed Laurel Heights and Summerhill books are international bestsellers, as are her Fillmore & Greenwich and Summerhill series. She's been translated into several languages. All her books feature sassy, independent women who just want love and earthy men full of heart who are more than able to rise to the occasion.
