Let It Snow by Sue Moorcroft My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I am a fan of Sue Moorcroft’s books and I normally read the ARCs before they come out. I missed doing it with this one, so I saved it to read over Christmas.
We go back to Middledip for this story. I like this sort of thing, where you see characters from other books pass through in the background. It makes me feel like part of a community.
Lilly finds out about her father the day he dies. She has complicated feelings about her blood family and wants to get to know her half brothers. But they might not be so pleased to meet her. So she’s working part time as a barmaid at the Three Fishes pub while she works out what to do.
Isaac is picking him self back up after the double whammy of losing his old business and breaking up with his ex. He’s working as a temporary manager at the Three Fishes. He’s Lilly’s boss.
Both the characters are interesting and easy to relate to. I liked that Isaac is a stickler for the rules and that Lily admits the mixed feelings she has when Isaac has to go and help someone. Oh, I nearly forgot Doggo! He’s a dog. You’ve got to love an exuberant dog!
Lily’s journey eventually takes her to a winter wonderland in Switzerland (via a trip to A & E). You don’t get much more Christmassy than a choir singing carols in a Swiss winter market.
There’s plenty going on in this book and everything that can go wrong, does. It’s a lovely, romantic story about the family you’re linked to and the family you find through your friendships.
