Love is in the air and the festive season is just around the corner at the seaside town of Muddleford.
Nellie is happily settled in her gorgeous clifftop home. Her favourite evenings are those spent at her beach hut, cozying up under a blanket with her fiancé. There’s nothing quite like spending time together under the twinkly stars – complete with a delicious hot chocolate and her dog Norman sprawled on their feet.
But she can’t help feeling that there’s still something missing.
When Nellie meets Esme, a mysterious visitor to Muddleford, the pair of them come up with a plan to raise money for the local animal shelter, leading to the grand finale – a Christmas Ball.
But Esme’s keeping a secret about Nellie’s past that promises to throw her whole world upside down.
Will this be Nellie’s perfect Christmas for the first time in forever? Or will it turn into her worst nightmare – one that she’ll never forget?
Sometimes you have to go back to go forward.
A gorgeous festive read to curl up by the fireside with, for fans of Heidi Swain, Jessica Redland and Beth Moran.

What a heartwarming read to round off my lighter Christmas picks! It was lovely to revisit Nellie and pals in Muddleford Cove. I lapped up the laugh-out-loud rude bits, especially the sausage jokes. Still sniggering!
There’s something captivating about the location and that something is the beach, the cute cottages and the beach hut. To take me there in winter felt magical.
I enjoyed the family drama, the heartache and the revelations. Joyful, tearful, happy and festive – that’s what this book will make you feel. Another fantastic winner from Kim Nash!
Thanks for reading!
