Many thanks to Noelle Holten, Sarah, and publisher Bookouture for my spot on this Blog Tour.

This was quite a contemplative read which had me pondering over relationships and the complexities that surround it.

Meg and her mother Sally had both left their husbands on the same day, due to reasons unknown. They went to a cottage on the Cornish coast to heal from their pain. They needed to think about their next step. During this entire process, they got to understand each other better and learn a few things from people who entered their lives.

Short precise chapters written with emotions by author Karen King made this a quick read. But this was an impactful story. The plot revolved around the intricacies of relationships and gave a different perspective. Told in dual POV, I got to know both the mother and daughter’s lives.

I loved both of them, but I understood the mother’s need to break free after years of sacrifices and looking aster family with no time to herself. I wanted her to fly. Meg’s pain was also authentic. The reason for her break up kept the suspense going as everything was revealed only at the end.

Other characters entered the women’s lives, and they added a layer to this story. They made things clearer to the two women. The warmth and caring from the people in the village was uplifting. I liked the depth of the author’s writing, it was quite reflective, set in fictional setting.

Some parts felt slow and repetitive, but the story resonated with me as I have gone through bad breakups. I liked the hope that the story left me with at the end. Overall, an enlightening happy read, I would say.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

I can see my mother is calling me. I answer the phone, knowing I’ll have to tell her about Oliver and me breaking up. But before I can, she announces, ‘I don’t exactly know how to tell you this… But I’m leaving your dad.’

Single together for the first time, 34-year-old Meg and her warm-hearted, long-suffering mother Sally are cancelling Christmas, and running away to a tiny cottage on the Cornish coast. For Meg, it is the perfect place to heal, away from all the mistletoe, while for her mother it has a special, and secret, place in her heart – from a love story that seems a lifetime ago…

Meg and Sally find they’re getting to know themselves, and each other, better than ever before. But as they are unable to resist getting involved in the village Christmas celebrations, they encounter two handsome local strangers.

Sometimes, it’s being away from home that helps you realise where your heart is. What neither woman knows is that, by the time the new year rolls around, one woman will have fallen in love with her husband all over again, and one marriage will be over for good…
