My Rating: 5 out of 5
Runaway bride Frankie Ashford hops a plane to Norway with one goal in mind – find her estranged mother and make peace with the past. But when a slip on the ice in Oslo lands her directly in Jonas Thorsen’s viking-strong arms, her single-minded focus drifts away in the winter winds.
When it comes to romance Jonas knows that anything he and Frankie share has an expiration date – the British heiress has a life to return to in London that’s a world away from his own. But family is everything to Jonas and, as the one man who can help Frankie find the answers she’s seeking, he’ll do whatever it takes to help her reunite with her mother.
Now, as Christmas draws closer and the northern lights work their magic Frankie and Jonas will have to make a choice…play it safe or risk heartbreak to take a chance on love.
We are introduced to the character of Frankie straight away in the storyline, who has literally just run out of her own wedding. Frankie knows that she does not want to marry Rolo, despite her over-bearing grandmother telling her she will be set-up for life by marrying into such a has been a notable family. Not knowing where to go, or what to do, Frankie heads to the airport and to Norway in search of her estranged mother.
Frankie finds herself in Norway, and after a bot of soul-searching, decides to make that very big step and find her mother, who left Frankie when she was just a very small child. She discovers the art gallery that her mother owns, and there she also discovers the very handsome Jonas, who works for Frankie’s mum in the art gallery.
Jonas is desperate to get mother and daughter reunited, but in the process, he realises he has fallen head over heels in love with Frankie. Will Frankie feel the same, and can there be any future for them with Joans living in Norway and Frankie living in England?
I completely loved this book, the storyline was so heartwarming and all the characters were so likeable (except possibly Frankie’s grandmother) but towards the end of the story, I even started to warm to her a bit more! I would recommend reading this book to anyone. I can not wait to read more from the fantastic Darcie Boleyn.
