Lizzie’s Christmas Escape by Christie Barlow ๐ŸŽ„a book review ๐Ÿ“š

November 21, 2016

Can you believe that there are only just under 5weeks left until Christmas? Where has the whole year gone?

Birthdays, holidays, a whole summer has just flown past infront of our very eyes!

But the end of year celebrations still hold so much excitement and so much to look forward to, and I enjoy the run up to Christmas just as much as the day itself!

Christmasy books are one of my favourite ways to get all festive and this one is just perfect.

The Book –

A gorgeous country house hotel, a liberal dusting of snow, a cosy weekend awayโ€ฆwhat more could Lizzie ask for at Christmas?

Every Christmas Lizzie promises herself that things will change and she will leap into the new year a new woman. And yet here she is again, at the beginning of December and nothing is different. Her girls have grown up and left home, her husband Henry is slumped in front of the TV and she is alone in the kitchen, seeking refuge in the cooking sherry and talking to her Gary Barlow calendar. Sheโ€™s also been very diverted by handsome new neighbour Marcus and she knows she shouldnโ€™t be โ€ฆ

So when best friend Ann suggests a weekend away in the country, Lizzie jumps at the chance. Will this Christmas escape give Lizzie some much needed perspective and allow her to mend her marriage? Or will Marcus prove to be too much of a distraction?


Christie Barlow is one of my favourite authors because she writes so well I feel I am watching the story unfold in front of my very eyes.

The story of Lizzie is an extremely loveable one. With Christmas upon us the setting couldn’t be any more perfect.

I think a lot of married ladies could relate to Lizzie in many ways; her husband goes to work, comes home & watches tv. Lizzie’s kids have flown the nest so thankfully she has her best friend at hand to brighten up her life. Until the day her new neighbour Marcus enters the scene that is.

Twists turns and lots of festive fun!
