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

Superb addition to a brilliant series – Christmas in Bellbird Bay by Maggie Christensen – gorgeous, heartwarming read!

My Review:

The lovely locale, the community, their care
The second chances for romances, there
All make this a brilliant read for me
I hope you'll give them a try and see if you agree!

This time widow Libby Walker is the main character who
Is determined to make a life for herself anew.
She never anticipated her daughter and granddaughter coming to stay
But after her husband left she just had to get away.

To complete his best friend's dying wishes Adam comes to stay
Planning to scatter their ashes in the sea one day.
The friend grew up in Bellbird Bay but never returned
And doing so next is what he yearned.

To people coping with a loved one dying
Facing life living on, or at least trying.
Can they help each other to heal -
And face what for the other they feel?

A heartwarming read filled with family and friends
All hoping everything happily ends.
New relationships, new starts and new chances
Could they become second romances?

I am really enjoying every visit I make to Bellbird Bay
It is now one of my favourite series, I have to say!
For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
It's a gorgeous, heartwarming read and this is my honest review.

Synopsis:

Libby Walker never imagined she’d be moving into the dream house she and her husband had purchased for their retirement as a widow. Intent on making a new life for herself in the quiet coastal town of Bellbird Bay, Libby’s life is upended by an unexpected call from her daughter.

Adam Holland’s unhappy childhood and broken home has left him scarred. Content with the life he has built for himself as a journalist and author of political thrillers, Adam arrives in Bellbird Bay to fulfil the deathbed request of an old friend.

When Libby and Adam meet, there is an initial attraction. But Libby is grieving for her late husband and trying to help her daughter sort out her life, and Adam has no intention of forming a relationship, wary of commitment because of how his family was torn apart.

Will the peace and tranquillity of Bellbird Bay help these two move on from old hurts and make this a Christmas to remember, or will events conspire to keep them apart?

A heartwarming tale of family, friends, and how a second chance at love can happen when you least expect it.

Author Bio – 

After a career in education, Maggie Christensen began writing contemporary women’s fiction portraying mature women facing life-changing situations, and historical fiction set in her native Scotland. Her travels inspire her writing, be it her trips to visit family in Scotland, in Oregon, USA or her home on Queensland’s beautiful Sunshine Coast. Maggie writes of mature heroines coming to terms with changes in their lives and the heroes worthy of them. Maggie has been called the queen of mature age fiction and her writing has been described by one reviewer as like a nice warm cup of tea. It is warm, nourishing, comforting and embracing.


From the small town in Scotland where she grew up, Maggie was lured to Australia by the call to ‘Come and teach in the sun’. Once there, she worked as a primary school teacher, university lecturer and in educational management. Now living with her husband of over thirty years on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, she loves walking on the deserted beach in the early mornings and having coffee by the river on weekends. Her days are spent surrounded by books, either reading or writing them – her idea of heaven!
