Christmas at Woolworths by Elaine Everest

Mystery on Christmas time during the War!



Even though there was a war on, the Woolworths girls brought Christmas cheer to their customers

Best friends Sarah, Maisie and Freda are brought together by their jobs at Woolworths.

With their loved ones away on the front line, their bonds of friendship strengthen each day.

Betty Billington is the manager at Woolworths, and a rock for the girls, having given up on love . . .

Until a mysterious stranger turns up one day – could he reignite a spark in Betty?

As the year draws to a close, and Christmas approaches, the girls must rely on each other to navigate the dark days that lie ahead . . .
With so much change, can their friendship survive the war?


My 2 Pence:

We have Christmas, Mystery and WWII in this book! What is not to love? 3 of my favourite things in a book that is so easy to read and captures all the emotions around the war time and how having a friend is so appreciated and needed in those times. A very heartwarming novel.

This was the 1st book I’ve read from Elaine but now I NEED to read the Butlins Girls as well.

Super recommended this book with a nice cuppa and hoping for Christmas to arrive.
