A Christmas Hamster by Stephanie Dagg #Review #Funny #Romance #Giveaway #BlogTour


Cam’s career and romantic prospects take a nose dive once she becomes guardian to her young nephew. She leaves a bustling Dutch city to move to a small, dull country town in England, and where once she restored magnificent old paintings to their former glory, now she operates the paint-mixing machine at a soulless hardware store. As much as she adores little Rowan, life has lost some of its sparkle.

However, a handsome and charming customer causes her heart to flutter once more. Fate, alas, seems determined to hamper any possibility of them getting together. So what chance does a tiny, naughty hamster have of bringing happiness this Christmas?

This is a festive, light-hearted and uplifting romcom novella.

My Review:

This is a delightful, fun, festive novella – with a hamster with Houdini like tendencies acting as matchmaker!! It is packed with laugh out loud moments, escapades and great characters.

Cam has given up on her career as an art restorer in the Netherlands to return to the small country town in England to bring up her nephew, Rowan, after his mother was killed in an accident. She is working part time in a local hardware store where she operates the paint-mixing machinery. but her life revolves around Rowan and his activities. Still, a person can dream, can’t they? When a handsome gentleman comes in, Cam certainly starts to dream! However, there will be plenty of surprises before they can have any hope of a HEA!

If you’re looking for a light hearted, easy read that will put a smile on your face as you read it, look no further, this book is ideal. I found it a hilarious read, especially with the hamster playing such a pivotal role as he seems able to escape no matter what Cam and Rowan try. The story is believable, the characters well developed and the plot has some great surprises en route. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this book!

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book. This is my honest review after thoroughly enjoying reading it.

Author Bio –

I’m an English expat living in France, having moved here with my family in 2006 after fourteen years as an expat in Ireland. Taking on seventy-five acres with three lakes, two hovels and one cathedral-sized barn, not to mention an ever increasing menagerie, makes for exciting times. The current array of animals ranges from alpacas to zebra finches, with most letters of the alphabet represented. And of course there are hamsters!

I’m a traditionally-published author of many children’s books, and have been self-publishing fiction and non-fiction for adults for the last seven years. I combine freelance work as an editor with running carp fishing lakes with husband Chris. When time allows I enjoy cycling, geocaching, knitting and gardening.
