A fabulously happy publication day to Patricia Dixon and Destiny. A huge thanks to Heather Fitt for organising this blog blitz and to Bombshell Books and Patricia Dixon for a copy of this novel in return for a honest and unbiased review.
In this collection of short stories we make a return trip to the Loire, catching up with old friends and finding out what life has had in store for Anna and Daniel, Grace and Max, and Ruby and Rosie.
After visiting all of your favourite characters it’s time to meet a brand new family in A Christmas Tale, an extra story written especially for the holiday season.
Barbara and Ned are spending the festivities away from their children and rather unruly grandchildren, relaxing in their wintry countryside home whilst avoiding the hustle and bustle of Christmas in England.
Despite escaping to France, both know they have a special task to perform, keeping a solemn promise and saying goodbye to loved ones, once and for all.
This is a magical tale, recaptures the innocence of childhood Christmases, embracing the spirit of the season and accepting the precious gift of abiding love.
I’ve read some of The Loire series by Patricia Dixon and they are absolutely delightful novels. However, the fact that I have yet to read them.all didn’t make this book of short stories and less brilliant. Each short story takes about 15 to 20 minutes to read and they are perfect for commuting or those occasions you only have a little bit of time to yourself.
Do you ever get to the end of a book and just want that little bit more? Sometimes I have an urge to find out more about how the characters continue after the story. That’s what Patricia does in Destiny. She gives that little bit of extra story – just enough to satisfy curiosity.
Each short story has a warm fuzzy feeling and are simply a delight to read. The characters are relateable and the sort of people you want to be part of your own life. The ladies of The Loire now firmly hold special places in my heart.
Patricia’s writing style is so effortless to read but deep and detailed enough to completely suck you into her setting and become part of the character”s lives.
Destiny is a genius way to pull together a brilliant series and I highly recommend reading the whole set; Anna, Ruby and Rosie, Tilly and Grace – all heartwarming stories about family, friendships and love.
