Life on the Moors

Contemporary Romance
Do you believe in fate? Livvie Weatherill does… This time last year, if anyone had told Livvie Weatherill she’d have fallen in love and would be making plans for her Christmas wedding to Zander Gillespie, she would have laughed in their face. If they’d gone on to say they’d be planning to have their wedding at the imposing Danskelfe Castle, she’d have laughed even louder! But it would seem fate had plans for her… Since moving to the pretty moorland village of Lytell Stangdale Livvie is happier than she’s ever been. She’s living with Zander and she’s working at her dream job as a wedding dress designer at Romantique with her friends, Kitty and Violet. It’s fair to say, she’s enjoying immersing herself in village life, from romantic walks in the countryside, to meeting friends at the quaint Sunne Inne. And she can’t think of anything better than rounding off the day cosying up with Zander. Life is sweet. Her blossoming friendship with Freda Easton, the endearing but reclusive elderly lady who lives down the lane, has taken everyone by surprise. But Freda has a secret and, in a turn of events no one could predict, she finds herself grateful for Livvie’s fierce loyalty, cementing their friendship further. Just when things seem to be running smoothly, a face from the past arrives on the doorstep casting a shadow over Livvie’s wedding plans. Adding to the drama, an icy blast of Arctic air brings heavy snowfall to the village, covering the moors in a thick blanket of snow. Is their love strong enough to withstand the challenges thrown at them? Will they get their magical Christmas wedding? Join Livvie and Zander – and all the usual characters – for a sparkling Christmas full of love and laughter in Lytell Stangdale.

Welcome back everyone, we’re back on the Moors a year after we first met Livvie and Zander in A Christmas Kiss.

In series like this one where each book follows a new couple it’s highly unusual for a second book in the same series to follow a couple we’ve already met. But at the same time, I love that I got to see them through to the wedding.

Interestingly, this book also spans 6 months from their engagement right through to their wedding just before Christmas. The trials and tribulations Livvie and Zander face seem to be never ending and yet their love for each other never seems to waver.

One secret I guessed, one I got partially right and one I didn’t see coming!

The final few surprises I didn’t see coming but I feel like they were just perfect. They made the perfect ending to all the drama, all the uncertainty and showed that sometimes things happen for a reason.

Given the year we’ve all had to deal with, this little feel good moment was perfect! I don’t think I could have planned a better ending if I’d tried. I even think we have a couple of contenders for the next book in the series!

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this review; I’ll be taking a very short break so I can meet a couple of commitments I have in early December. But I’ll be back with a review for Tempted by the Tycoon’s Proposal by Rachael Stewart. Continue to read further down to find out about the author.
