When your heart’s broken, all roads lead home…
After the end of a long-term relationship, local weather girl Bea Armstrong has been avoiding her family, and their inevitable ‘I-told-you-sos.’ But with Christmas fast approaching, she is finally on her way home to Charis House, the school in Sherwood Forest that her mum and dad run in their old family home. And to top it all off, the insufferable Henry Fairfax – who her parents have always wanted her to marry – has also been invited.
Relief comes in the shape of a last minute interview for her dream job. There are just a few minor problems… The interview is in Scotland, Bea has no car, and the snow is falling already. The only solution is for Henry to drive her – could this Christmas get any worse…
But during an unforgettable two day interview, a stay in a log cabin and a nightmare journey through the snow, Henry turns out to be nothing like she thought. And when Bea’s first love and recent ex shows up, Bea has a difficult choice to make…
Bea Armstrong’s on and off again relationship with boyfriend Adam is once again off and although she wants to avoid her family’s chimes of ‘I told you so,’ she finds herself heading back to the family home for Christmas. Once there, she also realises that her childhood nemesis, Henry, will also be joining the Armstrongs for the festive season.
When Bea is invited to a two day interview in Scotland just before Christmas, she jumps at the chance even if it means she has to share a car with Henry.
First of all, the cover for this book has to be one of my favourites. It’s beautiful. It’s just stunning.
It really didn’t take me long to get engrossed in this book. To say I devoured it would be a better description.
I’m always up for a Christmas novel and this one really built up a festive atmosphere. I read this at the end of August and felt Christmassy.by
