Snowflakes on Silver Cove (White Cliff Bay #2) by Holly Martin
Book Blurb: Libby Joseph is famous for her romantic Christmas stories. Every December, readers devour her books of falling in love against the magical backdrop of the Christmas season. If only Libby believed in the magic herself…
Struggling to finish her current novel, Libby turns to her best friend and neighbour George Donaldson to cheer her up. But George also needs a bit of support himself. Nervous about getting back into the dating saddle after splitting from his wife, he and Libby strike a deal. She will teach George how to win over the ladies, and Libby will in turn be inspired to inject her novel with a good dose of romance.
As Libby and George explore the beautiful White Cliff Bay on a series of romantic Christmas-themed dates, Libby finds herself having more fun than she’s had in ages and…discovers feelings that she never knew she had for George.
But is it too late? Will George win someone else’s heart or can Libby act like the heroine in one of her stories and reach for her own love under the mistletoe this Christmas?
Snuggle up with a piece of Christmas cake and mulled wine, and spend the festive season at White Cliff Bay. You won’t want to leave!
Libby and George have been great friends since she moved there six months ago. George has been head over heels in love with her since the moment he met her but she thinks they’re just friends, as he’s never told her of his feelings. Libby is the type of person that doesn’t stay in one place for long. She says it’s because of the research she does for her writing, but there’s more to it than that. Before she leaves, Libby decides that she wants to make sure George is happy and makes it her mission to help him land a gal. In order to give him the confidence he needs, they begin to pretend to date to get him comfortable. As you might have guessed, things get interesting and the lines of their friendship begin to blur.
This was a fun novel, set in the same town as Holly’s first novel in the White Cliff Bay series called Christmas at Lilac Cottage. I love how this novel was written into the same town with a bit of a crossover from an event that happened in the last book. I completely adored this novel. The best relationships are the ones based on friendship and respect but will these two be able to make it work? I’ve always believed that it’s important to have an emotional and intellectual connection with someone before embarking on a romantic relationship. I absolutely loved the way the novel ended and thoroughly enjoyed the back and forth banter, miscommunication and ultimately, the love that blooms.

About the Author – Holly Martin
Author Bio: Holly lives in sunny Bedfordshire in a house with round windows. She studied media at university which led to a very glitzy career as a hotel receptionist followed by an even more glamorous two years working in a bank. The moment that one of her colleagues received the much coveted carriage clock for fifteen years’ service was the moment when she knew she had to escape. She quit her job and returned to university to train to be a teacher. Three years later, she emerged wide eyed and terrified that she now had responsibility for the development of thirty young minds. She taught for four years and then escaped the classroom to teach history workshops, dressing up as a Viking one day and an Egyptian High Priestess the next. But the long journeys around the UK and many hours sat on the M25 gave her a lot of time to plan out her stories and she now writes full time, doing what she loves.
