Hal heads for Cornwall, later in the year, to stay with his cousin, Sam, for a couple of weeks, and there he meets, Jane, a mystery writer who has just entered a writing contest and is hoping to win agent representation for her first book.
They are attracted to each other almost immediately, and they don't try to pretend that away, as happens in some Christmas romance novels. In fact, that's one of the things I like about this series.
But they do both try to convince themselves that it could never work, and their arguments are pretty compelling.
The townspeople get quite involved, either trying to throw them together or persuade them apart. And Hal has a rival for our Jane's affections, and this one's not prepared to give up!
I'll leave the rest of the story for you to discover as you read it.
I recommend it, and though it is a standalone, I suggest reading both books in the series, and starting with the first one, Summer in Little Penhaven.
What have you been reading lately? Any Christmas romance novels in your queue?
See you tomorrow!
