Tall, dark and handsome, Tom is out to have some fun. Kaisa doesn’t think she’ll ever fall in love again. But when they meet on the snow-capped Swedish Alps, sparks fly.
With his beloved mother passed, Tom is forced to leave his two teenage sons in Milan with his ex and is looking forward to an uncomplicated Christmas skiing in the Swedish Alps.
With her daughter Rosa away backpacking in the Far East, Kaisa decides to take a rare winter break over the holidays with her best friend Tuuli. Now in her late fifties, Kaisa doesn’t think she’ll ever fall in love again. But when she sees Tom after some thirty years, her heart begins to beat a little faster. Kaisa knows, however, an affair with Tom will go nowhere. Years ago, they had a disastrous date, which neither of them wishes to revisit.
Yet, on the slopes and in the apres-ski bars Tom showers Kaisa with his attentions and she finds she cannot resist his intense eyes and passionate kisses.
Can Kaisa trust this European Casanova, and her own sudden infatuation?
The Christmas Heart is a seasonal story of grown-up love set in the beautiful Swedish Alps. It’s the final book in the acclaimed Nordic Heart series, but can also be read as a stand-alone story.
I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.
I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Helena Halme’s latest instalment in The Nordic Heart series. The Christmas Heart is a grown-up festive romance beautifully told.
The Christmas Heart is a story that takes you on a scenic journey to Sweden to a white Christmas with friends and with the surprise of love at a time when you least expect it. A time in your life when you are happy within yourself but when someone from your past turns up and reminds you of your carefree youth your heart suddenly starts to feel young again.
This is the final instalment in The Nordic Heart series however, it is my first introduction to the work of Helena Halme. I soon found myself enjoying the festive landscape of Sweden and was captivated by this tale of friendship and love blossoming in the later (ish) stages of life. The story could very easily by read as a standalone and reading The Christmas Heart has given me a lovely insight into a new romance novelist. I will now certainly check out more of Helena Halme’s work.
A sensitively told festive romance that sizzled with chemistry as bright as the Christmas lights.
