The 6pm Frazzled Mums' Club by Nina Manning #Review

I am delighted to be part of the celebrations for the publication of Nina Manning's The 6pm Frazzled Mums' Club . It was published by Boldwood Books on September 26th.     Whatever the question, the answer is wine! They’ve swapped the dark and lonely baby days for school gate chaos, but Aisha, Sophy and Mel are discovering that there are new parenting pitfalls just waiting for them… Influencer Sophy, is trying to keep on top of home and work life but is finding it all a bit tough! Everyone thinks she’s living her best life, but the pressure to maintain perfection at the school gates when all she wants to do is cry, is taking its toll on Sophy. Aisha doesn’t know what to do with all her spare time now her twins are at school. Maybe it’s time to focus on herself and the dreams she’s put on hold?

Christmas Miracles at the Little Log Cabin ** Blog Tour Review**

Christmas reading continues today with Helen J Rolfe's Christmas Miracles at the Little Log Cabin, which is published today!

Do you believe in Christmas Miracles?

Holly is looking for a change and even though not everyone agrees with her career choices, she’s determined there’s more to this life than the long hours she works as an editor in New York City. What she doesn’t expect is to meet Mitch, a recluse who’s hiding more than she realises. 

Mitch does all he can to avoid human contact, spending his days in the little log cabin out in the woods behind Inglenook Falls where he owns a Christmas tree farm, so when Holly falls into his life, he’s not sure how to react. All he knows is that something needs to change if he ever wants to get his life back on track. 

Along with friends Cleo and Darcy, Holly is determined to bring joy back to Mitch’s life, but will he appreciate their interference? And when a business proposition throws everything up in the air, will it do more harm than good and ruin lives forever? 

Both Holly and Mitch must learn that on the surface people aren’t always what they seem…but if you dig a little deeper, they can take you by surprise.

Curl up this Christmas for plenty of snowflakes, roaring log fires, a marriage proposal, unlikely friendships and second chances as we return to the much-loved characters in the New York Ever After series.

My Thoughts

It was great to meet up with some familiar characters from Christmas at the Little Knitting Box which I reviewed last year and  you can read my review here.  Although Christmas Miracles at the Little Log Cabin can be read as a standalone, it was good to have some background on a few of the characters. This is really a story about coming to terms with the past and taking a leap of faith for a second chance. The setting at Inglenook Falls sounds delightful. What can be more festive than a Christmas Tree Farm and a snowy log cabin?

    Holly is a resourceful and brave character who is taking a step into the unknown and becoming a freelancer. Her friends support her and her sense of drive and purpose contrasts with Mitch's reclusive lifestyle. Through her meeting with Mitch, she begins to question certain aspects of her life. Despite issues in the background about depression, mental health issues and loneliness, this is overall a joyful story and perfect for a December weekend.

In short: heart-warming romance set against a snowy, festive backdrop.
