Step inside a beautiful winter wonderland where love, laughter and cosy nights by the fire will make this Christmas one to remember.
Neve Whitaker loves managing the Stardust Lake hotel. She gets to work alongside her wonderful family and she’s spending Christmas on the most enchanting, snow-covered island in Scotland. So why is her heart so heavy this festive season?
It might have something to do with the gorgeous actor Oakley Rey, the man she finished with before he left for California and the man she loves more than anything. With Oakley’s career in Hollywood soaring, Neve is convinced she’d only hold him back. She had to end it with him – at least that’s what she keeps telling herself.
But now she has a secret she’s struggling to keep, and when Oakley arrives on Juniper Island determined to win her back, Neve is thrown off balance. Will Neve’s fear of having her heart broken again push Oakley away for good, or is it time for her to take a leap of faith?
Get swept away by this deliciously sweet and heartwarming tale, and spend an unforgettable Christmas on Juniper Island.
Thank you to Holly for asking me to be part of this tour. I am a huge fan of Holly’s work and there’s nothing more exciting for me than a Christmas book by Holly.
This is the second book set on Juniper Island but both books can be read as a standalone.
This book is centred on Neve and Oakley but also includes the stories of Adam, Ivy, Luke and Audrey.
Neve and Oakley recently broke up before he went to Hollywood to shoot his dream movie. Neve thought that she was holding him back and decided that she should let him go. Oakely arrives on Juniper Island with the plan of winning her back. It is clear to the outsider that these two are made for each other. Neve is a fiery, no nonsense kinda girl. She doesn’t take any crap from anyone. Oakely is a big shot actor who only has eyes for one.
Adam had agreed to a 3 month secondment to Stardust Hotel on Juniper Island. After working his way up at a top London Hotel, Adam has been assistant manager for many years. The move to Juniper was exactly what he needed, but there was much more going on than he expected. After a busy morning on his first few days Ivy Storm goes missing. It’s the last thing Adam needs with everything else he needs to be getting on with.
Luke and Audrey have been mooning over each other for months and the whole island is waiting for them to get together but can Luke trust Audrey after everything he’s been through?
This book has everything you need for the perfect Christmas read. It’s got the drama, it’s got lots of festive spirit and most importantly it’s got the romance.
