A Christmas Hideaway

You can't hide from Love
Holly Gilroy was devastated when her long-term boyfriend ran off with Naomi, her best friend. Now Paul and Naomi are back in Hideaway Down for Christmas but Holly has no intention of bumping into the happy couple. Cooking and cleaning for the guests at her Mum's holiday cottages is one way to avoid that. Because she can't let Paul see she's still in love with him... can she?

Gabriel Hardwick is desperate to finish his novel... and avoid his agent, Bryony Dawes - who also happens to be his girlfriend. At least that's what Bryony's still telling everyone. Will Gabriel's decision to spend Christmas alone in a rented holiday cottage finally make Bryony see that it's over between them? And is that really what Gabriel wants?

But they're not the only ones with problems this festive season. It's the coldest winter for years and the villagers and visitors in Hideaway Down are finding warmth in the most unexpected places... and not just from the roaring log fire in the hearth of The Snowdrop Inn.

I'm moving to Hideaway Down!
"I was unsure about the book at the beginning but Emily's usual romp away writing very soon got me going. I loved the village, villagers in equal parts, it and they really got me into the spirit of Christmas, I have to admit that I love Christmas books all through the year. I shall be starting the next Hideaway book as soon as I have put the final full stop in this review. Another happy reader."
A perfect winter read
"I loved this book from the very 1st page and when that happens, I know I'm in for a really good read. This encapsulated all the things I love about winter, snowy weather, romance, warming food and a great village community. 5 lovely stars."
"If you could choose a magical Christmas then Hideaway Down would be the place. A close community who welcome others, a "proper" village with all the amenities and love. Emily's books are real treats so mute all the technology, make a cup of hot chocolate and snuggle up with this book in front of a fire (or Rayburn!) Enjoy!"
