When Grace Phillips travels to Conwenna Cove to help her parents move there 30 years after their honeymoon in the village, she sees why they fell in love with the place. The festive decorations, carols in the air and constant supply of delicious mince pies certainly make it hard to leave. Grace soon meets local vet Oli Davenport and initially finds him rude, but learning about his passion for animals and how much he cares for his two kids helps Grace to see a softer side to Oli.
It’s been two years since Oli lost his wife to cancer. Though he loves eleven-year-old Amy and five-year-old Tom more than anything it’s hard to be mum and dad. He has no interest in romance until he crosses paths with beautiful and kind-hearted Grace. The sparks fly but both Oli and Grace are holding onto fear about letting someone into their heart.
As the snow falls and Christmas wishes come true can Conwenna Cove work its magic and help Grace and Oli find the happiness they both deserve?


After reading the wonderful Summer At Conwenna Cove back in May 2017 I was absolutely delighted when I was approached to hop on the book tour for the next instalment. 

Last year I read A Very Merry Manhattan Christmas by Darcie Boleyn and that one story was enough to get me hooked on her wonderful writing. This year, 2017, I'm reviewing her next Christmas read, Christmas At Conwenna Cove.

An instant pull into Christmas At Conwenna Cove is the hilarious opening chapter. I was giggling to myself in a few short minutes of starting the book. I really want to go into more detail but I won't so I don't ruin it for you. Just take my word that the book certainly has an entertaining beginning. This is something I love about Darcie's writing. There's no faffing about and taking four chapters to set the scene. Just straight in and on with the story. Brill!

The basic guideline of the story revolves around Grace helping her parents move and make a start on renovating the house. Of course there's an intriguing, and initially rude, love interest involved and there's a couple of really great kids too. Children in stories never used to appeal to me much, but since having my little Jessica it's more heartwarming and relatable to me. Amy and Tom are lovely to read about so big thumbs up to Darcie for these charming little ones.

As I said there's no hesitating in plunging straight into the plot of Christmas At Conwenna Cove, there's a lot of plot to get through so an immediate starter makes the read really smooth and ashamedly fast. Once you get started with this read it may very well get stuck to your hands. It's a superglue read. 

I was delighted with the outcome of the story and by the first few chapters I felt like I was part of the story and not just looking in. I didn't think the Conwenna Cove serial could get any better but here I am saying that I loved it!!
