Winter Magic

A novel by

Samantha is ready for a change.

The magic of the big city and an exciting job in a big store brings her to London.

Finding somewhere to live is not easy, but as soon as she steps over the threshold of the house with the yellow door she feels at home.

Her housemates are an eclectic bunch: Cara is an aspiring actress and mother who is a bit flighty, but with a good heart; Jeremy is an artist; handsome, talented and kind, but not the best cook; and, though the others speak highly of her, the mysterious Nadia is never home.

The only problem is Nick. Sam has no idea what he does all day. At first she thinks he's quite cold and standoffish, but as she settles into her London life, he shows her a different side.

Though she is confused by his seemingly sudden mood changes, she finds herself falling ... falling for a man who is not available.

Samantha plunges into the whirlwind of her new life, determined to discard her old image and find a new one.

But her success turns to dust and ashes when she realises her happiness in the hands of someone who does not return her love.

As Samantha struggles to balance work, life at the house, and now her increasingly complex relationship with Nick, she has to decide what to follow: her heart or her head.

Will everything pull together?

Will she ever be able to figure Nick out?

Or will she once again have to find a new path?

'Winter Magic' is a story about love, living, and settling into the journey. This beautifully crafted romantic tale will keep readers coming back for more.
