In my opinion
How lovely to read a happy, funny novel- filled with delightful characters in gorgeous, seasonal surroundings.
What could be nicer than cooking Christmas goodies in Stonelea Manor, seemingly a house straight out of the pages of Country Life magazine? Accessorised by a downfall of snow, naturally!
My mouth watered as I read the programme for each day of the course, ran by celebrity chef Claudia, assisted by Millie, and I wanted to cook every recipe Daisy James described. If only the recipes were available to replicate.
I don’t usually read novels that feature Christmas (bah, humbug!) In this case, I am so happy that I made an exception. This charming novel made me feel totally Christmassy. Mince pie & mulled wine anyone?

I was curled up drinking...
A rather yummy cocktail that involved warm white chocolate dribbled down the side of the cup!
This novel has the Christmas feel good factor, it's a resounding YES from me...
