Luke and Elana both have a broken heart. Luke's wife has left him and she hardly lets Luke see his son. He misses him and wants nothing more than to spend time with his little boy. While Luke is trying to fix the chimney and do other necessary repairs in time for Maya to send her Christmas letters to Santa he and Elana grow closer together. There's an age difference between them, Elana is ten years older than Luke, will that matter and will their friendship get a chance to develop or is it too soon after everything they've been through?
Christmas at Bay Tree Cottage is a beautiful story about love, loss, second chances and family. Elana and Luke have one thing in common, their kids always come first. They try to provide for their family, they want their children to be happy and they're putting the happiness of their little ones before their own. I admired their dedication and loved that they are such wonderful parents. They're kindhearted and gentle people and they have a gorgeous pure bond, but the age difference and the many insecurities life brings are making it difficult for both of them to take the next step. I flew through the pages and couldn't wait to find out if life would be kind to them again or not.
Linn B. Halton has a lovely warm writing style. I love how I can always feel the emotions she writes about. She tells stories with her whole heart, which makes them a joy to read. I can't help but admire her main characters, they always have the most special personalities and their actions move me to tears. Christmas at Bay Tree Cottage captivated me from the start. It's an impressive story about the magic of Christmas and the healing power of love. I loved the very important message Linn B. Halton has for her readers, that it's very important to listen to your heart. I highly recommend this fantastic irresistible story, it's the perfect Christmas read and so much more.
Heartwarming and and easily believable book that you could see your neighbors experiencing. After the death of her husband Elana James is a grieving widow with a young daughter. At the time of her husband's death work was not complete on the cottage she bought with her husband,Bay Tree Cottage. As she saves up the money she piece by piece gets the repairs done on her cottage. Luke works for his dad's construction company and agrees to do work for her at off peak times and charge her a cheaper price than the going rate. He's just happy to have the work since he's paying child support for his young little boy, Joey he has. Elana is happy to have Luke doing the work for her even at unconventional hours like dinner time and in the evening. She makes him dinner a lot of evenings while he's working then they go into her sitting room and discuss house repair plans. She is very professional about this and there is no hint of a romance brewing at all. Luke starts thinking he just may need Elana in his life in a romantic way but is afraid to show her that as she may not think the timing is right. Elana's daughter, really needs Luke to finish the chimney work before Christmas so her her oh so important letters can get to Santa. Smart,capable and good looking Luke delivers too. No little girl being disappointed in this story! Bring in the fact that Elana is 10 years older than Luke and has more worldly experience you can see where her hesitation to start a romance stems from after all this woman is no cougar. The heart doesn't always hear what the head is thinking though!
Wonderful feel good book.

Thank you to NetGalley and HarperCollins UK, HarperImpulse for a review copy in exchange for my honest review.
This was one of those books where the characters won my heart from the opening pages, and made me really care about them. Many of you will be aware of my occasional aversion to children in books, but I would have perfectly happily cuddled both Elana’s daughter Alexa and Luke’s little son Joe. Mind you, I’d have been fairly happy to cuddle Luke too – what a lovely guy! And what’s a little unusual about this book is that we hear Luke’s voice and perspective every bit as clearly as we hear that of Elana, and if there were ever two damaged people who more deserved to find a happy ending, I haven’t come across them yet.
All the relationships in this book are just so beautifully drawn – mother/daughter for Elana and Alexa, father/son for Luke and Joe, the warmth and intensity of every contact between Luke and Elana, but all the wider ones too with the extended family, friends, love interests, and slightly difficult neighbours. The author’s flair for interiors comes into play in the renovation of Bay Tree Cottage – I’m looking for red fairy lights now to put among my logs, and nervously tapping my plaster – and there’s even a little touch of her familiar magic which brought a little tear to my eye. Heavens above, there’s even a kitten!
I loved this book – and should you have space on your Christmas reading list, I’d highly recommend it to all.
