ABOUT THIS BOOK
When Jess Rigby lost her dad, the family coped in different ways, alone in their grief. Now, her mum seems to be going off the rails and her sister, Isla, who moved to France, is now back and determined to get the old family home on the market. But the last thing Jess wants this Christmas is for renovations to start on the house. It's sure to stir up old memories she's desperate to forget.
And to make things worse, Isla seems to have hired the most obnoxious builder in the world to do the work. Jess could ignore the fact that women seem to be putty in his hands. But what she finds harder to ignore is the frisson she gets every time she squeezes past him in the mess that is now their beloved family home!
Soon, the house begins to give up its secrets, some of them shocking. Can the family finally start talking and find a way to move on from the past this Christmas?
A story that is both heartbreaking and heartwarming, SNOWFLAKES OVER MOONDANCE COTTAGE by Rosie Green is sure to captivate you from beginning to end.
Jess is dealing with a lot after the loss of her dad and worrying about her mother so the last thing she needs is her sister arriving back from France looking for their family home to be redecorated and put up for sale. But unfortunately, that is the situation that Jess finds herself in. Not only does Jess have to deal with all of her emotions as they begin to go through all of their dad's belongings, but she has to deal with a handsome but very irritating builder who is getting right up her nose. And as the renovation continues, unexpected revelations begin to come to the surface, and as Jess and her family try to wade through their grief, will the possibility of love shine a little light into her sadness?
This book is definitely a tear-jerker but you will find plenty of reasons to smile too. Loss and grief are very sensitively and realistically handled, and watching Jess and her family deal with everything really broke my heart. The characters are well-rounded and while it did take me a while to like Isla, I instantly connected with Jess and wanted her to feel a little magic of the festive season.
SNOWFLAKES OVER MOONDANCE COTTAGE by Rosie Green is an emotional story about family and losing your way, and I cannot wait to read more from Rosie Green.
Rosie has been scribbling stories ever since she was little.
Back then, they were rip-roaring adventure tales with a young heroine in perilous danger of falling off a cliff or being tied up by 'the baddies'.
Thankfully, Rosie has moved on somewhat, and now much prefers to write romantic comedies that melt your heart and make you smile, with really not much perilous danger involved at all - unless you count the heroine losing her heart in love.
Rosie's brand new series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe. The latest, 'Bonfires & Hot Chocolate at the Little Duck Pond Cafe', is out now.
Watch out for 'A Winter Wedding at the Little Duck Pond Cafe', which will be published Christmas 2019.
