My Thoughts…

This was a beautiful romance with a surprising historical twist and I felt it added something more than your typical holiday romances. It was well written with the hopes of romance and new beginnings as well as glances to the past and what might have been. This book will transport you from the rainy streets of London to the snowy forests and ski lodges of Norway and an added bonus is that there are some interesting characters to meet along the way!

About the book…

Jane thought she would be alone this Christmas, but will a luxury trip to Norway mend her broken heart? A heart-warming, feel-good festive treat to curl up with this winter.

Heartbroken by a failed romance, journalist Jane Brook is sent to Norway to cover the Queen of the Forest, the Christmas tree given to the people of London every winter. A week of luxury hotels and festive celebrations awaits, all in the company of dashing adventurer Philip Donnelly. Perhaps this is what Jane needs to mend her aching heart?

But, deep in the heart of the snowy forest, Jane makes a startling discovery: long-hidden wartime letters between a young soldier and a mysterious girl. The last letter ends with a passionate plea that was never answered.

Now, only Jane can give this story of love and courage a perfect ending – and in doing so, she might just find her own happy ever after. . .
