An Enjoyable Seasonal Story
on 19 September 2014
Evie is determined to share the perfect experience of an idyllic, traditional Cornish Christmas with her boyfriend, Ed. Well-planned from within her Beach Café in Carrawen Bay; sentiment is still running high from the loss of Jo. Things could only get better, surely? Her plans suddenly go awry. A broken toe is nothing compared to her realisation of the scheming, bitchy ex-wife of Ed, Melissa, messing up the Christmas ideal, aided by the emotional blackmail of their daughter Violet. Ed insists Melissa means nothing to him, yet Evie is uncomfortable. With Ed's brother Jake suddenly on the scene, things begin to alter as Melissa's name keeps cropping up. Evie tries to keep her cool especially when her heart-broken friend, Amber, turns up as the glories and troubles of the story continue.
A fabulous follow-up to 'The Beach Cafe'. There is a genuine Christmas feel to this book with the good and not-so happy moments that take the reader to an ending that may be predictable but leaves the Christmas feel-good factor. A novella that is short and sweet, well-written and an easy read with no doubt more to come.
