Earlier this month, I signed up to Readers First, a new book reviewing community for the UK and Republic of Ireland. As a welcome gift, I was offered a free book from a choice of five and Christmas at Lilac Cottage by Holly Martin landed on my doormat last weekend!
Holly Martin is a new author to me so I’m looking forward to reading this. All I need now is to curl up under my duvet, with a mug of hot chocolate piled high with marshmallows, and I’m all set. I know it is only May, but as I write this, it has been raining incessantly for four hours. Please allow me this little bit of escapism 🙂

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?
Like a creamy hot chocolate with marshmallows, you won’t want to put this deliciously heartwarming novel down.
Spend the perfect Christmas in White Cliff Bay this year. Snowflakes on Silver Cove coming very soon.
