You are invited to spend CHRISTMAS ON THE CLOSE where each of the neighbours are celebrating in their own special way.

Diane always enjoys baking special festive treats, which she happily delivers to her friendly neighbours on The Close as Christmas approaches.

When she decides to seek closure with a romantic matter from her past, she unexpectedly finds herself on an emotional journey she isn’t prepared for.

Her granddaughter, Emma, has all the technical know-how to assist in the search for answers, but is distracted by an intense – and highly unsuitable – romance of her own.

The two women must deal with unsettling issues as they begin to face the reality of their situations, but their familial bond helps to provide the security and support they need to answer the questions they face.

The sixth standalone episode of ‘Christmas on The Close’ reveals how it may be easier to allow the head to make all the decisions, but the heart will never stop fighting for what it really wants.

My thoughts

Diane is in her 80’s,  lives in The Close and is getting ready for Christmas.  This year she’s decided she needs to get some closure from something that happened to her when she was a teenager.  As she starts looking back at her memories and her past, she sets herself for an unexpected emotion journey….. Alongside her is her Granddaughter who sets out to help her Granny, but also has her own love life issues.  What will happen for them both? And what will be The Christmas Miracle?

I’ve not read any of the the other books in the Christmas on the Close series, but would love to check them out after this.  At the beginning of the book you’re introduced to the street and who lives where, and then the story goes on – this time, specifically about Diane.  She’s a lovely older lady and going through her journey with her was heartwarming.  I absolutely loved the way the book ended!

The people on The Close all sound fabulous, and I love that the stories are like a soap opera.  It’s a short story, easy to read and will most definitely warm your heart.  This is perfect to read if you want a quick, lovely story with a bit of a festive theme and a wonderful ending.  Recommended by me.

about the author

Stephanie Wood writes contemporary fiction in the form of novels, novellas and short stories and you can find the running order of her titles on the first page of any book.

She published the AEGEAN SUN series of books as a fly-on-the-wall vision of life in a Greek resort during the summer season, using her extensive experience as a holiday rep to bring some unusual incidents to life on the page. The series began as an exploration of the various ways in which tourists make the most of their holidays and how they interact with the locals while they are visiting. The later books in the series have taken a closer look at the locals themselves and show how their lives and relationships are sometimes changed by the regular influx of seasonal visitors.

The CHRISTMAS ON THE CLOSE series is set in a British suburban cul-de-sac over the festive period and visits each house individually to discover how the neighbours who live there celebrate the season in their own special way.

Stephanie lives in Lancashire where, apart from reading and writing, she loves gardening and cycling and is a huge fan of the soaps Emmerdale and Neighbours.
