My Review:

This author writes great reel-good romances that I love escaping into and this is no exception. In this festive romance Pippa Hardy is joining her family, as you may have guessed, celebrating Christmas in a little cottage by the sea. What she wasn’t anticipating was that Joe Roberts would be joining them! She and Joe had dated when they were younger but his interfering mother had driven them apart. Now it seems she has died and Joe was going to be alone for Christmas so his best friend, Pippa’s brother Luke, had invited him to join them. Is this a second chance for them both or has time driven them further apart?

There are other guests and more than one romance in this heartwarming story. It is a relatively quick read but is still enthralling and delightful to escape into. The characters are well developed, there are plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing and it is a truly magical Christmas read that I have no hesitation in highly recommending! This is a book I ordered and purchased as soon as I knew it was available, that should be a recommendation in itself!

Synopsis:

This winter, curl up with the new festive novella from the author of The Cosy Cottage Cafe series.

Driving around unfamiliar country lanes, while enduring the scorn of her teenage daughter, wasn’t how Pippa Hardy thought she’d start the Christmas holidays, but her satnav seems to be more confused than she is.

Joe Roberts has had a difficult year following the loss of his mother. Added to this, he’s trying to run his own business while dealing with pressure from his sister about when he’ll finish renovating their mother’s house. So when his best friend, Luke Hardy, invites him to a remote Welsh cottage to join his family for Christmas, it seems like the break he needs.

Christmas at a cottage by the sea sounds appealing, but sometimes having all the people you care about together in one place can be a festive recipe for disaster — especially when unexpected guests arrive.

As snow falls, carols play and Pippa and Joe face the ghosts of Christmas past under the mistletoe, they realise that there might actually be more than festive magic sparkling between them.
