Let It Snow - Beth Moran || Review


Curl up with the perfect cosy read and the latest novel by the bestselling author of Just the Way You Are.

After the end of a long-term relationship, local weather girl Bea Armstrong has been avoiding her family, and their inevitable ‘I-told-you-sos.’ But with Christmas fast approaching, she is finally on her way home to Charis House, the school in Sherwood Forest that her mum and dad run in their old family home. And to top it all off, the insufferable Henry Fairfax – who her parents have always wanted her to marry – has also been invited.

Relief comes in the shape of a last-minute interview for her dream job. There are just a few minor problems… The interview is in Scotland, Bea has no car, and the snow is falling already. The only solution is for Henry to drive her – could this Christmas get any worse…

But during an unforgettable two-day interview, a stay in a log cabin and a nightmare journey through the snow, Henry turns out to be nothing like she thought. And when Bea’s first love and recent ex shows up, Bea has a difficult choice to make…

Rounding off my festive reads was Beth Moran and I couldn't have picked a better author to be fair. Let It Snow follows local weather girl Bea who is heading home for the first family Christmas in a while after splitting for the final time from her long-term boyfriend she has been avoiding them, but it's time to face the music so she heads home.

Returning to the family home she finds it already chaotic and planned down to the minute and to make matters worse, Henry Fairfax has been invited, her family and his always believed they would marry, and forcing a relationship upon them has made matters worse. However, when a job interview arises it seems like the perfect escape for Bea - until Henry ends up driving her. 

Honestly, this book was just lovely, delightful in parts slightly bonkers but it just overall warmed my heart. I loved Bea - she was just lovely, she stood up for her beliefs when it came to it, she supported her community, and showed even in chaos family is really what matters. I loved getting to know Henry - Henry who was geeky and almost like an automated robot at school to Bea. Seeing their relationship change as they were adults was fantastic to read.

Throw in a big festive family gathering and you just know some sort of drama is going to occur, and it did - more than once but everything felt like a natural occurrence, not something just thrown in for effect. That's why I enjoyed this so much. It was relatable, it was real and the characters were flawed. We certainly saw Beas flaws and she had her moments and faults but that's what makes great characters.

The descriptive nature of the book along with the writing style made this such an easy book to dip into and loose yourself in for a good whilst. A great first read to the year and i awarded it 4*

Beth Moran initially worked as a biochemist and then taught antenatal classes before becoming an author. She loves to write contemporary women`s fiction set in and around Sherwood Forest, where she lives with her family
