Another book to mark off my 2015 Reading Challenge list – A Book set during Christmas.

This is the perfect book to read at lunchtime as it is made up of lots of short stories to keep you entertained. Each story has its own bit of Christmas sparkle thrown in for good measure. I love reading books set at Christmas time and this one delivers every time.

Lots of short sweet stories, some longer than others, but all with that special something that has you wanting to come back for more. I like the way that even with a very short story the characters always seem fully developed. It’s the mark of a great writer and I would recommend anything written by Katie Fforde. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face and get you in a great mood.

My favourite stories are The Undercover Cook – romance getting all heated up in the kitchen, From Scotland with Love – getting snowed-in with an attractive author sounds like fun and A Christmas Feast – music of the soul to get the heart beating faster.

Also love that they put an excerpt at the back of the book to get you all excited about the next one that’s coming soon.
