A Christmas Miracle in the Little Irish Village by Michelle Vernal #Review

  Michelle Vernal's A Christmas Miracle in the Little Irish Village was published on September 27th by Bookoutre . Ava Kelly loves returning to Emerald Bay for Christmas. Snowflakes fall on the green rolling hills and mulled wine fills The Shamrock Inn with the smell of winter spice. But this year, the Kelly family is hoping for a miracle… When twenty-four-year-old Ava Kelly and her adventurous twin Grace return home to The Shamrock Inn, their Ma’s favourite baubles bring back so many memories of Christmases past. They have always done everything together, even leaving their little Irish village for the excitement of London. But with the locket her handsome ex Shane gave her hanging just above her heart, Ava has just one wish this festive season… After a year stuck in a job she can’t stand and going on dreadful dates, Ava longs to be back with Shane. Curling up in front of the fire with him, the brooding fisherman everyone else sees melts away as his blue eyes meet hers.

A Country Dilemma by Sasha Morgan #Review

I am delighted to be taking part on the first day of the blog tour for Sasha Morgan's A Country Dilemma which is released in e-book and paperback today by Aria. 
For Christie Newbury, moving to the Cotswolds as the new owner of The Templar, a quaint countryside inn, was supposed to be a dream come true. But then her husband drops a bombshell that turns her life upside down.

Architect Daniel James has just one month to find the perfect home. When his search takes him to the village of Treweham, his instant attraction to the Templar's beautiful –and newly single –owner is a distraction he can't afford.

Christie needs an expert's eye. Daniel needs a place to stay. It's only a business deal –but it has never been more tempting to mix business with pleasure...Welcome back to Treweham, a village of scandal and secrets.

Perfect for fans of Holly Martin and Debbie Johnson

My Thoughts

 This is the third in a series, but I can honestly say that it can be read as a standalone. You are able to catch up with the backstories of the principal characters and quickly get a feel for the dynamics within the village of Treweham. You follow the lives of several couples and are also introduced to two newcomers to the village, Christie and Daniel. 

    This is an ideal escapist read. The author has said that she writes romance with a bit of 'spice' so if that is your preference, you will be delighted! However, the 'spice' doesn't detract from the romance and there is a lovely heartwarming feel to the story. Several of the pairings find that they have challenges to overcome but they all share an honest attitude towards life and are family minded. The beautiful countryside of the Cotswolds is celebrated in the book through the portrayal of the estate and village itself. 

In short: An enjoyable escape to the Cotswolds.
