Ever since I was lucky enough to meet Sue at a book signing a couple of years ago, I always jump at the chance to read her latest release and this one does not disappoint.
Set in the village of Middledip where everyone knows eachothers business, I loved this book from the first few pages when we first meet Laurel. Laurel has returned to the village she grew up in to help her sister and early on I loved the importance placed on both the relationship with her sister and overcoming trauma.
This is a story with lots of different scenarios playing out for many characters that have massive impacts on their lives and I loved spending time with them all and getting to know them as they found ways to move forward and old friendships were resurrected.
Another superb festive read that I love, I have my own teenage artistic daughter called Daisy and that added so much to the story for me and just made me love it even more.
I am already excited for the next release by this fab author as her books always hit the spot.
Christmas. A time for family, friends – and rekindling old flames…
When Laurel returns to the village of Middledip, she’s looking for a quiet life. Adjusting to her recent divorce, she’s ready to spend some time getting back on her feet amidst the glorious snow-dusted countryside.
Yet, life in Middledip is far from straightforward. Coming to the aid of her sister, Rea, as she navigates her own troubles, Laurel barely has a moment to think about where her own life is going.
However, time stands still when she sees her old flame, Grady Cassidy – and it’s soon as if they’ve never been apart. But through her happiness, Laurel remembers why she left the village all those years ago, as she recalls a dark night and Grady’s once-wayward brother, Mac…
Can Laurel learn to forgive and forget? Or will her chances of Christmas under the mistletoe with Grady remain a dream?
An enchanting, festive read, perfect for fans of Sarah Morgan and Carole Matthews.
