Blurb: As the snowflakes start to fall, Holly Cove welcomes a new tenant to the beautiful old cottage on the beach…
My Review: This is the first book I’ve read by Lucy Coleman but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ve been reading it during my lunchbreaks at work and it’s completely transported me from inside the building to the Gower coast where I’ve heard waves crashing against the rocks, heard seagulls flying overhead and been immersed in long coastal walks and the cosy cottage itself.
Tia is having to face something which almost everyone will have to deal with in their lives at some point and this is mainly the story of her recovering from that and moving on with her life, while assessing the changes and whether she is happy with where she is in life. It’s brilliantly written as the story draws you in and has you understanding and empathising with Tia and following her story as it develops through the course of the book.
I could enthuse about this book all day but I’d end up with worn out fingers from typing that long! This is such a relevant but also really lovely book. It feels more substantial than some of the other books in the genre which was nice and refreshing. Although the title mentions snowflakes, the first half of the book is set in the spring/summer so I would say that this book is ideal for reading at any time of year. It would, however, be a real treat on a rainy day or in the winter with a huge mug of hit chocolate topped with marshmallows and cream. Absolute heaven!
