Mistletoe and Mystery by Daisy James ** Blog Tour Review & Giveaway**

I am loving returning to the Paradise Cookery School series for this seasonal novel- this time, we are back in the UK, in the beautiful Cotswolds. There is also the chance for you to win all 3 Paradise Cookery School Books - details on how to enter are at the foot of this post.

Welcome to the Cotswolds Festive Feast cookery course...

Fresh off the successful opening of the Paradise Cookery School in St Lucia, Millie Harper is headed to the Cotswolds for Christmas!

Co-presenting Claudia Croft’s famous Festive Feast cookery course at Stonelea Manor is a dream come true for Millie…as is reuniting with gorgeous estate manager Zach Barker.

But arriving in a winter wonderland Millie learns the manor is under a mysterious threat. It’ll take a holiday miracle, but Millie is determined to save the school and get Zach under the mistletoe to finally finish what they started in the Caribbean!

Cosy up with this fun, festive visit to the Cotswolds premier cookery school! Perfect for fans of Jenny Oliver and Sarah Morgan.

If you love Mistletoe & Mystery, why not read the first two stories in The Paradise Cookery School series? Sunshine & Secrets and Confetti & Confusions are both available now!

                                                                                  My Thoughts

I loved returning to the characters from the Paradise Cookery School Series. There was a different feel this time as Millie is back in England but what made her so endearing as a character has survived the journey. She is accident prone, wears her heart on her sleeve and passionate about her skill as a chef. She has also kept her passion for Zach alight so it is interesting to see how that pans out once she is ensconced in the middle of a cold, snowy Winter- so different to her time in the Caribbean.

    There are lots of new characters to get to know in this novel. It is full of the delights of the festive season. You find out a lot more about Claudia Croft and her family and realise that Millie's stay in the UK is going to be far from uncomplicated. I loved the structure of the story as each session of the Cookery Course counted down towards Christmas. Fun and good humour is there in spades. I can thoroughly recommend the latest in this series- let's hope for more!

In short: Snowy Cotswolds and fantastic food - what more can you want?
