Dear Readers,

This story was inspired by a trip to Savannah. I visited one of the area’s Civil War forts and became fascinated by the discovery that General Sherman and his men had arrived in a conquered Savannah on Christmas Eve. What sort of Christmas could they have had? From there, my imagination
took over . . .

Despite having been on opposite sides of the war, Yankee doctor Josh Coltrane is unprepared for the continued bitterness of his long-lost love, Angel Summers. Can these two former sweethearts learn to forgive and forget the past?

I hope you enjoy reading Josh and Angel’s story as much I enjoyed writing it.

This utterly addictive new novel from bestselling author Holly Martin will make you smile until your cheeks hurt, sob tears of pure joy and fall head over heels in love with a totally unforgettable romance…

 

Isla Rosewood is creating a new life for herself and her sweet nephew Elliot in their cosy, yellow-brick family cottage, brimming with special memories. Living in Sandcastle Bay was never part of Isla’s plan but, after her brother Matthew’s tragic accident, her whole world changed as she unexpectedly became a mother to the little boy she adores so much.

 

Leo Jackson was always known as Matthew’s fun-loving and wild best friend. But now Matthew is gone, it’s time to put his colourful past behind him. His role as Elliot’s godfather is the most important thing to him. And even though Leo and Isla are two very different people, they both want to give Elliot the childhood he deserves.

 

As the three of them enjoy time together watching fireworks, baking cakes and collecting conkers, Isla begins to see a softer side to charming Leo, with his twinkling eyes and mischievous sense of humour. And, despite herself, she begins to fall for him.

 

But does Leo feel the same way? Isla knows their situation is complicated but is it too complicated for true love… or will the year end with a happy new beginning for them all?

 

A glorious, feel-good romance that will make you want to snuggle up under a warm blanket with a hot chocolate and the one you love. If you enjoy reading Sarah Morgan, Jenny Oliver and Lucy Diamond this book is for you.

Life is full of trivia. More and more, it seems, every waking minute of our lives is spoken for, by the inconsequential, the irrelevant, the incidental, the positively wasteful, and by a whole host of other stuff that serves no purpose whatsoever other than to distract us from what is really important. It’s time for a remedy. It’s time to counter the avalanche of useless stuff with something really essential. And here it is: everything one could ever need to know in order to retain a hold on what life is really all about – in one easy-to-use compendium of wisdom: The A-Z of Stuff. This work has been painstakingly compiled – with no reference to sensitivities, accuracy or fairness – to provide its readers with all the indispensable stuff they will ever need. So, whether it is an explanation of the flaws of democracy, a demolition of the principle of ‘human rights’, a treatise on the scourge of testosterone or a review of the unavoidable hilarity of sex, it can all be found within the pages of The A-Z. Presented in an easy-to-read, concise format, The A-Z educates and entertains at the same time. With a large helping of humour and some snappy doggerel, it is an invaluable mine of information, but one that doesn’t take itself entirely seriously – or at all! The A-Z of Stuff will win over all those who are almost continuously distracted by the unimportant stuff, and equip them instead with all that is really important – and, no doubt, with some nourishing food for thought...
