Publisher's Summary

A romantic seasonal novel about taking chances to find love....

Liberty has never been a risk-taker. She loves the routine of her quiet life in the charming village of Willowbrook, with her Labrador, Charlie. But the arrival of a mysterious gift prompts Liberty to make some changes: starting with a daily challenge to say yes to everything for the month of December....

Fearless and independent, Alex could hardly be a less obvious fit for peaceful village life. But after an accident cuts short his promising motorcycling career, he finds himself in Willowbrook in search of new direction.   

When the pair become unlikely housemates, sparks fly at Damselfly Cottage. Will living together prove impossible - especially when the first snow falls? Or, cut off from the outside world, can they help each other find what it takes to be brave this Christmas?

One of the best Christmas reads

How does this novel not have more reviews? I’m not even sure how I stumbled upon it. This is a beautiful story, with equally beautiful narration. It feels like The Holiday and Love Actually meet an unknown bestseller. It’s not extra or overly dramatic. Just a really nice read. So please give this novel a listen, settle in with some good hot cider or creamy coffee, start the fire, and listen, then give it a review. I may have to listen to this book every year going forward.

Loved this

My new favorite author. This wasn’t an over the top holiday cheesy romance novel (IMO). It has just the right amount of everything. Loved this and her previous novel for December reads.

What about the half sister????

I wasn’t sure I was going to like the story at first but really got into it at some point. I think it strange that one of the mystery storylines from the beginning that hinted at having shock value connections was just dropped. I wanted to know that the two main characters were not connected as it was hinted at as a possibility in the beginning. Other than that frustration it was a really good read.

Good story

I liked the story and I liked the characters. A little steamy, but nothing graphic.
I appreciate that the main character is intelligent and knows her own mind.

Review of A Winter’s Dream

What a touching love story. The ‘beauty of love’ is sensitively portrayed by the author and the narrator.

Highly recommended!

Good storyline

First time with this author and narrator. A good storyline, but felt more could have been done with the ending. I loved the narrator's voice especially her french accent.

Little predictable

The story was charming if a little predictable. I initially found the narration of the French characters to be a little jarring but I got used to it by half way.

Would love to live in a cottage like Damselfly Cottage.
