As the snowflakes fall, new love blossoms…
When teacher Florence Ashton receives a surprise inheritance, she decides to make the life-changing decision to up sticks to the charming town of Willowbury in Somerset. With a new house and a new job, she’s too busy putting down roots to think about love.
Air Ambulance pilot Sam Ellis is definitely not looking for romance either, especially not on his doorstep. When Florence, his new neighbour, complains about his noisy housemate, he feels more cross than star-crossed.
But as the nights draw in and both find themselves thrown together in Willowbury’s seasonal drama production, will they overcome their differences and allow a little bit of winter magic to fall along with the snow? And what secrets will be revealed by the box of memories Florence finds in the attic at Bay Tree Terrace?
Let Fay Keenan transport you to the perfect country winter wonderland, with roaring fires, spectacular scenery, and unforgettable characters.
I must start by saying I think it is definitely a bit too early to be reading and reviewing Christmas books, especially when it’s still so hot here in France! But I appreciate authors and publishers want to get their offerings in front of an audience in good time. I just hope that you won’t have forgotten all about this book when the chill of November puts you in a mood for a Christmassy read.
Aunts are so handy in literature when they die and leave legacies that change the heroine’s life! It’s a familiar trope but always interesting, and this author handles it in an original way.
Florence and Sam are very engaging as hero and heroine. Neither is perfect as each comes with a certain amount of baggage and flaws but that’s what we want and expect from this genre. They meet, grate, grumble and finally begin understand each other, with lots of lovely will-they won’t-they along the way.
This is a lovely, easy read, with the right amounts of comedy and romance and seasonal atmosphere for the perfect, festive romcom. I shall read it again during once the night’s have really drawn in as I’m sure it will resonate and entertain even more then.
Love the cover!
