A Christmas Tail by Cressida McLaughlin

Absolutely Delightful

A Christmas Tail by Cressida McLaughlin is an absolutely delightful contemporary novel that will make you smile. The title is misleading – although Christmas is celebrated at the end of the book, the novel covers the whole year.

We follow the lead character, Cat, who is an enthusiastic, novice dog-walker as the book opens. Life is chaotic and never dull with Cat around. The dogs all have their unique personalities and endear themselves to the reader.

Cat is a very charming leading lady. She has a huge heart and is a ‘fixer’ but sometimes this lands her in hot water.

There is the pantomime villain in the story who turns out to be misguided and not so bad after all.

Within the tale there is conflict between those who love dogs and a few who don’t – but are determined to spoil life for others.

We also have a love interest. There appears to be a love triangle. I know who I was rooting for!

The leading characters love the series Grey’s Anatomy which is my favourite series too. This meant I got all the references to Meredith and McDreamy!

I absolutely adored A Christmas Tail and cannot wait for more from Cressida McLaughlin.
