Christmas in Cornwall is just around the corner…

But after last Christmas revealed a shocking family secret, Scarlett’s hardly feeling merry and bright. All she wants this Christmas is to know who her real father is.

So Scarlett heads to the little Cornish town of Porthmellow, where she believes the truth of her birth is hidden. She just didn’t bargain on being drawn into the Christmas festival preparations – or meeting Jude Penberth, whose charm threatens to complicate life further.

Everything will come to a head at Porthmellow’s Christmas Festival …

But can Scarlett have the perfect Christmas this year, or are there more surprises on the way?

There are more secrets in this book than in the files of MI5! I loved the premise, the DNA test, but let this book serve as a warning - sometimes cans of worms may be opened, lol.

There are strong messages in the story - forgiveness, understanding, honesty, charity - and all of them were wrapped up in a very satisfying way. Two Christmases, two very different outcomes and a large dollop of feelgood festive cheer.
