Summary

The sparkling Christmas novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author Heidi Swain!

When Paige turns up unannounced at Wynthorpe Hall, she discovers the place she knew when she was growing up has changed beyond all recognition. She’s only planning to stay for a short time, but is quickly pulled into local life.

One night while driving home after delivering library books and shopping to residents she stumbles across an isolated cottage and meets Albert, its elderly and rather grumpy owner. She quickly realises there’s more to Albert than meets the eye and the same can be said for the other man she can’t seem to help running into, handsome but brooding Brodie.

All three of them have a secret and a desire to hide away from the world, but with Christmas on the horizon, is that really the best way to celebrate the season?

Seriously.. so boring!

I don’t get it. It starts with way too many characters being introduced very quickly. And nothing really happens. So so disappointing. Had to force myself to finish it.

Easy listen but very predictable

the story started out well and it was a pleasant ending but not a nail biting story line.

Always a pleasure

Heidi's books just make Christmas. They are full of Christmas cheer and never fail to warm you up. The characters feel real after meeting them so many times. A seasonal reminder of all that is good in the world.

Disappointingly dull

I don't expect much from a romantic Christmassy novel, if anything I love their predictability. However, I found this one boring. Cups of tea and plain sailing all the way with the protagonist repeatedly exclaiming, "Oh Albert," or "Oh Brody" worst of all it didn't feel festive. Gutted as I was looking forward to it given the positive reviews
