We’re really excited to announce that Christmas at the Comfort Food Cafe by Debbie Johnson will be our book of the month for December. It’s a funny, raunchy, and heartwarming story – perfect for Christmas. Here’s a couple of its reviews:

‘Like a mug of hot chocolate with marshmallows – warm, melting your heart and cheering’ On My Bookshelf

‘Has all the best ingredients for a holiday read: the beautiful West Country, a family-run farm, and a mystery man with Poldark-style charms’ – Yours Magazine
