Soulmates don’t just fall from the sky… do they?
Hannah Meadows doesn’t believe in fate or destiny, or any of the other things people reach for when they lose control of their lives. That is, until a man arrives on her doorstep on Christmas Day begging for help. Hannah’s not the sort of woman to turn her back on someone in need, but this isn’t what compels her to aid the handsome stranger, nor is it his intense dark eyes, or the inexplicable feelings she quickly develops for him.
Something magical is coming her way, something that will turn her life completely upside down. Hannah Meadows may not believe in fate or destiny, but they seem to have other ideas…
I loved reading the Mishaps in Millrise series so when I found out Tilly Tennant was doing a Christmas novella I just had to read it! I love Tilly’s writing as she manages to put serious issues as well as laughter into her stories so I really look forward to reading them.
Hannah is anticipating a quiet Christmas at home with her sister Gina and her daughter Jess in a little cottage in the country when there is a knock on the door on Christmas morning and standing there in a bloodied and dazed state is a man, not any man, but quite a handsome one, but one who can’t remember his own name!!
They decide to call him Tom and as he has quite a gash to his head, an ambulance is called to check him out. It has been snowing so this makes things difficult and the emergency services take an age to get there, so in the meantime the girls try and quiz “Tom” into finding out who he is, but obviously the knock on the head has left him with amnesia and he can’t remember a thing!
The story gets very comical, not least that it seems to take them all day to cook the Christmas dinner and with other calamities happening in the meantime, this is a really lovely, funny story.
I must admit, I was getting near the end of the novella and was wondering how it was going to end, only to find out that this was the first of another four part series!! Yippee!! I loved this story and can’t wait for the next instalment!
Thank you to Tilly Tennant and JB Johnston at Brook Cottage Books for sending me a copy of this novella for review.
