Snow-Kissed Proposals is a gorgeous two-for-one festive feast of a read from authors Jenni Fletcher and Elisabeth Hobbes.
THE CHRISTMAS RUNAWAY – I adored this novella by Jenni Fletcher it has put me in a cosy mood reminiscent of sitting by the fire with a hot drink and a good book.
Fiona wasn’t happy with her father, how dare he consider marrying again and to a woman 18 years his junior? Feeling so off kilter with this news Fiona, with the help of her maid, head to the hills of Aberdeenshire to visit her old school friend Mhairi. Aberdeenshire is not like her beloved city of Edinburgh, it’s wild and vast and now that she’s left the warmth of the train and making the rest of the journey on foot Fiona is feeling cold, miserable and lost. Bumping into a very unkempt looking stranger Fiona is now wishing she ignored her stubborn ways and stayed with her maid at the station.
The Christmas Runaway is a fine example of a Victorian romance, perfect to escape with. I loved witnessing the blossoming friendship between our leading lady and gentleman and seeing how their personalities developed with each other.
You will marvel with the bleakness of the setting with it’s rugged landscape and it’s wild, unpredictable weathers. The romance will surprise you, just like the characters and bring warmth to your heart.
THIER SNOWBOUND REUNION – Another thoroughly enjoyable Victorian romance brought to you by author Elisabeth Hobbes and is set in the rural landscape of the Peak District in Derbyshire.
Amy and Anthony were childhood sweethearts and were destined to be together always but alas it wasn’t to be and they went their separate ways.
15 years later Amy accepts the position of Housekeeper at a house that once belonged to her old sweethearts Aunt. Many years have passed since Amy and Anthony saw each other and their lives have changed considerably but this first love hasn’t left each others hearts and they were both left wondering why it had to end so abruptly.
I adored the setting of this festive read, a beautiful house in the Derbyshire countryside. It sounded so idyllic but also quirky with it’s unusual artefacts.
Meeting each other again brought back so many emotions, questions and fond memories. I could feel the tension between the pair when they are reunited. I also felt the profound loss they had to endure and it was sad to hear that other influences had thwarted a beautiful friendship.
A nostalgic, beautiful, festive, feel-good read.
