For Maisie Samson, this Christmas is going to be different. After years working in a busy Cornish pub, she’s moved back to quiet Gull Island where she grew up, to help her parents run the family inn.
But even though she can’t wait for the festive season to arrive, Maisie cannot shake the memories of what happened to her last Christmas – the day she lost everything. She keeps herself busy, setting up the tree and hanging mistletoe ready for her first proper family Christmas in years.
Until a new arrival to the island walks into her bar and changes everything. Australian backpacker Patrick is looking for a job for the low season. When Maisie takes him on, she doesn’t expect him to last the week, but to her surprise Patrick is the perfect fit. Charming and handsome, could Maisie allow herself to hope that she and Patrick could be more than just colleagues?
As Christmas approaches, Maisie finds herself dreading the spring, when Patrick is due to leave. With the help of a little Christmas magic, can Maisie get the happily ever after she always dreamed of?
This is the first book in this series and you are in for a real treat. The Cornish setting sounds wonderful and you can really feel the community spirit. Maisie the main character has had heartbreak so moves back to the island where she grew up to help her mum and dad run the pub that they own. The last thing she is thinking about is love and then walks in a cute Australian guy and her life will never be the same again. I love the fact that through the heart ache of what happened in her past, Maisie comes back stronger than ever and there is happiness for her.
