A sparkling Christmas read from the Sunday Times bestseller – perfect to snuggle up with this winter!
Hannah and Nico are meant to be together.
But fate is keeping them apart…
As soon as Hannah bumps into her brother Rob’s best friend Nico in Stockholm, the two rekindle a fast friendship. But Hannah has a boyfriend – and Nico has two children to look after.
When Hannah loses her beloved shop in Stockholm, though, she is forced to move back to the little village of Middledip – only to find Nico has just moved in too.
Under the same snowy sky, can the childhood friends make a romance work – or are there too many obstacles standing in their way?
A heartwarming story of love, friendship, and Christmas magic, perfect for fans of Trisha Ashley and Jill Mansell.
A Delightful Entertaining Read!
Another marvellous read from Sue Moorcroft, introducing me to a different country and a great set of characters!
Hannah has relocated to Sweden where she has her own shop; that’s where her brother’s childhood friend Nico finds her. They keep bumping into each other but romance can’t be on the cards – Hannah has a boyfriend and Nico has two children to care for. Then things change for Hannah. With the loss of her business she moves back home to Middledip only to discover that Nico has relocated too – and to the very same village!
Reading one of this author’s novels is like embarking on a trip. There are so many fabulous details and it didn’t take me long to get right into the story. The characters are wonderfully created and totally believable; the story is realistic yet magical and there is humour sprinkled throughout. The children just added to the all-over sparkle and everything about this one is delightful. A great read for any time of year but especially enjoyable pre-Christmas. Always a writer worth reading and earning all 4.5 stars.
My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
