Christmas at the Log Fire Cabin
When Poppy’s boyfriend Harrison proposes the week before Christmas and gives her twelve days to decide, she doesn’t know what to do. With the festive season in full swing, it’s make or break time for the couple and the clock is ticking…
Meanwhile, Poppy’s best friend Erin is desperate for the pair of them to fulfil their dream of setting up a dinner party catering company – and when an opportunity arises at a luxury log fire cabin, the girls take their chance to impress. But they hadn’t bargained on the owner of the cabin being quite so attractive – or having quite such a sexy voice.
As the twelve days tick on, will Poppy realise that Harrison is the one for her? Or will it be love in the lodge when the new year comes?
Lose yourself this Christmas in the new novel from the brilliant Catherine Ferguson, perfect for cosying up with by the fire.
Christmas at the Log Fire Cabin was a great, light-hearted festive read.
The book tells Poppy's story - a waitress in a busy hotel restaurant but with a passion for cooking.
Poppy has, what seems to be, a loving, well providing boyfriend in Harrison and a fab best friend in Erin and it is Erin who pushes Poppy and convinces her to chase her dreams of becoming a home caterer for private dinner parties.
All seems good for Poppy but she's worried about her Mother's hording issues and missing one key man in her life - her biological Father, Al.
When mysterious man, Jed, leaves a message on Poppy's answer phone in error, she forms and unusal telephone friendship with him, so when Harrison jets off to Spain to spend Christmas with his Mother curisoity gets the better of Poppy and she seeks out Jed to put a face to the name and voice, totally not expecting to land herself a catering job for Jed and his family at the Log Fire Cabin giving Poppy the big break she needs.
The story is a nice, quaint one of following your dreams and making new friends - theres also festive food and menu's, decorations, twinkly lights and snow.
The plot, the characters and the setting for Christmas at the Log Fire Cabin all have the make up of a really great story - and don't get me wrong, I did enjoy reading the book but I was left wondering how Poppy & Al were doing, and where her relationship with Jed is getting along.
Personally for me, an epilogue of some description would have finished the story off and tied the loose ends together nicely.
