For Tamsin Angel, Christmas is always the biggest and best… chic parties and a little showbiz sparkle are a must. This year though, things aren’t going quite as planned…
With bailiffs suddenly at the door and her husband nowhere to be found, it looks like Christmas just got downsized. Moving into her sister’s one-bedroom flat, she wonders whether things will ever be the same again.
After losing her husband on Christmas Eve, Sam Angel has rebuilt her life around her son Jacob and her new business – The White Angel Bakery. She’s also found herself a very handsome, loving boyfriend, but is struggling to let go of the past.
Thrown together with a sprinkle of Christmas magic, Sam and Tamsin might just learn a little more about each other – and themselves. But when disaster strikes at the bakery, will they be able to save the day in time for Christmas?
Snow Angels, Secrets and Christmas Cake is a wonderful read. It’s one of those stories that has you grinning with laughter in places and will see you with a big sloppy grin the rest of the time. It is the perfect novel to snuggle up on the sofa with on a cold winters day or night.
Tamsin and Sam are sisters who have led very different lifestyles in their adult hood and are quite different in their personalities also. Tamsin is used to being able to pick up the phone and have an expert on hand for any issue. Obviously when the bailiffs turn up at her door she is left to pick up the pieces though luckily she has a bit of help from her sister. Even though I could understand Sam’s frustrations with her sister as it takes her a while for reality to settle in, I do think Tamsin actually handled the whole problem better than most people would in her situation.
The relationships between both sisters and their love interests was so enjoyable to read. For one sister she’s scared to take a leap and is scared to take anything other than baby steps with him which I found so endearing as well as frustrating. On the other hand you have the other sister who seems to be making the most of just coming out of a long term relationship and she certainly seems to be having fun with her new chap.
The story is very much about overcoming hurdles and taking a chance. I think a lesson can be learned from the story that life is really to short and if you don’t take risks every now and again, we risk the chance of missing out on love and being happy.
This is the fourth book I have read by this author now and I have to say I am a huge fan and if you haven’y had the pleasure of reading her books all I can say is that you are in for a treat.
