The Christmas Promise -Sue Moorcroft ★★★★

Blurb; On a snowy December evening, Sam Jermyn steps into the life of bespoke hat maker Ava. Sparks fly, and not necessarily the good ones.

Times are tough for Ava – she’s struggling to make ends meet, her ex-boyfriend is a bully, and worst of all, it’s nearly Christmas.

So when Sam commissions Ava to make a hat for someone special, she makes a promise that will change her life. She just doesn’t know it yet…

My Review; Well, its nearly Christmas so I decided to dive into this story. The cover is beautiful! Now I must admit this is not your average romantic, uplifting Christmas story. This is a story that is very different. It contains the subject of cancer within and contains blackmail throughout the first half of the story which does make it a bit of a downer to read and enjoy. 

However, it is also a one of a kind story that includes main character Ava, a couture millinery (hat maker) which I have never read about before! While we are talking about characters I must say that I fell in love with Sam from the beginning what a gentleman! But… I had a strong dislike for Harvey. 

If you’re looking for a happy, uplifting, excited for Christmas book this is not it. However, it is still a good read which is why I awarded four stars. It is written well and easy to read. I would recommend you all check this book out. I will be reading more by Sue in the future.
