TLC Book Tours Book Review: Christmas On The Island

About Christmas on the Island

• Paperback: 352 pages
• Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks; Reprint edition (October 16, 2018)

On the remote Scottish island of Mure, the Christmas season is stark, windy, and icy—yet incredibly festive and beautiful…

It’s a time for getting cozy in front of whisky barrel wood fires, and enjoying a dram and a treacle pudding with the people you love—unless, of course, you’ve accidentally gotten pregnant by your ex-boss, and don’t know how to tell him. In the season for peace and good cheer, will Flora find the nerve to reveal the truth to her nearest and dearest? Will her erstwhile co-parent Joel think she’s the bearer of glad tidings—or is this Christmas going to be as bleak as the Highlands in midwinter?

Meanwhile Saif, a doctor and refugee from war-torn Syria is trying to enjoy his first western Christmas with his sons on this remote island where he’s been granted asylum. His wife, however, is still missing, and her absence hangs over what should be a joyful celebration. Can the family possibly find comfort and joy without her?

Travel to the beautiful northern edge of the world and join the welcoming community of Mure for a Highland Christmas you’ll never forget!

Review: Books by Jenny Colgan always take me to my happy place. When you set them around Christmas, well that's double happy for me, because I'm a sucker for Christmas books.

I totally love Jenny's books. I find with Jenny's series you should read them in order to really appreciate them, but they can be read as standalone novels. This is book three of the Summer Seaside Kitchen series. This book is set on a beautiful Scottish island of Mure.

I love the relationships in this book, especially Flora and Joel, but there are so many relationships and life experiences going on.

I totally recommend this book for fans of quaint small town series.
