Description

I really liked the premise of this book—a woman finds community, friendship and her future after the devastating loss of her beloved mother on Christmas Eve. Her delicious food soon brings the villagers together, and as each day passes, old friendships are renewed, memories stirred and there's even the flickering of romance.

Born in Walthamstow in 1836, Morris was captivated by nature from childhood, spending much of his time exploring Epping Forest and the surrounding countryside. Meaning to only be in Middlemass for a short while Freya is finding the idea of leaving more and more difficult by the day but with nothing left for her here why would she ever stay? There is a lot to like about this book, but the main character, Freya, was so preoccupied with weight, gaining weight or appearing to have gained weight that it killed the vibe for me each time it happened. The character I found the most interesting was Holly's grandmother, though she only really featured through entries from her diary that Holly was reading. This one is made even better by the running theme of food and honestly had me salivating throughout - props to the author for the recipes at the end too!With a sprinkling of festive, illustrative magic, Jane Ray has created a timeless version of this traditional Christmas verse. It's an excellent read and if you are looking for a festive romance with a difference this is the book for you!

Se a queste cose aggiungiamo il fatto che la nostra "lei" sembri incastrarsi perfettamente nella vita dei Martland in maniera quasi impressionante, il nostro bel ragazzone non può che rimanerne sbalordito e sempre più incuriosito da ciò che potrebbe nascondere la sua cuoca favorita. Julia is infuriated by her grumpy neighbour, Cain, who can't even be pleasant when they bump into each other. Personaggi che non vivono in un mondo perfetto ma che conoscono le sfumature della vita, i dolori che inevitabilmente si susseguono nella vita di ognuno, non rinunciando però a viverla lo stesso a trecento sessanta gradi, come facciamo noi tutti ogni giorno. What then follows is a lovely story which looks at the bonds of friendship and the importance of valuing those people around us. Each spread focuses on a different day, with wonderful illustrations of Santa spending time with family and friends.

Trisha Ashley creates some wonderful heart warming characters that stay with you long after finishing the book and not forgetting the humour which really made me smile on more than one occasion. She has worked there for 10 years, following her dream but it is extremely hard work and long hours. At the moment, I committed to myself to publish a post twice a week, reading, reviewing and writing about books. With a pinch of sorrow, a cup of friendship, and a dash of romance all mixed together, The 12 Days of Christmas is a beautifully written festive story.

There's the romance with Finn, Freya's love for food and the challenge Finn sets for her is so fun and creative. I finished this book feeling as though I've read this boring narrative about how to cook and clean and take care of animals!Se dapprima il nostro Jude pensava che la ragazza fosse solo un'avida persona, con il passare dei giorni si rende conto che la nostra Holly nasconde dentro di se' un mondo unico e particolare, un mondo con dolori che in parte anche il nostro scultore sente suoi. The richly coloured and intricately detailed pictures are a joy to behold and readers young and old will be captivated and delighted by the developing story. I really loved the writing, and in terms of emotional engagement, the author has the perfect touch – that strong focus on friendship and family that I unfailingly adore, along with the moving authenticity of the developing relationship between Finn and Freya. Foodies will love some of the food and descriptions mentioned, especially since Finn lives above and runs his own Deli and has a wonderful array of local produce for sale.
