This is a romance where you aren’t quite sure everything will work out as there are so many obstacles in the path of true love – even when you think things are going to go well someone throws another spanner in the works!
Fate seems to be totally against ‘Tilly’ Carter having anything go right for her at the start of this contemporary romance and, to top it all, the train she should be catching to spend Christmas with her brother is cancelled and there’s no way for her to get there! Too many other things have gone wrong for her when sobbing and in despair, she leaves the station only to be recognised by Dean, the man who broke her heart when she was just 18 years old. Ten years later, he’s still a handsome hunk who makes her dream of happily ever afters gone missing. No wonder she believes Christmas has been cancelled this year!
Dean is the one that got away. He hates the memories he associates with the festive season and can’t believe the change in ‘Tilly’, she’s no longer the firecracker he always loved- she’s even dyed her brilliant fiery hair a mousy brown colour and her clothes are drab colours, too! He is determined to rescue her without breaking the promise he made to her brother all those years ago but will fate take another twist, and can Christmas magic work on them both to bring them together at last?
The characters are well portrayed, the setting is Manchester, the Peak District and Sheffield – all familiar locations to me – and beautifully described. The book is a great festive read and I’ll be looking out for other books by this author!
