After the worst year of her life, Valentina is facing a bleak festive season.
But things might be about to change.
Could a sprinkling of Christmas magic help her turn a corner, and bring her the hope and happiness she's yearning for?
I want to just say, I want more of Valentina, or well Tina as she is known. I know this is only a small story but I want more about her. Being such a short book, one I finished in half my lunch break just left me wanting more. We whizzed through Tina, we revisit her meeting with Ruby and how she ends up with the man she is meant to be with. But yes, I want more, there is more to be told on those pages.
Always a bother when you read a novella because you get into the book and then it finishes. It was over too quickly and I wasn’t ready for that. Despite this, it was a lovely addition to the series and hopefully, we shall see more from Tina in the future.
It was also nice to see the girls from a different perspective, someone outside of the circle and for us to have Tina was lovely. I can’t believe how much I loved her in those short pages, maybe I could relate to the loss of a parent at a young age, I just instantly connected with her.
I really do hope this is not the last time we see Tina!
Until the next time xxx
