I really loved this book. It really can't be Christmas until I have read a book by Karen schaler and Karen Swan. This book did not disappoint. I loved it because it has all the right Christmas aspects you need in a good Christmas book. Love, finding new family and friends and those little dramas in life that we always suffer from. This book had me engrossed from the very start and was so close to getting that 5th star. It was an amazing page turning novel. I just loved the storyline as there was plenty of exciting and a brilliant roller coaster ride of ups and downs. There were so great unexpected events. I loved how this book included a Christmas competition between 2 rival little towns. It definitely made for some great reading. The book was packed full of amazing community spirit that wrapped me up in the story like a nice warm hug. The characters were great, relatable and believable. They developed well throughout the story. I loved how the weather messed up the best laid plans. The ending was great and it made the book feel complete. I definitely recommend this book if you love cosy Christmas stories with plenty going on. This book will definitely get you in the mood for Christmas.
So much praise goes out to the author and publishers for creating such an engrossing to lose yourself in. I will definitely be looking out for more books by this very talented author.
