Erith leaves behind her old life, and her ex-boyfriend, to start afresh. She moves to a lovely Scottish seaside town and opens up a vintage tea shop and bakery selling cakes, bread, scones and tea.
It's Christmas time, and although
Erith wants a quiet life, baking during the day and sewing her quilts in
the evenings in her house above the shop, the local shopkeepers soon
involve her in their festive plans.
Stuart, who owns the shop
that sells everything, flirts with her. Handsome interior designer,
Muir, takes an interest in her, but is she interested in him? And what
about Zack, the gorgeous bad boy?
In this Christmassy romance,
Erith bakes everything from chocolate bread to traditional Victoria
sponge cakes. She blends her special selection of teas. She becomes
friends with the local sewing bee women, Doreen, Millie and Belle. She
also realises that when it comes to love, she has to trust her instincts
rather than listen to local gossip.
Set in a Scottish seaside
town in a snowy December, there's baking, sewing, snogging and sexy men
in this light-hearted romance novella. It's 22,000 words of Christmas
Amid the chaos of Christmas, will Erith find time for
love? Will there be a festive proposal? Who will be Santa and switch on
the town's Christmas tree lights? In the busy little town there's only
one thing for sure - no one wants to dress up as the reindeer's bum.
Another short cosy romance by De-ann Black (I think I say the same each time). As usual there is an abundance of fine men flirting with the main female character and she has to chose the right one and of course she does. And it is fine to read a Christmassy short story in the middle of summer.
