When Grace Phillips travels to Conwenna Cove to help her parents move there 30 years after their honeymoon in the village, she sees why they fell in love with the place. The festive decorations, carols in the air and constant supply of delicious mince pies certainly make it hard to leave. Grace soon meets local vet Oli Davenport and initially finds him rude, but learning about his passion for animals and how much he cares for his two kids helps Grace to see a softer side to Oli.
It’s been two years since Oli lost his wife to cancer. Though he loves eleven-year-old Amy and five-year-old Tom more than anything it’s hard to be mum and dad. He has no interest in romance until he crosses paths with beautiful and kind-hearted Grace. The sparks fly but both Oli and Grace are holding onto fear about letting someone into their heart.
As the snow falls and Christmas wishes come true can Conwenna Cove work its magic and help Grace and Oli find the happiness they both deserve?
The Perfect Christmas Read!
I’ve been looking forward to reading Christmas at Conwenna Cove – I really enjoy Darcie Boleyn’s books and I don’t say this lightly, but this is the perfect Christmas read.
I’ve shed tears over this novel, not something I do routinely but this one has everything .. setting, occasion, realistic characters, families, children, romance, great food and a hint of sadness teamed with a great story and wonderful writing. My tears have been both happy and sad, and this is not a story I will forget easily. It is a class above, without a doubt .. and yes, I share my name with a character – not something which happens every day!
If you want a festive read to get you in the holiday mood, you can’t go wrong with this one. It gets a full five glittering, pulsating stars from me and earns each and every one.
With grateful thanks to Canelo who approved my arc via NetGalley in exchange for my honest, original and unbiased review.
