The lovely people over at @Aria_Fiction kindly let me review A Winter Affair by @Adelica which I discovered over on @NetGalley and am I pleased they did.
This was one of those books I could imagine curled up under my duvet on a cold winters evening reading, but as a book reviewer I read winter books in summer because I blooming well can.
I adored the cover, it reminded me of an old Quality Street tin my Mum used to keep buttons in when I was a child.
The characters were loveable as was Bert the dog, this is the second book I’ve read with a Bert as a pet ( the last was a parrot) I adore Bert pets as my 15 year old rescue dog is a Bertie so I feel close to these pets ( OK I’m having a doggy moment here)
The story was heartwarming and funny which left a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart. I adore Trisha Ashley and Katie Fforde, and Minna’s writing really reminds me of their books.
This book will fly off the shelves once it is published, it really is wonderful.
I rate it 5/5
