Day 15 – An Island Christmas by Jenny Colgan

Today we are visiting the small island of Mure for the next instalment which we revisit Flora and her friends and family in An Island Christmas.

I have really enjoyed this series, the characters are lovely and we get to know them and gain further insight into their lives in this instalment.

Jenny Colgan has a way of making you feel like you know her characters and in this story she deals with illness, family tension, relationships and grief. Another brilliant book that I have read in just under a day as I have enjoyed it so much and had to know what happened. I really hope we are lucky enough to have another instalment visiting the island of Mure and its lovely residents.

Book Blurb

Christmas on the remote Scottish island of Mure is bleak, stark – and incredibly beautiful.

It’s a time for hunkering down, getting cosy in front of whisky barrel wood fires, and enjoying a dram with the people you love – unless, of course, you’re accidentally pregnant to your ex-boss, and don’t know how to tell him. In what should be the season of peace and goodwill on earth, will Joel think Flora is a bearer of glad tidings?

Meanwhile Saif, the doctor and refugee from war-torn Syria is trying to enjoy his first western Christmas with his sons – but without his missing wife. Can the little family possibly find comfort and joy?

Travel to the beautiful northern edge of the world and join the welcoming community of Mure for an unforgettable Christmas.

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.

  1. Hello, I am new to your blog. I love books, too, and I write them. I don’t see any contact information for you, but I would be interested in having you read and review my book which was released in October, The Carnival of the Animals. How can we get in touch?
