I am the next stop on this tour - here are my thoughts on this festive feel good story .......


THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT

Published:  27 Nov 2013
Pages:  163  (ebook)



Christmas is coming, but not everyone is looking forward to it. 
Rebecca has just been dumped and the prospect of spending the holiday period with her parents is less than appealing. 
Eighty-two year old Stanley lost his beloved wife, Edie, to cancer. How will he cope with his first Christmas without her? 
Jacob’s university degree hasn’t helped him get a job, and it looks like he’ll still be signing on come New Year. 
Workaholic Meredith would rather spend December 25th at home alone with a ready meal and a DVD box set. Can anything make her embrace the spirit of the season? 
The enigmatic Natalie Hope takes over the reins at the Sugar and Spice bakery and cafĂ© in an attempt to spread some festive cheer and restore Christmas spirit, but will she succeed? 




******************************************

The Christmas Spirit is my first festive read this year and this lovely feel good story has definitely put me in a Christmassy mood and ready for the coming Yuletide season.

When Natalie arrives in a little village near Loch Lomond in Scotland she knew who needed her help the most and, as she baked her delicious Christmas cakes in the Sugar and Spice Bakery her plans for them started to take shape.

None of them were looking forward to Christmas this year..............

I thought the author really developed each character well for such a short story and I enjoyed it very much.  Warm-hearted, cheerful and up-beat, this is the perfect holiday read to put you in the Christmas Spirit.
