*BLOG TOUR* The Ticklemore Christmas Toy Shop – Liz Davies ★★★★★

Blurb; You’re never too old to fall in love…

There is a disturbance in the force and octogenarian Hattie Jenkins can feel it in her water. Still active and spritely, she guesses that the miserable-looking gentleman sitting morosely in the café where she works, might be the reason.

Widowed Alfred Miller has recently moved in with his daughter because she is worried that he’s becoming too frail and forgetful to look after himself. And he’s not in the least bit happy about it, especially since his home is soon be cleared and sold.

But when he enlists Hattie’s help to save some of his precious belongings, he doesn’t realise that Hattie’s mission is to save more than a few sticks of furniture. She’s on a mission to save him, too.

My Review; Happy Publication Day. This is one I would urge you all to add to your upcoming Christmas piles. Well worth it and you won’t regret it. It’s bloody brilliant and here’s why…

The two main characters Hattie and Alfred and both OAPS, both widows and both lonely. They come together in the most unlikely of ways and both their lives change over toys! But not just any toys… These are beautiful, rare and handmade olden toys. I instantly fell in love with both of them. I really did. I just wanted to cuddle them both.

It’s a romantic comedy with Christmas thrown in making it a perfect read. It’s bound to make you smile and giggle in parts. It’s a real uplifting read. I enjoyed every minute of it. I loved it all especially the ending. It’s a story about friendships, love and the community coming together. Amazing. Just cause you’re old that doesn’t mean life has to stop…

I cannot recommend this book enough. A well deserved five stars from me. Highly recommend. May even end up in my top 20 reads of the year.

*BLOG TOUR* The Winter We Met – Samantha Tonge ★★★★

Blurb; When charming, mysterious Nik sits next to Jess on a plane home from a Christmas toy trade fair, she never could have imagined the impact he’d have on her life. As they touch down in London, Jess is hesitant to let Nik walk away, and before she knows it, she’s invited him to visit.

As the two take in the delights of the toy store where she works, Jess gets an upsetting phone call. Willow Court, her Grandmother’s care home, is to close before Christmas. Jess is determined to find the perfect new home for her Gran – and throw the best Christmas party Willow Court has ever seen!

But time is running out with the closure looming and Jess becomes increasingly drawn to enigmatic Nik who joins forces with her and best friend Oliver to realise those plans.

Will a chance encounter on an aeroplane bring love to Jess’s life or is this Christmas miracle too good to be true?

My Review; Happy Publication Day. I loved this. From the start I was just intrigued about this Nik guy, how they met and just what would happen in general. However, I did have a few doubts about him myself kind of a too good to be true thing. Part chick-lit, romance and Christmas makes a perfect cosy read in these current dark nights!

And THERE’S A DOG! We all love dogs right? I loved everything about this story. The OAPS, the OAP home, the characters and the setting. The big finale/party is what it all comes to in the end. A book full of love, hope, friendship and new beginnings. Was all just perfect to me. Brilliantly written and a easy, light read for me. I love the cover too! A well deserved four stars. Highly recommend.
