Christmas Promises at the Little Wedding Shop (The Little Wedding Shop at the Sea #4)– by Jane Linfoot

My own copy
Original Cover

The blurb:

The charming fourth book in the best selling ‘The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea’ series

Christmas arrives at Brides by the Sea, Cornwall’s enchanting and most adorable little wedding shop.

There’s nothing more magical than a winter wonderland wedding, and the girls are determined to make this festive season their most romantic yet.

The champagne is on ice while the mistletoe is hanging from every nook, and the exquisite lace and pearl-encrusted dresses, glistening like the frosted shop windows, are waiting to be chosen.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and romance is most definitely in the crisp winter air- with promises, proposals and Christmas kisses aplenty…

What will the season bring, in this enchanting fourth book of ‘The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea’ series?

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Christmas Promises at the Little Wedding Shop is the forth book in Jane Linfoot’s The Little Wedding Shop at the Sea series. I really like this series and I was very happy to be back, especially around Christmas time.

We are introduced to a new character: Holly. She is surrounded by all these familiar characters and they come together in this story. It was so great to catch up with them and see what they are going through right now. There is plenty of romance and friendship included and the festive atmosphere is unique.

Into the mixture comes Rory. And some weddings. Rory and Holly have great chemistry. It was never clear though, who she was going to end up with.

This book is flirty, fun and very quirky. I really enjoyed it.

My unpopular opinions

There has been this thing going on on twitter, about sharing your unpopular opinions. It’s about things you have a strong opinion about, but you’re the only who seems to think that. Here is a collection of mine:

-       I don’t like cheese.
-       Why does everything have to be rose gold when it comes to blogging?!
-       Adele is highly overrated and she her singing technique is wrong.
-       Ryan Gosling is ok, but not more, not my type at all. He is a great actor though.
-       Football (American) is boring and not interesting to watch at all.
-       Why is everyone so obsessed with Love Island? Terrible show.
-       I don’t like pumpkin spice latte.
-       I don’t like fake nails and I think white nail polish looks like tipp-ex.
-       I love the heat, total summer girl right here!?
-       English breakfast tea is disgusting and I never put milk in my tea.
-       I don’t always vote, only when I’m interested in the topic and know everything about it.
-       I didn’t like the movie LaLa Land at all.
-       Roller-coasters are not fun! Rides are not my thing; they make me feel sick.
-       I try to avoid movies with Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller, I just don’t like them.
-       I don’t like dark chocolate.
Everyone has his/her own opinion and that’s totally okay, because we are all individuals. Tell me about your unpopular opinions.

No-one Ever Has Sex on Christmas Day – by Tracy Bloom

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Don’t you always plan the perfect Christmas? 
Don’t you always think it will be the best one ever? 
And doesn’t something – usually one of your loved ones – always come along and screw it up? 

Katy’s been spending too much time in the office and not enough time with her family so she wants it all: snow (fake or real), the Michael Bublé Christmas album, whatever it takes. 

There’s only one thing missing as far as her husband Ben is concerned: another baby to complete their family. Katy isn’t so sure… 

Ben may be playing the role of Master Elf in the pre-school nativity but he is struggling to master his own family life. With romantically-challenged friends, an ex who refuses to go away and Katy's mum's 64-year-old toy boy thrown into the mix, Christmas looks like it could be going off the rails… Never mind family planning, can Katy and Ben even plan to make it to the end of Christmas Day? 

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

This book is part of a series, I haven’t read the two previous books, but I have read a Tracy Bloom book before, so I wanted to give this a go.

I really enjoyed this story, but I think I would have enjoyed it even more after reading the first two books of the series.

The story follows Katy and Ben. They are married and have a daughter. Katy is very busy at work and a great opportunity comes up for her. Ben is a teacher at pre-school and really wants another baby. Katy has other things on her mind though.

On top of that there are Katy’s mum and toy boy coming for Christmas and some of their friends play an important role in this book too.
And then there is Matthew, Katy’s ex. Matthew and his pregnant wife Alison add to the story as well.

The book has a great mixture of characters and there are so many LOL moments and it’s a very entertaining read. The storyline has a wonderful flow and a lot of sparkly elements.
