A wonderful Christmas story from Kirsty Ferry.

How far would you go to be with the one you love at Christmas?

The Isle of Skye is a magical place, especially at Christmas, and there’s no place Zac Fallon would rather be. But whilst Zac has everything he needs on Skye, there’s still something missing – and that something is a somebody called Ivy McFarlane.

Ivy used to work with Zac but then spread her wings and moved to Glastonbury. He’s missed her ever since. Now it’s almost Christmas and Zac realises that the Ivy shaped hole in his life is too big to bear. So starts his festive mission to the mainland – but will he be back in time to spend Christmas in Skye? And, more importantly, will Ivy be with him?

    The magical atmosphere of this Christmas tale (set mostly during the Winter Solstice in Glastonbury, not on Skye!) was a real treat. It was so easy to read, the words seemed to tumble into my brain, making it easy to feel the feels. It is a tantalisingly tense will-they-won’t-they romance, peppered with misdirected and misinformed meanness, insecure love, and a large dollop of Solstice shimmer. Will great friends speak their minds and close the circle …?

    The Christmas season is nearly upon us, and this is the perfect book to read beside a roaring fire with warm mulled wine and a blanket. Split between the stunning Isle of Skye and Glastonbury, the pages are filled with love and the magic of Christmas. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, but, on the other hand, you can’t separate what is meant to be.

    This Christmas story is so good you will only need your stash of chocolate to make a perfect read! Ivy and Zac are the self inflicted separated couple and this is the story of how they try to reunite. Trials and tribulations a plenty keep you involved in their story. It is a stand alone book despite being part of a series. Happy Christmas.

    I loved this story from the very first chapter. Zac and Ivy are both wonderful characters that you really care about and want to be happy. But can they truly find happiness when Zac won’t leave the Isle of Skye and Ivy is trying to create a new life in Glastonbury? Highly recommend!

    Ideal for a relaxing read.

    Zac has desperately missed his friend and colleague Ivy for months since she moved away from the Isle of Skye to follow her dream of working and living in Glastonbury. Now it’s almost Christmas and Zac has made up his mind there must be a way to convince Ivy to return to him permanently. He just has to decide how to win Ivy.

    A sweet story about a shy, but determined, man’s attempt to woo the woman of his dreams.

    A lovely Christmas story which left me feeling warm & happy.
    Its about Zac who misses Ivy who used to work for him in the Tea Shop he runs on the Isle of Skye. She is now living in Glastonbury trying to make a go of her jewellery business but wishes she was back in Skye with Zac. Zac misses her too but they are both too shy to tell each other how they feel. He also mistakenly thinks that Ivy & Gid are an item.
    Ivy shares her workplace with the horrible Morgana who scares away Ivy’s customers.
    Can Ivy & Zac get together for Christmas?

    I’ve loved the Tempest Sisters stories and so happy when I found out about a new story, this time about the lovely Zac and its based around Christmas time too, win win! That being said, this book could be read as a stand alone at any time of year as the references in the book to the other characters are minimal.

    Ivy worked for Zac on the Isle of Skye however had a deep desire to succeed in Glastonbury – Zac missed her terribly and likewise Ivy didn’t want to admit she’d made a terrible mistake, this, along with a couple of misunderstandings, would they ever get it together ! A sweet story, thoroughly recommend.

    This story is a bit of a sidetrack in the Tempest Sisters series, as it involves Zac, Angel Tempest’s best friend, who lives in Skye, and Ivy, who worked for him, but went off to seek her fortune in Glastonbury. Zac is missing her like crazy, and despite hating visiting the mainland, he drives down to Glastonbury just before Christmas to see her. Several misunderstandings, mistaken assumptions and other assorted hiccups follow – will they get their happy Christmas?
    I was a little surprised not to come across Kirsty’s trademark time slip happenings and maybe a little disappointed too – though I was never much of a fan of that style before Ms Ferry! I have no doubt the book will be just as much of a success as all the others – I enjoyed it and have no hesitation in recommending it.
