Out with the old life, in with the new …
When Laura’s bride-to-be sister, Polly, organises a surprise reunion for her fiancé and his long lost American friend, Laura grudgingly agrees to help keep the secret. And when the plain-spoken, larger-than-life Hunter McQueen steps off the bus in her rainy Devon town and only just squeezes into her tiny car, it confirms that Laura has made a big mistake in going along with her sister's crazy plan.
But could the tall, handsome man with the Nashville drawl be just what reserved Laura Williams needs to shake up her life and start something new?
Great characters that you want to get to know
Lovely relaxing read. Great characters. Hunter is a gorgeous hunk of a man from the USA, almost too good to be true. However everyone has secrets. Can Laura look beyond his appearance to see his true character? Very well written novel which draws you into these characters’ world. Highly recommend
I didn't mean to stay up so late, it was too good to leave until the next day.
As the title suggests, the book is set during winter, this time in Devon and a very wet Devon. Chapter one opens in deluging rain that continues on and off throughout the book. But don't let this put you off, it's just to create atmosphere.
Hunter arrives in Plymouth from America as a surprise guest at his best friend's wedding. He's staying with Laura, the bride's sister, until the actual wedding day. While Hunter is outgoing, Laura keeps all her emotions well hidden the result of her disastrous marriage.
Hunter enjoys teasing Laura in an attempt to loosen up her British reserve. Laura's not reserved, the consequences of her ex-husband's behaviour means she can't believe Hunter could be attracted to her.
They both have a damaged history but together they might manage to overcome their fears.
Great book with believable and likeable characters, and it doesn't rain all the time in Devon.
