When Laurel returns to the village of Middledip, she’s looking for a quiet life. Adjusting to her recent divorce, she’s ready to spend some time getting back on her feet amidst the glorious snow-dusted countryside.
Yet, life in Middledip is far from straightforward. Coming to the aid of her sister, Rea, as she navigates her own troubles, Laurel barely has a moment to think about where her own life is going.
However, time stands still when she sees her old flame, Grady Cassidy – and it’s soon as if they’ve never been apart. But through her happiness, Laurel remembers why she left the village all those years ago, as she recalls a dark night and Grady’s once-wayward brother, Mac…
Can Laurel learn to forgive and forget? Or will her chances of Christmas under the mistletoe with Grady remain a dream?
This was such a fun and festive read, that got me in the festive mood for Christmas. It is about Laurel and what happens when she returns to Middledip, she has had quite a lot going on and she is looking for a bit of peace and quiet. Fat chance of that what with her sister who has her own problems and also an old flame to contend with, will Laurel ever get back on her feet and find her peace and quiet. I liked how the story flowed throughout, I feel as though Laurel and her sister Rea both have relatable problems in their life so people will be able to relate to them. I absolutely loved the last few chapters, it made me feel warm and cosy thinking about settling down with friends and family and being at peace with each other. Such a perfect Christmas read to snuggle down with.
