Sheila Roberts’ novels, ‘Nine Lives of Christmas’, ‘On Strike for Christmas’ and ‘The Snow Globe’ were published by Piatkus on 2nd December in paperback. This month a number of bloggers have been reviewing her books as part of a blog tour. I have chosen to review ‘The Snow Globe’.
Kiley Gray is having a hard time of things. She goes on a weekend break with her friends Suzanne and Allison. Whilst away, Kiley comes across an antique shop and decides to take a look inside. She can’t afford much but surely there’s no harm in looking. As she wanders around Kiley comes across a beautiful snow globe and finds herself instantly drawn to it. It seems that the snow globe has been passed around for many years from generation to generation creating magic wherever it goes. Kiley decides to buy it but doesn’t realise just how much her life is about to change.
All Kiley wants for Christmas is somebody to love. She shakes the snow globe and what she sees leads her on a big adventure. When she shares what has happened with her two friends they don’t believe her. Both women are about to discover for themselves that at Christmas time sometimes the impossible can be possible and that miracles do happen.
I really enjoyed ‘The Snow Globe’. It’s a lovely little magical story which left me feeling nice and relaxed. I loved reading about the toy shop. If there was one like that near me I would probably spend ages in it. The brownies and cookies that Allison baked sounded wonderful.
Suzanne definitely needed to be shown where she was going wrong. She was so intent on making money and having a perfect house that she was missing out on the simple things in life and not spending enough time with her family.
If you still aren’t feeling Christmassy read this book.
I give this book 4 out of 5.
