I loved Rebecca’s Rosie’s Travelling Tea Shop so I can’t wait to read what Betanda thinks of Rebecca’s newest book coming out tomorrow!

Blurb: Flora loves Christmas more than anything else in the world, so she’s gutted when her Scrooge-alike boss fires her from Deck the Halls Christmas emporium. But now she finally has a chance to follow her dreams – and what better place to start than the home of Christmas?
Before she can say ‘sleigh bells’, Flora’s on her way to Lapland in a campervan-cum-Christmas-shop. She can’t wait to spend her days drinking hot chocolate and taking reindeer-drawn carriage rides, but something Flora didn’t expect was meeting Connor, a Norse god of a man who makes her heart flutter and snowflakes swirl in her stomach. There’s just one problem: Connor hates Christmas.
Can Flora convince Connor of the joys of Christmas – and will she find a festive romance along the way?
What a superb read! Made me laugh until I was crying–and that is a feat not seen very often!
Flora loves Christmas. In fact she loves it so much she has a Christmas checklist to help her find her perfect Christmas loving partner. She works in Deck the Hall Christmas Emporium, which is her perfect job. Flora gets to have Christmas every day. Flora’s high Christmas expectations from others and her good intentions soon get her into trouble and she finds herself without a job, a boyfriend, and a home. Flora and her best friend decide Flora should live her life like a Christmas Hallmark movie. Soon Flora finds herself in Lapland as a Christmas market stall holder. Where she sells Christmas trinkets out of ‘Noel,’ her mobile Christmas shop and home. This new life does not quite live up to her expectations and she finds some of the other stall holders not as friendly as she had hoped, one of whom becomes Flora’s arch enemy.
Flora soon finds new friends and a new life in Lapland, and finds herself leading the project ‘get Connor to believe in Christmas.’ Connor, the Christmas market manager, is a total non-believer who thinks Christmas is all about consumerism. Flora is convinced she can get him to believe in Christmas.
This Christmas romantic comedy is truly an entertaining read. Rebecca Raisins brings Flora and the other characters to life and I soon found myself imagining the characters, places, and situation. Her writing helps to make the situation comedy so funny. Flora’s Travelling Christmas Shop is a true delight to read. If you want a feel good Christmas book I would definitely recommend Flora’s Travelling Christmas Shop.
I give Flora’s Travelling Christmas Shop five Christmas stars! 🎄🎄⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐🎄🎄
