It’s time to get toasty by the fire with a glass of mulled wine and a slice of chocolate yule log sprinkled with a little romance. Welcome to Christmas at the Little Village Bakery.

Snow is falling in Honeybourne and Spencer is bringing home his American fiancée Tori for a traditional English Christmas with all the trimmings. But when his hippie mum and dad meet her high-maintenance parents, sparks of the wrong sort start to fly. Then Spencer bumps into his first love Jasmine and unexpected feelings come flooding back.

Millie is run off her feet with Christmas orders at the Little Village Bakery and new baby Oscar. Thank goodness her cousin Darcie is here to help her. Although she does seem to be rather flirty with Millie’s boyfriend Dylan.

Will Darcie ever find true love of her own? And is marrying Tori a terrible mistake for Spencer if his heart is with someone else?

Spencer has taken his fiance to spend the holidays in his hometown of Honeybourne. Tori who is used to the holidays in Colorado where she is from, is adjusting to life in Honeybourne. The two invited their parents to spend the holidays with them. It turns out to be disastrous and makes Spencer question his relationship with Tori. Meanwhile, other members of the Honeybourne community are working on figuring out their lives. What will happen to the members of Honeybourne? Will Spencer go through with his engagement?

In an Oyster Shell – A heartwarming holiday read that had multiple stories wrapped up in one. It was entertaining.

The Pearls –  The setting of Honeybourne England takes center stage in this story. It’s a cozy little town with quirky characters. The town is the main reason I continued on with this series. The stories of the characters are so addicting that you can’t help but read through and look forward to the next book in the series.

The multiple POV’s make for an interesting read. There are a few storylines that are going on in this book. The author does a great job of making the stories have clean transitions so the reader does not get lost.

The characters are ultimately what make this story. I love reading through the struggles. Through the good times and the awkward times. I love how the characters of Honeybourne rally around each other making a strong sense of community.

The Sand – It was a great read.

4 Pearls!

She wrote her first novel in 2007 during her first summer break at university and has not stopped writing since. She also works as a freelance fiction editor, and considers herself very lucky that this enables her to read many wonderful books before the rest of the world gets them.
