My review of Christmas at Mistletoe Cottage by Lucy Daniels (@SCMcG) #BlogTour #BookReview

Today I am delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for Christmas at Mistletoe Cottage by Lucy Daniels!!


Christmas has arrived in the village of Welford. The scent of hot roasted chestnuts is in the air, and a layer of frost sparkles on the ground.

This year, vet Mandy Hope is looking forward to the holidays. Her animal rescue centre, Hope Meadows, is up and running – and she’s finally going on a date with Jimmy Marsh, owner of the local outward bound centre.

The advent of winter sees all sorts of animals cross Mandy’s path, from goats named Rudolph to baby donkeys – and even a pair of reindeer! But when a mysterious local starts causing trouble, Mandy’s plans for the centre come under threat. She must call on Jimmy and her fellow villagers to put a stop to the stranger’s antics and ensure that Hope Meadows’ first Christmas is one to remember.

One thing’s for certain: this Christmas, there’ll be animal escapades, kisses under the mistletoe…and plenty of festive cheer for all.

Hope Meadows is based on the globally bestselling Animal Ark series. Perfect for fans of Katie Fforde and Cathy Bramley.


I LOVED this book!!  I am a massive animal lover having always had pets from a young age (we currently have three chinchillas) so any book having pets and Christmas was always going to tick the right boxes for me – and I just adore the cover!

I thought that the story was great and the writing style is spot on throughout the book. It really flows so well that I flew through the book in no time at all.  Mandy and Jimmy are fantastic characters and I loved their interaction.

I always wanted to be a vet when I was younger so I think I harbour a secret longing to read any books that have vets in the main roles so I can live the job through them!  They are certainly one of the first books I will go to if I need a pick me up and this book did just the job – it is a book that I would re-read (and that doesn’t happen that often)!

I couldn’t give this book anything other than a 5 stars review – I really enjoyed the whole thing and very highly recommend it – a really lovely read!!
