  • A wondeful, uplifting Christmas story!

    This wonderful, uplifting Christmas story is filled with romance, holiday cheer, sweet friendships, and delicious baked goods. Set in the charming little English village of Linnetford, we follow Cathy who is trying to rebuild her life after her mother's death. Her love of baking takes her to a church coffee morning, where she makes some new friends and is persuaded to start a cooking class. Although nervous at first, Cathy is having a great time with her new friends and teaching the class, plus there's a potential romance on the horizon. But will a rude teenager from her cooking class and the appearance of an ex ruin her happiness? Thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters and storyline kept me engaged until the last page. This cozy, feel-good story will warm your heart and get you in the mood for the holiday season. I definitely recommend it. Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the opportunity to read this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Uplifting

    This is a really cosy read and the story felt very fresh. Cathy is a lovely but lonely character, still grieving after the recent death of her mother and a little lost with what to do with herself now she is no longer her mothers carer. When she pushes herself to go to a charity coffee morning with some home baked donations she meets a gregarious bunch of characters and an opportunity for both friendship and teaching arise. I really enjoyed the varied characters and the gentle storyline, the teenage character Tansy added a great depth to the story and a little good for thought.

  • A Lovely Festive Tale

    This is my third novel by Tilly Tennant, having previously read The Garden on Sparrow Street and The Waffle House on the Pier and I’ve yet to find a book by this author which didn't make me smile. Cathy's Christmas Kitchen was a wonderful tale, and Cathy was a lovely character. Following the death of her mum, she goes to a coffee morning where the accomplished baker is persuaded to start up a weekly baking class in the local church hall. Cathy soon makes new friends in the little village of Linnetford and enjoys teaching her late mum's recipes though the prospect of facing her first Christmas alone looms... There is a love interest for the principal character and a choice of beaux to choose from and I had a fun time selecting my favourite. Tilly Tennant continued to wow me with her fabulous writing, and I read this in double-quick time as I didn't want to put my Kindle down! Cathy's Christmas Kitchen was a heartwarming, inspirational, story about new friendships with lots of love and laughs. A fabulous holiday read, with a few really strong themes, which is festive without being overly done, that I will certainly be recommending to friends and family. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • A little bit of everything!

    Thank you to NetGalley, Tilly Tennant and Bookouture for an ARC of Cathy’s Christmas Kitchen. In exchange for the ARC I am giving my personal review. Cathy's Christmas Kitchen is a story about Cathy and her love of baking she got from her Mother who recently had passed away. The story had a little bit of everything in it from friendship- fun- baking- mystery and romance. I normally start reading and within a few pages I am lost in the story and words but this one did not seem to hold my attention. I read it and said to myself--- it was OK but not one of the best Christmas based books I have read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A festive read and new beginnings

    A festive read and new beginnings As a carer myself, Cathy’s situation hit home, when you dedicate years of your life, looking after a loved one come to the end of theirs, it takes its toll, they become your sole though, friends drift away, a work-life becomes harder and love life is non-existent. Many people can never understand unless they live it and it’s even harder to explain. The way that Tilly dealt with the loneliness and loss is very sympathetic and refreshing to read, it’s rare for people to just move on. This is a slow burner of a story for Cathy, things happen slowly, even the baking. After attending a charity coffee morning, Cathy learns that she had a place in the village and friendships form through her baking classes in the church hall with a quirky bunch of characters. Throw in a dash of teen angst and a new love interest, it’s all I need to curl up with a warm cup of something an wile the afternoon away in Linnetford My thanks to #Netgalley, #Bookouture, and @TillyTennant for allowing to review a copy of #Cathy’sChristmasKitchen
