Blogiversary Giveaway #17: Win a couple of Jenny Oliver Christmas books

Today it's a bumper day of Christmas giveaway prizes thanks to the generosity of Sara at Carina UK.

The first prize bundle you could win are for two Jenny Oliver books, a paperback copy of The Parisian Christmas Bake Off as well as a copy of her latest eBook The Little Christmas Kitchen.

Welcome to the most celebrated patisserie competition in Paris – ready, steady, bake!

Watching snowflakes settle on the Eiffel Tower, Rachel Smithson’s cosy English village feels very far way – as, thankfully, does her commitment-phobic ex, probably already kissing someone else under the mistletoe. But Rachel hasn’t come to Paris to mope she’s come to bake. Hard. 

Because the search for Paris’s next patisserie apprentice is about to begin! And super-chef judge Henri Salernes is an infamously tough cookie. But Rachel isn’t about to let her confidence (or pastry) crumble. She’s got one week, mounds of melt-in-the-mouth macaroons and towers of perfect profiteroles to prove that she really is a star baker. 

As well as clouds of flour, and wafts of chocolate and cinnamon, there’s definitely a touch of Christmas magic in the air… Rachel hasn’t come to Paris looking for a fairy-tale romance, but the city of love might gift-wrap her one anyway… 

Christmas at the Davenports' house was always about one thing: food.

But when sisters Ella and Maddy were split up, Ella to live in London with their Dad, and Maddy staying in Greece with their Mum, mince pies lost their magic. 

Now, a cheating husband has thrown Ella a curved snowball… and for the first time in years, all she wants is her mum. So she heads back to Greece, where her family’s taverna holds all the promise of home. Meanwhile, waitress Maddy’s dreams of a white Christmas lead her back to London… and her Dad.

But a big fat festive life-swap isn’t as easy as it sounds! And as the sisters trade one kitchen for another, it suddenly seems that among the cinnamon, cranberries and icing sugar, their recipes for a perfect Christmas might be missing a crucial ingredient: each other. 

Simply enter via the Rafflecopter form below.  The winner will be selected at random and contacted for postal details to pass onto Sara, along with your email address, to enable her to send you your prizes.
