Libby Joseph is famous for her romantic Christmas stories. Every December, readers devour her books of falling in love against the magical backdrop of the Christmas season. If only Libby believed in the magic herself…
Struggling to finish her current novel, Libby turns to her best friend and neighbour George Donaldson to cheer her up. But George also needs a bit of support himself. Nervous about getting back into the dating saddle after splitting from his wife, he and Libby strike a deal. She will teach George how to win over the ladies, and Libby will in turn be inspired to inject her novel with a good dose of romance.
As Libby and George explore the beautiful White Cliff Bay on a series of romantic Christmas-themed dates, Libby finds herself having more fun than she’s had in ages and…discovers feelings that she never knew she had for George.
But is it too late? Will George win someone else’s heart or can Libby act like the heroine in one of her stories and reach for her own love under the mistletoe this Christmas?
Snuggle up with a piece of Christmas cake and mulled wine, and spend the festive season at White Cliff Bay. You won’t want to leave! Christmas at Lilac Cottage also out now.
It's no secret that I'm a big fan of Holly Martin's books. Everything she has written I have absolutely loved. So yes, you might assume I'm biased in my opinions, but really this just means that my expectations are extremely high and Holly simply meets them every single time. And with Snowflakes on Silver Cove, she may have just written my favourite book of hers yet!
Sexy, broody men with a tough guy attitude make the perfect book boyfriends. But Libby - the main character - said it herself: it's the sweet and caring guys we actually fall for. And George is just that kind of guy. He's a dream.
I don't think I've ever came across a more perfect fit in a book than Libby and George. With any romantic novel you know who will end up together and the couples nearly always make sense, but Libby and George... they just fit. Perfect match!
As always Holly delighted us with a wonderful main character. Libby is fun, cute, caring, smart,... and an author! Definitely a woman you'd want as your (best) friend. But this goes for nearly all the characters that live in White Cliff Bay - some of whom we already met in Christmas At Lilac Cottage. They make for the perfect friends and a dream 'village community'.
I could go on and on, but let's just say that Snowflakes on Silver Cove is a wonderful, heartwarming, funny and romantic Christmas novel. It made me both laugh and cry, and Google over-the-top Christmas decorations and sweaters ;-)
