Many thanks to Victoria Joss and publisher Aria for my spot on this Blog Tour.

Lucy Coleman has done it again, written a book so filled with warmth amidst the biting cold of the snow that I could do nothing but follow the trails as pages turned.

Tia had lost her mother and her love for Christmas. But thanks to her boss, she had to interview couples in Holly Cove to know how they kept their romance alive. And Tia was struggling with life…

My second book by Lucy Coleman, I loved everything in this book. There were moments when I had a lump in my throat for Tia. She shared such a warm relationship with her mother. The writing showed the emotions between them, I could feel their bond.

Tia was everything I wanted in my main character. She was going through so much pain, yet she found her inner strength to deal with it. Her determination shone in the book along with her loving nature. All credit to the author for etching her.

Lucy Coleman’s strength was in her words. Every word was rightly placed. The imagery they produced transported me to the cottage and people of Holly Cove. The emotions they evoked caused me to feel everything that Tia did. The characters drafted in this plot were real and people I would want to meet.

The road of the story was not all straight. There was drama and twists, romance and friendship, all shades of life. All I was left with at the end of the read was – What a beautiful way to start my day.

I read the book over toast and tea which got done soon, but a tiny flame of hope sparked in my heart which stayed with me the whole day.

Read a Lucy Coleman when the heart is heavy. It deals with real issues but leaves a warmth behind.

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.

From interior designer to author, Linn – who also writes under the pen name of Lucy Coleman – says ‘it’s been a fantastic journey!’

Linn is the bestselling author of more than a dozen novels and is excited to be writing for both Harper Impulse (Harper Collins) and Aria Fiction (Head of Zeus); she’s represented by Sara Keane of the Keane Kataria Literary Agency.

When she’s not writing, or spending time with the family, she’s either upcycling furniture or working in the garden.

Linn won the 2013 UK Festival of Romance: Innovation in Romantic Fiction award; her novels have been short-listed in the UK’s Festival of Romance and the eFestival of Words Book Awards.

Living in Coed Duon in the Welsh Valleys with her ‘rock’, Lawrence, and gorgeous Bengal cat Ziggy, she freely admits she’s an eternal romantic.

Linn is a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association and writes feel-good, uplifting novels about life, love and relationships.

As the snowflakes start to fall, the village of Holly Cove welcomes a new tenant to the beautiful old cottage on the beach…

For lifestyle magazine journaist Tia Armstrong, relationships, as well as Christmas, have lost all their magic. Yet Tia is up against a Christmas deadline for her latest article ‘Love is, actually, all around’…

So Tia heads to Holly Cove where the restorative sea air, and rugged stranger Nic, slowly but surely start mending her broken heart.

Tia didn’t expect a white Christmas, and she certainly never dared dream that all her Chiristmas wishes might just come true…

Set in Caswell Bay on the stunningly rugged Gower Coast, the cottage nestles amid the limestone cliffs and the woodlands; the emotions run as turbulently as the wind-swept sea.
