A Winter Kiss on Rochester Mews by Annie Darling, fourth in the Lonely Hearts Bookshop series
If you haven’t discovered the Lonely Hearts Bookshop series yet, what are you doing with your life? It’s perfect for anyone who likes gentle romance, and they’re all quick reads so you can catch up in time to finish A Winter Kiss on Rochester Mews before the end of Christmas if you hurry!
This is the series’ Christmas novel, featuring Mattie, a one-time aspiring pastry chef who runs the café at the bookshop, and her slow-burn romance with Tom, the shop’s sole man bookseller, a PhD student who has remained a grumpy mystery throughout all three previous books. I loved it – they’re both really engaging characters. Although it’s set at Christmas, both Mattie and Tom are Christmas haters so if you are not a Christmas person you may still enjoy this, and emphasize with their grumpiness! If you are a Christmas person don’t worry there’s still lots of festive fun, including parties and decorating!
