‘Climbing out the window in her dress and tiara wasn’t exactly how Frankie imagined her wedding day…’
Runaway bride Frankie Ashford hops a plane to Norway with one goal in mind - find her estranged mother and make peace with the past. But when a slip on the ice in Oslo lands her directly in Jonas Thorsen’s viking-strong arms, her single-minded focus drifts away in the winter winds.
When it comes to romance Jonas knows that anything he and Frankie share has an expiration date - the British heiress has a life to return to in London that’s a world away from his own. But family is everything to Jonas and, as the one man who can help Frankie find the answers she’s seeking, he’ll do whatever it takes to help her reunite with her mother.
Now, as Christmas draws closer and the northern lights work their magic Frankie and Jonas will have to make a choice...play it safe or risk heartbreak to take a chance on love.
I'm going to start straight away by saying that I loved this book! Darcie Boleyn creates the most balanced, loveable and beautiful stories that always make me smile. As soon as I saw the title of this book I was so happy! It's my dream to see the Northern Lights and I'm determined to do it one day but for the time being I will have to experience them through books. So the addition of the Northern Lights just made this book all the more magical for me. I was well and truly whisked away to Norway!
In this story we follow Frankie who decides to try to sort out her very complicated family situation and in the process meets Jonas. Think Chris Hemsworth as Thor and you can begin to imagine Jonas, I think I was halfway in love myself. This all created a wonderful emotional connection as you have a little bit of family drama along with a beautiful romance. Frankie goes on quite a journey and I loved seeing her blossom as she faces her past.
Now that the weather is starting to get colder I couldn't think of anything better than curling up with this book, you really are in for a charming and loveable treat.
With Love at the Northern Lights you get an uplifting, romantic and beautiful story. Just perfect!
Five stars from me!

Darcie Boleyn has a huge heart and is a real softy. She never fails to cry at books and movies, whether the ending is happy or not. Darcie is in possession of an overactive imagination that often keeps her awake at night. Her childhood dream was to become a Jedi but she hasn’t yet found suitable transport to take her to a galaxy far, far away. She also has reservations about how she’d look in a gold bikini, as she rather enjoys red wine, cheese and loves anything with ginger or cherries in it – especially chocolate. Darcie fell in love in New York, got married in the snow, rescues uncoordinated greyhounds and can usually be found reading or typing away on her laptop.
