The Country Village Christmas Show by Cathy Lake *Ad - Gifted

I was sent a free copy of The Country Village Christmas Show by Cathy Lake ahead of the blog tour. And even though it's only October, I very much enjoyed it. Now I'm desperate to get my decorations up.

Recently divorced, the family home sold and her son all grown-up, Clare is at a crossroads. She's dedicated her whole adult life to her family, and now it's time she did something for herself.

In the lead up to Christmas, Clare decides that a bit of time in the countryside might be just what she needs, so she moves back to Little Bramble, the village she grew up in. But living with her mum for the first time in years - and not to mention Goliath the Great Dane - can be challenging.

When Clare finds herself running the village Christmas show, it feels like she has purpose in her life again. Bringing together people from all sides of the community, and all walks of life, will Clare manage to pull off a festive feat like no other? And will she find the new start in life - and possibly love - that she's been looking for?

The Country Village Christmas Show is the perfect romantic read to get cosy with this winter.

5 Word Review: Family, community, love, Christmas, friendship.


The Country Village Christmas Show by Cathy Lake has all of the drama and antics you'd expect from an actual village show, and as someone who has lived in a village all her life it really hit the mark. It took a while to get in to, but after a few chapters the story flowed really well and was easy to read.

I really enjoyed the themes of community and friendship, it was very heart-warming and uplifting. I wouldn't say it's a romance, even if there are some romantic elements. It's more of a small village caper as a woman whose life has been turned upside down find herself again.

I don't think I warmed as much to Clare as I could have but that's because she was outshone by Goliath. This giant dog really stole the scene and I would like to be dragged through a hedge by him.

Although it took me a while to get in to, I ultimately really enjoyed The Country Village Christmas Show by Cathy Lake, and it got me very much into a festive mood.
