Hey everyone, I hope you are staying warm and cozy during this cold fall as we are forced to dive into a frosty winter. My go to philosophy during the cold is to hibernate with a book and a cup of hot cocoa. The book I have to share with you is a humorous story to jump start the Christmas spirit.
Snow Angels, Secrets and Christmas Cake by Sue Watson
Tamsin Angel is used to the finer things in life. Fancy clothes, the perfect house and has the plans for a Winter Wonderland Christmas set in motion. Her only concerns were to get her home ready for the holiday, take the perfect family photo and hold everything together.
Easier said than done, her husband Simon was working late again and it would be another year of having him Photoshopped into the family photo.
When the door chimed she thought it was Simon and that he must have been able to able to get away from work after all.
To her shocking surprise, it was not Simon but two bailiffs with a possessive warrant to take her home. At first, she thought it must be a big misunderstanding but was quickly informed her husband had known for weeks.
Within a split second she had lost her home and was penniless.
Her sister Sam offered Tamsin a place to stay with her and Sam's son Jacob.
Sam Angel lived a more modest life caring for her son and running her own business, The White Angel Bakery. While Sam is a hard worker and continues to put one foot in front of the other she struggles to let her boyfriend Richard into her heart. After losing her husband Steve, years before.
While the two sisters live under the same roof they are both faced with challenges they must over come. With all that life throws at them will they rise together or fall apart?
I liked this book and it was very funny through out the book. It pulled me in with its humor but I found it difficult for the story to keep its grip on my attention.
Best Wishes Always,
