Snowflakes on Holly Cove by Lucy Coleman - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads
Review by Suze

Tia is in Holly Cove to recover, after losing her mother grief has overwhelmed her and when she’s finally ready to go back to work her boss gives her a project that should lift her spirits. Tia works for a lifestyle magazine and has to write an article about love. It’s something Tia hasn’t found for herself yet, but maybe a change of scenery will bring her more than just comfort and a refreshed outlook on life.

Tia stays at a beautiful cosy cottage that belongs to Nic. Nic is a heartbroken man, who slowly comes to life again when he spends time with his new guest. They both know what it’s like to feel sad, but together they are finally able to find some joy as well. Will Tia’s stay in Holly Cove be successful? She makes friends and loves the beach, but does that mean her heart will heal and will she be able to start looking at the future instead of at the past. Will the holiday season get its magic back?

Snowflakes Over Holly Cove is a beautiful heartwarming story. I loved Tia, she’s sweet, caring and smart. She’s also honest and not afraid to talk to people. She easily makes new friends and I liked her accessible personality a lot. Tia is exactly what Holly Cove needs, Nic in particular. Tia tries to make things better for him, but by letting him help himself instead of doing it for him. That was such a wonderful thing to witness. They’re amazing together, everything just fits. They have such a gorgeous connection, but there are plenty of obstacles to overcome and many feelings to get through, so nothing about the future is sure yet. That kept me on the edge of my seat, I loved every single page of their adventure.

Lucy Coleman’s writing has a terrific natural flow. I find it easy to lose myself in her stories and especially like the skillful way she creates an atmosphere. Every description is exactly right and each twist feels completely right, while it’s still surprising and unexpected. Snowflakes Over Holly Cove is romantic and thought-provoking. It’s about the good and the bad that can happen in life and how to deal with it. I really enjoyed reading this gem of a book and highly recommend it.


If you love wonderful winter stories with delightful romance and a gorgeous atmosphere you don’t want to miss Snowflakes Over Holly Cove.

About Lucy Coleman

I write heart-warming stories about life, love and relationships. Above all it’s about the feelgood factor, as isn’t everyone simply chasing the dream of a happy life with the one they love? And dreams do, often, come true but in real life it’s seldom a case of everything instantly falling into place. So I write about the journey …

For those who like labels: romance, psychic romance, chick lit, women’s contemporary fiction, romantic comedy – but the aim is still the same – a feelgood read that will touch your heart!

When I’m not writing my husband and I are serial house movers and love getting hands-on with the renovation work. My background in interior design is a passion that will never leave me – or my love for upcycling furniture! We love going for walks in the Forest of Dean, which is now our home after spending most of our married life in Bristol. It’s a very spiritual place and for me it felt like coming home. I love taking photographs and seem to capture quite a few orbs as I snap away, something I find comforting. I feel blessed to be able to spend my working life writing and it’s only the wonderful readers and reviewers who have made that happen ~ for which I am eternally grateful!

So if you are looking for something to curl up and escape with, you can read chapter 1 from each of my novels by clicking on the covers. I do hope you find something that makes you want to keep turning those pages!

Lucy Coleman also writes as Linn B. Halton.
