As the snowflakes start to fall, Holly Cove welcomes a new tenant to the beautiful old cottage on the beach…
For lifestyle magazine journalist Tia Armstrong, relationships, as well as Christmas, have lost all their magic. Yet Tia is up against a Christmas deadline for her latest article ‘Love is, actually, allaround…’
So, Tia heads to Holly Cove where the restorative sea air and rugged stranger, Nic, slowly but surely start mending her broken heart.
Tia didn’t expect a white Christmas, and she certainly never dared dream that all her Christmas wishes might just come true…
Set in Caswell Bay on the stunningly beautiful Gower Coast, the cottage nestles amid the limestone cliffs and the woodlands, where the emotions run as turbulently as the wind-swept sea.
As cosy as a marshmallow-topped mug of cocoa, fall in love with a heart-warming festive story from the bestselling author of The French Adventure.
I’d firstly like to thank Rachel’s Random Resources and Lucy Coleman for including me in this blog tour.
This is an absolutely gorgeous read and just what i needed after a few hectic weeks at work, total chill out!
As always with Lucy’s books the characters are full of warmth and are very believable. Although this is a cosy read be prepared to need lots of tissues. As well as the heart warming aspects of the book there is also a very true to life thread that runs throughout. Personally i really enjoy this as it brings a real touch of reality to the story and you definitely experience the highs and lows of Tia’s life.
Max, an older man who lives on the beach is a wonderful character who’s background slowly comes to light through out the story. A character such as Max, for me is a delight to discover within the pages of a novel. I found myself trying to figure out his background and how he got to where he was.
Lucy has created Caswell Bay and Holly Cove so beautifully that they feel very real, you can imagine the surroundings as if you have actually visited the places.
Snowflakes Over Holly Cove is a festive delight that will have you wanting to put your Christmas tree up and cuddle up with a steaming mug of hot chocolate!
