The Windmill Café: Christmas Trees by Poppy Blake

Christmas Trees (Book 3)

As Rosie Barnes takes her latest batch of warm St Clement’s mince pies from the oven, even December’s wintery weather can’t dampen her spirits. With friends Grace and Josh getting married on Christmas Eve, and her beloved Windmill Café hosting its inaugural Christmas Tree Carousel competition the night before, there’s so much to look forward to.

But when Theo, one of the stag party, has a nasty accident during a bike race through the woods, the mood turns chilly. With someone potentially targeting wedding guests, Grace begs Rosie to team up again with outward bound instructor Matt, to try and solve the mystery and save her wedding.

With Rosie’s tree competition and Grace’s marriage at stake, they need to act fast. Can they find the culprit before Willerby’s winter wonderland turns into a festive fiasco?


This is the third book of Poppy Blake’s ‘The Windmill Café‘ series which I was not aware of before I started reading however this wasn’t a problem as the lovely tale was easy to follow as a stand-alone short story.

It is a lovely Christmas story with all the friendship, romance, mystery and suspense which goes into making the perfect family Christmas romance.  I enjoyed the fast pace of this book which is expertly penned and will be recommending to fellow readers.

Thank you to NetGalley, Harper Impulse and Killer Reads and Poppy Blake for the opportunity to read and review this novel.
