THE SNOW GLOBE BY JUDITH KINGHORN REVIEW










The Snow Globe Review :-


The Snow Globe is the first novel of Judith Kinghorn's I have read and it won't be the last. Judith has seamlessly woven two love stories together.  As a history nut i couldn't wait to dive into an historical novel. The novel is set during Christmas 1926. The youngest daughter Daisy is looking forward to Christmas, discovering her fathers affair makes her feel she can not enjoy the celebrations especially when she discovers her mother has invited the mistress to be a guest at Eden Hall. If Daisy couldn't look forward to the celebrations before she certainly feels she can't now.

Three young men are all wanting Daisy's attentions and it is down to her to chose one of her suitors or none of them. This book is filled with family drama and the relationships each has with others as well as amongst themselves.

The characters are all well done and i feel a few of the supporting characters could have a novel to themselves. I couldn't find a weak character in the bunch and they all seemed 3d characters which in some novels i have read recently have been cardboard cut outs. But Judith has nailed the characterisation the historical details can not be faulted. I am looking forward to reading other novels that the author  such as Echo of Twilight.


I give the novel 5 out of 5








Book Blurb

A beautiful story of enduring love and heartbreaking choices.

As Christmas 1926 approaches, the Forbes family are preparing to host a celebration at Eden Hall. Eighteen-year-old Daisy is preoccupied by a sense of change in the air. Overnight, her relationship with Stephen Jessop, the housekeeper’s son, has shifted and every encounter seems fraught with tension. Before the festivities are over, Daisy has received a declaration of love, a proposal and a kiss – from three different men. Unable to bear the confusion she flees to London and stays with her elder sister.
By the following summer, Daisy has bowed to the persistence of the man who proposed to her the previous year. When the family reunite for a party at Eden Hall and Stephen is once more in her life, it is clear to Daisy she is committing to the wrong person. Yet she also believes that family secrets mean she has no choice but to follow her head instead of her heart. Will love conquer all, or is Daisy’s fate already written?

The Big Little Wedding in Carlton Square Review



I haven't read any books previously from this author but loved her writing style. This book reminded me of Pretty Woman, Uber Rich Daniel falls in love with Emma. The problems start when they start to organise their wedding. His mother Phillipa wants an over the top wedding to rival one they had just been too. With Lords and ladies invited how will a working class family be able to compete with the upper classes for the wedding stakes.

Emma is determined to stick to her budget but her fiance Daniel wants to incorporate some of his mother suggestions. This causes a few arguments but weddings along with moving are the most stressful things you can do. This book was light hearted and fun, I loved the bits of cockney rhyming slang included bringing in the real East End into the book. I wasn't sure the Jack the Ripper references were necessary in a romance book but apart from this small quibble i loved this book.

Emma's dad is disabled and i can fully empathise with him wanting to be the bread winner. My husband suffers from a similar disease M.E and i couldn't help but compare the two men's attitudes. Crime Investigation tents a hearse show just how resourceful Emma has been organising a so called traditional East End wedding. Which goes down a storm with the toffs who declare it is better than the wedding in Lugano.

Even an East End flat as a wedding present from Harold, Daniels Godfather puts the icing on the cake.

Five Hearts :)
