Snowflakes on Silver Cove by Holly Martin

Libby Joseph is famous for her romantic Christmas stories. Every December, readers devour her books of falling in love against the magical backdrop of the Christmas season. If only Libby believed in the magic herself…

Struggling to finish her current novel, Libby turns to her best friend and neighbour George Donaldson to cheer her up. But George also needs a bit of support himself. Nervous about getting back into the dating saddle after splitting from his wife, he and Libby strike a deal. She will teach George how to win over the ladies, and Libby will in turn be inspired to inject her novel with a good dose of romance.

As Libby and George explore the beautiful White Cliff Bay on a series of romantic Christmas-themed dates, Libby finds herself having more fun than she’s had in ages and…discovers feelings that she never knew she had for George.

But is it too late? Will George win someone else’s heart or can Libby act like the heroine in one of her stories and reach for her own love under the mistletoe this Christmas?

Snuggle up with a piece of Christmas cake and mulled wine, and spend the festive season at White Cliff Bay. You won’t want to leave! Christmas at Lilac Cottage also out now see our review here.

My Review

Libby Joseph is an author of romance novels who never stays in one place for very long and even though she loves White Cliff Bay she has plans to move to New York to research her new novel. Although she doesn't normally make friends she has built a very strong relationship with her now best friend George and they know everything there is to know about each other, they walk into each other's flats without knocking and have a lovely friendship. 

When a beautiful new neighbour called Giselle moves into one of the flats Libby decides to help George to ask her out on a date but because he is so nervous she agrees to go on some practice dates with him first. She is a little taken aback by how much she enjoys the dates and begins to realise she has feelings for him just as he is asked out on a date by a stunning redhead, 

Libby had almost been persuaded to stick around even just for friends sake as she had made a couple of girlfriends too, Amy and Kat had started to really mean a lot to her, Amy was in love with her boss Seb but he had promised his mother in law that he would never go with anyone else after his beloved wife died and while his mother in Law, Judith, was beginning to accept that he needed to find love she could not accept Amy whom she hated.

However when Libby sees George asking Giselle out on a date she decides to leave after all and books her flight for Christmas day.

George doesn't have long to persuade her to stay and he is a bit of a disaster area where Libby is concerned but will his lovingly planned dates persuade her to stay?

This is a hilarious series of unfortunate events which inevitably leads to a sweet Christmas love story. Some of the things that happen had me laughing out loud and only managed to make George even more endearing to Libby. I especially loved the little cross over events to Christmas at Lilac Cottage and can safely say that Holly has managed to create the perfect place to spend a snowy Christmas.  

Thanks to Bookouture and netgalley for the advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.

Holly Martin
Holly lives in sunny Bedfordshire in a house with round windows. She studied media at university which led to a very glitzy career as a hotel receptionist followed by a even more glamorous two years working in a bank. The moment that one of her colleagues received the much coveted carriage clock for fifteen years' service was the moment when she knew she had to escape. She quit her job and returned to university to train to be a teacher. Three years later, she emerged wide eyed and terrified that she now had responsibility for the development of thirty young minds. She taught for four years and then escaped the classroom to teach history workshops, dressing up as a Viking one day and an Egyptian High Priestess the next. But the long journeys around the UK and many hours sat on the M25 gave her a lot of time to plan out her stories and she now writes full time, doing what she loves.

Holly has been writing for 6 years. She was shortlisted for the New Talent Award at the Festival of Romance. Her short story won the Sunlounger competition and was published in the Sunlounger anthology. She won the Carina Valentine's competition at the Festival of Romance 2013 with her novel The Guestbook.
