Book Beginnings & Friday 56 -- Holly Martin's Snowflakes on Silver Cove

Snowflakes on Silver Cove is the second book set in White Cliff Bay. I read the first, Christmas at Lilac Cottage, back in December and this one was actually one of the deciding factors in doing Christmas in July! I even put it off a little longer than I wanted to just so I would be able to have it lined up for a Book Beginnings & Friday 56 post.

As always, Friday 56 (share from the 56th page or 56% mark) is hosted at Freda's Voice & Book Beginnings (share the first few sentences) is at Rose City Reader.

Amazon Description:
Libby Joseph is famous for her romantic Christmas stories. Every December, readers devour her books of falling in love against the magical backdrop of the Christmas season. If only Libby believed in the magic herself…
Struggling to finish her current novel, Libby turns to her best friend and neighbour George Donaldson to cheer her up. But George also needs a bit of support himself. Nervous about getting back into the dating saddle after splitting from his wife, he and Libby strike a deal. She will teach George how to win over the ladies, and Libby will in turn be inspired to inject her novel with a good dose of romance.
As Libby and George explore the beautiful White Cliff Bay on a series of romantic Christmas-themed dates, Libby finds herself having more fun than she’s had in ages and…discovers feelings that she never knew she had for George.
But is it too late? Will George win someone else’s heart or can Libby act like the heroine in one of her stories and reach for her own love under the mistletoe this Christmas?

Cracking up from the very beginning! Is the squeaking a mouse? If it is ... what's up with the bang???

Of course, I know exactly what it's all about now but I'm not going to tell you. That would take all of the fun out of it being a tease!

Snowflakes on  Silver Cove was an absolute delight! I loved the first White Cliff Bay book and this one was just as wonderful if not even moreso. The two books actually take place at the same time but with different main characters so it was fun to see some of the folks and events from Christmas at Lilac Cottage again from a different view. I'll definitely be grabbing the third one soon and hope that there will be many more to come!


  1. This does sound like a cute story. I have a romantic suspense title this week - The Sapphire Affair by Lauren Blakely. Happy reading!

  2. Sounds like a fun read....thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “IN TWENTY YEARS”

  3. So many possibilities with that beginning! And that 56! I love this kind of plot. I'lld efintiely have to pick this one up.

  4. Why not? Christmas, or the spirit of it, should be a year-long thing. I love the idea of Christmas in July. I take it you live down-under so this is your winter. Am I right? I think Christmas in the cold season is a good idea.
