Snow Angels, Secerts and Christmas Cake – by Sue Watson

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

For Tamsin Angel, Christmas is always the biggest and best… chic parties and a little showbiz sparkle are a must. This year though, things aren’t going quite as planned…

With bailiffs suddenly at the door and her husband nowhere to be found, it looks like Christmas just got downsized. Moving into her sister’s one-bedroom flat, she wonders whether things will ever be the same again.

After losing her husband on Christmas Eve, Sam Angel has rebuilt her life around her son Jacob and her new business – The White Angel Bakery. She’s also found herself a very handsome, loving boyfriend, but is struggling to let go of the past.

Thrown together with a sprinkle of Christmas magic, Sam and Tamsin might just learn a little more about each other – and themselves. But when disaster strikes at the bakery, will they be able to save the day in time for Christmas?

My Opinion:

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

This is my first Sue Watson book, I’ve heard so many great things about this book and also Love, Lies and Lemon Cake (on my TBR). I was happy to finally have the possibility to read one of her books.
This is a beautiful and touching story about two sisters.

Tamsin Angel has got it all, a big house, a husband, children and she can buy anything she wants… Well, not anymore, her husband just left out of the blue and their company is gone… Tamsin sees herself moving in with her sister Sam.

Sam Angel, is a single mum, living in a small flat, just above her cute little bakery. Her husband died on Christmas Eve a few years ago and she just can’t let go, she has got a boyfriend, but she is struggling to move on!

The two sisters couldn’t be more different, but it was so sweet to see, how they got to know each other in a new way and how they were there for each other all the way through. Both woman had to learn how to move on and get a life. Of course there was some drama and struggling involved, but that only made them stronger and I loved seeing them opening up towards each other, their children and their friends.

Could Sam be able to move on with Richard and what about Tamsin and her new man in life – Gabe?

This is such a sweet story about family, friendship and love. The characters sticking together to have a beautiful Christmas and fighting all the stones in the way… Just beautiful <3
I had difficulties connecting with these two women, which made the reading a bit harder. I still loved this book and especially the message of it.
