Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…
A few weeks before Christmas and a sudden blanketing of snow has closed the roads and brought public transport grinding to a halt, stranding Izzy miles from home and in desperate need of rescuing.
That doesn’t mean she’s looking to bump into Rob and spend a cosy weekend holed up in his swanky flat watching London become a winter wonderland! Because Izzy and Rob have history…
Six months ago, they were standing in the vestry of a beautiful country church, while best man Rob delivered the news that every bride dreads on their big day.
But at the time of year when anything is possible, can Rob and Izzy let go of the past and let Christmas work its magic? Or will this be one holiday wish that Izzy lets walk right out of her life…
Winner of the Carina UK #WriteChristmas competition
I give it - 5/5
My review - This was a great festive treat!
In this story we follow Izzy, six months ago she was waiting to get married when the groom decided to back out last minute. Fast forward the six months and Izzy has thrown herself in to her work when she bumps into Rob. Rob was the best man at her wedding and he was the one who delivered the bad news and Izzy hasn't forgiven him. However they now have to spend quite a bit of time together and it is quite clear that there might be a little bit more between them.
I loved Robs family. Especially Mike and Jenny! I really enjoyed when I got to read about certain scenes with them, their family was very loving, warm and caring.
This book is mainly about family and friendship, with a bit of romance, which I really enjoyed! All the characters where very enjoyable and just the whole story was fantastic.
It was very beautifully written and had me gripped from the very beginning and it didn't let me go until the end and even then I didn't want the story to be over! It is very clear how Maxine won the #WriteChristmas comp from Carina as this is such a brilliant winter book that I think everyone would enjoy!
About the author
Maxine Morrey has wanted to be a writer for as long as she can remember and wrote her first (very short) book for school when she was ten. Coming in first she won a handful of book tokens – perfect for a young bookworm!
As years went by, she continued to write, but ‘normal’ work often got in the way. Finally, she really decided to go for it, and wrote. Really wrote. And after a while she had a bunch of articles, and a non fiction book to her name. But her real love is writing novels and the magical escapism it affords – for both writer and reader. After self publishing her first novel when a contract fell through as the publishers succumbed to the recession, she continued to look for opportunities.
In August 2015, she won Carina UK’s #WriteChristmas competition. Her first romantic comedy, Winter’s Fairytale, is out on the 10th of November and is available for preorder now!
Maxine lives in Sussex, England with her husband and when not wrangling with words, can be found adding to her To Be Read pile, sewing, walking and wondering when they are going to invent a robot for ironing.
