Blurb: This Christmas pantomime is about to be the talk of the town! Luna Bay’s festive preparations are well under way and the much anticipated annual pantomime is to be, once again, the highlight of the season. Too bad that the village’s very own actress and darling of Broadway, Alice Woods, isn’t feeling in the mood for Christmas.
Until the pantomime comes under threat and a grief-stricken Alice is forced to push her personal pain aside and step up to direct – after all, the show must go on..
So with (more than) a little help from her new found friends, not to mention one very gorgeous Hollywood A-list celebrity, the play begins to come together, but will Alice finally believe that Christmas is a time for miracles after all?
My honest thoughts on this book:
This Sunday it's my stop on The Silver Bells Christmas Pantomime. I have read all Lynsey's previous books, and I can honestly say they never fail to put a smile on my face! Lynsey has a huge talent with words, and her description of the fictional place of Luna Bay are tantalising and vibrant.
In this third instalment in Luna Bay series, we are introduced to yet another interesting character Alice Woods. The opening chapter of this book gives a pretty good idea about Alice's life and her intense dislike of the festive season.
But what could be worst then dressing in an elf costume or Santa's outfit when the only thing Alice wants to do is to barracked herself in her charming cottage and don't stick her nose out until the merry season is over?
Well, Alice is asked to be involved in the yearly village Christmas pantomime, and after her heartbreak, the last thing our lovely heroine wants to do is act or perform in front of an audience. But with the help of the fantastic cast of Luna Bay residents, Alice is slowly coming out of her hiding place and start to live her life again. There may even be a spark of a new romance rising on the horizon and taking the shape of a handsome Hollywood actor.
The Silver Bell Christmas Pantomime is full of emotions, warmth and friendliness and could be a fabulous gift idea under anyone's Christmas tree.
About Lynsey James:
Lynsey James was born in Fife in 1991 and has been telling people how to spell her name ever since. She's an incurable bookworm who loves nothing more than getting lost in a good story with memorable characters. She started writing when she was really young and credits her lovely Grandad- and possibly a bump on the head from a Mr Frosty machine- with her love of telling stories. She used to write her own episodes of Friends and act them out in front of her family (in fact she's sure she put Ross and Rachel together first!)
A careers adviser at school once told Lynsey writing wasn’t a “good option” and for a few years, she believed her. She tried a little bit of everything, including make-up artistry, teaching and doing admin for a chocolate fountain company. The free chocolate was brilliant. When Lynsey left my job a couple of years ago, she started writing full-time while she looked for another one. As soon as she started working on her story, Lynsey fell in love and decided to finally pursue her dream. She haven’t looked back since.
When Lynsey's not writing, eating cake or drinking tea, she's daydreaming about the day Dylan O’Brien FINALLY realises they're meant to be together. It’ll happen one day…
