      4.5 starsThere are times when I think books choose me to read them rather than the other way around Christmas on the Coast, by Rebecca Boxall, is exactly one such book I was looking for a simple holiday read, nothing too heavy, when the cover of this gem caught my eye I quickly learned, however, that while the story takes place in December, it is far from a cute little holiday tale The story is told from two perspective one set in present day Jersey, Chanel Islands and told by Libby, a Vica 4.5 [...]

      This was an okay holiday read Surprisingly the chapters from the time of the German occupation of Jersey were less interesting than the ones set in the current day The nitty gritty of family life was worth reading although I wanted to take Libby and shake her hard when she let everyone in the world walk all over her Are there really people like that out there You would think survival of the fittest would have weaned them out by now.There was one really exciting moment when Libby told them al Thi [...]

      A pretty good Christmas book I probably would have enjoyed it better had I not read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society But, my one sticking problem in the story was the best friend who suddenly dumps her lifelong friend because of something that happened years before she was born Other than those speed bumps I liked the Christmas celebrations and sweet traditions.

      Two Christmas stories are told in alternate chapters in this novel Both are set in Jersey, one in 2016 and the other in 1942 I have a real fascination of the Channel Islands and their German occupation in WW2 Therefore, I thought this book had real promise It turned out to be an unfulfilled promise.The present day story stars Libby, who s disgruntled with her job, her family and then her best friend when she suddenly turns on her Pretty much all this conflict made me want to scream Neither Two C [...]

      This was a wonderful Christmas book with a twist Not only does it take place in current day leading up to the big day, but also in 1941, during the German occupation of Jersey, in the Channel Islands.In current day, we meet Libby, a busy police worker, vicar s wife and mother of 3 older children all who are contributing to her worries Her best friend, Stella, has fallen out with her, based on an incident that took place in 1941.In 1941, we meet Queenie who is keeping a journal of all that is Thi [...]

      She ran the taps, pouring in her favourite bath salts, then undressed and plunged herself into the tub Arrrgh she yelled, jumping straight back out again The bathwater was freezing cold.FFS No one EVER gets into a bath without putting their hand in first to check the temperature Unless they are total morons And as for plunging I think that s a physical impossibility You step into a bath She would have got one foot wet It s this sort of stupid writing that makes me dnf a book.
