Humbugs & Heartstrings by Catherine Ferguson! & Giveaway

Two ex-friends. One Christmas to remember …
Bobbie's boss Carol is a real misery-guts, dedicated to making the lives of everyone around her unhappy in pursuit of every last penny. What makes it worse is that the two women have history: they were once best friends.
When handsome hotelier Charlie steps into the frame the two women go to battle as one sees a romantic future and the other a possible lifeboat for her business.
With wonderful warmth and humour – and the odd mince pie fight – the women are forced to confront their shared past, the turbulent present and, most importantly, the potential of the future.
Curl up this Christmas with this heartwarming and funny read. You’ll never look at a mince pie in the same way again…


Carol is a horrible boss and she's doing everything she can to make Bobbie's life as miserable as possible. Still Bobbie keeps working for her as they have a history together. They used to be best friends. When Bobbie gets the impossible assignment to find Carol a luxurious hotel in London for a crazy, impossibly cheap price, she ends up chatting with Charlie who's promising her to see what he can do. Bobbie enjoys their chats very much and is very surprised when Charlie turns up as soon as Carol's back from London. They both have an interest in the same man and there are so many old wounds that need to be healed. Will Carol and Bobbie find a way out of this situation or will they be each others rivals and ruin things between them forever?
Humbugs & Heartstrings is a story about two friends who have landed themselves in an unfortunate situation. Instead of dealing with their issues and talking about them they have done the exact opposite. Carol is now very mean to Bobbie and the rest of her staff and there doesn't seem to be any warmth and empathy left in her. She's treating everyone like crap and is interested in Charlie mainly for his money. Her business is suffering and she needs to find a way out. He's the perfect solution. For Bobbie he's everything she's ever wanted in a man, but because of her friend she isn't very sure what to do. Most of the money she earns is for her family and she's always saving money, because her brother needs surgery. She's such a sweet and caring person and she always puts everyone else's needs first, but eventually that's going to take its toll. Carol comes from a rich family and even though that means she's always had enough money to spend it doesn't mean her life is perfect. Money means something completely different to both friends and eventually that has come between them. Not having money is never easy, especially when there are people you have to please. Money should never come between friends, but it so often does. I liked how Catherine Ferguson used this theme to build her characters. They're all interesting people and I kept wanting to read more about them. The story is quite funny from time to time as well, because of some crazy cat fights. I really enjoyed reading Humbugs & Heartstrings, it's a great story about love and friendship.
