* Book REVIEW/ Snowflakes and Christmas cakes by Lindsey Paley


One thing that a lot of people don't know about me is my love for reading. Reading was always a passion of mine when I was young girl to teenager years and as I've got older I haven't read as much as I would like but I still enjoy a good book. When Jenny from jenny in Neverland tweeted about a book tour. I jumped to the opportunity. I was a little late and I think she gave me a extra space but I was so happy that I got to review this new book by Lindsey Paley called Snowflakes and Christmas cakes.

So what you really want to know is what I thought. Right ?

If you get to the end of this post there's a giveaway to win 1 E book copy of Snow flakes and Christmas cakes. UK ONLY


I new from the front cover  I would love it. Books like these really want me to keep going. I read this book in Three nights and instantly new this was going to be a good review. Why I loved this book is because you could get in touch with the characters of the book. I love that there is also a romance side to it. Who doesn't like a good romance. In the beginning she chooses to spend Christmas  with her sister and her family. But her sister begs her to take her place at a cookery school. You can tell she doesn't really want to be there. Doesn't help she doesn't get on with the estate manager. You can tell she longs for south of France. Does she settle in you will have to read it to find out.

This book is a really good and I enjoyed spending my nights reading it. I love the feel of it and I love that its such a easy and enjoyable read. This book would be good from any teens to adult hood. I will definitely be catching up on the other books from the series. Lindsey paley is really a talented writer who makes reading enjoyable. Even if you don't like reading you will enjoy this.

When all-round buttercream princess, Millie Carter, becomes stranded at Craiglea Manor Cookery School, she believes her chance of enjoying a merry festive season is over.

The village of Aisford is Christmas-card perfect, but Millie hates it - she hates the snow, her freezing fingertips, and being forced to look like her Aunt Marjory in a mud-splattered wax jacket and wellies instead of her beloved shorts and sparkly sandals. 

She plots her escape but ends up locking spatulas with the estate manager, Fergus McKenzie, who is forced to rescue her before she succumbs to a severe dose of hypothermia. Things start to improve with the arrival of handsome Sam Morgan, fresh from the beaches and rum shacks of the Caribbean. 

Can Millie accept her fate? And will Aisford sprinkle some of its seasonal magic on her troubles? 
Snowflakes and Christmas Cakes is a festive story of love and friendship and reaching for the buttercream icing and edible glitter when life gets tough.
