Hello readers! Welcome back to my blog, for today’s Blogmas upload and a quick apology note for not posting for a few days. I’m really sorry that I haven’t been very active here, but I’m planning to get back onto the Blogmas train shortly!
I’m participating in an exciting blog tour for a new festive release: 25 Days Til Christmas! As always, my blog tour post will contain a quick spoiler-free review, as well as purchase links and more information about the novel. Thanks again for stopping by and enjoy reading!
Release Date: November 29th 2018 (Kindle/E-book)
A contemporary, emotional, but ultimately feel-good, festive up-lit novel for fans of Jenny Colgan, Debbie Johnson, and Holly Martin.
Kate Potter used to love Christmas. A few years ago she would have been wrapping her presents in September and baking mince pies on Halloween, counting down to the countdown to Christmas. But a few years ago, everything was different. That was before Kate’s husband went away with the army and didn’t come home. Now she can hardly stand December at all.
Kate’s lonely. She doesn’t think she’s ready for romance, but she needs more than this, and her son Jack needs a Christmas to remember. What Kate needs is a Christmas miracle, and if there isn’t one on its way, she’ll just have to make her own.
So begins Kate’s advent countdown to the best Christmas ever.
She has it all planned out, but you can’t plan for the unexpected, and when the path of the loneliest woman in town crosses with that of the loneliest man, she just might find a way to save Christmas for all of them…

REVIEW: This was a really good festive read, with a very local setting to me (Bristol, England). Kate and her six year old son Jack experience a lot of hardship throughout the novel but with the arrival of a mysterious man, his character was truly a heart of gold. I think we all need someone like ‘him’ in our lives. The novel itself was not only festive, but really opened my eyes to current issues such as lack of funding and zero-hours contracts. It was well-researched and has a array of characters that kept the story-line interesting. It is long but do take your time to immerse yourself in and you will find yourself transported just like I was. Hard-hitting but at the same time, a book I couldn’t put down.
Thank you so much to Poppy and the team at Orion Books for letting me be a part of the tour. See you all soon with some new posts!
