Mistletoe and Mystery by Daisy James

I’m delighted to be part of the blog tour for this great book today. Thanks so much to Canelo for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the blog tour.


Welcome to the Cotswolds Festive Feast cookery course…
Fresh off the successful opening of the Paradise Cookery School in St Lucia, Millie Harper is headed to the Cotswolds for Christmas!
Co-presenting Claudia Croft’s famous Festive Feast cookery course at Stonelea Manor is a dream come true for Millie…as is reuniting with gorgeous estate manager Zach Barker.
But arriving in a winter wonderland Millie learns the manor is under a mysterious threat. It’ll take a holiday miracle, but Millie is determined to save the school and get Zach under the mistletoe to finally finish what they started in the Caribbean!
Cosy up with this fun, festive visit to the Cotswolds premier cookery school! Perfect for fans of Jenny Oliver and Sarah Morgan.


This book was a pleasure to read. It’s just perfect to get you in the festive mood.

I hadn’t read the others in the series before I read this one, and it’s perfectly fine to read as a standalone, but I now really want to read the others, as this one was so good.

Millie is such a character. She’s so disorganised and a bit clumsy, but you can’t help but love her!

I was drawn straight away into the lives of everyone in Stonelea Manor and the village, and the characters are superb.

The writing in this book is wonderful, the imagery and language are so evocative, it really adds depth to the story.

Such a well written, feel-good and cosy novel, it has all the elements for the perfect Christmas read.

MY RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Daisy James is a Yorkshire girl transplanted to the north east of England. She loves writing stories with strong heroines and swift-flowing plotlines. When not scribbling away in her summerhouse, she spends her time sifting flour and sprinkling sugar and edible glitter. She loves gossiping with friends over a glass of something pink and fizzy or indulging in a spot of afternoon tea – china plates and teacups are a must.
