As tradition dictates, Hannah is making the family Christmas pudding on Stir-up Sunday. Over two hundred years previously, Lizzy had been doing the same job, in the same place, but she stirred up more than a pudding.
Hannah now feels her own life slipping out of her control, as she is drawn helplessly to a Christmas past and its dark secret.
Stir-up Sunday is the perfect read for this time of year. You always get lots of romance stories set at Christmas but not many other genres so it made a refreshing change to read this short festive ghost story.
The story flicks between then and now. I loved the flicking back and forth so you get a sense of what life was like years before, especially in the same place as where Hannah and her family live in the present.
This isn’t an overly scary story, more one of suspense as events from the past have caused problems for Hannah in the form of spooky going ons. To find out what exactly, you would have to read for yourself.
Stir-up Sunday is a festive and gripping read and perfect for those cold and dark nights whilst your wrapped up safe and warm indoors.
Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
