Snowflakes over Moon Cottage
By Lucy Daniels
The fourth novel in the heartwarming, countryside-set Hope Meadows series, perfect for fans of Katie Fforde, Holly Martin and Heidi Swain.
It's Christmas-time in the little Yorkshire village of Welford, and the first snowflakes are just starting to fall.
As far as Susan Collins is concerned, this Christmas is all about quality time with her family, especially her son Jack. After a string of terrible dates, she's given up on love. And with the class of schoolchildren she teaches making regular trips to local animal rescue centre Hope Meadows, Susan's certainly got plenty to keep her busy.
That is, until she meets handsome children's author Douglas Macleod. He might be the opposite of Susan's usual type with his dishevelled appearance and bright red hair, but an undeniable spark soon lights up between them. But then Michael Chalk, Susan's ex and Jack's father, turns up on the scene wanting Jack (and Susan back) - and Susan finds herself torn between the two men.
With snow settling on the ground and the big day fast approaching, who will Susan and Jack be choosing to spend Christmas at Moon Cottage with this year?
Hope Meadows is based on the globally bestselling Animal Ark series. Perfect for fans of Katie Fforde, Heidi Swain and Cathy Bramley.
