Covent Garden in the Snow - by Jules Wake

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:
The perfect Christmas romance for fans of Karen Swan.
Tilly Hunter has fabulous friends, her dream job as a make-up artist with a prestigious opera company and Felix, her kind and caring husband to be. It looks set to be the most perfect Christmas yet!
But when a monumental blunder forces her to work closely with new IT director Marcus Walker, it's not only the roast chestnut stalls on the cobbles of her beloved Covent Garden that cause sparks to fly…
Super serious and brooding, Marcus hasn’t got a creative bone in his sharp-suited body. For technophobe Tilly, it's a match made in hell.
And yet, when Tilly discovers her fiancĂ© isn’t at all what he seems, it's Marcus who's there for her with a hot chocolate and a surprisingly strong shoulder to cry on … He might just be the best Christmas present she’s ever had.

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Covent Garden in the Snow drew me in from the start. First of all, I love the title and the cover. Secondly, it’s set in Covent Garden! Thirdly, it follows Tilly Hunter, who is a make-up artist with a prestigious opera company. I have never really been into operas, but we sang songs from them before and it’s close to musicals, so it was really interesting to read all this background information.

Tilly is engaged to Felix. He is very easy-going, but I just didn’t like him. Anyway, Tilly is kind of forced to work closely with IT director Marcus Walker. The two of them couldn’t be more different, but that’s what made the storyline interesting.
She also discovers something about Felix and her situation with her family is not easy either. There is a lot going on in her life.

I loved getting insights to the opera and I really liked the scenes between Tilly and Marcus. Jules Wake has a great eye for detail and captured the atmosphere around Covent Garden beautifully. The storyline is cute, full of ups and downs and just perfect for Christmas. I very cosy and sweet book.
