My Review: Wonderful, warm and engaging. I loved this book and fully enjoyed Clara’s journey. Her stepsister Lois is dating Rory, whom Clara is in love with. We come across secret love, creepy Russian Dolls some incredible twists and turns, shock revelations and family bonds. Some pretty sweet horses too and their plop lol. Loved every sentiment of this book, which is easy to follow and has some very funny moments.

A Winter Wish, Little Duck Pond Café

With her new-found happiness unexpectedly crushed, Clara is struggling to move forward. It’s hard – especially with step-sister Lois bouncing around the place with joy and making all sorts of plans for the future. And when the household is shocked by a mysterious break-in and a neighbour makes a shocking accusation, Clara finds herself in an impossible position. It’s a situation that threatens to destroy her blossoming romance almost before it’s begun . . .
