Summary

A feel-good listen from your favourite storyteller Cathy Bramley.

Two strangers. One big secret. And a Christmas to remember...

Merry has always wanted a family to spend Christmas with, and this year her dream comes true as she says 'I do' to father-of-two Cole. But as she juggles her rapidly-growing business, wedding planning and the two new children in her life, her dream begins to unravel.

Emily is desperately waiting for the New Year to begin, so she can finally have a fresh start. She has always put her family first, leaving little time for happiness and love. When her beloved father Ray moves into a residential home, she discovers a photograph in his belongings that has the potential to change everything.

As past secrets come to light, will this be a magical Christmas for Emily and Merry to remember?

It’s beginning toLook a lot like ………

Ok so this is a book that is a bit Christmassy. However the story is much more than just another Christmas novel.
This is a story that touches many different areas of love life and so on. I can’t say to much more without giving hints. However I am giving it 10/10 another great Novel by Cathy Thank you.
Now quit reading reviews and buy it.

Lovely story. Beautifully told. Loved the chat at the end. I wonder if there is going to be a following story? The letter at the end made me sad. How will it ever get to the person who needs it ?!!!!

Merrily ever after.

A really lovely book with twists and turns beautifully read by Joanne. The characters are very likeable and the coming together of the different strands very well done. In truth-I could have listened to much more about them-but as this is book 2 in the series maybe that will happen in Book3! I would recommend anyone to listen to it. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Dull

So saccharine sweet I could have murdered the lot of them. Only finished it because the Bluetooth in the car wouldn’t let me get rid. But I do appreciate that some people like safe reads so it may suit, Joanna Froggatt was disappointing with several mispronunciations. Do the producers ever correct anything?
