It’s publication day!!! Today the new brilliant novel by Zara Stoneley is out in eBook and I am really happy to welcome you on my stop on the blog tour for Four Christmases And A Secret. Thank you so much to Rachel for inviting me to join the blog tour and to One More Chapter for providing me with a copy of the novel.
Four Christmases And A Secret is my first Christmas novel of the year and, so far, my favourite book from this author. I loved the plot, the characters, and, of course, the author’s recognizable brilliant and clear writing style.
The heroine is Daisy, a thirty-something girl who was supposed to have it all figured it out, but somehow it went all wrong. Daisy loves animals and when she was at school she dreamt of becoming a veterinary. However, something happened and she failed her exams. Now she works in the marketing department of the local newspaper, she rescues dogs, she shares a flat with an exuberant woman, and, to her mother great displeasure, she is still single. On the other hand, her arci-nemesis Ollie is a successful doctor with a beautiful girlfriend and, Christmas after Christmas, Daisy has to hear all about his achievements.
When it comes to romantic comedies, Zara Stoneley is one of my favourite authors. She knows how to make me laugh and keep me glued to the pages with her beautiful and entertaining stories. She creates characters that are likable, funny, and authentic. In Four Christmases And A Secret, there is Daisy who is hilarious and relatable, there is Ollie who is dreamy, uncle Terence, who is full of good advice, and, of course, we can’t forget Stanley, the adorable dog and my favourite character.
I loved the setting and the atmosphere. Christmas is my favourite time of the year and in this novel you can feel it page after page. Also, Daisy spends her Christmases in uncle Terence’s beautiful bookshop and what is better than that?
I know it’s still September, but, if like me, you are already thinking about Christmas, this engaging and refreshing novel will get you in the right mood!
