This has been my first festive read of the season and my first into this genre, i have always look at reads like this but never given them a chance. After also hitting a reading slump this came along at a fab time. We meet Frankie, Bella and Winnie who are working hard to keep those safe and life spirits during the festive time whilst dealing with their own troubles but with the help of each others friendships they can get through most things.
This is a beautifully written uplifting book, the description to me is the stand out, in my head i could visually see everything, i could picture the cobbled streets, the endless mugs of tea, it just really worked for me. I love a book that is like a movie in my head and this ticked all the boxes.
It was a read that came along to lift my spirits, to read something slightly different and this was that. I wouldnt hestitate to reccomend this to anyone, it was just the perfect dark nights read. The girls friendships shone through, how they interacted with each other, and supported each other, it was a real case of girl power.

Author Bio – Rosie Hendry lives by the sea in Norfolk with her husband, two children, chickens and a snake. She's worked in a variety of jobs from fruit picking, waitressing, teaching and as a research scientist but has always loving reading and writing. Starting off writing short stories for women's magazines, her stories have gradually become longer as her children have grown bigger.

Listening to her father's tales of life during the Second World War sparked Rosie's interest in this period and she's especially intrigued by how women’s lives changed during the war years. She loves researching further, searching out gems of real-life events which inspire her writing.

When she's not working, Rosie enjoys walking along the beach, reading and is grateful for the fact that her husband is a much better cook than her.
