Happy Monday bibliophiles!
Delighted to share with you today my review for another festive story full of Christmas spirit! Big thanks to Rachel for my invitation and to Susan Buchanan for her beautiful story🎄❄️
Christmas is coming, but not everyone is looking forward to it.
Rebecca has just been dumped and the prospect of spending the holiday period with her parents is less than appealing.
Eighty- two year old Stanley lost his beloved wife, Edie, to cancer. How will he cope with his first Christmas without her?
Jacob’s university degree hasn’t helped him get a job, and it looks like he’ll still be signing on come New Year.
Workaholic Meredith would rather spend December 25th at home alone with a ready meal and a DVD box set. Can anything make her embrace the spirit of the season?
The enigmatic Natalie Hope takes over the reins at the Sugar and Spice bakery and café in an attempt to spread some festive cheer and restore Christmas spirit, but will she succeed?
this book was filled with Sugar and Spice and everything nice!❄️
I have definitely read my fair share of Christmas books this season, and it is impressive how many ways you can write a story about this time of year…. I also get to celebrate Christmas all over the world yesterday I was celebrating Christmas in New York and today I am celebrating in Scotland…. what is so nice about that is I live in Southern California where it does not snow so I get to have a white Christmas and still wear leggings a tank top and no shoes on my feet….
This delightful story was about Natalie Hope, and what an appropriate name because she definitely brought hope to many…. Natalie heads to Scotland for Christmas to help run the Sugar and Spice Café in its owners absence… while there she meets four very lovely but lonely characters…. all of these characters are down on their luck, and Natalie definitely brings HOPE into their lives…. and cake lots and lots of yummy cake, I am so craving cake now!
This little Christmas story had so much packed into it… all the characters were so well developed and they all had tremendous growth within the story…. A feel-good festive story with a splash of romance!
Absolutely recommend as the perfect book to bring some Christmas spirit into your life!❤️💚❤️💚
