BOOK REVIEW THE GREAT CHRISTMAS KNIT OFF BY ALEXANDRA BROWN

The perfect seasonal tale of how laughter, friends and wacky Christmas jumpers can mend a broken heart. For fans of Trisha Ashley and Jenny Colgan.

Heartbroken after being jilted at the altar, Sybil has been saved from despair by her knitting obsession and now her home is filled to bursting with tea cosies, bobble hats, and jumpers. But, after discovering that she may have perpetrated the cock-up of the century at work, Sybil decides to make a hasty exit and, just weeks before Christmas, runs away to the picturesque village of Tindledale.

There, Sybil discovers Hettie’s House of Haberdashery, an emporium dedicated to the world of knitting and needle craft. But Hettie, the outspoken octogenarian owner, is struggling and now the shop is due for closure. And when Hettie decides that Sybil’s wonderfully wacky Christmas jumpers are just the thing to add a bit of excitement to her window display, something miraculous starts to happen…

A huge thank you to Jaime frost at Harper Collins for kindly sending me a copy to review .Now im not one to get excited about Christmas till December so for me to finish  a festive read early November shows how much I love this author and this book .

I have read  the first in the Carrington’s series,I have the whole series so look forward to finishing them . I loved her writing and her ability to create a  world within a book with lovable characters and great storyline.

This is a new series and looks set to be just as lovable and successful if this book is anything to go by .

I could not put this down ,I read the last chapter whilst cooking dinner lol .

On more than one occasion I went aww and kids were asking why ?

This is a gorgeous book ,I actally want to live in Tindledale !! This is a story of how heartbreak can be overcome with friends old and new,a new challenge and a visit to the drs 😉 on that note one part including the dr made me chuckle really loud .

It has funny moments but also captures emotion not only in Sybils own life but those she meets along the way .

I haven’t a clue how to knit or have any knowledge on it but that did not stop  me from cheering the knitting on an the charactars .

Alexandra has such a lovely flow to her writing that you are racing through the pages without realising .

A heartwarming enjoyable festive read 🙂
