About the Author
Growing up in locations like Botswana and Venezuela gave me quite the taste for adventure and my love for romances began when my mother shoved one into my hands in a desperate attempt to keep me quiet during TV coverage of the Wimbledon tennis finals!
When I wasn't consuming books by the bucketload, I could be found pretending to be a damsel in distress or running around solving mysteries and writing down my adventures. As a teenager, I wrote countless episodes of TV detective dramas so the hero and heroine would end up together every week. As an adult, I worked in a library to conveniently continue consuming books by the bucketload, until realising I was destined to write contemporary romance and romantic suspense myself. I live in leafy Surrey in the UK, a book-devouring, slightly melodramatic, romance-writing sassy heroine with my very own sexy hero husband! You can visit my website at: http://www.evedevon.com/

This time it's new resident Emma Danes who has arrived at the village to help with the opening of the clock house. Upon arrival, she meets Jake Knightley and it's not exactly a warm welcome from the surly gardener. It seems all the villagers are tiptoeing around Jake, who seems to be getting even grumpier the closer Christmas gets.
Jake has plenty of reason to want out of the village for Christmas, but Emma, who seems to be a friend to all makes it difficult for him to escape. Or is it the chandelier to blame?
I chuckled throughout the entire book! Eve Devon seems to get better and better and that's saying something considering I've enjoyed everything she's written. This book has everything. A brilliant plot, characters to fall in love with, emotion, and most of all - heart. I absolutely love Whispers Wood and the author's skill puts you right there, dumped in the snow, fully immersed in the goings on in the village. If you are a fan of Jill Shalvis, this is the series for you. It reminds me so much of The Lucky Harbor series. Christmas at the Little Clock House on the Green is full of tender moments, sweetness and so much humour! The added references are so funny. Some old and so very current you'd think the author had penned it today, if not for the obvious brilliance which shows that a lot of hard work went into making this your Christmas read of 2017!
Funny, enchanting and utterly brilliant!
I presume that Emma is a new character as we get told all about her but I simply couldn't connect with the character or feel that she was anything more than a bunch of words on a page. I did appreciate that just because she was an aspiring actress she wasn't all supreme self-confidence but did have doubts and insecurities; I just couldn't get a sense of a real person inhabiting the page. As for the people already at The Clock House they didn't have any personality and honestly, what grown woman goes WAAAAH! at regular intervals - it would seem that Kate and, I think she was called Jemma but I really can't be bothered to check - do.
The Christmassy setting with the tree lighting ceremony, variety show staged by the residents of the village and the group Christmas meal were charming and I even quite enjoyed the parts with Jake and his garden. Unfortunately, these are a tiny bit of the book and this made it a hard slog to get to the end.
The writing is loose and sloppy in places and jumps all over the place. Although each chapter is supposed to be about the perspective from one particular person none of them really move the story on so the middle 50% stagnates and feels like complete and utter filler. In my personal opinion this is a 100 page novella fleshed out to a full length book and done so very unsuccessfully.
