The perfect book to snuggle up with this Christmas.

Christmas is a time for family and friends, miracles and magic, falling snow and roaring fires, fun, laughter and festive feasts. In Snowflake Cove, it’s also a time for secrets to be revealed...

Evie Starr is hoping for more than a sprinkling of magic this Christmas. The family-run Snowflake Inn is virtually empty and the Starr’s financial future isn’t looking bright. But Evie’s gran, Jessie has a secret that might help.

Enigmatic, Zachary Thorn is every woman’s dream. He’s also ex-SAS, so his secrets are classified. The Christmas Special of his feel-good, TV show is set in Michaelmas Bay – until a phone call means he’s spending Christmas in nearby Snowflake Cove.

Evie’s best friend, Juniper thinks boyfriend Darren has a secret. Evie knows he does. And Evie’s niece, Raven is hiding feelings for Juniper’s brother - who has a secret crush of his own. But the biggest secret in Snowflake Cove is the identity of Raven’s dad.

With snow falling thick and fast and secrets being revealed one after another, will everyone be snuggling up by the fire on Christmas Eve, or are some secrets best kept hidden...?

My overwhelming initial reaction to having finished this book is to crave more, I need more Michaelmas Bay and I definitely need more from the Starr and Thorne families.  I was enjoying the book so much that I really didn't want it to end. 

There is what could be considered an overwhelming amount of characters in this story but once you work out who is who and how they are related, it just adds to the fun of the book - with so many sub plots and secrets everywhere.  Although Evie is the focal point you learn loads about her friends, family and business too. 

The Starr family run The Snowflake Inn, on Snowflake Isle off Snowflake Cove - yes the setting is that picturesque and aptly named - and they have an unexpectedly large booking from Zachary Thorn's team who are making a Christmas special in the bay. 

I loved all the characters in this book and they really are what made the story special. It is another fabulous book from Emily Harvale, I love the writing style, the sense of humour and just how vivid some of the scenes were.  This is a gem of a book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. 

Thank you to Emily Harvale for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
