Mistletoe & Mystery
Fresh off the successful opening of the Paradise Cookery School in St Lucia, Millie Harper is headed to the Cotswolds for Christmas!
Co-presenting Claudia Croft’s famous Festive Feast cookery course at Stonelea Manor is a dream come true for Millie…as is reuniting with gorgeous estate manager Zach Barker.
Mistletoe & Mystery is the third book in the Paradise Cookery School series. But although you can read this as a standalone I would highly recommend reading them all as they are absolutely delicious!
First of all I want to start by saying Do Not Read This Mouth watering Book on an Empty Tummy. My Tummy was rumbling so hard it kept me awake lol
This time round Millie, is off too the Cotswold to help Claudia present and teach her Festive Feast C ...more
As much as I would have loved a return to St. Lucia, it would have felt weird for a wintery book - especially when the cookery course being run is called Festive Feast.
Over the course of a week Claudia and Milie teach the customers how to make all the diff ...more
This book was full of friendships and romance and was such a lovely read. There is an air of mystery surrounding Claudia's home. I loved meeting her husband and his delightfully chaotic approach to lif ...more
I absolutely adore this cover, it is gorgeous!
This was a really easy story to read, it had a great flow and I read it in a few hours after my daughter had gone to bed for the night and my husband was at work – a real treat for some well earned “me” time!
The characters are lovely and I really warmed to them, they worked really well within the story and their interaction was spot on. 4.5 stars from me rounded up to 5 stars for Amazon and Goodreads – highly r ...more
In this third and final, instalment, Daisy James takes us off to the Cotswolds where Claudia has another cookery school and this time she needs Millie's help in teaching her Festive Feast cookery course.
In this book, Millie is desperate to see Zach again as he is back f ...more
I didn't realise it was part of a series so I was grateful the author mentioned events from the previous two books for any new readers. I will be adding the first two books to my TBR pile.
Aspiring cook Millie Harper is invited by her mentor Claudia Croft to act as a co presenter on her Festive Feast Course which will be based at her lavish home in the Cotswolds. Millie jumps at the chance to see Claudia`s estate manager Zach again wh ...more
This is the usual formulaic romance. Millie had a couple of exchanges with Zach in St. Lucia and can't wait to see him again. In this encounter, he ...more
Another lovely feelgood book, the characters are all warm and interesting and although the book is predictable it is still a good read and great to be back with the characters from the Paradise, although it could easily be read as a standalone book
Let me quickly just say that I think the cover is stunning - perhaps the best one of the series yet! I adore the dark sky, the snowflakes surrounding the cover, the thick snow a ...more
Now miles away from St Lucia in the Cotswolds, Millie finds herself holding the fort and longing for a romance with the gorgeous Zach.
Entirely possible to read as a standalone book but makes more sense as #3 in the series
4* - i look forward to more Millie mishaps!
I did not read the first two books in The Paradise Cooking School series so I was grateful the author mentioned events from the previous two books for any new readers.

I enjoyed this book - a cosy easy read which is a treat to read. A good cast of characters which I warmed to and enjoyed how their stories interacted. A lovely snowy setting forms the perfect location.
A tasty treat for a cosy afternoon on the sofa with a lovely hot cuppa. Looking forward to reading more from Daisy James.
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read this bo ...more
It is a book all about the best elements of Christmas, being surrounded by fantastic people, gorgeous food and a festive snowy setting.
This book will make anyone feel Christmassy, warm and fuzzy no matter what the weather outside. A brilliant book to read in the countdown to Christmas! A big warm fuzzy 4.5 stars
