Thank you to One More Chapter for a digital copy to read and review. This is the first book I’ve read by Alex Brown.
Bridget smiled to herself, certain she could see one of the stars twinkling extra brightly in that moment as if to acknowledge her wish and convince her that, yes, Mulberry-On-Sea was just the place they all needed to be. Surrounded by those happy memories of holidays and special times where nothing bad ever happened…
Finding yourself without a home in the weeks before Christmas would break most people, but for Bridget Carrington it’s a chance to start again. Mulberry-On-Sea has always been her happy place and she’s hoping it can work its magic this festive season and heal her family after a difficult year.
Now, as the community wraps Bridget and her children in its warm embrace, she starts to feel like herself again. With a new business, kids who are starting to smile, and the promise of a second chance at love, Bridget’s holiday season might just be a happy ever after…
My mini review:
Having joined in with the cover reveal for this new book, I was keen to read this book. As the synopsis mentions, Bridget and her children have had a difficult time and some of them are looking forward to a new beginning as they move to Mulberry-On-Sea just before Christmas.
There is some sadness in the story, but this book is also full of fantastic community spirit, family love, a few embarrassing moments for Bridget, a plethora of baked goods and a sprinkling of Christmas magic. Bridget is an amazing woman who seems to exist on very little sleep and I thoroughly enjoyed this story.
I’m pleased to see that a sequel (A Summer Holiday at Bridget’s Bicycle Bakery) is due to be published in July 2022, so that we can find out what happens next for Bridget and her family.
