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.

Christmas Reunion in Paris by Liz Fielding #Review #ChristmasattheHarringtonParkHotelBook One


Today we have a true romance, Christmas Reunion in Paris by Liz Fielding, which was published on September 3rd. 

Parisian reunion

With the one that got away!

Celebrity chef James Harrington never expected to find himself face-to-face with Chloe, his first love, again… Especially, with her working as a chambermaid at his luxury hotel! Their chemistry’s as strong as ever, but she’s hiding a secret. Can James convince Chloe that their love is worth taking a chance on – again?

 My Thoughts

This romance is the first in a trilogy of books which are in the Harrington Park Hotel series. Centred around James and Chloe, the story starts with their chance meeting in Paris. As you discover, they share a history and this becomes a 'will they, won't they? second chance story. It features some beautiful parts of Paris and further afield. You get a sense of the Paris the tourists see. Although James and Chloe have a glamorous background, they seem down to earth and hard working.

    Despite its title, this is one of those books which is set near Christmas but is not overly festive. It is very much concentrated on James and Chloe's family background. Chloe, in particular, develops as a character and has to face some demons from her past. It is an enjoyable, light romance which is great to while away a wintry weekend. 

In short: Second Chances.
