lizzies-christmas-escapePublished: October 2016

Book Blurb: Every Christmas Lizzie promises herself that things will change and she will leap into the new year a new woman. And yet here she is again, at the beginning of December and nothing is different. Her girls have grown up and left home, her husband Henry is slumped in front of the TV and she is alone in the kitchen, seeking refuge in the cooking sherry and talking to her Gary Barlow calendar. She’s also been very diverted by handsome new neighbour Marcus and she knows she shouldn’t be …

So when best friend Ann suggests a weekend away in the country, Lizzie jumps at the chance. Will this Christmas escape give Lizzie some much needed perspective and allow her to mend her marriage? Or will Marcus prove to be too much of a distraction?

My Review

Lizzie’s Christmas Escape was a beautiful Christmas novel about life, love, what happens when you lose your way, and the adventurous path you can take to find yourself again.

This is the story of Lizzie and her best friend Ann and was filled with love, laughter and lots of tears, tragedy, and life changes. It also had secrets and surprises mixed throughout. Sometimes people can surprise you and they aren’t always how them seem. Learning to trust yourself and being true to yourself is important in living life to the fullest.
