Libby Joseph is famous for her romantic Christmas stories. Every December, readers devour her books of falling in love against the magical backdrop of the Christmas season. If only Libby believed in the magic herself…
Struggling to finish her current novel, Libby turns to her best friend and neighbour George Donaldson to cheer her up. But George also needs a bit of support himself. Nervous about getting back into the dating saddle after splitting from his wife, he and Libby strike a deal. She will teach George how to win over the ladies, and Libby will in turn be inspired to inject her novel with a good dose of romance.
As Libby and George explore the beautiful White Cliff Bay on a series of romantic Christmas-themed dates, Libby finds herself having more fun than she’s had in ages and…discovers feelings that she never knew she had for George.
But is it too late? Will George win someone else’s heart or can Libby act like the heroine in one of her stories and reach for her own love under the mistletoe this Christmas?
Snuggle up with a piece of Christmas cake and mulled wine, and spend the festive season at White Cliff Bay. You won’t want to leave!
Thank you to Holly for letting me take part in this tour. I adore all of Holly’s books so when she asked if I would take part there was no way I was going to say no.
This book is set in the week running up to Christmas. If you don’t already know Christmas is my absolute favourite time of year. I love everything about it from the decorations to the music to thinking about the perfect gifts.
Libby moved into the flat opposite George 6 months ago. In this short time they had become the very best of friends but George had not only found a friend in Libby but also someone he could love.
George had been lacking in confidence since his marriage broke up. George is the sweetest guy in the world and he would do just about anything to make Libby happy. From the moment he met her he fell in love.
Libby has been moving around for so many years that she has forgot what it’s like to stand still. She has never stayed in one place for more than a few months. She tells herself its to research her books. To really throw herself into the setting to write as best as she can but really I think she was scared. Scared she would end up the same as her mum so she never made any meaningful relationships.
I really loved Libby and George. I loved the 12 days of presents, it is such a sweet idea. I loved the 12th present it was so adorable.
I also really loved Seb and Amy’s story. I wasn’t expecting to see so much of it from the blurb but it was a lovely surprise. They are two characters that really needed something good in their lives. I also really liked Kat and Big Dave too.
This book was everything I hoped for and so much more. I have heard on the twitter grapevine that Holly is writing a 3rd book set in White Cliff and I cannot wait to read it and any more of her books.
