Christmas at Aunt Elsie's
Christmas at Aunt Elsie's

A distant relative. A blizzard. A Christmas of surprises.

Lottie Short isn’t looking forward to Christmas. Her boyfriend has decided their relationship has run its course and she’s also lost her job. Now Lottie and her beloved spaniel, Merry, are going to have to face the festive season – and a bleak future, alone.

But a Christmas card and round-robin letter from a distant relative give Lottie hope. And as the first snowflakes fall, she’s on her way to Seahorse Harbour to visit her distant aunt. She’ll spend a few days in a cosy B&B and get some bracing, sea air. That might lift her spirits.

What Lottie doesn’t plan for is a blizzard, or Merry needing treatment from the local vet, Asher Bryant. Lottie will have to stay in the tiny seaside village for longer than expected. But at least there’s a warm welcome at her aunt’s cottage … and a roaring, log fire in the village pub.

That’s not all that might bring a rosy glow to Lottie’s cheeks this festive season. Asher’s pretty hot and so are one or two of the other visitors at Seahorse Harbour. This holiday might be better than she hoped.

And when Lottie gets more than one surprise this Christmas, perhaps she and Merry won’t be spending the New Year on their own.

This is book 2 in my new series of standalone novels set in the tiny, seaside village of Seahorse Harbour.
