My Review - 5 Tea Time Perfection
I loved everything about this story. A mystery on Christmas Eve with beautiful characters, it was a race of time, my heart was pounding and I couldn't stop reading, I read it in one sitting, went to sleep at 2am with a smile.
I will recommend this one as Christmas Eve reading.
In the mind of a 7 year old, at first I thought would this really happen but I think when a child is focused and truly believes in something they get completely engrossed without realising the danger they could be putting themselves in. And the focus came from his heart, love for his family.
