*BLOG TOUR* Christmas at Lock Keepers Cottage – Lucy Coleman ★★★★

Blurb; Imogen Tolliman never knew her mother. And when an accident robs Immi of her father too, she goes to live with her grandfather, Tollie, in his picturesque lock-keeper’s cottage by the Aysbury marina.

Tollie is the star of the Santa Ahoy Special each Christmas – a festive boat ride along the canal that enthralls both children and adults alike. And as Immi grows up, she starts to appreciate the magical community she is lucky enough to live in.

When Immi meets Gray Adams, she instantly realises he’s someone special. And as their relationship gets serious, they start to plan for the Christmas to beat all Christmases.

But as the day approaches, and the romantic snow showers turn into blizzards, their dream of a Christmas to remember, looks set to be one they’ll never forget – for all the wrong reasons. Can they salvage the festivities, or will old secrets that are finally uncovered turn Immi’s life upside down forever?

My Review; My first Christmas book of 2020. Christmas in July (that’s when I read it)! It took me a few chapters to get into it but once I was I didn’t want to put it down. It has the cutest little town with a canal. A beautiful community which comes together in hard times and its Christmas! What could be better?
The perfect festive read with a beautiful ending. The perfect Christmas celebrated with friends and family. It comes with a few ups and downs as expected but it all turned out okay. Felt a little wierd to be reading a festive book in July but it cheered me up and I’ve already started my Christmas shopping. A lovely read.

A well deserved four stars. Highly recommend. Maybe nearer Christmas though.
