‘Underneath the Christmas Tree’ by Heidi Swain – @Heidi_Swain @TeamBATC #BlogTour

‘Underneath the Christmas Tree’ is Heidi Swain’s brand new book. It is being published on the 28th October 2021 by Simon and Schuster and will be available in paperback, eBook and audiobook. To celebrate a blog tour has been organised and today I am one of the bloggers taking part.

I would like to thank the publisher for kindly sending me a paperback copy to review and for the lovely treats.

Synopsis

***The sparkling new Christmas novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author Heidi Swain!***

Wynter’s Trees is the home of Christmas. For the people of Wynmouth it’s where they get their family Christmas tree, and where Christmas truly comes to life.

But for Liza Wynter, it’s a millstone around her neck. It was her father’s pride and joy but now he’s gone, she can’t have anything to do with it. Until her father’s business partner decides to retire and she must go back to handle the transition to his son Ned.

When Liza arrives, she discovers a much-loved business that’s flourishing under Ned’s stewardship. And she’s happy to stay and help for the Christmas season, but then she has other plans. But will the place where she grew up make her change her mind? And can it weave its Christmas cheer around her heart…?

Underneath the Christmas Tree is the perfect festive read, promising snowfall, warm fires and breath-taking seasonal romance. Perfect for fans of Milly Johnson, Carole Matthews and Cathy Bramley.

My Review

Wow!  That was a truly wonderful read.  It really was.  What a beautiful and entertaining story.  I feel all Christmassy now.

By that I think you will have worked out that I totally loved ‘Underneath the Christmas Tree’.  Once I started reading this book, I was soon turning the pages eagerly.  I found it very cosy and inviting.  The cover is just so beautiful.  It was like an open door enticing me in between the pages. just like a nice bar of chocolate.  Heidi Swain has a most wonderful style of writing, one that draws the reader in and gets them involved in the story.

Reading about Wynter’s Trees really made me want to be there.  I was wishing there was a special button in the book for me to press that would actually transport me to this wonderful sounding place.  If only!  Perhaps the author could arrange this for future books?

There were just so many lovely characters in this story and there wasn’t anyone I didn’t like.  Ned sounded like a total dreamboat and I loved reading about Bandit, his adorable dog.  I cannot even begin to imagine how hard it must have been for Liza to return to Wynter’s Trees and to face her past.  I think it was what she had to do though in order to try and move on.

If you are looking for some Christmas reads, then I can highly recommend ‘Underneath the Christmas Tree’.  It will entertain you and you will be left feeling all dreamy and Christmassy.  This book has all the ingredients necessary and more to really make your day.  With sadness comes happiness and I think the author had the right mix of both.

I hope that there are more books with Liza and Ned, and Bandit of course.  I for one would love to read more about Wynter’s Trees.

Thank you for writing this wonderful story, Heidi.  I am so glad I was given the chance to read it.
