Book review: 'Snowflakes at the Little Christmas Tree Farm' by Jaimie Admans.


This was my first read from Jaimie Admans and oh my goodness...eeeek, is all I can say about that; while I load up my Kindle and bookshelf with the rest of her books!!!! Spoiler alert... I absolute-tree (I know, i'll work on my tree puns) bloody loved it. 



Blurb

All she wants for Christmas…

Leah Griffiths has woken up after a few too many glasses of Prosecco with a hangover – and discovers she’s accidentally bought a little Christmas tree farm in Scotland!
At first she’s horrified, but perhaps it’s the perfect way to forget all about her cheating ex.
And when she meets grumpy (but ridiculously gorgeous) pumpkin farmer Noel underneath the mistletoe, Leah begins to believe that at Christmas time, anything can happen…


My Review

Where to start? Where to start? Oh gosh, I just adored it. From start to finish it was one big warm, cosy, festive, joyful, romantic mug of hot chocolate with extra whipped cream and a splash of Christmas perfection. 

Firstly, I would now like to ask Santa for a Christmas tree farm. Secondly, a chihuahua would also be rather cute and lovely and lastly, Santa, please can I have a Noel? Thank you kindly. 

I think it's safe to say that whenever you go through a break up you end up with a long list of things you wish to do. I could certainly relate to Leah wanting to make a change and challenge herself. I loved that she had a fiestiness to her but that she also didn't hold in her vulnerability; allowing herself to cry and feel hopeless at times. Sometimes you just need to embrace those feelings, let the tears fall, then stick your wellies on and breathe in the fresh air to make yourself feel better and face the day. It's OK to be vulnerable and it's OK to cry. I enjoyed that about this book, it was very comforting and  heartwarming and made Leah all the more relatable

I felt like I was off in a daydream every time I picked up this book, like I was vicariously living through Leah and rooting (better?) for her to make all her dreams come true. I was silently mumbling words of encouragement willing her to stick (now they just keep coming) out the rough days no matter how hard they were because I could visualize the dream and the magic of Peppermint Branches and truly believed in her so much that she could bring it back to life. 

As for her and Noel: does me wistfully looking off into space with hearts in my eyes count as a review? I thoroughly enjoyed their banter and kind of liked that they gave each other as good as they got sometimes; they ended up bringing out the best in each other. At first Noel was a little abrupt and I didn't like him being mean, but I really loved that Leah held her own and took charge at times. They could both be as stubborn as the other and I liked that about them both. I loved that Noel had such a big heart; how he helped others and how much of a hard worker he was. And seriously? Who doesn't want to be woken up with pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin cake? Their interactions were fun, cheeky and totally had me swooning. 

I'm now looking up pumpkin farms and Christmas tree farms that I can go to this festive season as Roscoe Farm and Peppermint Branches were utterly delightful. 

I highly recommend picking up a copy of this fabulous Christmas read today. It's magical!!
