As the snowflakes start to fall, the village of Holly Cove welcomes a new tenant to the beautiful old cottage on the beach…

For lifestyle magazine journaist Tia Armstrong, relationships, as well as Christmas, have lost all their magic. Yet Tia is up against a Christmas deadline for her latest article ‘Love is, actually, all around’…

So Tia heads to Holly Cove where the restorative sea air, and rugged stranger Nic, slowly but surely start mending her broken heart.

Tia didn’t expect a white Christmas, and she certainly never dared dream that all her Chiristmas wishes might just come true…

Set in Caswell Bay on the stunningly rugged Gower Coast, the cottage nestles amid the limestone cliffs and the woodlands; the emotions run as turbulently as the wind-swept sea.

 

 

My review

My first book by this author and it keep my attention the whole way through. It was a kind of Chrismassy story but not really. The story itself felt like opening the door to a store filled with emotions.

The author takes you on a journey from sadness to happiness, from falling out to making peace, from broken hearts to happy ever afters, from strangers to friends, from silence to conversations. She adds some unexpected spins to keep you entertained even more.

It was fluently written and I really liked the writing style. For me it had one big message : you can’t stop love. When it creeps upon you, you can only do one thing : welcome it with open arms and enjoy. 5 stars.

Thank you, Lucy Coleman and RachelsRandomResources.
