Christmas at The Cove by Rachel Brimble


Rachel Brimble brings you the perfect winter romance to warm your hearts with Christmas at the Cove! The romance author will be doing the rounds with reviews, a guest post and a hefty giveaway. 

What They say:  

More family for Christmas?

Scott Walker doesn't have time for a relationship. The sexy mechanic has career ambitions, not to mention a mother and three sisters to take care of. The last thing he needs is Carrie Jameson, the beauty he never forgot, arriving in Templeton Cove over the holidays with some unexpected news. Scott still finds Carrie irresistible, and he's not one to shirk responsibility. Scott's issues with his own dad make the prospect of parenthood a minefield. But if he and Carrie can overcome their fears, this Christmas could bring them the best gift of all.    

What I Say:

I would like to thank Candle Lit Author Services and Rachel Brimble for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Carrie and Scott had a brief fling three years ago, they both decided they didn't want it to go any further.

Three years later Carrie is back in Templeton Cove, having promised her dying husband she would return.  Carrie's return is a shock to Scott and the pair needed to have a conversation neither of them are really ready for.

Templeton Cove is a lovely town but sometimes a small town everyone knows everyone else's buisness and begin to interfere.

The tension and electricity between the pair fizzled all through the book, with neither of the quite willing to admit their feelings.  It takes their mothers to force the issue.

I liked Carrie, although I didn't agree with the decision she made to not tell Scott about Bella, I can understand why she didn't tell him.  The basis for any relationship is love and trust, Carrie never waited to find out if she could trust Scott.  

Scott on the other hand became tied down with what he thought were his responsibilities, pushing his own life and feelings to the back of everything else.

Will Scott and Carrie manage to sort everything out in time for Christmas?


  About The Author

 Rachel Brimble

I live with my fantastic husband, our two young daughters and my beloved black Labrador, Max in a small market town near the famous Georgian City of Bath.  Having always ‘played’ with writing, I didn’t seriously sit down and write toward publication until I became pregnant with my second daughter – then I told myself to get my butt in the chair and get on with it before she grows up and I’m forced to get a real job! Lots of short stories followed as did lots of rejections!  I took a few distance learning courses, joined some online writers groups and basically, learned my craft.  Finally deciding short stories weren’t working for me (they are an art form in themselves!), in 2006 I decided to embark on my first novel and voila Searching For Sophie was born!  Since then, my other books have followed each year. And when I’m not writing? You’ll find me with my head in a book or walking the beautiful English countryside with my family.  And in the evening?  Well, a well-deserved glass of wine is never, ever refused.
