Book Review: Christmas Secrets at Snowflake Cove by Emily Harvale

Christmas Secrets at Snowflake Cove by Emily Harvale
Published November 1st 2017
Christmas is a time for family and friends, miracles and magic, falling snow and roaring fires, fun, laughter and festive feasts. In Snowflake Cove, it’s also a time for secrets to be revealed…
Evie Starr is hoping for more than a sprinkling of magic this Christmas. The family-run Snowflake Inn is virtually empty and the Starr’s financial future isn’t looking bright. But Evie’s gran, Jessie has a secret that might help.
Enigmatic, Zachary Thorn is every woman’s dream. He’s also ex-SAS, so his secrets are classified. The Christmas Special of his feel-good, TV show is set in Michaelmas Bay – until a phone call means he’s spending Christmas in nearby Snowflake Cove.
Evie’s best friend, Juniper thinks boyfriend Darren has a secret. Evie knows he does. And Evie’s niece, Raven is hiding feelings for Juniper’s brother – who has a secret crush of his own.
But the biggest secret in Snowflake Cove is the identity of Raven’s dad. With snow falling thick and fast and secrets being revealed one after another, will everyone be snuggling up by the fire on Christmas Eve, or are some secrets best kept hidden…?
You know I love Christmas, so Christmas Secrets at Snowflake Cove is the perfect sweet and fun Christmas story, full of family time, kisses and the happiness of Christmas.

It wasn't a very long story, so I felt like there could be more about this family and the principal characters, Evie and Zachary. Their romance was kind of quick, but it was ok for me because I wanted to read something light. But there where a few 'problems' that I was waiting for the family to resolve and they didn't, at least not in this book. Maybe in the next of the series?

Overall, I think Christmas Secrets at Snowflake Cove is great if you want to start feeling like Christmas is all around ;) I'm definitely preparing for this Christmas, although this year my husband and I will be away from our family. It's kind of sad because we miss them, but at the same time an opportunity to spend it together just the two of us.

What are you doing for this Christmas? Will you have snow? We don't have snow in Medellin, but probably lots of rain.

Movie Review: Thor Ragnarok

Movie Review: Thor Ragnarok

You know I love superheroes, and Thor is definitely one of my favorites. I always thought his story was interesting and it had more potential than what we saw on the previous films.

I did like the previous two films of Thor, but Thor Ragnarok is my favorite. It has a different rhythm than the other movies, it was funnier, the soundtrack was amazing, but also we had more opportunities to get to know the real Thor. I liked his personality, it was the first time he talked so much and it gave us the possibility to also know more about this brother Loki and their complicated relationship, Hulk, and the new kick ass character, Valkyrie. Also, the new villain is Hela, a super powerful woman who really makes it more interesting and difficult for this new team to try to save Asgard.

The film had a few surprises for the marvel superheroes fans and the ending, as always, left us impatiently waiting for the next Marvel movie.
