"An entertaining and satisfying full-ensemble tale set in a village that revels in the most wonderful time of the year, Christmas."
Fresh and modern yet full of warmth and tradition, this is a lovely novel full of Christmas spirit. Sam hates the time of festive cheer with a vengeance, and due to Blythe leaving out some important facts when she sells him a local home, moves into one of the most Christmas loving villages in the country. Featuring friendship, community, family, and two blossoming relationships, there is plenty to keep you occupied in this Christmas read. The focus though, remains on Blythe and Sam (and Turpin the cat) as they meet in May and the months roll round towards December. There is a lovely lead up to Christmas as the village concentrates on the arrangements for their joint decorations, it ensures that you are able to get to know the characters before the celebrations start. The different strands loop and twist around each other, I particularly enjoyed the inclusion of the villagers and emphasis on several smaller stories within the main plot. Contemporary and wonderfully engaging, The Perfect Christmas Village balances life and death, grief and joy, with full-on Christmas exuberance.
