So, October and Autumn has arrived and also the start of the festive books. I have started to see a few reviews of the upcoming festive books for 2017, and I already have my eye on a few of them. The new book by Emily Harvale is set to be a real cracker.

CHRISTMAS SECRETS AT SNOWFLAKE COVE. 

Christmas Secrets In Snowflake Cove Cover Reveal.jpg

Description:

Christmas is a time for family and friends, miracles and magic, falling snow and roaring fires, fun, laughter and festive feasts. In Snowflake Cove, it’s also a time for secrets to be revealed…


Evie Starr is hoping for more than a sprinkling of magic this Christmas. The family-run Snowflake Inn is virtually empty and the Starr’s financial future isn’t looking bright. But Evie’s gran, Jessie has a secret that might help. Enigmatic, Zachary Thorn is every woman’s dream. He’s also ex-SAS, so his secrets are classified. The Christmas Special of his feel-good, TV show is set in Michaelmas Bay – until a phone call means he’s spending Christmas in nearby Snowflake Cove.

Evie’s best friend, Juniper thinks boyfriend Darren has a secret. Evie knows he does. And Evie’s niece, Raven is hiding feelings for Juniper’s brother – who has a secret crush of his own. But the biggest secret in Snowflake Cove is the identity of Raven’s dad. With snow falling thick and fast and secrets being revealed one after another, will everyone be snuggling up by the fire on Christmas Eve, or are some secrets best kept hidden…?

Christmas Confessions & Cocktails by Vicki Lesage. Blog Tour, Review & Competition.

Christmas Confessions & Cocktails by Vicki Lesage. Blog Tour, Review & Competition.

Christmas Confessions & Cocktails by Vicki Lesage

I’m very happy to be part of this lovely festive blog tour, woo hoo its nearly Christmas. Time to relax, give and receive gifts, eat, drink and read! Vicki Lesage brought me very swiftly into my Festive spirit with this collection of short stories.

-Blog Tour-

Description:

Party girl Vicki tells it like it us, from her crazy Christmases growing up in the Midwest (book auction, anyone?) to her even crazier holidays in her new home of Paris (like a marathon 8-hour meal sitting on a stool). Bizarre gifts, weird food, and holiday travel disasters are just some of tales you’ll chuckle at in this collection.

This Christmas-themed memoir features 25 funny and heartwarming essays, all with a tenuous tie to Christmas, and pairs each with a delicious drink recipe. So grab your martini shaker and get ready for some great cocktails and some hearty laughs this holiday season!

My Thoughts:

This is the first Christmas book I have read this year, and I have to say it did get me into the Christmas spirit. The Author tells short stories of her Christmas themed experiences. There are funny, heart warming and festive. To round each story off there is a cocktail recipe that is in some way related to the story. I liked these recipes a lot! I got some nice ideas for cocktails I might make over the festive season. My favourite cocktail was mentioned actually!

Grasshopper. -creme de cacao.

                          – creme de menthe.

                          –  vanilla vodka.

                          – half-and-half. (I usually used cream here!).

A lot of the stories were based in Paris, so we hear some French traditions, some nice and some seem very strange to me being British, but it was a good insight into French festivities. 

I think this is a good book to get into the Christmas spirit and perfect if you just want quick reads. You can read one of her tales or you can just keep reading all the 25 tales in the book. It was kind of like a girly chat with a friend you haven’t seen for a while, a great catch up of funny and light hearted tales. Beware though, it will make you feel like cocktails, there are even mini cartoon cocktail pictures after each chapter (kindle version).

Description:

When newly-single party girl Vicki moved to Paris, she was hoping to indulge in wine, stuff her face with croissants, and fall in love. It proved to be much more difficile than she’d imagined. In this laugh-out-loud memoir, this cheeky storyteller recounts the highs and lows of her life in the City of Light. Sassy and shamefully honest, Vicki makes you feel as if you’re right there in Paris stumbling along the cobblestones with her.

Will she find love? Will she learn to consume reasonable amounts of alcohol? Will the French administration ever cut her a break?

A funny memoir about coming of age and embarking on a new life in Paris. Part travel memoir, part love story, this collection of funny essays.
