Just For Christmas - Scarlett Bailey (2013)

Alex Munro never thought that one day she would have to run away from the people she loved so dearly. Always a tomboy Alex is left stunned and devastated when the love of her life and her best friend, Marcus, announces his engagement out of the blue. And to add insult to injury she catches her father in bed with their widowed neighbour. When Alex accepts a job as port master in a Cornish town, she certainly did not expect to share a cold, dingy cottage with a stinky-old dog or keep bumping into the annoyingly hot boat operator Ruan. She doesn't know what is so magical about this town but one thing is for sure, this town has the power to resolve any unresolved issues in her life. This book has more twist and turns than you can ever imagine. I loved the setting - Poldore does seem like a magical place with its deliciously good weather, breathtaking lighthouse and beautiful residents. This is the perfect book to snuggle up with. (SS)

Just for Christmas, by Scarlett Bailey, is about a heartbroken woman looking to be alone at Christmas. The summary says: "When Alex Munro learns that the love of her life is getting married to another girl, all she wants is to be alone - and as far away from Edinburgh as possible. Moving to a Cornish cottage, which comes complete with the world's scruffiest dog, Alex finds that her new neighbours are determined to involve her in their madcap Christmas festivities. Then she meets her sexy neighbour Ruan - and somehow Alex doesn't want to be alone this Christmas after all. But having lost one fiance, Ruan has no intention of letting anyone get close to him again..." Just for Christmas is out in November 2013.
