A heart warming, feel good romantic comedy.
‘I absolutely adored this book. It gave me all the feels! A charming read full of warmth and heart.’ ***** Kim the Bookworm
Bea Winters is in desperate need of a fresh start. Being bullied at work is not her idea of fun and she longs to follow her dream of becoming a published author. When an advert appears in her local paper to work in a publishing house in the sleepy village of Bloomsdale, it sounds too good to be true.
She strikes up an instant friendship with gorgeous aspiring author, Eddie Richards and her dashing millionaire boss Scott Summers
But all isn’t as it seems in the sleepy village of Bloomsdale.
How does the local clairvoyant know her name? Who does the little black dog that keeps appearing belong to and why does she keep bumping into the mysterious Charlie?
As she starts to unravel the truth, it seems that everyone in Bea’s life is keeping secrets.
An uplifting romantic comedy that will warm your heart – perfect for fans of Cathy Bramley, Milly Johnson and Carole Matthews.
This is warm, comfort read which despite its title is not a Christmas novel but a romance following Bea Winters as she embarks on a new life. Many scenes are set on the canal on the canal reminding me of many holidays on a barge growing up. These memories and the delightful plot made me enjoy reading this gentle novel.
Bea is an aspiring writer and takes a leap of faith to move to Bloomsdale in Yorkshire after a serendipitous meeting. She discovers there is more to the village and characters than she imagined. It has a slight supernatural edge kept me guessing and involved in the story as secrets were revealed.
Would I recommend?
Yes. It is an upbeat, warming novel ideal for for a sunny day or to escape the stresses of life. I am looking forward to reading more of her books.
