Snowflakes on Silver Cove by Holly Martin
Struggling to finish her current novel, Libby turns to her best friend and neighbour George Donaldson to cheer her up. But George also needs a bit of support himself. Nervous about getting back into the dating saddle after splitting from his wife, he and Libby strike a deal. She will teach George how to win over the ladies, and Libby will in turn be inspired to inject her novel with a good dose of romance.
As Libby and George explore the beautiful White Cliff Bay on a series of romantic Christmas-themed dates, Libby finds herself having more fun than she’s had in ages and…discovers feelings that she never knew she had for George.
But is it too late? Will George win someone else’s heart or can Libby act like the heroine in one of her stories and reach for her own love under the mistletoe this Christmas?
Snuggle up with a piece of Christmas cake and mulled wine, and spend the festive season at White Cliff Bay. You won’t want to leave! Christmas at Lilac Cottage also out now.
I started reading this as soon as I put down Christmas at Lilac Cottage, and finished reading it on Christmas Eve. Living in the tropical north of Australia, I didn't read this while snuggled in front of a hot fire (though it would be perfect for that), but imagining all that snow did help me to cool down while sprawled out under the airconditioner in the midst of a tropical storm.
I love Holly's writing style and I'm working my way through her novels. I enjoyed seeing glimpses of the characters from Lilac Cottage in this novel. I particularly enjoyed the main romance plot between Libby and George, the best friend to boyfriend. The side story of Amy and Seb was great too. I loved seeing each of these characters grow throughout the novel and gain the strength to overcome their insecurities. And of course, I loved the giant willy reference ;) Who doesn't giggle at the thought of a seven foot willy chasing you down the street for a hug!
I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
