*** ANITA HUGHES celebrates the Holidays with us ***


Anita Hughes is the author of over a dozen novels that take readers to exotic locales such as Paris, Rome, St. Barts, Monarch Beach, the Hamptons and this Christmas season, we jet off of to St. Moritz, Switzerland. In CHRISTMAS AT THE CHALET (St.Martin’sPress), New York bridal designer Felicity Grant is showing her eighth and most glamorous bridal collection at the five-star, Badrutt’s Palace Hotel.

CHRISTMAS AT THE CHALET takes place over the seven days before the event. It’s a blur of mouth-watering cuisine, high couture, the absolute A-list and of course, romance! It’s everything readers have come to expect from an Anita Hughes novel. Felicity is most excited to unveil her organza bridal gown with diamond snowflake buttons, but first, she’s going to need a Christmas miracle.

Between writing and writing more, Anita took some time to tell us her thoughts about the Holidays.


  1. What is your favorite Holiday?

My favorite holiday is Christmas because all five of my children come and we spend a whole week together!


  1. What do you love about the Holidays?

I love being with my family and I love holiday decorations. Everything looks so festive and people are generally in a good mood.


  1. What is your fondest Holiday memory?

When my children were young they would sing Christmas carols for the whole family on Christmas Eve. They would wear Christmas pajamas and we would all drink hot apple cider and it was a lot of fun.


  1. What are your wishes for 2019?

I wish for good health and happiness for all my friends and family!

  1. Family and a meal. Only my partner, my daughter and her new guy will be together. Sometimes sad holiday since family members have passed.

  2. I always love Anita’s books. She writes the best stories and always has the most beautiful covers on her books. The thing I like most about Christmas is the look on people’s faces when you get their gift just perfect. This year we picked a couple kids at church to buy for. We are hoping their Christmas will be very special since we bought them a lot of fun stuff. I think this will be our new tradition.

  3. I love the time with my family and remembering what to be thankful for. We enjoy doing a few things as a family like Christmas parades, looking at light displays and taking the kids to see Santa.

  4. Seeing the wonder in my grandsons’ eyes on Christmas morning. They go hopping from one present to another. Pure joy!


  5. Spending time with my family tops the list. I love to create memories with them so we try to attend a show or concert during our Christmas break. We went to see the Nutcracker last year so not sure what we’ll do this year.


  6. I love spending time with my family around the holiday. Christmas is the one holiday we all travel to my moms and spend together.


  7. I love having all of my family together in one place at the same time. We are scattered across the country right now and Christmas is the only time everyone is in the same place. One more month and we’ll all gather together for a few days. My joy.


  8. Watching My Kids enjoy it
    I still have one young enough to believe and seeing πŸ‘€ the Wonder and Joy 😍 on Christmas Day
    πŸŽ„β€πŸŽ…πŸ€Ά Makes My Christmas Complete
    Thanks for the chance 😍🍯🐝😍
