Thank you to Rachel of Rachel’s Random Resources and Avon Books for the invitation to join the blog tour and a digital proof copy via NetGalley to review. I’ve read and reviewed a number of Sue’s books and I enjoyed returning to Middledip. The book was published on the 28th October.
Christmas. A time for family, friends – and rekindling old flames…
When Laurel returns to the village of Middledip, she’s looking for a quiet life. Adjusting to her recent divorce, she’s ready to spend some time getting back on her feet amidst the glorious snow-dusted countryside.
Yet, life in Middledip is far from straightforward. Coming to the aid of her sister, Rea, as she navigates her own troubles, Laurel barely has a moment to think about where her own life is going.
However, time stands still when she sees her old flame, Grady Cassidy – and it’s soon as if they’ve never been apart. But through her happiness, Laurel remembers why she left the village all those years ago, as she recalls a dark night and Grady’s once-wayward brother, Mac…
Can Laurel learn to forgive and forget? Or will her chances of Christmas under the mistletoe with Grady remain a dream?
An enchanting, festive read, perfect for fans of Sarah Morgan and Carole Matthews.
I’m pleased to confirm that this is another enjoyable festive book by Sue Moorcroft set in Middledip. Laurel left the area years ago but a number of circumstances have conspired together to return her to help her sister and niece in the run up to Christmas.
As Laurel arrives, she almost drives into her ex and his brother, both of whom she was hoping to avoid. However, it would appear to be difficult to avoid bumping into them, which means Laurel has to face up to the events that drove her away years ago.
I enjoyed the stories of the past and the present, as Laurel, Grady, Mac and Rea all faced up to their challenges. There is also a good mix of funny moments too, and a large sprinkle of festive cheer. Happy to recommend this festive book, to be enjoyed with a mug of hot chocolate.
