Product Details (as per amazon page)
Romance is the last thing on Frankie Bell’s mind as she gets ready for Christmas in the English village of Little Perran. It’s going to be a quiet affair once the annual Great Little Perran Christmas Bake Off cake competition is over, with Frankie, and her little dog Buster, tucked up warmly in Primrose Cottage. Fate, however, has other plans and Little Perran is thrown into turmoil when the film star, Roux Lockhart, comes to stay.
The spirit of the season weaves its magic and a freak snow storm that blows in a surprise visitor. Frankie discovers love from an unexpected quarter, but can she trust it? And is someone cheating with their Christmas cake?
A delightful Christmas love story to be enjoyed with a mug of hot chocolate and a roaring log fire.
I purchased and read this delightful novella back in March and realised I hadn’t shared my love for it. I enjoyed this fun, romantic, winter warmer of a read. At just less than 200 pages I soon devoured this story and was a great read to brighten up any grey day.
It is set in a sleepy village in the Cotswolds on the run up to Christmas. The latest blockbuster is being filmed on location close to the village and one of the main actors, Roux Lockhart, decides to rent a cottage in the village. He’s hoping for peace and quiet especially after breaking up from his media loving American girlfriend.
When Frankie, the local librarian bumps into Roux a friendship of sorts soon develops between them. Frankie is still upset over her broken relationship from Paul last Christmas so she is hoping for a happier time this year.
The weather has turned pretty nasty and the roads and villages are soon blocked with snow. Frankie and Roux both find themselves stranded in the snow and leave their abandoned cars and set out to find shelter.
This story follows Frankie and Roux and the rest of the villagers coping with the weather and events to the run up to Christmas.
It was a charming read set in an idyllic location with characters you soon fall in love with. It was filled with some wonderful fun, warm moments. Lynda has created a lovely setting for The Little Perran series and has introduced us to some charming sub characters in this novella that I can’t wait to hear more about in future stories. Lynda is currently working on her next Little Perran story … A Summer Romance … and will be available to download soon. 4/5*
