    Recommended!

    I didn't read the other novels in this series but I had no issues with this one. I found it engrossing and entertaining, full of sadness and hope at the same time. I liked the well researched historical setting, the fleshed cast of characters and the gripping plot. I look forward to reading other books by this author. Recommended! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    Third book in series!

    Christmas at Foyles Bookshop by Elaine Roberts is the third tale in The Foyles Girls series, and I recommend that you read the series in order. It will allow you to understand the characters and their relationships. I thought Christmas at Foyles Bookshop was well-written with developed characters. I could not wait to find out what is happening with Alice, Victoria and Molly. They have been through so much and they face obstacles together. These three friends consider themselves the three musketeers. They are there for each other in the good times and the bad. I like how all three ladies love books and enjoy working among them each day. Christmas at Foyles Bookshop focuses on Victoria and her family. Molly and Alice are present (of course) along with Mr. Leadbetter, the floor manager at Foyles. I was surprised by the story which is a good thing. There is so much going on (I do not want to spoil it for you) that you will stay up quickly devouring the story. I thought the author captured the time period with the bombings, what the men are suffering at the front, the women worried about the loved ones off fighting, the wounded veterans needing assistance, the wounded pouring into London’s hospitals that are lacking staff and supplies, and what the wounded soldiers are suffering. Victoria volunteers at Endell Street Military Hospital where she witnesses the wounded soldiers suffering. The descriptions are not gory or off-putting. Christmas at Foyles Bookshop is a satisfying story of love, perseverance, family and friendship.

    okay

    Although this book was slower to get going and there were too many twists and turns to make it flow well early in the story in the end it comes together okay.

    Beguiling & Engrossing!

    A marvellous third instalment in what is a captivating series about the trials and triumphs of domestic life during the Great War. As we meet up again with Victoria, Alice and Molly all three girls are doing their best to not only do their very best at work in Foyles Bookshop but also do as much as they can to assist in the war effort. It's great to be re-acquainted with all the wonderful characters and find out how things have moved on for each of them. With lots happening and new issues arising, this is another fabulous read in a beguiling and engrossing series. There are certainly some surprises along the way adding to the story and the entertainment. I love the authenticity of all the wartime details - not that I was there, you understand - but I've certainly read a lot about this period in history but have never encountered a bookstore-based tale before. The characters are all beautifully drawn and varied; the story is, as always from this author, well-written and easy to focus on .. I was quite surprised when I reached the final page, I was enjoying it so much! A very appealing novel which I raced through, and absolutely worth a full five stars!
