"A delightfully festive relationship tale, it really does have it all, friendship, romance, community spirit, and a pair of gorgeous dogs to help spread the Christmas cheer. "
Gorgeously full of festive fun, love, and friendship, I absolutely adored this Christmassy read. Holly wants to keep to herself when she house-sits for friends over Christmas, she needs to recuperate after the end of her marriage, and plan her next steps. Life though has other plans, and throws a whole host of challenges her way. I love Heidi Swain’s novels, and have a particularly soft spot for those set within the community of Nightingale Square in Norwich. She has a deft touch, ensuring a feeling of authenticity sweeps through the novel, while empathy, kindness, and compassion is found in abundance. For this Christmas read, while the possibility of romance between Holly and Bear sits in the spotlight, the stage is most definitely shared with the joy of friendship. The relationship between Holly and May warmed the cockles of my heart, and made me smile. If you love the inclusion of dogs within a story then you will feel right at home, as Monty and Queenie succeed in stealing the show! The delight of Christmas sparkles throughout, with community spirit leading the way in spreading cheer. Chosen as one of my Liz Picks of the Month, That Festive Feeling is comforting, charming, and a perfect novel to enjoy during the festivities.
