She studied media at university which led to a very glitzy career as a hotel receptionist followed by a even more glamorous two years working in a bank. The moment that one of her colleagues received the much coveted carriage clock for fifteen years’ service was the moment when she knew she had to escape. She quit her job and returned to university to train to be a teacher. Three years later, she emerged wide eyed and terrified that she now had responsibility for the development of thirty young minds.

Absolutely loved it
Christmas at Mistletoe Cove by Holly Martin
"It certainly isn't Christmas unless there is a Holly Martin book, and this has surpassed expectations. Dougie is one of the most romantic heroes that I have read about, and it was only a few pages in when I fell head over heels in love with him.

“Life is short and precious and we never know what is around the corner. So you live for now, seize every moment that comes your way and if you're going to look back on your life with regret, it's easier to regret the things that you did do, rather than the things you didn't”
Holly Martin, Fairytale Beginnings

“Romance isn’t always about big gestures though,’ Harry said. ‘Sometimes it’s the words the man finds or the effort that he has gone to. It doesn’t have to be something expensive.”
Holly Martin, One Hundred Proposals

“Why do silences mean something different when we're with different people? With you, it's never awkward, is it? It's just silence. But with other people, I feel the need to fill it with inane ramblings. What's wrong with silence?”
Holly Martin, Snowflakes on Silver Cove
