In gorgeous Hopley Village twinkly lights are going up, snow is falling and the delicious smell of gingerbread is in the air. Will two broken hearts find their happily-ever-after this Christmas?Thirty-year-old Holly Hanwell's life is almost perfect - she loves her cosy little house in Hopley Village with its yellow front door and cute window seat, and adores teaching at the village school. Although she's secretly nursing heartache after her ex-boyfriend dropped the bombshell news he was leaving her to have a baby with someone else. Now the most wonderful time of year is approaching but Holly doesn't really feel like celebrating... Until she bumps into Edward, the handsome but troubled-looking single father of her newest pupil. He's moved to Christmas House, at the edge of pretty Hopley, to give his eight-year-old daughter Eliza a fresh start after his wife abandoned them three years go. Sheltering from the snowy weather in the warm village café, they bond over delicious mugs of hot chocolate, topped with cream and sprinkles.Despite the attraction between them, Holly knows she needs to protect her already fragile heart and she's determined NOT to fall in love this Christmas. But holiday magic works in mysterious ways and Holly and Edward's paths seem to cross more frequently - present shopping, the annual carol service and the children's nativity show. Just as Holly realises her feelings are growing for kind but complicated Edward she discovers a secret from his past which makes her question everything she thought she knew. Can Holly trust Edward? And will their December romance be over before it's begun? Or will this be a Christmas to remember?Curl up with this magical, feel-good Christmas read!
