With a beautiful house on Lovelace Lane, brilliant jobs and a great marriage, Carl and Sally Turnbull have the perfect life. Or they had. Until fate threw a rather large stumbling block in their way. With their relationship tested to the limit, Sally decides they need a break – from one another – for three whole months, which includes the festive period. But with a new man suddenly appearing in Sally’s life, Carl finding himself increasingly attracted to another woman, plus all the stress of Christmas, will the break prove temporary? Or will they both be kissing someone else under the mistletoe?
Who wouldn’t want to live in Lovelace Lane?
This is the fourth book in this series of stand-alone reads, and I must confess the first I have read – but not the last.
Carl Turnbull finds himself with the prospect of spending Christmas alone in Mulberry Cottage after his wife Sally left to ‘give them some space’. He is miserable, lonely and everywhere he looks is reminded of his beautiful wife. Not able to face keeping up their usual annual traditions, his surroundings are most un-Christmassy. All he wants is Sally back home where she belongs, but when he spots her with another man that seems like the impossible dream . . .
This is a lovely tale, and Alice Ross is fast becoming a firm favourite of mine. Great writing with a nice, easy style and a few hiccups and laughter along the way, this is just the thing to get you in the mood for the festivities. And who wouldn’t want to live in Lovelace Lane?
My sincere thanks to the author for offering me a copy of this novel which I have enjoyed so much and have no hesitation in recommending to everyone who enjoys a great Christmas story.
