Can the magic of Christmas and the community of Thorndale bring two lost souls together in love?
Olivia doesn’t have time for Christmas or for romance – she’s got a demanding career and has been burned before when it comes to love. This year, she’s spending the festive season in her dad’s old house, packing it up now that he’s moved out. Her dad failed to mention she wouldn’t be spending her time there alone…
The last thing Olivia expects is for her surprise guest to be the very man who literally ran from her after an evening of mutual flirtation. But Tom has nowhere else to go and Olivia is determined to forget the disappointment she felt at his abandonment and instead help him find his way again.
As heavy snow keeps them inside the cottage, will their enforced confinement spark romance once again – or will it push them further apart?
Thanks to Canelo for the advanced copy of this title in return for an honest review.
*Contains minor spoilers*
I’ve never read a Suzanne Snow book before, but I think with her name being Snow, it was only apt that the first one was a Christmassy one. Firstly, I am desperate to live in the cottage on the book’s front cover, especially when it’s covered in snow.
It is a very human story. Festive books can have a tendency to err on the fantasy and the whimsical, but this sticks to the real troubles experienced by the main characters, which to me, only accentuates the magic when it does come.
It was warm and comforting and realistic and heartwarming and funny. It’s got everything a real family Christmas should have.
After reading this I desperately need my own Tom to bake mince pies with, to decorate my tree with, to cook with, to sing with, to read with. Oh and my own person bookshop wouldn’t go amiss too.
