Christmas at Lilac Cottage by Holly Martin (White Cliff Bay #1)
Holly Martin quickly made it into my top favorite authors. I've been holding this book until the holidays approached to read. I was worried that my anticipation of this book would make it a bit of a let down, but I was so wrong. This is the type of book you want to curl up on the couch with in front of a fire. I found myself warmed from the inside out with this book. The characters were all so real and kept you turning the page to see what would happen next.
Book Jacket Summary:
Welcome to the charming seaside town of White Cliff Bay, where Christmas is magical and love is in the air…
Penny Meadows loves her home – a cosy cottage decorated with pretty twinkling fairy lights and stunning views over the town of White Cliff Bay. She also loves her job as an ice-carver, creating breathtaking sculptures. Yet her personal life seems frozen.
When Henry and daughter Daisy arrive at the cottage to rent the annex, Penny is determined to make them feel welcome. But while Daisy is friendly, Henry seems guarded.
As Penny gets to know Henry, she realises there is more to him than meets the eye. And the connection between them is too strong to ignore…
While the spirit of the season sprinkles its magic over the seaside town and preparations for the ice sculpting competition and Christmas eve ball are in full swing, can Penny melt the ice and allow love in her heart? And will this finally be the perfect Christmas she’s been dreaming of?
