My latest book review is another Christmas tale – Winter’s Fairytale by Maxine Morrey.
Let it snow, let it snow, let is snow…
A few weeks before Christmas and a sudden blanketing of snow has closed the roads and brought public transport grinding to a halt, stranding Izzy miles from home and in desperate need of rescuing.
That doesn’t mean she’s looking to bump into Rob and spend a cosy weekend holed up in his swanky flat watching London become a winter wonderland! Because Izzy and Rob have history…
Six months ago, they were standing in the vestry of a beautiful country church, while best man Rob delivered the news that every bride dreads on their big day.
But at the time of year when anything is possible, can Rob and Izzy let go of the past and let Christmas work its magic? Or will this be one holiday wish that Izzy lets walk right out of her life…
I have had Winter’s Fairytale sat on my Kindle for a while now, and after reading Second Chance at the Ranch (review coming in January, keep your eyes peeled!) I felt the need to read more of Maxine Morrey’s work. I was looking for a light-hearted Christmas tale, and that is exactly what she has delivered with this novel.
Izzy has had a rough few months, going through something that no bride should ever have to go through: being left at the altar.
Rob is the best man who had to deliver the devastating news that Izzy’s fiancé would not be joining her on their wedding day. Izzy has therefore spent six months avoiding him, wanting no reminders of that fateful day. Fate, however, has others ideas! A snow storm and no way of getting home forces Izzy into Robs swanky London flat for the weekend, making her face both him and her past.
Set during a particularly romantic time of year, Winter’s Fairytale is a story about ensuring you don’t allow your past to define you; that you look forward rather than back, and that love can be found in the most unexpected of places. Of course, being stranded with a handsome, kind man in a snowstorm does help!
I am definitely happy to recommend this novel; if you are looking for a novel full of family, romance and Christmas then this definitely the novel for you. Grab a copy, a glass of wine and sit by your Christmas tree. Enjoy!
