  • wonderful catch up!

    I was lucky enough to win an ARC copy of this book. This is a little catch up, if you will, with the Harris-Reid family, and you really SHOULD at least read Fish Stick Fridays before this one. Hanging the Stars ain't too shabby either, but this is more about Zig and her dads. Zig is eleven, and blindsided by a school project. Her dads go about rallying around and making the project a little less painful for her. I'm not usually one for Holiday/Christmas stories, but I loved Zig, and Deacon and Lang, so really had to catch up with them! And I LOVED this! It packs quite an emotional punch for some 90 odd pages! Zig has to do a project on Christmas traditions on her family. But she doesn't have any, not really. So Deacon and Lang go all out about making NEW traditions: using some from Lang's grandmother, some from their friends and making some up as they go along. They do cracker house decorations, the chopping of trees down. Trees in each and every room. Making salt dough ornaments. Lots of different things, from a whole host of backgrounds, and choosing which ones to make their own. I loved that we caught up with Deke and Lang, but also with West, Angel and Rome. Loved the plans the adults have for the kids should something happen to either set of parents. But Zig, again, made this book! Set 3 years after Fish Stick Fridays, and she still has her eclectic taste in tutus and boots, and it's so great she hasn't lost her swear jar! Indeed, opening line in the book is Zig swearing her little head off and realising that Deke can hear her! Loved it! And even though Zig was sick, and not actually able to do her presentation at school, loved that she WAS able to still show her dads what did. I cried at that point! Because even though it was about making NEW traditions, Zig still draws on her painful past and how important it is to remember where you came from, and that past is a part of you, always. And new families need new traditions. 5 full and sparkly stars! ps, we ALWAYS have take out Christmas Eve!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Holiday short that's good any time of the year

    I really enjoyed this series and decided to revisit the characters for a bit of Christmas in the summer. Tutus and Tinsel builds off characters and families previously introduced in the Half Moon Bay series, so it’s definitely best enjoyed after reading those books. This sweet holiday story reminds readers that traditions aren’t necessarily those held the longest time, but rather those you hold closest to your heart. I’ve always liked Zig and her big personality so I was excited to get more time with her as well as her fathers. The author does a wonderful job capturing her strength and vulnerability as well as lighting on those little moments between Deacon and Lang that reaffirm their love and strong connection. If you’re looking to add a bit of holiday magic to your day, I’d definitely recommend picking up this short as it’s filled with heartwarming family moments.

    Thanks for your feedback!
