Christmas at Lilac Cottage By Holly Martin


Book Description:

Welcome to the charming seaside town of White Cliff Bay, where Christmas is magical and love is in the air…

Penny Meadows loves her home – a cosy cottage decorated with pretty twinkling fairy lights and stunning views over the town of White Cliff Bay. She also loves her job as an ice-carver, creating breathtaking sculptures. Yet her personal life seems frozen.

When Henry and daughter Daisy arrive at the cottage to rent the annex, Penny is determined to make them feel welcome. But while Daisy is friendly, Henry seems guarded.

As Penny gets to know Henry, she realises there is more to him than meets the eye. And the connection between them is too strong to ignore…

While the spirit of the season sprinkles its magic over the seaside town and preparations for the ice sculpting competition and Christmas eve ball are in full swing, can Penny melt the ice and allow love in her heart? And will this finally be the perfect Christmas she’s been dreaming of?

Like a creamy hot chocolate with marshmallows, you won’t want to put this deliciously heartwarming novel down.

Spend the perfect Christmas in White Cliff Bay this year. Snowflakes on Silver Cove coming very soon.

My Thoughts:

I loved everything about this book, the gorgeous cover, the storyline, the characters, just literally everything about it.

I usually get annoyed seeing Christmas adverts and signs when we are still a few months away from the actual big day but reading Christmas at Lilac Cottage really got me into the spirit of things.

I really wish the author had not made the cottage and the surrounding settings sound so idyllic as I was very close to getting straight on the phone to the estate agents and putting my house on the market so that I could go in search of my little piece of heaven.

As it says in the book description, Christmas at Lilac Cottage is a heart warming novel. From the very start it’s obvious as soon as Penny and Henry meet that romance is very much on the cards. As usual though nothing in the literary world runs smoothly and Penny and Henry certainly have a few hic ups along the way.

Penny has a pretty cool job as an ice carver and is one of those women who is beautiful on the inside and out though as usual can’t see it for herself. Henry, a wood carver, a tall and handsome man himself certainly can’t help but notice what a wonderful person Penny is and it isn’t long before Penny melts his hardened exterior.

This is a wonderful novel which is quite humorous in parts and makes you feel all warm and gooey inside and will certainly have you looking forward to one of the most magical days of the year.

Many thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
