Gratefully received from the Publisher for review
I tried to do a top ten for 2015, but I just couldn’t narrow it down, it’s been a great year for books, so who can blame me? Just a note, I am indecisive so these books are in no particular order.
1. One Wish in Manhattan by Mandy Baggott
This book was one of the first Christmas books I read this year, and I started well! Magical, heart warming, funny and simply a great read all around!
2. Our Song by Dani Atkins
Never read any of Dani Atkins’ books before, but have heard only good things about them, and if this book is anything to go by, I’ve been missing out! Make sure to grab some tissues though, 2 boxes should cover it!
3. A Very Big House in the Country by Claire Sandy
Loved Claire Sandy’s previous book ‘What would Mary Berry Do?’ and this one is just as good. Full of secrets, but with Claire’s stand out humour you are compelled to read more and more.
When sisters Nessie and Sam inherit a little pub in a beautiful country village they jump at the chance to escape their messy lives and start afresh. But when they arrive at the Star and Sixpence, it’s not quite what they imagined – it’s pretty much derelict, ruined by debts, and it’s going to be a huge job to get it up and running again.
It’s just before Christmas but they are determined to relaunch on New Year’s Eve, to bring the new year in with a bang. But with nosy neighbours, miserable locals and no money to contend with, it’s not going to be easy.
And when the sisters’ past comes back to haunt them, they start to think that the fresh start they needed is very far away indeed…
Curl up with Snowdrops at the Star and Sixpence – the perfect novella for those winter nights.
