Love is in the air and the festive season is just around the corner at the seaside town of Muddleford.

Nellie is happily settled in her gorgeous clifftop home. Her favourite evenings are those spent at her beach hut, cozying up under a blanket with her fiancé.

But she can’t help feeling that there’s still something missing.

When Nellie meets Esme, a mysterious visitor to Muddleford, the pair of them come up with a plan to raise money for the local animal shelter, leading to the grand finale – a Christmas Ball.

But Esme’s keeping a secret about Nellie’s past that promises to throw her whole world upside down.

Will this be Nellie’s perfect Christmas for the first time in forever? Or will it turn into her worst nightmare – one that she’ll never forget?

Sometimes you have to go back to go forward.

My Review

This is book #2 in the Muddleford Cove series, it can however be read as a standalone book.  It’s a lovely, heart-warming book where we return to Muddleford Cove and back to Nellie Wagstaff’s story.  Nellie is still with vet, Jack and she has a busy life filled with helping out at the local animal sanctuary and being part of the seaside town’s WI group.  However, when she meets Esme, a newcomer to the town, Nellie finds her life being turned upside down.

This was such a delightful read!  I’ve read the first book in the series, and loved Nellie and Jack in that story, so it was lovely to be back with them in Muddleford Cove!  Nellie is such a likeable character and I loved being part of her life again!  I have laughed my way through this story, particularly at Nellie’s best friend, Shivani.  Shivani is so funny that I couldn’t help but smile every time she appeared, and she kept me chuckling as I turned the pages.  Her flirting with dishy vicar, Kenny did leave me a little green-eyed though as surely Kenny was all mine!  The other characters in the book are all so likeable and it was such fun meeting them all.  I really liked Esme, and whilst I guessed where her storyline was going, it was wonderful to follow her journey.

The storyline wasn’t all just fun and laughs though, it was also filled with lots of emotional and tender moments.  Nellie is desperate to be a mum and this certainly tugged at my heartstrings, although the author dealt with this sensitively. There are also other family dramas as the book moves on, which had me so engrossed it kept me reading through the night!  This book was an absolute delight to read, and it is the perfect story to read at this time of year!  The little seaside town of Muddleford Cove sounds so picturesque and despite the snow and ice where I was, as I read, I could just imagine myself sitting by the beach hut with a cup of tea (or maybe a sneaky G&T!), watching the world go by and having a laugh with my besties– the ideal escapism!!

Fabulously festive and filled with love, laughs, friends and families, this is a wonderfully realistic and easy to read story.  All about second chances, forgiveness and new beginnings, this book will have you hooked from the very first page!  Would definitely recommend!
