Review: Snowflakes on Silver Cove by Holly Martin

Snowflakes on Silver CoveThe Blurb

Come and spend a picture perfect romantic Christmas at White Cliff Bay

Libby Joseph is famous for her romantic Christmas stories. Every December, readers devour her books of falling in love against the magical backdrop of the Christmas season. If only Libby believed in the magic herself…

Struggling to finish her current novel, Libby turns to her best friend and neighbour George Donaldson to cheer her up. But George also needs a bit of support himself. Nervous about getting back into the dating saddle after splitting from his wife, he and Libby strike a deal. She will teach George how to win over the ladies, and Libby will in turn be inspired to inject her novel with a good dose of romance.

As Libby and George explore the beautiful White Cliff Bay on a series of romantic Christmas-themed dates, Libby finds herself having more fun than she’s had in ages and…discovers feelings that she never knew she had for George.

But is it too late? Will George win someone else’s heart or can Libby act like the heroine in one of her stories and reach for her own love under the mistletoe this Christmas?

Snuggle up with a piece of Christmas cake and mulled wine, and spend the festive season at White Cliff Bay. You won’t want to leave! Christmas at Lilac Cottage is also out now.

The Review

Last week on LisaTalksAbout I reviewed Holly Martin’s Christmas at Lilac Cottage and was blown away; I haven’t stopped recommending it since. This week I picked up the next book in the series Snowflakes on Silver Cove and I was convinced that I wasn’t going to love it as much as I loved Christmas at Lilac Cottage. Boy, was I wrong. If anything, I loved Snowflakes on Silver Cove more.

The story focuses on the friendship between Libby and George, neighbours by chance but friends by mutual respect and affection. Libby isn’t one to settle down in one place. She lives a rather nomadic existence. Travelling to come up with new locations for the romance novels that she writes; however, George is a bit of a home bird and because he has been desperately in love with Libby since she moved in, he is hoping that this will be the time that she settles down and puts down some roots.

Libby is one of those lovely, selfless characters who you can’t help but love and George is just so gorgeously hapless and this book did have me screaming “kiss him/her you fool” because you genuinely yearn for them to fall in love. This has got to be Holly Martin’s superpower. She makes you ache for her protagonists.

Snowflakes on Silver Cove is a joyous read filled with mixed messages and almost Shakespearean misunderstanding. It is funny, heart-warming and a perfect antidote for anyone who is not yet feeling in the Christmas spirit.

In all honesty, I think I have found one of my new favourite authors.

Snowflakes on Silver Cove by Holly Martin is available now.
