Book blurb

This Christmas fall in love with the town of Chesterwood…

Christmas is meant to be a time of giving, so with Chesterwood food bank under risk of closure Fern knows just what to do to save it. She’s going to get the town to create a living advent calendar.

Fern, and her best friends, call for help from the local community to bring this calendar to life. When Kit, the new man in town, offers his assistance Fern’s heart can’t help but skip a beat (or two).

As they grow ever closer, Fern must admit that Kit’s breaking down the barriers she built after the death of her husband. But his past is holding him back and Fern doesn’t know how to reach him. No matter how hard she tries.

In this town, Kit’s not the only one with secrets. Domestic goddess Cara is behaving oddly, burning meals in the oven and clothes whilst ironing, and Davina’s perfect children are causing trouble at school leaving her son, Jasper, desperately unhappy.

Can the Christmas Calendar Girls find a way to bring the community together in time to save the food bank, while still supporting their families and each other? Can Fern find love again with Kit?
This is a story about kindness and letting go of the past. It’s about looking out for your neighbours and about making every day feel like Christmas.

My review

There’s nothing like a bit of festive cheer to make the world seem a happier place and Sam’s latest piece of glittery tinsel certainly ticks all my boxes.  But the book isn’t just that…

There’s tragedy here. Fern, still reeling from the death of her husband’s, moves with her daughter, Lily to pastures new in an attempt to move on with her life. But, instead she soon finds herself embroiled in trying to save the local food bank, coming up with a unique fund raising idea and, in the process stumbles on a new friendship with Kit. The sense of community spirit adds a richness to the plot as does the side stories seamlessly threaded through the story. Another well-written winner ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
