Thank you for stopping by I'm thrilled to be sharing my review for Snowflakes over Holly Cove by Lucy Coleman as part of the blog tour today! First of all though let's take a look at the description for the book...
As the snowflakes start to fall, Holly Cove welcomes a new tenant to the beautiful old cottage on the beach...
For lifestyle magazine journalist Tia Armstrong, relationships, as well as Christmas, have lost all their magic. Yet Tia is up against a Christmas deadline for her latest article 'Love is, actually, all around...'
So, Tia heads to Holly Cove where the restorative sea air and rugged stranger, Nic, slowly but surely start mending her broken heart.
Tia didn't expect a white Christmas, and she certainly never dared dream that all her Christmas wishes might just come true...
Set in Caswell Bay on the stunningly beautiful Gower Coast, the cottage nestles amid the limestone cliffs and the woodlands, where the emotions run as turbulently as the wind-swept sea.
As cosy as a marshmallow-topped mug of cocoa, fall in love with a heart-warming festive story from the bestselling author of The French Adventure.
Well what can I say other than this book was such a delight to read, this is definitely a story with real warmth! There are beautiful descriptions and a setting that was amazing and instantly made me wish I could visit. In this book we meet Tia who is writing an article for the lifestyle magazine she works at and ends up in Holly Cove. Tia is still a little fragile in her personal life and my heart went out to her, I just hoped that everything would work out for her.
Everything in this story just seemed to click and work so well from the setting to the characters and I easily became attached to them. I loved meeting the characters who lived in Holly Cove and I couldn't wait to find out more about them.
This book begs to be read whilst drinking a hot chocolate and curled up with a blanket. Although there is such a gorgeous heartwarming feel that those are just lovely extras to have while reading. There were beautiful heartfelt moments but also moments that left me smiling too and for me this was such a perfect combination. With themes of loss and grief which gave a wonderful depth but balancing out with a sense of hope too.
Snowflakes over Holly Cove is a beautifully written story with an uplifting and romantic touch!
