When Vera returns to her home town of Addison Cove for her sister Brooke’s wedding, she has no idea what is going to happen to her next. She has lost her job at the newspaper in Boston, and uncertainty is definitely darkening the days ahead.
But on her way out of town, she notices an old Dutch Colonial farmhouse for sale….and the next thing she knows, she is buying it with the severance money she received.
Her sister thinks she’s foolish, but Vera believes that sometimes investing in a dream is the best thing to do.
What does Vera learn on the way to fixing up the old house? Who does she meet that changes her view of her old home town? And what secret treasures does she discover that help her create still another dream?
Snowflakes and Coffee Cakes is so much like the author’s previous works, which I also loved, in that the settings are gorgeous, the characters are at a crossroads and taking a chance on a dream, and the romance feels magical.
As always, the author shows us the world in which the characters live and makes us want to stay with them through their magical holiday season, enjoying the gifts of love and sharing. Five stars.
