Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
I’m delighted to share with you information about the fifth book in the Life on the Moors series by Eliza J Scott – the fabulously festive: A Christmas Wedding At The Castle . Read on to discover more about the book, read my review of it and find out more about its author!
Do you believe in fate? Livvie Weatherill does…
This time last year, if anyone had told Livvie Weatherill she’d have fallen in love and would be making plans for her Christmas wedding to Zander Gillespie, she would have laughed in their face. If they’d gone on to say they’d be planning to have their wedding at the imposing Danskelfe Castle, she’d have laughed even louder!
But it would seem fate had plans for her…
Since moving to the pretty moorland village of Lytell Stangdale Livvie is happier than she’s ever been. She’s living with Zander and she’s working at her dream job as a wedding dress designer at Romantique with her friends, Kitty and Violet. It’s fair to say, she’s enjoying immersing herself in village life, from romantic walks in the countryside, to meeting friends at the quaint Sunne Inne. And she can’t think of anything better than rounding off the day cosying up with Zander.
Life is sweet.
Her blossoming friendship with Freda Easton, the endearing but reclusive elderly lady who lives down the lane, has taken everyone by surprise. But Freda has a secret and, in a turn of events no one could predict, she finds herself grateful for Livvie’s fierce loyalty, cementing their friendship further.
Just when things seem to be running smoothly, a face from the past arrives on the doorstep casting a shadow over Livvie’s wedding plans. Adding to the drama, an icy blast of Arctic air brings heavy snowfall to the village, covering the moors in a thick blanket of snow.
Is their love strong enough to withstand the challenges thrown at them? Will they get their magical Christmas wedding?
Join Livvie and Zander – and all the usual characters – for a sparkling Christmas full of love and laughter in Lytell Stangdale.
My thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
What a heartwarming, delightful festive read this novel is – I thoroughly enjoyed my return visit to the fabulous North Yorkshire Moors and the remote village of Lytell Stangdale with its fantastic mix of characters whose antics always bring a smile to my face! Having said that, I believe you don’t need to have read the earlier books to enjoy this – but be warned, it is such a great read I suspect you’ll want to read them, too!
Livvie and Zander met last Christmas and are planning to marry just before Christmas. Get ready for plenty of laughter and drama as the two endeavour to plan their dream wedding, much to the chagrin of Livvie’s Mum and sister. There are new friendships, including a very special one with the reclusive Freda Easton who eventually reveals some surprising information about her past and family. There are charismatic canine friends, terrible, threatening twists from an ex-partner, a wonderful wedding venue, fun friends, a charming community but shocking snowy weather causing potential chaos before any wedding can take place!
This is a brilliant read, full of humour, fun and lots of incidents which just go to prove that Livvie really is right to believe in fate! The village characters are superbly portrayed, they feel like folks you could actually meet and some of the text innuendoes and misunderstood acronyms all add to the enjoyment of this fantastic festive read. It is a story filled with love, friendship and dreams that also shows that kindness really can have its own rewards. I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending this to anyone looking for a fun, festive romance or two in a delightful, close knit community.

When she’s not reading or gardening, Eliza also enjoys bracing walks in the countryside, rounded off by a visit to a teashop where she can indulge in another two of her favourite things: tea and cake.
Her biggest weakness is ginger biscuits dunked in tea.
Eliza is inspired by her beautiful surroundings and loves to write heartwarming romance stories with relatable female characters. She enjoys exploring the dynamics of female friendship, with a key feature of her books being how women pull together and support one another when things get tough.
Eliza’s novels will always have happy endings.
