"Run away to the little beach café this Christmas ...
Five years ago at Christmas, solicitor Justin Sadler made the decision to leave his comfortable existence behind and move to the coast. Since then, he’s tried his best to ignore the festive season and, as he sits in the little beach café and reflects on that fateful night when his life was turned upside down, he expects his fifth Christmas alone to be no different to any of the others since he made his escape.
But when he encounters a mystery woman on the beach, he soon realises he may have found a fellow runaway and kindred spirit. Could Justin finally be ready to move on and let Christmas into his life again?"
I think we're all looking forward to Christmas 2020 coming and this book definitely got me into the Christmas spirit!
Justin doesn't like Christmas (and he's got a pretty good reason for that!) whereas Sylvie is Christmas-mad; will Sylvie be able to reignite Christmas joy in Justin (and something else at the same time)? Throw into the mix a meddling mother and a villain step-brother and the ride for Justin and Sylvie won't be smooth!
This isn't just a romance; there's also a crime / mystery element to this story which sets it aside from the standard Christmas romance!
I really enjoyed the book and I was a bit sad when it ended. I'd love to read more about where Justin and Sylvie end up. I was so engrossed in the story that I got a bit of a shock when it ended, sooner than I had hoped as it left me wanting more!
I believe this is book 5 in the Borteen Secrets series; I haven't read any of the previous ones and didn't feel like anything was missing. However, I'll definitely be looking out for Borteen Secrets books in the future!
