LIKE A WINTER SNOW: A PORT WILLIS CHRISTMAS NOVELLA by Lindsay Harrel, Reviewed by Winnie Thomas

Like a Winter Snow is a charming Christmas novella that ventures back to Port Willis and some of the characters in Lindsay Harrel’s novel, The Secrets of Paper and Ink. It was such fun to return and visit again. With a setting in Cornwall at Christmas and some fantastic, endearing characters, it was easy for me to settle in for this delightful, easy read. Joy and Oliver were wonderful main characters, and I enjoyed seeing them interact.
Themes of faith, friendship, and forgiveness of self are deftly woven into the novella. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and my only complaint is that I wish it were longer!

Back Cover Blurb:
Cozy up with this charming and uplifting romance all about unexpected love, true friendship, and family loyalty. Set during a Christmas-time wedding among the falling snow, this sweet story will warm your heart.

Women’s counselor Joy Beckman has always been a friend and helper to all. That’s why she’s given up everything to be with her parents as her mother suffers through Alzheimer’s. Joy may not have a thriving career or a love life at the moment, but she’s doing what she does best—taking care of others. And even though it’s difficult, she knows it’s where she is supposed to be.

But life throws a curveball when she has to leave her parents temporarily to travel to Cornwall, England, for the December wedding of her best friend. While there, Joy helps Sophia tackle her last-minute to-do list, and in the process, finally meets a man who turns her head—and her heart. The only problem? He lives in snowy London, and her life is with her parents back in sunny Florida.

She tries to resist Oliver Lincoln’s charms, but it’s harder than it should be. With her heart torn in two, Joy is forced to choose between a life she knows she’s meant for and the one she didn’t see coming.

Fall in love with this enchanting romance that’s sure to delight fans of Rachel Hauck, Autumn Macarthur, and Alexa Verde. Even if you have not read
The Secrets of Paper and Ink (where the quaint village of Port Willis was first born), you can fully enjoy this heartwarming holiday novella.
