#Review Today I am sharing my review for the final book Christmas at Foyles Bookshop by Elaine Roberts #FoylesBookshop #ChristmasatFoylesBookshop @robertselaine11

I am so pleased that I have been able to read and review Christmas at Foyles Bookshop. I have loved this series and getting to know the wonderful ladies Alice, Molly & Victoria.

This era of historical fiction is one of my favourites and this latest instalment was another brilliant read. It was a book full of loss, love and hope and I loved it from beginning to end. It was written with empathy and you could feel the emotions of these wonderful ladies through their highs and lows.

The setting of the bookshop is just magical and the fact that it was written in the lead up to Christmas added a little something extra. A highly enjoyable read that I am sad to have finished as I have loved getting to know these lovely ladies and feel they have allowed us into their friendship group throughout these books.


Book Blurb

With the war raging on, can there be peace, love and joy this Christmas?

London, 1917. After her parents died in a tragic accident, Victoria did everything she could to keep her siblings safe and off the streets. Working at the Foyles Bookshop with her best friends is a dream come true – but now the war has put everything she holds dear in danger.

With her brother fighting on the frontline, Victoria wants to do her part. Little does she know that volunteering to spend time with injured soldiers at Endell Street Military Hospital will reward her in ways she could never have imagined. There are family secrets to uncover, along with love, once lost but never forgotten.

This Christmas, all the Foyles girls want is their loved ones back safe and sound…

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.
