Snowflakes at Mistletoe Cottage || Blog Tour

On a grey, London day, Esme’s world crumbles around her when she loses her glitzy job on a top TV programme, her gorgeous, city-slicker boyfriend and her stunning apartment, all in one fell swoop just before Christmas.

Esme is forced suddenly to move back to her sleepy hometown of Sandchester, and despite the snow blanketing the roof and the fairy lights that twinkle in her rustic little cottage, everything is looking bleak. That is until she reconnects with an old crush and finds herself unexpectedly getting swept away.

But Joe, handsome and charming as he is, is not all he seems. Esme soon realises that he has a tragic past which he just might not be able to overcome…

 Surrounded by her loving, if harebrained, family and with the support of her hilarious friends, Esme is determined to have a go at forging her own path, even if it all comes to nothing. But one question still lingers in her mind: will she find someone to kiss under the mistletoe this Christmas?


Review
I have been a fan of Katie Ginger for some time, and when i saw the chance to read this - i mean look at the title? Right?? That is a bit of me. Its a bit later than planned i know but here are my thoughts on this delightful read.

We meet Esme as the world around her is crumbling, when her recipe is stolen and her boyfriend wants to call an end to their five year relationship, just when Esme thought he was going to propose. 

With no other option, Esme returns home and with the help and support of her best friend - she needs a new life plan (not that she had that much of one before either!) 

Happily finding herself once more and becoming an independent stronger woman seems to be the route she is taking but then there is Joe, Joe who she fancied the pants off at school. Joe he seems quite happy to help her settle down, but seems to be holding back.

This is told from multiple POV and i really enjoyed it because we got to see what even the not so likeable characters thoughts were. I mean, i was not really a fan of Leo at all, but i liked seeing what he was going through since he left Esme. Its not often we ger that perspective in a book, it was refreshing.

I loved spending time with Esme and her delicious food, i mean i need to try that epic sausage roll, like yesterday. She had a fantastic bunch of friends who were just as mad and lovely as Esme. I could just picture watching her cooking youtube. 

This was a delightful read with warmth, passion, friendship and like i said - epic sounding sausage rolls. One to add to your winter TBR.

Author Bio –
KATIE GINGER lives in the South East of England, by the sea, and apart from holidays to very hot places where you can sit by a pool and drink cocktails as big your head, she wouldn't really want to be anywhere else. Snowflakes at Mistletoe Cottage is her third novel. She is also author of the Seafront series - The Little Theatre on the Seafront, shortlisted for the Katie Fforde Debut Novel of the Year award, and Summer Season on the Seafront.
When she's not writing, Katie spends her time drinking gin, or with her husband, trying to keep alive her two children: Ellie, who believes everything in life should be performed like a musical number from a West End show; and Sam, who is basically a monkey with a boy's face. And there's also their adorable King Charles Spaniel, Wotsit (yes, he is named after the crisps!).
