Happy happy Friday you lovely people! October is flying by, and we’re now half way through the month. Not only are we getting closer and closer to my favourite blogging time of the year, but we’re also getting two Christmas themed posts in one week! In case you hadn’t guessed, today we’re looking at Christmas with the Teashop Girls by Elaine Everest, sent to me for free by her publishers but without obligation to review or promote.

Just going to take this opportunity to remind any of you Christmas lovers out there that my Christmas Card Swap 2020 is live and open to sign ups!
For the last few years, to be honest dating back to October 2017, I have been so excited every time a new book by Elaine Everest drops through the letterbox. Christmas with the Teashop Girls sees the bestselling author of The Woolworth Girls [AFF] return with another feel-good festive saga! Some of you might remember back when I reviewed Christmas at Woolworths and A Gift From Woolworths, but if you don’t then let’s do a bit of background!
Christmas With The Teashop Girls
As I was saying I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading Elaine Everest’s writing in the past, so when I received this through the letterbox I was really excited to curl up with a festive read – especially given it was only September!

About Christmas With The Teashop Girls
The Teashop Girls return in a moving story of love, bravery and hope set in 1940 – a guaranteed winter warmer full of festive spirit. Bestseller Elaine Everest is the author of the much-loved Woolworth Girls saga series.
It’s late 1940 and the war feels closer to home than ever for Rose Neville and her staff at the Lyon’s Teashop in Margate. The worry of rationing hangs overhead as the Nippies do their best to provide a happy smile and a hot cup of tea for their customers. When a bombing raid targets the Kent coastline, Lyon’s is badly hit, throwing the future of the cafe into jeopardy.
The light in Rose’s life is her dashing fiance Captain Ben Hargreaves and she’s busy planning their Christmas Eve wedding. But she must also plan to take two new stepdaughters into her life and get on the right side of her wealthy mother-in-law, Lady Diana. Is Rose ready to become a mother?
When Rose’s half-sister Eileen makes contact, it seems that Rose’s dreams of having a sibling are coming true at long last. But her friends begin to suspect that she’s hiding something… As the wedding draws near, the bombings intensify, putting everything and everyone Rose loves in danger. Only one thing is for sure: it will be a Christmas she never forgets…
