Her best friend’s wedding…

When Alex Munro learns that the love of her life is getting married to another girl, all she wants is to be alone – and as far away from Edinburgh as possible.

Moving to a Cornish cottage, which comes complete with the world’s scruffiest dog, Alex finds that her new neighbours are determined to involve her in their madcap Christmas festivities.

Then she meets her sexy neighbour Ruan – and somehow Alex doesn’t want to be alone this Christmas after all. But having lost one fiancé, Ruan has no intention of letting anyone get close to him again…

I was wondering through Asda last Christmas time and I saw this book and instantly knew I had to have it. The cover drew me in instantly with its snowy christmassy feel and after reading the blurb I put it in my trolley without a second thought.

Alex Munro has been in love with her best friend for as long as she can remember but when he tells her he’s marrying his current girlfriend she decides to flee the country. Moving from Edinburgh to Cornwall is exactly what Alex needs, to move to a place where no one knows her and she can wallow all alone.

However when she moves in Alex finds she has the company of the scruffiest but most adorable dog who has decided her bed is in fact his bed.

Not long after she gets settled she meets the gorgeous Ruan. Ruan however is closed off. He lost someone long ago and vowed never to open his heart to that kind of pain ever again. However fate has a way of pushing these two together.

I adored this story and Scarlett is an excellent writer who is known for her christmas filled books. I can’t wait to read another one or two this christmas.
