Today I am thrilled to take part in the Blog Blitz for Snowy Nights at the Lonely Hearts Hotel by Karen King. Thank you to Bookouture and the author for a copy of the book, which I have reviewed honestly.
Snowy rooftops, mulled wine, and a hot single dad. Not the Christmas Saffy wished for… but maybe the one she needs?
Twenty-nine-year-old Saffron Baxter knew her fun holiday plans didn’t stand a chance the moment her sister called to say she was stuck abroad with no hope of being home before Christmas. Saffy would just have to abandon thoughts of wild festive parties in the city and head down to remote Cornwall.
Because every year her sister hosts a huge Christmas meal for all the single parents in her village. And Saffy knows it’d break her heart to let them down.
Arriving as snow starts to fall over the thatched cottages of the little harbour town of Port Breok, she meets Logan – the tall, fair-haired, blue-eyed, devoted single dad who lives over the road, with his adorable daughter Chloe. At first she thinks he might help her make Christmas Day extra-memorable, but he just seems convinced she’ll never manage – that she’s just a party girl who doesn’t care about family, or anyone’s feelings.
Maybe he’s right. After all – she doesn’t want to settle down, she’s only there for a few days… But she’s still determined to do her sister proud with gorgeous decorations, the most beautiful real tree – complete with extra twinkly lights, and delicious mince pies. To make it a Christmas everyone will remember, especially little Chloe. Even if, when the mistletoe comes down, she knows she’ll probably never see Logan again…
The perfect festive romance novel, ideal for fans of Nora Roberts, Jenny Hale and Debbie Macomber.
Saffron isn’t too impressed when she receives a phone call from her sister asking for a huge favour. The problem is that Hannah organises a Christmas Day meal for the single parents and children in the Cornish village where she lives every year. With two sick children, she can’t get home in time, and she asks Saffron to step in and host the party.
Saffy is a career minded city dweller with a social life to match. The last thing she wants is to change all her plans and head off to Cornwall. However, its last minute and too late for the guests to change their plans, so she reluctantly agrees.
The blow is softened a little when she meets Logan, the handsome single father next door. The attraction is instant for Saffy, but is Logan giving her the cold shoulder?
Logan’s daughter Chloe is an absolute sweetheart (with a polar bear obsession!). There are some interesting supporting characters, a dog called Oscar and lots of mistletoe and snow.
The story centres around Saffy’s ability to pull the party together. She doesn’t want to let her sister down and feels that she must prove to Logan that she isn’t the irresponsible, self-centered person he thinks she is. There is drama from Logan’s ex, humour from Saffy’s friends and plenty of romance too!
I adored Snowy Nights at the Lonely Hearts Hotel, one of my favourite Christmas reads so far!
