Christmas at the Little Village Bakery by Tilly Tennant (Book Beginnings & Friday 56)

What would be better than finishing up the #20BooksOfSummer list with a .... Christmas book???

I know, I know. I had several already this summer but tis the season for publishers to be getting a jump start on releasing books for the actual season and I was lucky enough to receive this one from the awesome folks at Bookouture on NetGalley. I adored the first book in the series and I adore Christmas-y books so I was extra-special giddy when I found out that this was coming out.

I haven't gotten more than a couple of pages into it yet but from the 56% quote matched with the description below I'm already worried about what might be going on. The cover says it's "a feel good festive romance," though, so I'm holding out hope for a happy ending!

Friday 56 (share from the 56th page or 56% mark) is hosted at Freda's Voice (today 56% on the Kindle app) 
& Book Beginnings (share the first few sentences) is at Rose City Reader
It’s time to get toasty by the fire with a glass of mulled wine and a slice of chocolate yule log sprinkled with a little romance. Welcome to Christmas at the Little Village Bakery.
Snow is falling in Honeybourne and Spencer is bringing home his American fiancée Tori for a traditional English Christmas with all the trimmings. But when his hippie mum and dad meet her high-maintenance parents, sparks of the wrong sort start to fly. Then Spencer bumps into his first loveJasmine and unexpected feelings come flooding back.
Millie is run off her feet with Christmas orders at the Little Village Bakery and new baby Oscar. Thank goodness her cousin Darcie is here to help her. Although she does seem to be rather flirty with Millie’s boyfriend Dylan.
Will Darcie ever find true love of her own? And is marrying Tori a terrible mistake for Spencer if his heart is with someone else?


  1. Doesn't there have to be tears along with the romance?

  2. OOOPS!! I still have to wrap up my 20 Books of Summer! Not wrapping up Christmas presents yet..! But yes, I agree, it was a fun way to end your challenge off. Hope your weekend will be great.

    Happy Labor day weekend!

  5. This sounds like a delightful Christmas novel. I like the opening description of the snowy landscape.

  6. It's too soon for me to be talking about Christmas! :)

    Check out my Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings).

  7. I liked both the beginning and the 56 - I have the first book on my kindle and need to find the time to read it because I'm sure I'll love it and I love early holiday books:) Here's my Friday meme

  8. What a fun cover, it reminds me of the bakery in my town. I am already eager for a good Halloween story and now this one is wanting me to look into Christmas stories. Happy Friday!
