    Quack Quack no Oops

    The Dancing Duck is that perfect country pub that we all wish we could find. Filled with warmth and extraordinarily good food, courtesy of Leon and Michel, it is the hub of the community but it is sadly losing money and the Harrison daughters have no real option but to sell and avoid bankruptcy - especially as Olivia is married to the local magistrate. But this tale isn't about Olivia it is about the other sister, Kirsty, and her terror of facing up to her parent's death at Christmas 2 years ago. This leads her to make some unfortunate comments caught by the sound man of her morning cookery segment and it soon goes viral on You Tube and that's it, she runs home to lick her wounds. For, despite it all, The Dancing Duck is home. Okay, so the plot is rather predictable. Will Kirsty get back together with her old flame Josh? Will they really sell The Dancing Duck? I'm sure without reading the book you can already guess the answers to these questions. What saves this book is the characters within it. Kirsty is fun and although fond of melancholic "episodes" when she sees everything as doom and gloom and enjoys a good old pity party she reads so well you feel as though you know her. Josh is vaguely enigmatic but his personality shines through in the little things he does that are passed over slickly without rubbing our noses in what a jolly good bloke he is. Even Miles, the undoubted villain of the piece, is cast in a good light even if he turns out to be a double-crossing swine. Could have done with a little more stringent editing though. For one whole chapter Michel (Leon's sous chef at the brasserie within the Dancing Duck) is referred to as Marcel, which infuriated me no end. A wonderfully charming tale that I thoroughly enjoyed. Yes, I knew what was going to happen and the mechanism by which it would happen but it was told so well I got completely sucked in and desperately wanted to take part in the Craft and Baking Competitions, never mind sampling that wonderful Christmas feast.

    Very cute Christmas read!

    I love Christmas books but they tend to be hit or miss for me. Out of the six Christmas books I’ve read so far this year, Christmas at the Dancing Duck was only the second one I actually enjoyed. And I really did enjoy it! I liked the premise of the book and appreciated how different it was. After an embarrassing mishap on her live cooking show in London, Kirstie returns home to the Dancing Duck pub, where she grew up and where her remaining family still lives. She doesn’t get home often and hasn’t been around while the pub struggled to the point of needing to be sold. I loved the town and its people, all the festivities leading up to Christmas, and how close-knit everyone was. I’d love to live in a place like that and have Kirstie’s family and friends as my own! It was easy to get invested in Kirstie’s story and the characters; I wanted things to turn out for the best and was rooting everyone on throughout. Christmas at the Dancing Duck was sweet, funny, and heartwarming with great characters. It’s the perfect book to curl up with on a chilly weekend and forget about the rest of the world. I’m looking forward to reading more from Ms James.

    A great Christmas read

    4.5 star review of Christmas at the Dancing Duck by Daisy James Cranbury sounds like a beautiful place to live and I found this story to be full of hope, love and family; of strength and determination and all in all a heart warming Christmas read. Can the magic of the Christmas season bring together two souls who were driven apart due to circumstance? The Dancing Duck has been in Kirstie Harrison’s family for over 30 years and for her and her sister they have had to make the painful choice to sell the hotel that their parents loved so much due to lack of finances All the characters were well written and although the story line was a tad predictable I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the people of Cranbury. I look forward to reading more from Daisy James,
