Holly Martin is back with not one but two Christmas books this year! And they are both set in a town called Christmas, how magic is this? Today I'm reviewing the second book, Christmas under a Starlit Sky, which was published last week. Have a look at what of I thought of the first one, Christmas under a Cranberry Sky, here.
Title: Christmas under a Starlit Sky (A Town Called Christmas #2)
Author: Holly Martin
Published: October 20th 2016 by Bookouture
Neve Whitaker loves managing the Stardust Lake hotel. She gets to work alongside her wonderful family and she’s spending Christmas on the most enchanting, snow-covered island in Scotland. So why is her heart so heavy this festive season?
It might have something to do with the gorgeous actor Oakley Rey, the man she finished with before he left for California and the man she loves more than anything. With Oakley’s career in Hollywood soaring, Neve is convinced she’d only hold him back. She had to end it with him – at least that’s what she keeps telling herself.
But now she has a secret she’s struggling to keep, and when Oakley arrives on Juniper Island determined to win her back, Neve is thrown off balance. Will Neve’s fear of having her heart broken again push Oakley away for good, or is it time for her to take a leap of faith?
Get swept away by this deliciously sweet and heartwarming tale, and spend an unforgettable Christmas on Juniper Island.
Review: Last month I read Christmas Under a Cranberry Sky and fell in love with the setting. I would love to go to Juniper Island and stay in a glass igloo to enjoy the Northern Lights. So I was really excited to be back there with this new story. If you haven't read the first book, you can read this one anyway as it's a brand new story but I'd recommend reading both books as they are both fantastic.
Actually, I think this one is even better than the first. I loved every tiny detail of this story. It's romantic, fun, warm and really interesting. The story focuses in Neve Whitaker, who broke up with actor Oakley Rey because she thought she was not good enough for him. Oakley himself though doesn't agree and has traveled to this remote island to win her back. Their story was full of secrets, surprises and unexpected announcements and had me completely glued to its pages.
But they are not the only possible couple in the story. Gorgeous Adam has come to the island to help Neve and the last thing he wants right now is a relationship... But Juniper Island is a magic place and has many surprises in store for him. I really liked Adam as a character and enjoyed his story immensely.
As usual, Holly Martin has created a magical story with original and interesting characters, lots of fun moments and above all, love. I really think that both Christmas under a Cranberry Sky and Christmas under a Starlit Sky are unmissable titles for this Christmas. So just treat yourself with them!
