Publisher: Aria Fiction/Head of Zeus

 

Flora Phillips has an excuse for every disaster in her life; she was abandoned as a new-born on a doorstep one cold autumn night, wrapped in nothing but a towel. Her philosophy is simple: if your mother doesn’t want you – who will?

Now a thirty-year-old, without a boyfriend, a career or home she figures she might as well tackle the biggest question of them all – who is she? So, whilst everyone else enjoys their Christmas Eve traditions, Flora escapes the masses and drives to the village of Pooley to seek a specific doorstep. Her doorstep.

But in Pooley she finds more than her life story. She finds friends, laughter, and perhaps even a love to last a lifetime. Because once you know where you come from, it’s so much easier to know where you’re going.

A story of redemption and love, romance and Christmas dreams-come-true, the perfect novel to snuggle up with this festive season.

My Review

I received this book as part of a book tour and am voluntarily reviewing it. This was a sweet story with a great plot. Flora was abandoned on a doorstep as a baby and one Christmas Eve, she decides to flee her life and try to figure out where she came from. Some of the townspeople support her search and try to help, while others are angry with her for digging up the past. One person who helps her is police officer Joel, who Flora has an unlucky encounter with her first day in town that lands her in jail. As Flora searches, she begins to question her future and what she wants to do with her life.

Each chapter changes viewpoints and by the end of the book, I would say the reader has been in about 10 different people’s heads. It wasn’t confusing, though. There was one chapter at the end of the book that I think should’ve been left off, as it took away from the reality of the story, but it’s an extremely minor complaint. I love how this book had an element of mystery to it as I tried to figure out, along with Flora, who her mother could be. It also had romance, small-town drama, family relationships, and friendships. This book was well-written and moved at a good pace, even though Flora didn’t have many clues to her origins. A great Christmas read for fans of multiple genres!

Christmas at Lilac Cottage Review and Giveaway

By Holly Martin

Genre: Romance, Christmas, Chick Lit

I was given a copy of this book and am voluntarily reviewing it. 3.5 out of 5 chickadees singing! Main character Penny is an ice sculptor in the tiny town of Cliff Bay. She realizes she has become a bit of a hermit living on a hill away from town and decides to rent out part of her home to Daisy and Henry, who she found through an agency. Things are not off to a great start when Penny assumes that Daisy is Henry’s wife when she is actually his daughter. She can’t understand why she has such an attraction to a married man and why he seems to be flirting with her as well.

Eventually, Henry and Penny can’t deny their pull toward each other. Penny has been burned in the past, though, and she’s afraid of being hurt again. Henry has a bit of a playboy past and doesn’t want to do anything that would put his relationship with his daughter in jeopardy, like what happened with his last girlfriend.

I liked the cozy little, although nosey, town of Cliff Bay. I thought that Penny had a fascinating job I enjoyed reading about. I liked that all three main characters- Henry, Penny, and Daisy- were complex with complicated histories and back stories that continued to affect them today. That was very realistic and relatable. I’m not usually a fan of straight romance, but there were other subplots going on that helped keep my interest. For example, Penny confronts someone from her past that she thinks played a role in hurting her and Henry has to deal with a complicated situation at his workplace. There were also a few absolutely hilarious (although very awkward- this is definitely an adult book!) moments in the book that cracked me up! I loved seeing the relationship between Penny and Daisy grow.

This was a sweet, light Christmas story. I would definitely recommend it for fans of romance. The characters are interesting and it keeps your attention the whole time with a good pace.

Good news, readers! I have three paperback copies of this book to give away! The giveaway ends on Christmas! Enter below! *US residents only
