Great for reading by the fire. I was slightly distracted by an over abundance of exclamation points though!

Welcome back to Trisha Ashley as we knew her in Good Husband Material and Every Woman for Herself. An engaging, moment-by-moment (that can get a little tedious, but it's a minor quip), return to fully living for young widow Holly Brown who goes house-sitting over Christmas and meets Mr. Grumpy but Right.

This was a cute read for this time of year. Having picked up a used UK copy, everything in it screamed cosy. Heroine Holly Brown works for Homebodies, a housesitting organization. A remote job up near the Lancashire moors is perfect for Holly, as she doesn't celebrate Christmas anymore. The Martland home quickly becomes the site of an extended house party for nearby relatives when the snow comes and all are pretty much at the mercy of the icy roads. The book was a bit long, but enjoyable.

This isn't the first Trisha Ashley book I have read, but the others were a long time ago and I got a bit fed up of the chick lit genre back then. However, I was taken with the idea of reading this one over Christmas. It sounded like a good story and I wasn't disappointed. I have to say that I also really liked the glitter on the cover!It's a little bit twee but in the nicest possible way. Holly Brown, a young widow, is asked to house-sit at Jude Martland's country pile while he is out of the country over Christmas. However, she soon ends up with a lot of his relatives and neighbours as house guests, as the house is cut off during 'the big freeze'. Holly is a chef, as well as a house-sitter, and spends a lot of time making mouth-watering dishes for the family, all of whom start to think of her as one of them. While all this is going on, Holly is also reading her late gran's journal from her time nursing during the war, and finds out that the Martlands are not complete strangers to her family. There is a little snippet from the journals at the beginning of each chapter.This is a really lovely book, and I definitely want to read more by Trisha Ashley now. There are some really nice characters in it, and the story is put together very well and is a real heart-warmer.

This book was not what I was expecting; however, very enjoyable. Was not a fast read as it was detailed and this was needed for the story.
