Many thanks to Tracy Fenton and Compulsive Readers for my spot on this Blog Tour.
A sweet book which had me smiling at the idea of Christmas presents being stolen from the homes in Newbury.
A story which was told from the POV of nine people, I got the perspective of what went on in their homes. Secrets were revealed and lies were laid bare and a few disappointments and sadness soon gave way to happiness and hope. Just what a Christmas book needed.
My first book by author Hayley Webster, I was pleasantly surprised by how soon I got embroiled into the lives of these people. Each of them felt real. The author had etched characters with genuine emotions and caring, and that made it easy to read.
I liked that it wasn’t a typical Christmas book as there was a mystery about who stole the presents. The cops and residents got investigating. That added to the suspense along with humor. The descriptions of people and the locales had me imagining some of them as I read along.
The book was exactly like a Christmas gift, the outer cover was beautiful and the inner pages filled with the reality of honest emotions, some good, some bad but all of them leading to the Christmas cheer. A beautiful read filled with warmth.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
All my reviews can be read here
Nine lives. One street. And a secret behind every door.
Christmas is ruined on Newbury Street, Norwich.
Presents have been going missing from resident’s homes. There are rumours going around that it’s one of their own who’s been stealing from the neighbours. Festive spirit is being replaced with suspicion and the inhabitants of Newbury Street don’t know who to trust. The police presence isn’t helping matters, especially when they all have something to hide.
But Christmas is a time for miracles… and if they open themselves up to hope and look out for each other, they might discover the biggest miracle of all.
