No, seriously, please Let It Snow!! It’s far too warm here in the midwest and we need our snow for the crops in the spring. While I’m waiting for the snow that is forecast for later in the week, I’ve been re-reading Let It Snow by one of my very favorite authors, Sue Moorcroft. Published earlier this year and set during the holidays, now is the perfect time to read this delightful tale.
For Lily, family is everything. She has two loving moms and a sister, Zinnia who have been her world. Told that her birth father was a one night stand, Lily is shocked to discover he actually was married at the time and more than just a fling her mother had one night. Now Lily is determined to find her father on a journey that will take her to our favorite Moorcroft town, Middledip, and on a road trip to Switzerland for a holiday market and more.
There always IS more with a Moorcroft book which is why I adore her so very much. Secondary story lines often become my favorite parts of her stories and this one is no different. While there is a romance, of course, the romance isn’t the primary focus of the book – Lily’s journey of discovery, the tangled family webs that go with blended families and the “fall out” from finding siblings no one knew of until adulthood. With creative writing, well developed characters and a road trip through Europe, Moorcroft has, once again, created people and places that are unforgettable.
This is a great winter read, one I’m sure you will enjoy. I have – twice over!
