Welcome to the charming seaside town of White Cliff Bay, where Christmas is magical and love is in the air…
Penny Meadows loves her home – a cosy cottage decorated with pretty twinkling fairy lights and stunning views over the town of White Cliff Bay. She also loves her job as an ice-carver, creating breathtaking sculptures. Yet her personal life seems frozen.
When Henry and daughter Daisy arrive at the cottage to rent the annex, Penny is determined to make them feel welcome. But while Daisy is friendly, Henry seems guarded.
As Penny gets to know Henry, she realises there is more to him than meets the eye. And the connection between them is too strong to ignore …
While the spirit of the season sprinkles its magic over the seaside town and preparations for the ice sculpting competition and Christmas eve ball are in full swing, can Penny melt the ice and allow love in her heart? And will this finally be the perfect Christmas she’s been dreaming of?
I absolutely love this story….everything about it from the delightful cover to the very last page. The characters are so real, so likeable and so like people I would love to know. You just have a feeling how it will end (personally that is the type of story I like) but it is at times a bumpy ride….from experimenting in the car to a chat to a teenager about porn….awkward…but we have all been there….haven’t we… lets pretend I have just to make myself appear more interesting….
I love Lilac Cottage, I love the village, I especially love Henry….have to admit to welling up a bit at the end of the “condom” scene and wondering how the relationship could come back from this…just read it and see….light the fire, whip up the hot chocolate, put on your fluffy Christmas socks and enjoy!!
Just click on image above to find it in Kindle, also available in paperback.
My Christmas was full of even stranger people than this….watch this space…
