'The perfect winter heart-warmer' Cathy Kelly
Christmas is around the corner, and the residents of Lissbeg are beginning preparations for the festive season.
Cassie Fitzgerald, newly arrived from Toronto, is enchanted by the small Irish town where her dad was born. But the more involved she becomes in daily life there, the more questions she wants to ask.
Are her sweet-tempered grandmother Pat and Pat's miserly husband Ger keeping secrets from each other? And what happened in the past between Cassie's family and the redoubtable Mary Casey?
And then there's Shay -- handsome, charming, and intent on making Cassie's stay fun and exciting. But is he the one for her?
As Christmas Eve approaches, Cassie realises that Lissbeg's community is in danger of forgetting that love, family and friendship bring the real magic to the festive season. And maybe they need an outsider to remind them...
