Escaping Christmas by Alice B. Ryder
Having suffered a devastating loss on Christmas Eve almost a year ago, all Sophie Baxter is looking for is a little bit of peace and quiet while she gets her beloved grandmother’s cottage ready to be sold. Escaping the rat-race of London for Peakton seems like the perfect way to avoid the Christmas celebrations for Sophie, especially when the tiny Derbyshire village holds so many fond childhood memories for her.
The last thing she expects is to be faced with her teenage crush, Andy Martin, who stirs up feelings in her she never thought possible.
But just when Sophie is considering a future with Andy, something comes between them which could destroy their new found happiness.
