Welcome to the charming seaside town of White Cliff Bay, where Christmas is magical and love is in the air…
Penny Meadows loves her home – a cosy cottage decorated with pretty twinkling fairy lights and stunning views over the town of White Cliff Bay. She also loves her job as an ice-carver, creating breathtaking sculptures. Yet her personal life seems frozen.
When Henry and daughter Daisy arrive at the cottage to rent the annex, Penny is determined to make them feel welcome. But while Daisy is friendly, Henry seems guarded.
As Penny gets to know Henry, she realises there is more to him than meets the eye. And the connection between them is too strong to ignore …
While the spirit of the season sprinkles its magic over the seaside town and preparations for the ice sculpting competition and Christmas eve ball are in full swing, can Penny melt the ice and allow love in her heart? And will this finally be the perfect Christmas she’s been dreaming of?

Thoughts: Took me a few minutes to realize this is going to use British terms. Not sure how I feel about the locals being so bratty about the fact the main women mc does not have children. Loved how the whole town got into learning how to sign to be able to converse with Tilly. I have a intense hatred of Clara, that women is a menace. Loved quite a few scenes like the conversation about Bernard being a protector when the power was lost. Hope to see more of Tilly and Bea! Such a great story that felt real, can not wait to read the next book and other titles by her!
