As I have said before I am a huge fan of Christmas stories and this one is no exception. Penny lives alone in the house she grew up in, just outside her village. It is a somewhat lonely life for her as all her agemates marry and have children and she is still single and alone. She supports herself by carving ice sculptures, a metaphor for her heart perhaps? She decides to rent out the annex of her house to hopefully find some companionship. The story takes off once Penny’s new tenants arrive.
Can two people who have been hurt in the past find love together? Can a family be constructed from broken pieces? Will the Christmas season works its magic? I liked all the characters and the setting was lovely. The misunderstanding was a little contrived in the beginning, but I could just roll with it as a set up for a charming Christmas romance.
Lovely Christmas romance that draws you into Penny’s world and has you cheering for her all the way!
