BOOK REVIEW A FAIRY TALE FOR CHRISTMAS BY CHRISSIE MANBY 

What could’ve more magical at Christmas than a fairy tale come true? 

It’s the festive season and the members of the Newbay Theatre SOciety known as the NEWTS , are putting on a show . Being cast as Cinderella is a dream realised for newcomer Kirsty ,not least because she hopes starring in a panto directed by her boyfriend Jon will bring them closer .

But it’s not all glitter and good cheer: behind the scenes ,long standing rivalries , wardrobe mishaps and suspicious accidents threaten to derail the production. And then there’s Prince Charming himself . Will working with Jon bring Kirsty her happy ever after …or reveal their love to be a showmance  ? 

Firstly a big festive thank you to hodder for sending me a copy to review . Not only was it a unexpected gift it come with some festive goodies .

I have been lucky to have received copies of recent books of chrissies. Therefore I knew I was in for a treat.

This was my first Christmas read of the year andwbat a cracker it was.

I loved the cover and really enjoyed dipping into the adventures of the NEWTS at every given opportunity .

I adore pantomimes..always have and always will especially being s parent now.

So this had all the ingredients for a brilliant story.

Kirsty was a great character and you will find yourself getting cross on her behalf!!

Jon was a unsavoury villain …I mean character . He had a lot to say to Kirsty and it wasn’t always kind .

Ben and his daughter Thea make a welcome sweet addition to the theatre company both adding sparkle and cheer.

But is it just the panto where sparkle is happening??

Kirsty has some self discovery to do and questions to answer !

A beautiful sparkly warm festive book that will have you feeling ready for the Christmas season. .
