happy Friday all!
A Christmas Wedding At The Castle (Life on the Moors Book 5)
Do you believe in fate? Livvie Weatherill does…
This time last year, if anyone had told Livvie Weatherill she’d have fallen in love and would be making plans for her Christmas wedding to Zander Gillespie, she would have laughed in their face. If they’d gone on to say they’d be planning to have their wedding at the imposing Danskelfe Castle, she’d have laughed even louder!
But it would seem fate had plans for her…
Since moving to the pretty moorland village of Lytell Stangdale Livvie is happier than she’s ever been. She’s living with Zander and she’s working at her dream job as a wedding dress designer at Romantique with her friends, Kitty and Violet. It’s fair to say, she’s enjoying immersing herself in village life, from romantic walks in the countryside, to meeting friends at the quaint Sunne Inne. And she can’t think of anything better than rounding off the day cosying up with Zander.
Life is sweet.
Her blossoming friendship with Freda Easton, the endearing but reclusive elderly lady who lives down the lane, has taken everyone by surprise. But Freda has a secret and, in a turn of events no one could predict, she finds herself grateful for Livvie’s fierce loyalty, cementing their friendship further.
Just when things seem to be running smoothly, a face from the past arrives on the doorstep casting a shadow over Livvie’s wedding plans. Adding to the drama, an icy blast of Arctic air brings heavy snowfall to the village, covering the moors in a thick blanket of snow.
Is their love strong enough to withstand the challenges thrown at them? Will they get their magical Christmas wedding?
Join Livvie and Zander – and all the usual characters – for a sparkling Christmas full of love and laughter in Lytell Stangdale.
A castle, Christmas, and a wedding dress. Eliza J. Scott swept me away to Lytell Stangdale with her festive storytelling. Last Christmas Miss Scott introduced us to Livvie and Zander, this Christmas she is inviting us to their wedding. It was fun getting reacquainted with this couple along with multiple other residence of this charming village. But not going to lie I was most excited to see Alf the dog again. Livvie is excitedly planning her wedding, so thrilled to have it at the local castle. But Zander is acting strangely and she is beginning to think he’s hiding something from her. But Zander is not the only person with secrets. Frita The village recluse who has become more friendly with Livvie has a story to tell. Secrets… wedding plans… a hen do… a tiara… cheeky beef… chocolate…
this book was so much fun! I just love all these characters! Even though the story is set at Christmas time it really was friendship heavy and Christmas light. I love the camaraderie and support between the females in this book. I would have loved to join them at this hen do/bachelorette party, the theme was right in my wheelhouse. also really liked the little bit of mystery in the book and how that all played out. this was another delightful installment in the series and I cannot wait to visit Lytell Stangdale again.
