A Very Vintage Christmas by Tilly Tennant @TillyTenWriter @bookouture #Review

ARC received from Netgalley.

The fairy lights are up and shoppers are flooding the snowy seaside promenade. It’s going to be a busy month at Forget-Me-Not Vintage, a magical shop with a warm heart where every item has a story to be told.
With bright red hair and an infectious smile, Dodie is a hopeless romantic and absolutely one of a kind, just like the pieces in her shop. 

When Dodie finds a love letter in the pocket of an old woollen coat, she makes it her mission to deliver it to its rightful owner. Following the address, she manages to persuade the handsome but reluctant new tenant, Edward, to help her with her search.

As the story of the letter unfolds, Dodie is there, as always, to pick up the pieces and make things right. But who will be there for her when her own love story needs a helping hand? 

Is it too much to dream of a happy ending like the ones in the black and white movies she adores? 

If you’re looking for a sweep-you-off-your-feet romance that will warm you through and through then the door to Forget-Me-Not Vintage is always open. Perfect for fans of Jane Linfoot, Debbie Johnson and Jenny Colgan.

Seeing as though Christmas is literally around the corner I thought it was a perfect time to share my review of A Very Vintage Christmas by Tilly Tennant. The question is did it put me in a festive mood?

Well... of course it did!

Tilly Tennant is an expert at writing not only a heart warming story but also creating a charming story that will pull you right in. In this story we meet Dodie who owns a vintage clothing shop which I really wish was real. It just sounds so lovely, I would love to have a wander around and try not to spend all my money! Dodie usually buys her stock in bulk and it is in one of these deliveries that she finds a letter. This discovery sets Dodie on quite a journey to find the owner of the letter along with Dodie making some realisations of her own.

The mystery over the letter captured my heart along with the gorgeous addition of romance. This story has a certain magical charm that is perfect for any time of year let alone the festive period. Ed is a perfect addition to the story as he has a slightly mysterious edge too but I loved their friendship and the way he helps Dodie in her search. This story moves at a lovely pace all the way through and once I picked it up it didn't take me long to read at all.

All I can finish with saying is that even though it's cold outside this story will warm your heart completely. I couldn't help but be caught up in Dodie and Ed's wonderful story!

Five stars!

With thanks to Bookouture and Netgalley for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
