Summary

Can a trip away lead you home? 

After a bad breakup, eternal optimist Evie Miller has moved to the small village of Willowbrook to finally pursue her dream of opening a craft shop. Unfortunately, with money worries and an ex-boyfriend determined to track her down, her fresh start isn't going entirely to plan. 

Jake Hartwood is also looking to escape his past. Haunted by the loss of his wife, he's determined not to get close to anyone again - and the last thing he wants is to be celebrating this December. 

Hoping to avoid the festivities, Evie and Jake arrange to escape Christmas together as friends in Provence. But will the magic of the season change things between them? 

And what happens if one of them starts to feel something more?

Tripe

Slushy & dull. Littered with use of stereotypical working class accents, which annoyed the hell out of me.

Gave up at the end. Bad character. Too rigid and repetitive
