Rating 4/5

This is a delightful second chance romance set mainly in the mountains near Cherry Lake, Montana.

Lil Reynolds has grown up in Cherry Lake and is well known there as a regular volunteer and supporter of community events. Unfortunately the event happening on christmas eve this year is her ex-fiance is getting married, on the same date they had planned. Now she’s the one that broke their engagement but the sympathetic comments and looks from others are starting to get to her so she’s planned on escaping alone to her mountain cabin for the festive season. Well, that’s what she planned!

Casey Lanigan is the older brother of Lil’s ex – and another very secret ex boyfriend of Lil. He’s the ‘bad boy’ of the family, always being criticised by his father, never seemingly able to do anything right but Lil and he worked together well in his family’s firm and were in a developing but secret relationship until he got arrested and she ran. He’s back in town, having made a success of his life, he’s due to be best man at his brother’s wedding but he’s argued with his father one more time and now plans on leaving Cherry Lake again. He’s never forgotten Lil and when he ends up in a blizzard and stuck in the isolated cottage with her, they’re both having to come to terms with their past and to decide what they want for the future – together or apart?

This is a great addition to the Cherry Lake series, a quick read where it is very easy to empathise with the two main characters, especially Casey and the drama in their history, a delightful festive read with a lovely HEA ending.

Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.
