Book Review: Christmas at Snowflake Lodge by CP Ward *AD Gifted

I was provided with a free ebook of Christmas at Snowflake Lodge by CP Ward ahead of the blog tour.

I didn't know what to expect as I headed into Christmas at Snowflake Lodge as CP Ward is a new to me author, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely read more of their work. Although this is part of a collection of books, it can easily be read as a standalone, as they seem to be linked only by theme in that they're all Christmassy.

Christmas at Snowflake Lodge by CP Ward book cover

Plumber Jessica Lemond is determined not to follow in her parents footsteps by living off her famous grandfather's fortune. However, when the old timer himself elopes to Scotland with suspicions over the recent death of his much younger third wife hanging over his head and a private detective on his tail, it is left to Jessica to follow and clear up the mess. Happy to escape from her nightmarish lodger Doreen, she heads to the remote Snowflake Lodge with her young trainee Kirsten in tow.

However, Snowflake Lodge - with its oddball staff and very dodgy plumbing - is not how it appears in the brochure. Among the beautiful Scottish scenery, and with more hot chocolate and mince pies than she can possibly handle, can Jessica find something she didn't even know she was looking for?

5 Word Review: Family, belonging, Christmas, comedy, belonging.

Christmas at Snowflake Lodge was a massive amount of fun, and perfect for the season.

Reading this kind of felt like watching a Hallmark film, in the best of ways. Even the cover has that feel about it. Christmas at Snowflake Lodge has a bit of everything, and it is very entertaining.

I know it says right there in the blurb that Jessica's lodger Doreen is a nightmare... But honestly that's holding back. She is a vile person and so freaking selfish. I was so glad that Jessica was able to escape from her for a bit, although I wouldn't trust Doreen as far as I could throw her when it comes to the state she'd get the place. RIP Jessica's flat.

Jessica is an excellent character - I loved her outlook on life and how she fell into her profession. I also loved the chance she took on the unassuming Kirsten, who wants to learn and question everything (even if it is in a flat tone).

As someone who has recently stayed in an old remote hotel in Scotland, it made me want to go back so badly. The settings really come to life with Jessica's sense of humour, whether it's a comment on a phone box (in London) or a quip about the toilets (anywhere).

This book is perfect for fans of The Summer Job, we have the same (albeit much more capable) hotel work/life antics.

I had so much fun reading Christmas at Snowflake Lodge, and I will definitely be reading more by this author.
