Product Details (as per amazon page)

It’s happening! Angus and Ruth, Whitehorse Bay’s favourite young-at-heart couple, are tying the knot.

Lexy loves father-figure Angus and village gossip Ruth to pieces and she’s thrilled to be chief organiser of the festive extravaganza. Not that it’s an elaborate affair, but she’s got a few top-secret plans to put into practice.

Until the snow starts.

Being on the Scottish coast, snow doesn’t ordinarily last longer than a day or two. However, the flurries don’t seem to be letting up, and the village is thrown into turmoil as everyone realises there’s no way in and no way out. Lexy is stressed, the villagers are on edge, and what is up with the hush-hush tones and sneaky looks between Lexy’s fiancé and her best friend?

The wedding has been the talk of the town for months and Lexy is desperate for the big day to go ahead as planned. If everyone pitches in, perhaps all will not be lost. Plus, people get ordained online all the time, don’t they?

I spent a lovely Sunday afternoon cosied up inside with a hot drink, scented candle burning and a festive treat of a novella by Emily Anne Brandon.  It was the perfect read for a cold winter’s day and it left me chuckling, smiling and warmed my heart.

Christmas in Whitehorse Bay is our second visit to the Scottish coastal village.  I would highly recommend reading Love on the Rocks:  Summer in Whitehorse Bay prior to this novella as you will then fully appreciate the history surrounding the characters and will enjoy the full Whitehorse Bay experience.

I instantly felt reacquainted with Lexy, Jamie, Poppy, Graeme, Angus and Ruth and it was great to learn about new residents in the bay.

The story starts off with Lexy in full wedding planner mode organising Angus and Ruth’s forthcoming Christmas wedding.  Lexy is very vibrant and is buzzing with wonderful and quite frankly extravagant ideas for the couple.  But as the months fly by and December approaches the Scottish winter weather starts to become a threat for this wedding planner extraordinaire.  Excited and super organised Lexy becomes paranoid and starts to panic about her preparations.

Will the wedding take place?  Will Lexy’s carefully thought out plans come to fruition?  Why are Lexy’s two most important people in her life acting strange?

A fabulous, fun filled festive treat of a read.  Once again Emily Anne Brandon held me captive to the storyline with her great dialect including wonderful wit and humour … I could feel the characters coming to life.  I’m hoping for more from the residents of Whitehorse Bay.
