Two sisters plus one special Christmas. How hard can it be?
Lauren and Poppy Munro are set to spend the Christmas holidays with their parents in the small town of Clearwater Bay on the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand.
December brings the start of summer, and Lauren, an uptight workaholic, knows she can’t miss Christmas with the family again. But can she get through the holidays without them finding out that she’s lost her job?
Lauren always keeps emotions at a distance, the further the better, and this Christmas she’s focussed on managing her job anxiety levels. But when she bumps into Dylan, one of her old high school group, keeping her emotions under control becomes just about impossible.
Meanwhile, Poppy has finished with her boyfriend after discovering he was married. She has no intention of letting anyone else fool her. However, after saving a handsome holidaymaker from drowning is she going to make the same mistake again?
A heart-warming read of romance, family, friendship and a different kind of Christmas down-under.
If you like sweet romance with a bit of heat, then you’ll love this emotionally-driven Christmas-at-the-beach novel. Blossoming romance and well-developed characters that you’ll want to read about again.
The Second Chance Christmas is the sequel to this book. Both are standalone novels featuring many of the same characters. They can be found together in the compilation A Kiwi Christmas Collection.
This is the first book in the Clearwater Bay series.
