♥ Christmas At The Cove - Rachel Brimble ♥

RachelBannerRachel Brimble brings you the perfect winter romance to warm your hearts with Christmas at the Cove! The romance author will be doing the rounds with reviews, a guest post and a hefty giveaway. 


Scott Walker doesn't have time for a relationship. The sexy mechanic has career ambitions, not to mention a mother and three sisters to take care of. The last thing he needs is Carrie Jameson, the beauty he never forgot, arriving in Templeton Cove over the holidays with some unexpected news.

Scott still finds Carrie irresistible, and he's not one to shirk responsibility. Scott's issues with his own dad make the prospect of parenthood a minefield. But if he and Carrie can overcome their fears, this Christmas could bring them the best gift of all.

This is the first Superromance i have read, and it wont be the last, it was like chick lit, romance with a hint of erotica thrown together and amplified. We meet Scott & Carrie, who meet when Carrie is on a hen weekend with her friends. Scott walks into the bar, and in that instant she knows she has to be with him, throwing caution to the wind the pair opt to spend an evening together indulging in each other, quickly the evening turns to a week and then Carrie leaves.

Fast forward two years and Carrie is returning to templeton to find Scott armed with news, news that she had a baby two years ago, and that she is his. Her husband had recently died and on his death bed Carrie had promised to find Scott and tell him the truth and give him the chance to be the dad to a beautiful baby girl.

Scott hadnt stopped thinking about Carrie since she left Templeton, so when she truns up he isnt sure how to handle it, his first instinct is to tell her to leave, and that he does. But Carrie came with a purpose and she isnt leaving until he at least speaks to her. When she breaks the news that Scott is a father, he isnt sure what he feels. The story then follows as the pair come to terms with news that could change their lives. It isnt just about becoming parents its about forming a life long bond together.

Brimble created a fantastic little community, and i would love to learn more about Templeton and its characters, thats where it fell a little short but then again that wasnt really the focus. The characters were instantly welcomed into my heart, and the book was perfect for snuggling down in bed with. Its a perfect christmas read, everything about the air of the book makes you feel festive despite the little mention of christmas itself, that there is a good sign of a book. I would love to see where the story goes from here i really would


Author Bio

I live with my fantastic husband, our two young daughters and my beloved black Labrador, Max in a small market town near the famous Georgian City of Bath.  Having always ‘played’ with writing, I didn’t seriously sit down and write toward publication until I became pregnant with my second daughter – then I told myself to get my butt in the chair and get on with it before she grows up and I’m forced to get a real job!

Lots of short stories followed as did lots of rejections!  I took a few distance learning courses, joined some online writers groups and basically, learned my craft.  Finally deciding short stories weren’t working for me (they are an art form in themselves!), in 2006 I decided to embark on my first novel and voila Searching For Sophie was born!  Since then, my other books have followed each year.

And when I’m not writing? You’ll find me with my head in a book or walking the beautiful English countryside with my family.  And in the evening?  Well, a well-deserved glass of wine is never, ever refused.

  1. Wow! Thank you for such a fantastic review - such a lovely way to kick off a two-week tour! I am so glad to read how much you liked Templeton Cove as a community - Christmas At The Cove is book 4 in the Templeton series so there are three books prior to this one if you want to meet more residents!

    You've made my day - thank you :)
