Thanks to Miriam at Hachette for sending me this great book to read. Its the sequel to Finding Father Christmas. You can see me review of this book following this review.

I truly loved these two books. Something about reading these books got me into the holiday spirit. If your looking for a great gift idea let me suggest these two books. You won’t be disappointed.

In the previous book I failed to mention that Miranda had met Katharine’s step son Ian. The beginning of the book finds Miranda back in London anxiously awaiting to meet up with Ian at London’s train station so that they can head to Carlton Heath to spend Christmas together. While she is waiting she bumps into her old boyfriend Josh. He was on a ski trip with a few friends. On the train Ian gets a message that his father Andrew had a heart attack and is in the hospital. When they get off the train they rush to the hospital. Ian stays with his father while Katharine and Miranda go back to the Tea Cosy. Josh has followed Miranda to Tea Cosy in hopes to reunite. Miranda lets him know she isn’t available.

Its Christmas eve and Miranda is with the Whitcombes at the play. With Andrew being in the hospital Ian has taken over the role. When the play ends Ian and Mirana leave as Ian has a surprise for her. On the drive they stop at the Forgotten Rose Cottage. Miranda discovers that she owns it. It use to be Sir James painting cottage. She has always loved it that was the first place Ian and her kissed, outside. Ian proposes to Miranda and she accepts. The Whitcombes arrive to help celebrate and its is there that they receive bad news. The story of Miranda being Sir James love child is revelved. How will this affect Miranda and the Whitcombe family?
