Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Delightful read – Snowflakes Over Bay Tree Terrace by Fay Keenan

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 firesspectacular scenery, and unforgettable characters.  Perfect for all fans of Cathy Bramley, Fern Britton and Katie Fforde.

My Review:

A surprise inheritance has teacher Florence Ashton moving from Yorkshire to her new home and job in Willowbury in Someset. As she gets settled in, it is a time for her to know the neighbours, be coerced into playing a lead role in the local drama society’s seasonal adaptation, have opportunities to make new friends and there’s even a possible romance.

This is a heartwarming read, with a real sense of community spirit. It also deals with the problems associated with recovery from traumatic events and keeping secrets from your family! It is a story with drama on and off the stage, more than one romance and plenty of twists, turns and laughter before any of them can find their chance to live happily ever after!

It is one of my first Christmasy reads this summer and it was lovely to escape our current reality and virtually join this delightful story of community, family, love and romance.

Thank you to Boldwood Books and NetGalley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
