Lots of yes: reunited lovers, snowbound over Christmas, being friends while tentatively repairing and extending their once broken trust in each other and themselves. This is the third book I've read by Cudmore, and I've quickly become a fan. Her stories are deeply romantic not because of tropes or angst or romantic fantasy, but because her character work is focused and nuanced, and in every book, it's been a joy watching her protagonists discover emotional honesty in themselves and each other.

A delightful holiday reunion! The magical setting of a castle decked out in Christmas delight is quick to whisk you into the holiday mindset. The characters were compelling, and I found myself following their story and hoping for a repair of the damage life did to their hearts years ago. Really liked Ciara and Tom together!

Years ago, teenage Ciara Harris and Tom Benson were the best of friends growing up around his family's castle and estate. Their young hearts drifted towards each other and the

Ciara and Tom reunite after years of not seeing each other. They had a past affair. Young love. She was an employee of Loughmore Castle. She still is. He came down to sell it. She’s trying to save it for the other employees and the town. They still feel the passion. This book is about second chances and to get over the heartache of the past secret. It’s a well written and a feel good book.

A lovely second-chance-at-love/Cinderella story. Tom is particularly nice as the hero, but with slight feet of clay. Enjoyed this, nice and festive as well.
