When Grace Phillips travels to Conwenna Cove to help her parents move there 30 years after their honeymoon in the village, she sees why they fell in love with the place. The festive decorations, carols in the air and constant supply of delicious mince pies certainly make it hard to leave. Grace soon meets local vet Oli Davenport and initially finds him rude, but learning about his passion for animals and how much he cares for his two kids helps Grace to see a softer side to Oli.
It’s been two years since Oli lost his wife to cancer. Though he loves eleven-year-old Amy and five-year-old Tom more than anything it’s hard to be mum and dad. He has no interest in romance until he crosses paths with beautiful and kind-hearted Grace. The sparks fly but both Oli and Grace are holding onto fear about letting someone into their heart.
As the snow falls and Christmas wishes come true can Conwenna Cove work its magic and help Grace and Oli find the happiness they both deserve?
Ah now there’s a thing, a book with strands of personal truth as I too spent my honeymoon in Cornwall, not 30 years ago, only 25.
Ms Boleyn’s support of greyhound rescue dogs is well known and I just love the way she’s been able to weave this into the storyline. A widower, a writer, a magical place that embodies all the best parts of Christmas and lots and lots of animals. Quod erat demonstrandum…
Thank you, NetGalley for the ARC, this review is mine though – you can’t have it.
