It’s time to get toasty by the fire with a glass of mulled wine and a slice of chocolate yule log sprinkled with a little romance. Welcome to Christmas at the Little Village Bakery.
Snow is falling in Honeybourne and Spencer is bringing home his American fiancée Tori for a traditional English Christmas with all the trimmings. But when his hippie mum and dad meet her high-maintenance parents, sparks of the wrong sort start to fly. Then Spencer bumps into his first love Jasmine and unexpected feelings come flooding back.
Millie is run off her feet with Christmas orders at the Little Village Bakery and new baby Oscar. Thank goodness her cousin Darcie is here to help her. Although she does seem to be rather flirty with Millie’s boyfriend Dylan.
Will Darcie ever find true love of her own? And is marrying Tori a terrible mistake for Spencer if his heart is with someone else?
Having recently read The Little Village Bakery, the first book I had read by Tilly Tennant, I was eager to start this one when it came available for review. I was buzzing to get an ARC of it.
And what better time to read a Christmas book than August sat in the sun. I must admit I was kind of wanting to be there, walking in the snow, tucking into my Christmas dinner, then I had another sip of my drink applied some more sun screen and carried on reading.
What another bloody brilliant read it was too.
I loved being back with the characters, I enjoyed the fun, the banter, the gossip, the arguments. Oh I just enjoyed everything about it.
Millie and Dylan seem to be in the thick of it all, trying to run their bakery and looking after baby Oscar, but luckily for them they have Millie's cousin Darcie staying with them and she's proving to be a great help.
We have the local gossip and busybody Ruth, and I just think she's great. I chuckle each time she turns up somewhere she is not wanted. I can chuckle because she's not in my life, I have to be honest if she was a local to me I think we'd have really fallen out by now. lol.
The lovely Spencer and his wife to be Tori are back in Honeybourne and as it's Christmas what a perfect time for both of their parents to meet. Oh god I felt for both these characters, you shouldn't be embarrassed by your parents at all but I think you could make exceptions here. lol
I loved some of the other character who it was nice hearing about again, Jasmine and Rich are just wonderful, I loved Jasmine again in this book and I'm hoping book 3 (if there is going to be on) features Jasmine some more, I would love to know the outcome of her little disagreement with Rich and who actually gets their own way.
Again it was brilliant being back with such colourful and wonderful characters.
I really will be reading more from this author pretty soon.
Thank you to Netgalley, The author and the Publishers for an ARC of this book.
