She’s snowed in with the family. The only problem? They’re not her family.
A family gathering
This Christmas the Miller siblings have one goal – to avoid their family’s well-meaning questions. Ross, Alice and Clemmie have secrets that they don’t intend to share, and they are relying on each other to deflect attention.
An uninvited guest
Lucy Clarke is facing a Christmas alone, and the prospect of losing her job – unless she can win a major piece of business from Ross Miller. She’ll deliver her proposal to his family home in the Scottish Highlands and then leave. After all, she wouldn’t want to intrude on the Miller’s perfect family Christmas.
A Christmas to remember
When Lucy appears on the Miller’s snow-covered doorstep, she is mistaken for Ross’s girlfriend. But by the time the confusion is cleared up, a storm has hit and Lucy is stuck. As everyone settles in for a snowed-in Christmas, tensions bubble to the surface and suddenly Lucy finds herself facing a big family fallout with a family that isn’t hers…
My reading experience:
First I would like to thank the author, publisher and Netgalley for my free ARC.
This is the loveliest story – the tale of Lucy, the young lonely woman working her damndest, with no family, stumbling into a chocolate box Christmas that belongs to another family, namely Ross Miller’s family.
Everything in this story is designed to warm your heart – the dysfunctional large family who find each other’s truths again, the childhood would-be sweetheart, the girl with no family brought to tears by baking shortbread, and mostly, the copious amounts of snow. Of course there is not just shortbread, there is a bounty of Christmas goods enough to bring on everlasting hygge.
My advice, read this book if you want or are in need of warmth, inner joy, magic and comfort.
