Susie’s Monthly Friday Book Club.

Now when I wrote about my Book Club a lot of you said great, except you don’t like scary books, like Stephen King; the book I am reading at the moment.  So for February’s Book Club I thought I would tell you about a book I read before Christmas.

Always around Christmas I love to read a book about Christmas or set around Christmas.  I think it stems from reading to The Boys when they were little and we always read them Christmas books during December.  Anyway I read this before Christmas and loved it.

Now I know we are in February but there is nothing to say we can’t read books about Christmas all year. 

It is about two women who have a very different approach to the festive season.  First Beth and although it is only September she has to plan and put on the annual Christmas Eve Village party, which was previously arranged by her husbands former wife as well as hosting Christmas for her step-children.  

Then there is Carol,  a glamorous magazine editor who is busy trying to find articles to help her ailing magazine and is completely oblivious to the coming festive season.  She develops a huge sense of guilt as she has done nothing towards Christmas for her young son, so decides to book a country cottage to try and have the perfect Christmas. 

The two women meet and between them manage to bring about Christmas for everyone, whilst still keeping their sanity.

It is a great read and no monsters in sight and does make you feel all warm about Christmas.  You can get it from Amazon as hardbook/paperback/Kindle/Audio book.

I hope if you do read it you will love it and I will sort out another book for March.

Happy Reading everyone.

Hugs, Susie x

    Nothing says you can’t talk about your Stephen King books…I just can’t read them because they are just a sliver away from what could really be and they scare me. I’m sure your review would not scare me!! I also love the read Christmas stories around Christmas…and all year long!!
