Christmas is a time for family and friends, miracles and magic, falling snow and roaring fires, fun, laughter and festive feasts. In Snowflake Cove, it’s also a time for secrets to be revealed…
Evie Starr is hoping for more than a sprinkling of magic this Christmas. The family-run Snowflake Inn is virtually empty and the Starr’s financial future isn’t looking bright. But Evie’s gran, Jessie has a secret that might help.
Enigmatic, Zachary Thorn is every woman’s dream. He’s also ex-SAS, so his secrets are classified. The Christmas Special of his feel-good, TV show is set in Michaelmas Bay – until a phone call means he’s spending Christmas in nearby Snowflake Cove.
Evie’s best friend, Juniper thinks boyfriend Darren has a secret. Evie knows he does. And Evie’s niece, Raven is hiding feelings for Juniper’s brother – who has a secret crush of his own. But the biggest secret in Snowflake Cove is the identity of Raven’s dad.
With snow falling thick and fast and secrets being revealed one after another, will everyone be snuggling up by the fire on Christmas Eve, or are some secrets best kept hidden…?
A Sparkling Read with a good sprinkling of magic!
This is a radiant read with a brilliant cover! I’m delighted that this is first in series – I usually come to a series much later, and will be looking out for Emily Harvale’s future novels and especially the next one in Michaelmas Bay.
Evie Starr’s family owns and runs Snowflake Inn on a small isle attached to Snowflake Cove and reached only on foot over a small bridge. Possibly because of this idyllic location the family finances aren’t very healthy but then they hear there is a chance they could get a mention on Zachary Thorn’s very popular tv show – and so the possibilities seem endless.
With an extended family and friends each with their own problems, Evie has much to worry about and when she receives a phone call from a very snooty woman booking a chunk of rooms her list goes from busy to overflowing. Will all the guests be like the woman on the phone? Will the Starr family’s cosy Christmas with plentiful home-made food please these fussy guests? And will she be able to secure a mention on the tv show and raise the inn’s profile?
This is a sparkling read with a good healthy sprinkling of magic. The writing is fantastic .. the use of names and words connected to Christmas all adds to the glowing feeling that this novel generates. It is such a happy book and I cannot wait to grab the sequel when it’s released. I reckon I’m in the Christmas mood far earlier than usual and I credit that to all the fabulous festive books being released this year and this one earns it’s place among the very best of them. I’m so pleased to recommend this as a wonderful Christmas read.
My thanks to Emily Harvale and Rachel’s Random Resources for this arc in exchange for my honest, original and unbiased review.
