Review - Winter Wishes (Polwenna By Book 3) by Ruth Saberton

Is it really better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all?

Tara Tremaine is a woman with a mission – to pick up the pieces of a life she turned her back on and win back her estranged husband, Danny. Nothing will stand in Tara’s way, least of all the dangerous secret that drove them apart or Danny’s growing feelings for another woman…

Since arriving in Polwenna Bay hardworking vicar Jules Mathieson has put duty above her own heart. Jules adores her new life by the sea and secretly loves troubled war veteran, Danny Tremaine. When Tara returns Jules knows stepping away from him is the right thing to do, no matter how much it hurts.

Danny Tremaine’s world has been shattered. With life-changing injuries, a broken marriage and his glittering military career abruptly over, he returns to the family home to a rebuild his broken body and heart. Danny knows his friendship with Jules could blossom into more but allowing this to happen will come at a very high price - one that could cost him everything.

With Christmas fast approaching Jules, Danny and Tara are not the only people in the village with secrets and long cherished dreams. Maybe with a little seasonal magic, some winter wishes really will come true?

I would like to thank Ruth Saberton for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I've got to say I've been waiting to read this book for months, especially when Ruth told me Jules and Danny would be the main characters in this book.  Ruth really pulls at the heart strings with this story.  In the beginning, I wanted to hate Danny's wife Tara especially as she wanted Danny back., Jules thought that it would be for the best if they made a go of their marriage despite Danny telling her it was over. 

I love all the characters in these books and really look forward to catching up with them with each installment.  I love the drama that Ruth interweaves into the story around the village of Polwenna Bay.  Reading this is like catching up with old friends and there are lots of lovely people in Polwenna and some not so nice.

Once again, I loved Danny's son Morgan and he is one of my favourite characters of the whole books.  Danny isn't the usual handsome hero, he has been injured in the army, but Ruth makes it clear that although his accident has changed him his is still a hero.

A fantastic addition to the series and can't wait to read the next book.  Once I started this book I would say I will read another chapter and ended up staying up until three am.

Ruth Saberton always knew she wanted to be a writer. From an early age she was busy filling note books with stories and rather than hero worshipping Wham and Duran Duran (which ages her!) Ruth's heroes were Jilly Cooper and Jackie Collins. Several attempts at bodice rippers later, Ruth turned her attention to romance and now focuses on writing romantic comedies. Her debut novel, 'Katy Carter Wants a Hero' was championed by Richard and Judy and nominated for the RNA's Romantic Comedy of the Year Award as well as being described by Heat Magazine as, 'the heir apparent to Bridget Jones'. Ruth writes under her own name, but also has several pen names which include Jessica Fox, Georgie Carter, Holly Cavendish and Lucy Hepburn. Her boyfriend says he has many women all rolled into one! 

Ruth is published by Orion, Pan Macmillan, Harper Collins and Notting Hill Press. Although she loves the UK, Ruth now lives in the Caribbean where she continues to write romances, teen novels and planning that bodice ripper! Her latest book, Escape for the Summer, is set in Cornwall but she is currently writing one set on Grand Cayman.

Ruth loves to talk to her readers.
