What a wonderful romantic novel with a perfect touch of real life. If you are looking for a winterly setting, great characters, and romance, this is your book. The winter cover adds to the story, no matter if you look at the English edition or the German. I LOVE IT!

Lily never met her father. But now she wants to find out more about her origins – and her half-siblings in Switzerland. How is she supposed to do that for her job at the Middledip pub? Now, before Christmas, it´s busy. And Isaac, her handsome boss, needs her. A trip by the Middledip Choir to the Christmas market in the Swiss mountains comes in handy. But Lily´s adventure threatens to slide into chaos. And why can´t she get Isaac out of her head, who finally makes her heart beat faster again after many years? A Christmas party awaits Lily that can change everything. (personal translation by ©Vi at Inkvotary).
Lily wants to get to know her half-siblings. That is the reason why she is working in a pub. Her boss is one of her half-brothers. But when is the right moment to tell them the truth? To let them know that she exists and wants nothing but their friendship? When Isaac, her new boos steps into her life, Lily starts to realize that things can be quite complicated and easy at the same time. Sounds confusing? Well, it is, and it is not.

Sue Moorcroft combines some great characters, a wonderful plot, and beautiful scenery (both in England and Switzerland) into a fantastic novel that I could hardly put aside. No cheesy things here, but lots of emotions and a main character to teach you a lesson or two. All in all, in an easy-to-read writing style and some beautiful traditions.

Lily is an independent woman with an annoying sister and two mothers. Something new and the perfect addition to the story. Gives this book the perfect touch. One of her mothers is not happy with the fact that Lily wants to know more about the father she never knew. And want to get to know her half-siblings who are out there somewhere. Her inner conflict to find them and to keep the right balance between her own family and her new one is shown by Sue Moorcroft in a very sensitive and wonderful way.

If you are looking for a novel that will bring you into the Christmas mood, this one is a perfect choice. Highly recommended.

Happy reading

Deutsche Rezension

Sue Moorcroft kombiniert einige großartige Charaktere, eine wundervolle Handlung und eine traumhaft schöne Landschaft (sowohl in England als auch in der Schweiz) zu einem fantastischen Roman, den ich kaum beiseitelegen konnte. Kein kitschiges Zeug hier, aber viele Emotionen und eine Hauptfigur, die dir ein oder zwei Lektionen beibringt. Alles in allen in einem leicht lesbaren Schreibstil und mit einigen schönen Traditionen versehen.

Lily ist eine unabhängige Frau mit einer nervigen Schwester und zwei Müttern. Etwas Neues und die perfekte Ergänzung zur Geschichte. Verleiht diesem Buch die perfekte Note. Da eine ihrer Mütter nicht glücklich darüber ist, dass Lily mehr über den Vater wissen möchte, den sie nie gekannt hat. Und ihre Halbgeschwister kennenlernen möchte, die irgendwo da draußen sind. Ihr innerer Konflikt, sie zu finden und das richtige Gleichgewicht zwischen ihrer eigenen und ihrer neuen Familie zu halten, zeigt Sue Moorcroft auf sehr sensible und wunderbare Weise.

Wenn du nach einem Roman suchst, der dich in Weihnachtsstimmung versetzt, dann ist dieses Buch die perfekte Wahl. Sehr empfehlenswert.
