This year spend a wonderful Christmas on Juniper Island, where love can melt even the iciest of hearts…
Piper Chesterfield lives a glamorous life travelling the world and reviewing the finest hotels. She calls nowhere home, she works alone and that’s how she likes it. For long ago Piper decided that to protect her heart she should lock it away.
So when Piper’s next assignment brings her to the newly opened Stardust Lake Hotel for the festive season, the last person she expects to face is Gabe Whitaker, the man who broke her heart so completely she could never love again.
But Piper isn’t the only one who has been frozen in time by heartbreak. Gabe hasn’t forgotten the golden-eyed girl who disappeared from his world without a trace.
Now fate has reunited them on Juniper island, can the magic of Christmas heal old wounds? And can this enchanting town be the one place Piper can finally call home?
Curl up with this gorgeously romantic tale and let the glistening snow and the roaring fires of Stardust Lake Hotel get you in the festive spirit this Christmas.
Christmas books and pretty covers, how can I say NO! I loved the synopsis of this book and regardless of how slow I felt it might have been, overall I really enjoyed this book.
The beginning took me a little bit to really start liking the characters. I enjoyed Pip and Gabe they had some very good chemistry. Wren, Gabe’s daughter was super cute. The overall story was sweet and intense, I found myself tearing up a little at the end and the book does end with a bit of a cliffhanger but nothing extreme. I will definitely be grabbing the next book. I loved Gabe’s family and the misfit gang of ponies. The Hotel that this book is set in sounds amazing and I want to visit it. The world build was fantastic and I can picture the entire place in my head. The character build was pretty involved and I loved the backstories it really let you feel what the characters we’re going through.
The slowness that I felt in the book was a little of the build up to the end. I enjoyed the world build and development of each character but a little of the process was rather slow. I get they are trying to finish fixing up the hotel/resort but I almost at some points felt like we were going step by step. Not that, that is a bad thing, it just slowed down the book a little and I sort of wanted more of the secondary characters. Especially the people in the town, I would love to visit a town like that.
Overall, I really liked this book, gorgeous setting and likable characters that might take a little getting used to. The end melted my heart and just made me fall in love with the idea of it all. I can’t wait to read the next book! Highly recommend for a sweet christmas story that will make you want to visit this amazing fictional place.
