Summary

A sparkling Christmas listen from the Sunday Times best seller - perfect to snuggle up with this winter! 

Hannah and Nico are meant to be together. 

But fate is keeping them apart.

As soon as Hannah bumps into her brother Rob’s best friend, Nico, in Stockholm, the two rekindle a fast friendship. But Hannah has a boyfriend - and Nico has two children to look after.

When Hannah loses her beloved shop in Stockholm, though, she is forced to move back to the little village of Middledip - only to find Nico has just moved in, too. Under the same snowy sky, can the childhood friends make a romance work - or are there too many obstacles standing in their way?

A heartwarming story of love, friendship and Christmas magic, perfect for fans of Trisha Ashley and Jill Mansell.

Audio editing required on this excellent story!

The story is easy and pleasant. But the narrator speaks irritatingly slow, getting even slower when pronouncing Swedish words. Almost as if the characters were drugged or half asleep. I ended up turning the audio speed to 1.2x normal. This made the listening much better, although the girls' voices tended to sound rather shrill.
All in all a good story, spoiled by the narrating.

A Perfect Way to Escape

If you only fall in love with one fictional character this Christmas then it has to be Nico in this excellent Christmas story by Sue Moorcroft. The tale is utterly believable and all too easy to lose yourself in. The characters are well drawn from the youngest to the oldest. This really is a book worth reading.
It is very well narrated by Julia Winwood.

Nice book but that’s it

Despite other reviews I liked the narrator APART from the too slow pronunciation of Swedish locations & the really annoying children voices (almost quit due to the screeching). Also only gave 3stars for the story as both main characters were not likeable. Spoiler alert…bulimic indecisive bloke (but apparently gorgeous looking hockey player) and overly sensitive a bit simple woman (confident one minute and next almost ready to jump from the cliff) were not likeable and not likely in my opinion. Maybe a harsh review but that’s how I feel after just finishing it.

An interesting story, albeit a bit dragged out at times. Julia Winwood made it a very easy listen.
