Her best friend's wedding...
When Alex Munro learns that the love of her life is getting married to another girl, all she wants is to be alone - and as far away from Edinburgh as possible.
Moving to a Cornish cottage, which comes complete with the world's scruffiest dog, Alex finds that her new neighbours are determined to involve her in their madcap Christmas festivities.
Then she meets her sexy neighbour Ruan - and somehow Alex doesn't want to be alone this Christmas after all. But having lost one fiancé, Ruan has no intention of letting anyone get close to him again...
What a book!
We don't just follow Alex Munro from her home in Scotland to Cornwall with a broken heart and a head full of family deceit. We follow a tale of love, life, village life, a scruffy dog and Christmas. It is an utter joy to read. It is proper heartwarming story that needs a hot drink and a blanket to accompany it with.
I guarantee you will have a lump in your throat and a tear in your eye more than once.
