ABOUT THIS BOOK
After a frosty welcome, things soon heat up at Wynter House.
Neva Grey is looking forward to spending a quiet Christmas with her family in the cosy cottage they’ve rented in the picture-postcard village of Wyntersleap. Nestled between rolling hills and a gently burbling river, it’s going to be idyllic.
Except it’s not. Torrential rain causes the river to burst its banks and the quaint little village isn’t quite so cosy with water lapping at the doors. Add to that a power cut and a sudden blizzard and Christmas is looking bleak ... until gorgeous Adam Wynter invites them all to Wynter House.
Although not everyone is happy to share the ancestral home. Adam’s elder brother, Rafe is less than pleased. Their grandmother, Olivia extends a grudging welcome. And for Carruthers, the oddly arrogant butler, unexpected guests are a Christmas surprise he could do without. Especially one as troublesome as Neva’s eight-year-old niece.
But something’s not quite right at Wynter House. What is Rafe intent on hiding behind the locked doors of the old barn? And what really happened to his first wife? It’s a good thing Neva has a sense of humour. She’s going to need it this Christmas at Wynter House.
If ever there was a book that would get you into the festive mood, then Christmas at Wynter House by Emily Harvale is that book.
Neva Grey is entering a new phase of her life. Her best friend is getting married and moving out which leads them both to sell their flat, and with nothing tying her to the city anymore, Neva is embarking on a new career with her mobile hair and beauty service. Neva has plenty of decisions to make but that can all take a back seat until after Christmas where she is meeting up with her family in a cosy cottage in the picture-perfect village of Wyntersleap. But it isn't long before the weather makes staying in the cottage a little more dangerous than anyone had planned and the inhabitants of the village find themselves moving up to the big house on the hill where there are plenty of rumours about the brooding man of the house, Rafe, although his younger brother seems like a lot of fun. Throw in an eight-year-old obsessed with zombies, a mischievous dog, a secret hiding in the barn, and who knows what magic could happen at Wynter House? Sometimes the most unexpected things happen at the perfect moment ...
Charming and appealing from beginning to end, I fell in love with Neva and her warm-hearted family and couldn't wait to find out what was in store for them. The setting is beautiful even when the weather ruins their plans and I could easily imagine the waterfall and the cottages with perfect clarity because the author is excellent at painting a picture. Rafe seemed so guarded and defensive so it was lovely to watch him open up slowly, and this community of quirky characters certainly kept me on my toes and made me laugh along the way.
CHRISTMAS AT WYNTER HOUSE by Emily Harvale is a wonderful story that places love and family at the centre of the magic and I look forward to reading more from this author.
