Christmas at Rachel’s Pudding Pantry By Caroline Roberts

puds 2.jpg

The first snow is falling over Primrose Farm, the mince pies are warming, and Rachel can’t wait to share a kiss under the mistletoe with her gorgeous new flame, Tom.

If only it was all comfort and joy . . . The arrival of Tom’s ex brings an unwelcome chill to the farm. And despite Master Baker Mum Jill’s valiant efforts, the new pudding pantry business is feeling the pinch.

With a spoonful of festive spirit, a cupful of goodwill with friends, and her messy, wonderful family by her side, can Rachel make this a Christmas to remember?

My Thoughts:

If your in for a festive read, this is the book for you. This one follows on from Rachel’s Pudding Pantry which you should read first to get an idea for all the characters, also it has some fantastic bakes in there too. I love how before each chapter there is a festive bake it makes it more homely. I loved the story and what goes on between Rachel and Tom. You can just imagine pulling up a seat at Primrose Farm for a wonderful Christmas dinner. Its times like this that families should be together and pull together.

Primrose Farm is Rachel’s very own slice of heaven. Come rain or shine there’s always a pot of tea brewing by the Aga, the delicious aroma of freshly baked puddings, and a chorus of happy memories drifting through the kitchen.

But the farm is in a spot of trouble. As the daffodils spring, Rachel must plant the seeds of change if she wants to keep the farm afloat, and it’s all resting on a crazy plan. She’ll need one family cook book, her Mum Jill’s baking magic – and a reason to avoid her distractingly gorgeous neighbour, Tom . . .

Swapping their wellies for aprons, can Rachel and Jill bake their way into a brighter future? The proof will be in the pudding!

My Thoughts:

What a lovely read, what more can you want when there is romance, cakes and puddings to dream about. Rachel and her family live on Primrose farm and when things get tough she and her family have to decide how to put things right so they set up the pudding pantry, you can just imagine going in there every day to see what delights they have come up with( like Frank does). Also thrown into the mix is their gorgeous neighbour Tom, will love blossom between the two? If your reading this book make sure you have a sweet treat to eat otherwise you will become very hungry.

Twas The Nightshift Before Christmas By Adam Kay

Twas The Nightshift Before Christmas By Adam Kay

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat . . . but 1.4 million NHS staff are heading off to work. In this perfect present for anyone who has ever set foot in a hospital, Adam Kay delves back into his diaries for a hilarious, horrifying and sometimes heartbreaking peek behind the blue curtain at Christmastime.

Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas is a love letter to all those who spend their festive season on the front line, removing babies and baubles from the various places they get stuck, at the most wonderful time of the year.

My Thoughts:

After previously loving This is going to hurt Adam’s previous novel I knew I was in for a real treat with this one. Some of the stories you just can’t believe people would do certain things, but hey they do! If you want an hour or two of escapism and lots and lots of laughs this is the book for you, the only downside for me that it is a short book and I could of done with a lot more stories as Adam writes them so well.

A Wedding in December By Sarah Morgan

A Wedding in December By Sarah Morgan

christmas wedding

In the snowy perfection of Aspen, the White family gathers for youngest daughter Rosie’s whirlwind Christmas wedding.

First to arrive are the bride’s parents, Maggie and Nick. Their daughter’s marriage is a milestone they are determined to celebrate wholeheartedly, but they are hiding a huge secret about their own: they are on the brink of divorce. After living apart for the last six months, the last thing they need is to be trapped together in an irresistibly romantic winter wonderland.

Rosie’s older sister Katie is also dreading the wedding. Worried that impulsive, sweet-hearted Rosie is making a mistake, Katie is determined to save her sister from herself. If only the irritatingly good-looking best man, Jordan, would stop interfering with her plans…

Bride-to-be Rosie loves her fiance but is having serious second thoughts. Except everyone has arrived – how can she tell them she’s not sure? As the big day gets closer, and emotions run even higher, this is one White family Christmas none of them will ever forget.

My Thoughts:

I am always happy when I read another of Sarah Morgan’s books, they are just utter bliss. You can just get snuggled up with a hot chocolate and escape to a world of beautiful scenery and settings. The story is set around the White family and each chapter is a different member of the family. I felt as though I was getting three stories in one which was good. I look forward to Sarah’s next book.

Through The Wall By Caroline Corcoran

Lexie’s got the perfect life. And someone else wants it…

Lexie loves her home. She feels safe and secure in it – and loved, thanks to her boyfriend Tom.

But recently, something’s not been quite right. A book out of place. A wardrobe door left open. A set of keys going missing…

Tom thinks Lexie’s going mad – but then, he’s away more often than he’s at home nowadays, so he wouldn’t understand.

Because Lexie isn’t losing it. She knows there’s someone out there watching her. And, deep down, she knows there’s nothing she can do to make them stop…

My Thoughts:

I love a creepy read, one that makes you feel shivery. You can’t wait to see what happens next. This story is about two neighbours Lexie and Harriet, they have never met but feel as though they know each other until now. Each chapter alternates between the two women so we find out their story aswell as what they think of each other.  I found the storyline very unique and think Caroline the author has done a brilliant job as this was her debut novel.

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed reading this book and a new author to me who I will be reading more of. I liked the whole idea of will they? or won’t they?

The Things We Cannot Say By Kelly Rimmer

The Things We Cannot Say By Kelly Rimmer

kelly rimmer

World War Two, Poland. Alina and Tomasz are childhood sweethearts. The night before he leaves for college, Tomasz proposes marriage. But when their village falls to the Nazis, Alina doesn’t know if Tomasz is alive or dead.

2019. Life changed beyond recognition for Alice when her son, Eddie, was born with autism spectrum disorder. She must do everything to support him, but at what cost to her family? When her cherished grandmother is hospitalised, a hidden box of mementoes reveals a tattered photo of a young man, a tiny leather shoe and a letter.

Her grandmother begs Alice to return to Poland to see what became of those she held dearest. In Poland, separated from her family, Alice begins to uncover the story her grandmother is so desperate to tell, and discovers a love that bloomed in the winter of 1942. As a painful family history comes to light, will the struggles of the past and present finally reach a heartbreaking resolution?

My Thoughts:

Wow what a powerful and emotional read. I find reading about what happened back in the day with the Nazis and the Jews interesting, this story is set in World War Two and the present day and it is a interesting read. I found it heartbreaking to learn and discover what happened to many many people back then especially when concentration camps came into the story. I found this story had a big impact on me and not one I will be forgetting in a while.
