Heritage Cove is in full swing for the festive season and as the temperature dips, who will be lucky in love this Christmas?

It’s December in Heritage Cove and along with the village Christmas tree, frosty mornings and the promise of the most wonderful time of the year, the new waffle shack is about to open. And its owner isn’t a stranger to the Cove, because after all this time, Daniel is back to make amends with his brother Harvey – as well as a few other locals he might have offended along the way.

Fairly new to the village, local blacksmith Lucy has kept up the pretence of being with her ex for the sake of his gran but she’s fed up with all the lies. Determined to come clean and live the life she wants to live, she’s devastated to find that her attraction to Daniel is tainted by the fact he’s hiding a few things of his own. And his secrets are ones she isn’t sure she’ll ever be able to get past.

Heritage Cove is full of friendship and community; it’s a welcoming place people visit and never want to leave. But will it work its magic for Daniel and Lucy?

A festive read packed with Christmas romance, love and second chances, this is Book 2 in a series of standalone novels set in Heritage Cove, the little village by the sea…

My Thoughts

Despite being part of a linked series with the same setting, I read this novel as a stand a one and it worked perfectly.  

It’s Christmas in Heritage Cove and the community is all curious about the new log cabin that is being built.  Until Daniel walks into Lucy’s Blacksmith’s shop and asks for sign for his new business – a waffle shop!  Are the sparks between the two real or does Daniel come with too many secrets?

For those of us who like their books to come with a fabulous setting, wonderful characters and an aroma of delicious, mouth-watering tasty treats, this novel is perfection. 

I’m starting with the waffles as it’s the only way I can get my brain to move onto the other bits.  The description of the waffles is divine and every time I came across one in the book, I would have sold my soul to actually eat it right then.  I could taste every mouthful.  I also found the art of the blacksmith fascinating too.  Each step was so lovingly performed by Lucy, her passion and talent oozed from the page.

Daniel’s return to the village is not welcome by everyone.  Sparks fly between him and Lucy but Lucy is really struggling to get over some things from his past as well as move on from her own past.  It’s a ‘will they-won’t they?’ trope with a sprinkle of drama, a fabulously festive backdrop and a whole bunch of community.

I highly recommend this wonderful festive read.
