Prosecco Christmas Review

Hello lovelies!

Happy 2018! I know the new year has been underway for quite a while now but I haven't had the chance to say it on here yet! I hope you're all having a fab new year so far! I've been quite busy since Christmas and neglecting my poor blog somewhat! However that's all gonna change in the next few weeks! I have some great content planned for 2018 and I'm so excited to share it!

The first of which being a review of "Prosecco Christmas" by Sylvia Ashby!

Family is where life begins.
And what better time to spend with your family than Christmas week? 

Ashley and Giacomo go to Upper Swainswick, a postcard village ten minutes’ drive from Bath, to stay with Ashley’s mum and stepdad. It’s their last visit before the arrival of their first child.

But babies have a habit of being unpredictable.

So when Ashley goes into labour on Christmas Eve, three weeks ahead of schedule, it takes everyone by surprise.

 She’s not ready! Her perfect Birth Plan is packed away in her hospital bag two hundred miles away, she has no going home outfit, and she has a live event planned for New Year’s Eve for her YouTube channel, The Sinking Chef. People have been signing up for it for weeks. She can’t possibly disappoint them on the last day of the year. What is she to do?

The tinsel gets even more tangled when Giacomo’s parents decide to fly from Italy to meet their first grandchild. Hotels are fully booked, so everyone has to stay under the same roof. 

Would eleven people in the house, not counting the baby, turn out to be simply too much for Ashley?

Buy the book:

This is the third book in the Pot Love series by Sylivia Ashby and while I've not read the first two books in the series, I have to say that reading this was an absolute joy. I started reading it over the Christmas period and finished it a few days ago and it left a lovely warm and fuzzy feeling in its wake. 

Like I said, I hadn't read the first two books so I was a little worried about not being able to follow along with some aspects of the plot but I needn't have! Sylvia writes in such a way that makes everything easy to follow and enjoyable to read.

I absolutely loved this book. It's the perfect Christmassy read. It's got funny moments, heartwarming moments,  and wonderful cast of absolutely barmy and loveable characters that will keep you wanting more. I'm going to read the first two books the next chance I get and I hope that there's a fourth instalment of this series because I definitely need more!

5/5 stars

Sylvia Ashby is fond of the written word: books, blog posts, recipes, even an explanation to the HM Revenue & Customs as to why she thinks skirts should be exempt from VAT - she's written it all! She likes travelling and has lived all over Europe - London, Brussels, Amsterdam and Sofia, Bulgaria. Currently, she lives in Leuven, Belgium with her husband, daughter, son and a sparrow called Jack, who comes occasionally to peck the seeds she leaves for him on top of the garden shed.

  1. I am definitely going to have to pick up a copy of this book, it's never too late for a bit of Christmas spririt so this book sounds just the ticket! I like the fact that the book was so well written that you didn't necessarily need to have read the first ones in the series, that's a sign of an excellent writer! Thank you for sharing your thoughts, I'm glad that this was so heartwarming!
