Christmas Carols And A Cornish Cream Tea By Cressida McLaughlin

Christmas Carols And A Cornish Cream Tea‘Christmas Carols And A Cornish Cream Tea’ is the fifth book by Cressida McLaughlin in ‘The Cornish Cream Tea’ series.

All Meredith Verren has ever wanted is to escape the holiday season without having to wear a Christmas jumper. Her new job at the cosy gift shop in a picturesque Cornish tourist spot is making it impossible for her to maintain her scrooge-like manner. With their seasonal hampers on everyone’s wish list, Meredith must paste on a smile and fake some holiday cheer. Then she meets handsome new arrival, Finn, who wishes it could be Christmas every day and wants her to feel the same way too. Can she embrace the holly and the ivy before the decorations are packed away for another year?

The latest book by Cressida is a charming festive story that will warm the cockles of your heart on these cold winter evenings.

Although Meredith isn’t a fan of Christmas, she’s great at popping together gift hampers and that’s what her charming boss Adrian is making her do to help spread some Christmas joy. Help comes in the shape of mysterious stranger Finn who happens to pop up all the time to chat to Meredith as well as charm her pets and moody neighbour Bernie.

This is only the second book that I’ve read by Cressida and it was a genuinely lovely story. Meredith is a great character with a big personality and kind nature, wanting to help others. She’s equally drawn and frustrated by Finn, with his charismatic manner but can’t help but get frustrated when he comes over all Christmassy! Interactions between the pair make for sweet and fun reading as they tentatively flirt and get to know each other, all whilst dealing with their own ghosts.

The story is warm hearted and festive and I immediately loved the Christmas cheer as well as the adorable Beagle puppy called Crumble.

Beautifully written and filled with charm and heart. ‘Christmas Carols And A Cornish Cream Tea’ is the perfect book to curl up with this Christmas and will most certainly get you into the Christmas spirit.

You can buy ‘Christmas Carols And A Cornish Cream Tea’ from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.
