Christmas at the Foyles Bookshop by Elaine Roberts Aria

This is a heartwarming family saga with engaging characters, interesting details about working in a bookshop during the Great War, and a touch of romance. Elaine Roberts captures the atmosphere of wartime London well, although she sometimes has the characters use jarring modern expressions. Unfortunately, this is really the kind of book which should be read as a paperback - Kindle didn't suit it, I thought.

This is really the story of Victoria who is struggling with getting over her parent's death and not hearing from her boyfriend Ted, a soldier in the war. Luckily, Victoria has her sisters and good friends to help her, but when they assist her to finally clean out her parent's bedroom, she discovers a family mystery which may be more than even she can cope with...

I really enjoyed this story of love and friendship. This is the last one in a trilogy, so I am anxious to read the rest now!

I received this free ebook from Net Galley in return for an honest review.
