Guest Review: Comfort and Joy by Cathy Bramley

It’s been a busy year for Verity Bloom at the Plumberry School of Comfort Food, but Christmas Eve is finally here. With delicious treats all wrapped up and the ingredients packed away, Verity is looking forward to a relaxing few days with her new boyfriend.

Good food, family and friends – it’s a simple recipe for true comfort and joy, and all Verity’s friends in the village are full of excitement about the holidays too.

But the weather has other plans in store… Relentless rain leads to a power cut that spells disaster for many of Plumberry’s residents. It’s starting to look like this year’s celebrations could be a total washout.

With dreams of a perfect Christmas dashed, will the last of the festive cheer be swept away in the downpour? Or can the cookery school create a Christmas miracle for everyone Verity holds dear?

Comfort and Joy: A Christmas Short Story

A festive and heart warming short story from Cathy Bramley, featuring the Plumberry School of Comfort Food, the subject of Cathy's highly enjoyable e-serial and book published earlier this year. 

Here, we catch up with the majority of the characters featured in the earlier book, finding out what has been happening to them and the town of Plumberry in the meantime. Verity Bloom, owner of the cookery school is looking forward to a nice, relaxing Christmas, but Mother Nature has other ideas. It's up to Verity and her friends to come up with a plan to avert what could be a disastrous Christmas all round. 

Although this is a short story, there is a lot going on in its pages. Drama, romance, mouthwatering food - it's all there. I would heartily recommend this as an ideal read to pass a couple of hours and get you into a Christmas mood.
