Christmas at Lock Keeper’s Cottage by Lucy Coleman **Book Review** @rararesources

Happy weekend all!

Is it ever too early for Christmas books? This book got me in the holiday mood even though it’s 100° out and the skies are filled with smoke.🧝🏻‍♀️

Christmas at Lock Keeper’s Cottage

Join us for Christmas in the Cotswolds in this perfect festive escape, from the bestselling Lucy Coleman.

Imogen Tolliman never knew her mother. And when an accident robs Immi of her father too, she goes to live with her grandfather, Tollie, in his picturesque lock-keeper’s cottage by the Aysbury marina. 

Tollie is the star of the Santa Ahoy Special each Christmas – a festive boat ride along the canal that enthralls both children and adults alike. And as Immi grows up, she starts to appreciate the magical community she is lucky enough to live in. 

When Immi meets Gray Adams, she instantly realises he’s someone special. And as their relationship gets serious, they start to plan for the Christmas to beat all Christmases.  

But as the day approaches, and the romantic snow showers turn into blizzards, their dream of a Christmas to remember, looks set to be one they’ll never forget – for all the wrong reasons. Can they salvage the festivities, or will old secrets that are finally uncovered turn Immi’s life upside down forever?

Let Lucy Coleman transport you away to a dreamy Cotswolds Christmas full of snowflakes and secrets, log fires, mistletoe, friends and much-loved traditions. Perfect for all fans of Trisha Ashley, Holly Martin and Sue Moorcroft. 

My Thoughts

Secrets and Santa. Lucy Coleman’s heartwarming storytelling transports you into the lives of her charming characters. Immi has lost both her parents and goes to live with her beloved grandfather Tully in a small Scottish Village. The community welcomes Immi with open arms. Now it is Christmas and Immi is the perfect elf to her grandfather’s Santa on festive boat cruises. Immi is determined to bring festive cheer to the entire community which leads to chaos and questions. Loved this story and all the colorful characters. I might have found the story a bit more magical if we weren’t in the middle of a heat wave and the sky wasn’t filled with smoke, but it was nice to be whisked away to a winter wonderland. A festive holiday story sprinkled with romance, friendship, and mistletoe.
