Festive-Blog-Athon Day Sixteen: Xmas Book Review: The Great Christmas Knit Off by Alexandra Brown ++ Giveaway

Today's on Festive-Blog-Athon is a Xmas Book Review which fits in perfect with all these great christmas books out this year. 

Title: The Great Christmas Knit off

Author: Alexandra Brown
Publisher: HarperCollins
Publication Date: 6th Nov 2014

This book is great! I am such a big fan of Alexandra Brown's books, I was a little gutted when she ended the Carrington's series but got really excited about a new Village Series.

We meet heartbroken Sybil after she got jilted at the altar but she is saved from despair by her love for knitting. Her home is now bursting with tea cosies, bobble hats and jumpers but after releasing she cocked up at work, she decides to make a quick exit just weeks before Christmas and runs away to the a cute picturesque village of Tindledale.
Sybil discovers Hettie's House of Haberdashery the best for a knit lover to find and ends up helping Hettie out after she finds Hettie is struggling and the shop is due to close...

The Great Christmas Knit Off is just an amazing book! I thought with me not a lover of knitting I wouldn't like the book very much but I am soo wrong! I have never knitted in my life but reading this book with Sybil and the little cute village called Tindledale had me thinking about starting Knitting which I think would be cool!

If your big fan's of Alexandra Brown then your going to love this new book. The little village of Tindledale sounds so cute and all the villagers sound so nice too apart from the nasty Adam from the bookshop to begin with is quite nasty with Sybs! I loved reading about Hettie what a dear she is. Laurence is just so amazing! please can he be my best friend? (Hehe)

One thing I always love reading about Cute villages is how people always come together in bad situations and they all pull through together as one and not leave anyone out. I'm excited to read from Sybil and Tindledale in the future! Hurry writing Alex! (Hehe)
I'm rating The Great Christmas Knit Off  - 5 Twinkling Christmas Lights!
