happy weekend booklovers!

Cannot believe we are so close to Christmas! Are you done with your Christmas shopping? I think I only have a couple more things to get.

Christmas in Cockleberry Bay 

 

 

Meet old and new characters in the Bay for Christmas fun and frolics.

With both the Corner Shop and Cockleberry Café in safe hands, Rosa turns her attention to Ned’s Gift, the charity set up in memory of the great-grandfather whose legacy turned her life around.

Over at the Ship Hotel, Lucas has his work cut out with his devious new girlfriend and the mystery poisoning of an anonymous hotel inspector. Will the hotel still get its 3-star Seaside Rosette?

Will Mary find true love at last? Can Titch cope with the demands of the shop and being heavily pregnant. And can Rosa, with a baby of her own, pull off the Cockleberry Bay Charity Christmas Concert in time?

Christmas in Cockleberry Bay is a festive delight for fans of Rosa and her cheeky mini dachshund Hot, delivering a feast of unpredictable events and surprises.

My Thoughts

A festive heartwarming small town Christmas read. I was so delighted to be back in Cockleberry Bay with these wonderful characters. Rosa sure has grown as a person throughout the story and now she is a mom. And of course motherhood comes with a new set of problems, especially because Josh is working in the US at the moment. Rosa is stretched to her limits with baby, job and Hot the dog. Titch is there to lend support but she is about to have a second baby of her own. In addition there are questionable goings-on at Luke’s New hotel/restaurant. An entertaining story set against the backdrop of the run up to Christmas in this small town. Reading this was like coming home and spending time with good friends. just like the previous books in the series the story was full of so much charm and whimsy. I love the relationships between all these characters and it was lots of fun watching these characters navigate the new chapters in their lives. I am hopeful that this is not my last trip to Cockleberry Bay.

❄️ Christmas at the Little Waffle Shack by Helen J Rolfe **Book Review** @rararesources

happy Sunday all!

what did you have for breakfast this morning? Waffles by any chance?🧇

Christmas at the Little Waffle Shack

Heritage Cove is in full swing for the festive season and as the temperature dips, who will be lucky in love this Christmas?

It’s December in Heritage Cove and along with the village Christmas tree, frosty mornings and the promise of the most wonderful time of the year, the new waffle shack is about to open. And its owner isn’t a stranger to the Cove, because after all this time, Daniel is back to make amends with his brother Harvey – as well as a few other locals he might have offended along the way.

Fairly new to the village, local blacksmith Lucy has kept up the pretence of being with her ex for the sake of his gran but she’s fed up with all the lies. Determined to come clean and live the life she wants to live, she’s devastated to find that her attraction to Daniel is tainted by the fact he’s hiding a few things of his own. And his secrets are ones she isn’t sure she’ll ever be able to get past.

Heritage Cove is full of friendship and community; it’s a welcoming place people visit and never want to leave. But will it work its magic for Daniel and Lucy?

A festive read packed with Christmas romance, love and second chances, this is Book 2 in a series of standalone novels set in Heritage Cove, the little village by the sea…

My Thoughts

A scrumptious and sweet festive delight. this is the second book in this charming series set in Heritage Cove, but it can absolutely be read as a standalone. Lucy was new to town in the previous book. She now has taken over the town blacksmith business primarily crafting bespoke items. Daniel is the younger brother of Harvey from the previous book and has just returned to town. However not everyone is thrilled with his return especially brother Harvey. Daniel is determined to prove that people change and is hoping to make a success of his new Waffle Shack venture. when Lucy and Danny meet there are definite sparks and not just from the welding iron. will these two find true love or will there pass come back to bite them?

Warning do not read this on an empty stomach! All these waffle and ice cream and topping combos sounded so tremendously delicious. My poor Eggo toaster waffles may never look the same. both Lucy and Danny were very likable characters and I really loved them together. Lucy had this crazy arrangement with her ex-husband that really kept her tangled up in the past. Dani had made many mistakes in his past and was searching for forgiveness, most of all from himself. The story takes place over the days running up to Christmas and that really added comfort and joy to the story. Now I seriously want to bundle up head to Heritage Cove and have some waffles on the tables outside the Waffle Shack overlooking the town Christmas tree.
