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? But when her mum suddenly begins to feel unwell, Aisha has to rethink everything. And when Mel is offered a chance to live her dream, she grabs it with both hands. But there’

I'm glad I found you this Christmas by CP Ward ** Blog Blitz review & Giveaway**

Here is another lovely festive escape for you today- all the way to Scotland for C P Ward's  I'm glad I found you this Christmas. I am delighted to be featuring it on the first day of its mini blog blitz. There is also a great International Giveaway for you to enter- details are at the foot of this post.
Maggie Coates is frustrated. Her longterm boyfriend, Dirk, recently moved to London to take a job she fears puts him out of her league. Despite the assurances of her best friend Renee, Maggie is convinced Dirk is slowly drifting away. All Maggie wants is to get married and settle down, but maybe Dirk has other ideas.
Convinced by Renee to make one last throw of the dice, Maggie books a romantic holiday for two in the quaint Scottish village of Hollydell. But will Dirk show up?

And if he doesn't, what if there is a perfect man waiting for her among the Christmas magic of Hollydell's snow-laden streets? What if Henry, the humble reindeer farmer with the kind smile, turns out to be the man of Maggie's dreams?

I'm glad I found you this Christmas is a glowing sweet romance which will leave you feeling warm inside and buzzing with Christmas spirit.

My Thoughts

This story felt as though the author had conjured up everything which makes Christmas magical and put it all down into this lovely festive read. The setting is amazing and has that Brigadoon feel about it that makes it so mysterious and remote. There are some great characters to meet in Hollydell and you just want to settle down in one of the cabins with a hot chocolate and a good book!

    Friendship, family and finding out what is important in life lies along the way as the story develops. You will find Maggie so sympathetic and will be willing her to see what everyone can. Her best friend, Renee is always looking out for her. You can forgive the slightly daffy idea to book a romantic getaway for a boyfriend who is showing zero interest because when she gets there, it is full of possibilities.

In short: Sparkling snow and actual reindeers- a great festive escape.
