Book Title: The Reading Group: December

Author: Della Parker

My Rating: 5*


My Review:

I’m a bit late posting my review for The Reading Group: December. However, if you haven’t already grabbed yourself a copy of this lovely little book, I suggest you hit the link below because it’s FREE.

The Reading Group: December, is a delightful, heart-warming story of true friendship. The Reading Group is a series of novellas, December being the first in the series, and it’s here we are introduced to the friends’ who make up the reading group.

Every story is written about a different character, weaving the account of their lives into the book choice of the month.

We’ve all tried to hide our pain and problems from our friends, instead of asking for help, and Grace is no different. Threatened with homelessness just before Christmas, and worried that her young son’s cancer has returned, Grace tries to put on a brave face, but her friends at the reading club see straight through her mask and rush to her aid.

I love how the story is a reflection of the book the group has chosen to read. For December’s novella, Grace’s story shows modern day similarities to A Christmas Carol.

I’ve read a few books by this author, and I find them to be warm, entertaining, and easy to read. I love her writing style and can connect with her characters immediately. I’m looking forward to reading the other books in this series.


‘Brims with laughs, love, family and friendship. You will love this heart-warming read!’ Trisha Ashley.

Grace knows that the holiday season is going to be different this year. No turkey, no tinsel, no gorgeously wrapped gifts under the tree . . . how on earth is she going to break it to her little boys that Christmas is effectively cancelled? And can she bear to tell anyone her embarrassing secret? Enter the Reading Group: Grace’s life might have turned upside down but there’s no problem they can’t solve.

Meet the Reading Group: six women in the seaside village of Little Sanderton come together every month to share their love of reading. No topic is off-limits: books, family, love and loss . . . and don’t forget the glass of red!

Grab your FREE copy of The Reading Group: December from Amazon UK or Amazon US.
