Here is a little about the book:
You’re never too old to fall in love…
There is a disturbance in the force and octogenarian Hattie Jenkins can feel it in her water. Still active and spritely, she guesses that the miserable-looking gentleman sitting morosely in the café where she works, might be the reason.
Widowed Alfred Miller has recently moved in with his daughter because she is worried that he’s becoming too frail and forgetful to look after himself. And he’s not in the least bit happy about it, especially since his home is soon be cleared and sold.
But when he enlists Hattie’s help to save some of his precious belongings, he doesn’t realise that Hattie’s mission is to save more than a few sticks of furniture. She’s on a mission to save him, too.
Happy Publication Day to The Ticklemore Christmas Toy Shop and famed writer Liz Davies. I’m so excited to have been gifted an early copy of this amazingly heartwarming holiday story. Put this one on your radar right now because I know you are going to love it.
Poor widower Alfred has fallen a few times at home and has become a little forgetful, and now he has been forced to live with his daughter because she is “concerned for his health.” Unhappy about his wife’s passing, and now living under his daughters rule, Alfred is struggling to come to terms with selling his home. Being forced to clean out his house and get rid of all his stuff, especially all his hand-made toys out in the shed he’s that he’s made over the years is especially upsetting.
When Alfred wanders into the local book/coffee shop he meets 80 year old Hattie who works there. An unexpected friendship develops, and as Alfred confides his feelings to Hattie over the new changes in his life, Hattie decides to get involved and hatches a plan. What happens next helps more than just Alfred’s belongings, it could possibly save him too.
Elderly Christmas romance, one of the best kinds of books there is out there. Liz Davis has taken a much forgotten population and reminded us how much spunk and soul our “over the hill” community still has left in them. This is one of the most heartwarming and joyous holiday books I have ever read, and the satisfying warm fuzzy feelings it gives you are the most uplifting I have ever gotten from a Christmas book. I loved this one. Liz is one of my favorite authors, and once again she didn’t disappoint. I think this one might just be one of my favorite holiday reads ever. 5 stars.
Thank you so much to Liz Davies, Rachel Gilbey from Rachels Random Resources for a copy of this book for my honest and unbiased opinion.
About the Author
Liz Davies writes feel-good, light-hearted stories with a hefty dose of romance, a smattering of humour, and a great deal of love.
She’s married to her best friend, has one grown-up daughter, and when she isn’t scribbling away in the notepad she carries with her everywhere (just in case inspiration strikes), you’ll find her searching for that perfect pair of shoes. She loves to cook but isn’t very good at it, and loves to eat – she’s much better at that! Liz also enjoys walking (preferably on the flat), cycling (also on the flat), and lots of sitting around in the garden on warm, sunny days.
She currently lives with her family in Wales, but would ideally love to buy a camper van and travel the world in it.
