Can he mend the heart he broke?
Widowed nurse Shona, has returned to the safety and familiarity of her Scottish childhood home. Getting roped into playing Chief Elf to lifeboat crew leader Alasdair’s Santa wasn’t part of the plan. But his delicious smile has the power to tempt her… She still hasn’t forgiven the reformed bad boy for once betraying her heart, could he now be the one to rebuild it?
I received a copy of this book from Mills and Boon via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
Stories set on Scottish Islands are very popular with their sense of community. Shona returns to her island home, a widow to live with her sister and work at the medical facility. She’s dreaded meeting her first love, who left her heartbroken and humiliated, but when she does, he appears to have changed, but she is still wary. The festive theme is central to this medical romance and introduces the community. It gives the couple a chance to get to know each other again.
Shona undergoes an emotional journey to forgive and understand Alasdair. He is similarly conflicted, wondering if he deserves a chance of happiness with Shona. Thankfully the elf and Santa overcome their emotional barriers, and the story ends happily.
This lovely festive romance is full of laughter and poignancy.
