Book Review “Flora’s Travelling Christmas Shop” by Rebecca Raisin


Flora’s Travelling Christmas Shop

‘Tis the season for mulled wine, mince pies, and magic under the mistletoe…

Flora loves Christmas more than anything else in the world, so she’s gutted when her Scrooge-alike boss fires her from Deck the Halls Christmas emporium. But now she finally has a chance to follow her dreams – and what better place to start than the home of Christmas?

Before she can say ‘sleigh bells’, Flora’s on her way to Lapland in a campervan-cum-Christmas-shop. She can’t wait to spend her days drinking hot chocolate and taking reindeer-drawn carriage rides, but something Flora didn’t expect was meeting Connor, a Norse god of a man who makes her heart flutter and snowflakes swirl in her stomach. There’s just one problem: Connor hates Christmas.

Can Flora convince Connor of the joys of Christmas – and will she find a festive romance along the way?

Flora’s Travelling Christmas Shop is one of those you need to read wrapped up in a cosy blanket, fire roaring and Christmas Carols playing in the background. It’s the only way to read this exquisitely festive frolic to Lapland.

Normally I don’t read Christmassy books but this year I have found myself giving them a go and actually I am having a right ball, A Christmassy bauble of a time, you might say. This book is a lovely gentle read and throws you head first into the Season of good Will. Flora is a funny character that has it all, a Christmas job, but all year round, a perfect boyfriend and a happy life until she doesn’t have it anymore. What to do now? Well what any sane Christmas loving girl would do, hop in a camper van and off to the real Christmas, Lapland!

The relationship she then finds herself in is with a Christmas hating Connor. This is something Flora can not grasp. I mean who doesn’t like Christmas. It must be easy to turn this mans frown upside down? surely if anyone can change his mind, Flora can, can’t she?

I would have to say, although this book is full of wonderous over the top Christmas cliché’s it definitely a book worth reading. Seriously what is a Christmas read without a few cliché’s along the way. Flora and her antics will certainly put you in the spirit of Christmas, just make sure you have plenty of mince pies and good cheer.
