A heartwarming, festive, feel-good romance!
One twinkling winter’s night, Ruby wakes her sleeping children and escapes for a new life in the countryside. It’s a choice that will change her life beyond all recognition…..
Arriving at the cosy little rental cottages as the first snow begins to fall, Ruby doesn’t regret leaving her bully of a husband for a moment, but she does feel guilty about uprooting her kids so close to Christmas. She can only wish that one day soon her son Jem will forgive her.
It’s not long before the family are settled in and drinking hot chocolate by the first, the flames kept roaring by a neighbouring woodsman called Angus. As big as a tree, but as gentle as a dormouse, all Ruby’s instincts tell her to be wary of letting this gorgeous strangers get too close. Is that the first tingle of festive magic Ruby can feel? Or might it even be hope?
As Christmas Day approaches and a blizzard sparks a power cut across the entire village, Ruby must force herself to believe in Christmas miracles again. Was she right to put her trust in Angus? With only a flickering candle to guide her through the darkness, will she ever find her way back to the light?
Oooooohhhhhh…..I literally loved this book!
This is number 4 in a series but can be read as a stand alone. I’ve not read the other books yet but now literally can’t wait to (I just hope they’re as good as this one!).
The story is heartwarming and festive, and has really got me in the mood for Christmas!! It is set in an idyllic setting (of which I’d quite like to live!) and follows a number of characters. I have to say they are all really likeable (I especially loved Angus) and would love for them to be my friends!! They all seem like such a lovely bunch of people and it makes you wish people were this nice in real life! It’s so lovely to watch everyone building and growing relationships.
I felt a range of emotions reading this, from fear to excitement and everything in between! It really makes you want to keep reading to see if there really is a happy ending.
If you want a heartwarming, uplifting, feel good festive romance then this is definitely the book for you. Due to be published on 26th October 2018.
