Book Review - Finding Colin Firth

This book is like a mug of hot chocolate on a cold winters night.  It's sweet and heart warming and you will want to curl up on a cosy couch until you've finished every last bit.
 The story is based on the point of view from three different women, the only thing they have in common at the start of the book is that they all love Colin Firth and are in or heading to a little town called Boothbay in Maine.
As the story unwinds all three of these ladies path's cross, some in a more significant way than others.
You get to follow their journeys of finding themselves and each other.
Don't let the title mislead you though as you don't need to be a super fan of Mr Firth to enjoy the book (although let's face it, is their anyone who isn't a fan of him?) He, himself never actually appears in the book, so it's not some cringe worthy Hollywood story, its the complete opposite.  Its just about the love these women have for Mr Firth's romantic leading men.  Although be warned you will want to go and have a Colin Firth movie marathon after finishing the book.
There were parts of the book that reminded me of the film Waitress, as one of the main characters bakes pies that some of the town believe have sort of magical powers (don't worry its not got a magic/sci-fi element or anything) and that part of the book reminded me a little of that film, I loved reading about the pie classes and the added bonus of the pie recipes in the back of the book was lovely too.
I really, really enjoyed Finding Colin Firth*.
It is just a super sweet and lovely story.  Even though it's not a 'Christmas book' there is something about it that just makes it seem perfect for this time of year.
I can't recommend this sweet and charming story enough and I can't wait to read more of Mia March's books now too!
Oh and I know they say never judge a book by it's cover but seriously, how can you not when its as beautiful as this.  There is nothing I love more that having books with beautiful covers on display and I will definitely be finding a place for this one on my shelf.
