On Christmas Hill by Faith Mortimer


This is a seasonal…as you can guess!…romance by Faith.

One of the ingredients for a romance is usually a stubborn female protagonist who refuses to succumb to Mr Tall Dark and Handsome’s advances. And it’s always fun to see how long Miss I Will Resist You For As Long Possible will actually refuse to let down her defences and how the drop-dead gorgeous male protagonist eventually wins. And this story doesn’t disappoint one little bit. It’s a warm and cheering Christmas story.

Catherine Merryweather has been hurt twice by ‘unsuitable’ men. A single mother, with a five-year-old daughter, she’s fiercely independent and is adamant she won't be taken advantage of again by selfish men. As temporary manager in a small sub-post office in a pretty English village, she uncovers a letter that has lain, unposted, for many years. Little does she know that her endeavours to find the recipient of that letter will lead to love for more than one person… 

This is the perfect novel to curl up and read on a cold winter’s evening with a cup of cocoa. The Christmas spirit cloaks the whole story with just enough charm and twinkly appeal. It’s easy to read, flows along at a nice steady pace, and of course, Faith’s clean, fresh, and uncluttered style make this a cosy little romance that will leave you with a smile on your face.
