On the beautiful coast of Cornwall lies the idyllic Salt Bay, where Christmas is the perfect time for bringing family and friends together…
Annie Trebarwith is happily settled in Salt Bay with her beloved great-aunt Alice and gorgeous boyfriend Josh Pasco. Snow is in the air, and Christmas is just around the corner.
But when the father she’s never met, aging rock god Barry, turns up with the half-sister Annie didn’t know existed, life suddenly gets complicated. Barry and Storm are soon clashing with the entire village, and their antics are even driving a wedge between Annie and Josh.
Can Annie prevent her new family ruining the festivities and repair things with Josh in time for a cosy Christmas? Or will their relationship end up as frosty as the Salt Bay air?
Annie’s Christmas by the Sea is a hilarious and heart-warming story about family, friends and the magic of Christmas, perfect for fans of Lily Graham, Holly Martin and Phillipa Ashley.
Annie’s Christmas By The Sea is the follow on from Annie’s Holiday By The Sea, as it follows on I would advise reading the books in order to get full enjoyment from the books and as they are fabulous books so why wouldn’t you want to?
It was great to catch back up with Annie and the other characters again. The setting is as wonderful as I remembered it and was instantly transported back to the village.
Annie seems to have acquired even more family in this book. Barry I’m not to sure if I was supposed to take to him so quickly, but I did. I thought he was a brilliant character and he brought even more fun to the story. Storm is your typical teenager but you just know that deep down there is lovely girl inside.
I had to feel sorry for Josh and Annie. They haven’t been together long but both have so much going on in their lives that it makes it hard for them to find time for themselves and things start to take their toll.
Annie’s Christmas By The Sea is a story very much about relationships, new and old. There is a real sense of community that you only tend to get in small places. A story that was a joy to read and perfect for the run up to Christmas.
My thanks to Bookouture and Netgalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and biased in anyway.
Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
