Book Reviewed by Stacey on

Deck the Halles is the second book in a series, the first being Fa-La-Llama-La. Whilst this book does work as a standalone and there were plenty of mentions about what happened in the first book, I still believe it would be best to read the first book before starting this one.

Noelle Green and her partner Nick run a kind of farm, they take in waifs and strays of all kinds of animals, including Llamas. Noelle is asked by the committee for Llamas to b

5☆ A Unique Christmas Story, filled with Quirky Fun Loveable Characters and Oodles of Christmas charm!

First of all I want to start by saying how much I adore the cover.... it's sooo cute!
As soon as I see the cover and then read the blurb I was so excited to read this gorgeous book.

If you love llamas then you will Love this book. I find them fascinating and they certainly seem cheeky, but what animal isn't.
I must admit I learnt a few things about llamas that I didn'

nothing puts you in the holiday mood quite like a fa la la la llama 🦙

What a fun feel good festive story full of holiday cheer and llamas! I had no idea llamas were such fascinating and lively animals.... and funny! I was laughing so hard at these crazy llamas trying to master these agility obstacles.... yes there are Lama shows with agility and fancy dress, just like a dog show, well at least they do in France.... so you might be thinking what do llamas have to do with Christmas? Well plenty e

Favorite Quotes:

There were just two very elderly women in the café with us, both of whom looked totally terrifying with their heavy makeup and over-coiffed, thin hair. Each clutched a quivering toy dog of the same remarkably ugly breed. But fair dos to them, they weren’t growing old gracefully. There were fighting it, crowned tooth and lacquered nail.

The word ‘mademoiselle’ may have been banned from all official documents in 2012, but
This story felt like sitting with a much loved friend listening to everything that was happening to them, cringing at some events and laughing out loud with them at others. I learned so much about llamas as I read this story - I never knew there were llama shows with different types of llama, fancy dress competitions and even agility trials until I read this book! The story relates the family dramas, unexpected visitors and tasks to be undertaken as Christmas rapidly approaches in such a fun, fr ...more

Did you know that llama shows exist, similar to dog shows? Different classes of llama, plus some fun categories. Neither did I until I read this book, but seeing Noelle determined to enter her llamas into two categories of the upcoming show just before Christmas,

And which categories is she trying to enter? Well those would be fancy dress and agility. Yes I never knew llamas could do agility courses either, and all of Noelle's attempts to get any of her llamas ready and amenable to taking part a

This is the second book in a series and it can be read as a standalone. Normally I don't read the previous books for the simple reason that you cannot read everything (a shame, isn't it?) but for this one I will gladly make an exception.

There are stories that make you smile but there are others that make you laugh out loud. This one can be put in the latter category. Making people laugh is not easy and who does not want some humour in his life?

Many readers are thrilled to read about llamas. Or expats living in rural France. Or Christmas. Readers- get very excited. Deck the Halles features all three! And the cherry on top of the pain au chocolat is that this book is the second in the “Little French Llama Farm series”. Plenty of delightful tales (and tails!) await you, whether you start with this book or the first!
Noelle is the first-person narrator of this fun farm frolic. In the first book in the series, she and her partner, a rich a

Festive escapism, Deck the Halles is a sequel novel to Fa-La-Llama-La and can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel.

Eleven months since Noelle and Nick ended up together, they've settled into life and routine as there menagerie of stray animals increases. With a Llama Show scheduled for December (who knew they existed!), it's decided they would combine it with the unwritten novel Nick was going to write and launch; on the release day of a rival writer. With a plan in place, they

Having thoroughly enjoyed Fa-La-Llama-La, I was delighted to be back with Nick and Noelle and couldn’t wait to see how their relationship was going. Happily for me, (I do love a good romance) they have settled in nicely to rural French living and things between them seem to be going from strength to strength.
While their first Christmas was chaos, they are looking forward to a quiet one together this year, with just their animals for company. Their plans soon seem to spiral out of control,

My third and final Christmas novel and I have enjoyed reading all of them. This one

especially. Noelle lives with Nick- a well known author in France. She met him as she

was at the time Llama sitting. She is now his editor and has immersed both her and

him into the French countryside living. Part of this is a forthcoming Llama show.

Noelle is determined that she is going to enter two classes- one fancy dress-

Deck The Halles was an entertaining, easy read and despite not having read it's predecessor  Fa-La-Llama-La, I did not have any trouble reading this instalment set the following year. There was just enough information woven into Deck The Halles to make the story an easy, pleasing read, with nothing feeling absent. 

This story had the perfect mixture of festive, funny, romance and Llamas.  Witty and brimming with a fest of wonderful characters. Deck The Halles was a Festive treat that

Have no fear if this is the first book in this series you pick up. You will follow along just fine and have a wonderful time enjoying the holiday season with Noelle and Nick... and as it turns out, family and more. You will laugh and be educated and intrigued and appreciate your own family all the more by the time you are through.
This is a tale of a Christmas that just keeps on giving! Or that never ends, depending on your outlook on life. Everyone has ``plans`` this season. We all know th

My Review 

The Good

I loved the cover and couldn't wait to dive into this book. I guessed it was a romantic comedy, which is my favorite genre... but this one was more. I was not just smiling or giggling - I was laughing!

The Bad

As a dog lover, I never knew that llamas might compete - but they do now!  As an expat myself, I adore literature that is out of the UK. This French farm was delightful but the issues and problems that women have at Christmas

I really enjoyed this story and I loved the llamas!

The story is well written, I loved the characters and it was an easy story to read. The setting was great and was really immersed in the story.

It is a festive treat and has a lot of things going on in the book to keep you fully entertained too!

This is the second in the series but it can be read as a stand alone, in fact I read this one before I read book one and I didn’t feel as though I missed out on

Another brilliantly funny story from Stephanie Dagg, Deck the Halles is the sequel to Fa-La-Llama-La, which I have just finished and thoroughly enjoyed. This is one of those few occasions when I've managed to read all the books in a series in the right order, but I would say Deck the Halles could easily be read as a standalone. References to events in Fa-La-Llama-La and given sufficient detail so the reader does not feel they've missed anything.

In this book, Noelle and Nick have been living toe
