Claudes's Christmas Adventure by Sophie Pembroke


Claude's Christmas Adventure by Sophie Pembroke


This was a glorious piece of Yuletide Flotsam and Jetsam. 

Such a fun, light story about  a little French Bulldog called Claude with a voracious appetite and a penchant for gingerbread. It tells the tale of the frazzled family who leave him behind as they travel to be with the in-laws for a family Christmas that is doomed before it begins and the various Human Waifs and strays Claude  befriends in the street where he lives

As the family battle against the odds and French red tape to get home to their lost family member.

Drawn together through this common goal to reunite them, the delightfully fortuitously named Holly  and a besotted ex squaddie, now postman comrade,  Jack have a mounting task. Slowly this hapless trio enter the lives  of the lonely folk on the street who have almost completely  lost the Christmas Spirit!

Sprinkled liberally with Christmas crafts, bakes and lonely souls, this book lends itself to one of those Christmas Movie Channels and was the perfect romantic antidote to a dreary commute.

Highly recommended.

    "Yuletide flotsam & jetsam".... "romantic antidote to a dreary commute." Indeed, what a relief from incessant awful news, to read something light for a few moments that gives a smile.
