Book review of The First Noel at the Villa des Violettes by Patricia Sands

My review today is for The First Noel at the Villa des Violettes, a Christmas novella by Patricia Sands.

This festive novella does so much. It not only takes us back to Kat and Philippe and their villa in Provence, where we left them in book three celebrating their marriage, it also shares many of the delightful Provencal Christmas foods and traditions as well as taking us to the Christmas markets of Alsace.

I was so pleased to get back to the Provence that Patricia describes so well, and to spend time with Kat and Philippe. I thought this book was a wonderful mix of familiar characters, love, family, good friendships and French festive fun. Kat is anxious, both about her first Christmas at their villa and about history repeating itself with trouble from the past rearing its head again, but with Philippe being his usual loving, strong and supportive self, I had no doubt their first Christmas would be just perfect. 

The First Noel at the Villa des Violettes is out now in ebook and paperback format and I know we are all busy in the run up to Christmas, but I encourage you to make time for this quick read.
