Snowflakes on Silver Cove (White Cliff Bay #2) by Holly Martin


From Goodreads

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.

My thoughts

My thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this story in exchange for an honest review.

After having read the first in the White Cliff Bay series ~ Christmas at Lilac Cove, which I quite liked I was pleased to see a second in the series available to read via NetGalley. I couldn't help but grab a copy now could I?

I have to admit that after having read this one that I really liked it as opposed to quite liking it. I was more than happy to give it 4 stars or 8/10. I found this a much better and more engaging story.

Predominantly the story is about Libby a romance writer and her friend George, BUT there are some great secondary characters too. As Libby attempts to help George become reacquainted with the dating scene due to being a little rusty. Her coaching techniques work so well that instead of encouraging him into falling for someone else, she finds that she is falling a little in love with him. As Libby watches life unravel around her as George goes on a series of dates with other women will she ever get her man?

The story flowed well, I loved watching the relationships between the characters develop as the story progressed. It was a great way to spend a few hours in their company. Looking forward to reading the next one in this series. Whilst, some of the characters from the first in this series are in the second book it can be read as a standalone very easily. Why wouldn't you want to read Christmas at Lilac Cottage though
