Review - Christmas at the Little Clock House on the Green (Whispers Wood, book 2) by Eve Devon
November 8, 2017
Put the mince pies in the oven, Christmas has arrived! Okay, maybe a little premature but I promise you all the Christmas feels after reading Christmas at the Little Clock House on the Green. I loved the first book in the series so I had to read the latest installment by Eve Devon.
A cosy heartwarming festive romance that will make you laugh out loud!
Welcome back to the village of Whispers Wood where Christmas magic is in the air…
After giving his heart last year only to have it given away the very next day, Jake Knightley is opting out of Christmas—permanently! But then a beautiful new village arrival sets mayhem in motion, upsetting all his carefully laid plans.
Emma Danes has said goodbye to Hollywood and will do anything to help make the clock house a success, even working closely with the tempting Mr Knightley.
Now, as snow starts to fall and romance starts to bloom, Emma and Jake may just find themselves repeating Whispers Wood history beneath the mistletoe…
What readers are saying about The Little Clock House on the Green:
‘A truly enchanting read’ Books of All Kinds
‘Charming, lively, moving and endearing’ With Love for Books
‘Brimming with well-developed characters, a stunning village setting, and has plenty of laughs along the way to make this a truly enchanting read’ Books of All Kinds
I loved the first Whispers Wood book so I was excited to revisit new characters and old.
This time it's new resident Emma Danes who has arrived at the village to help with the opening of the clock house. Upon arrival, she meets Jake Knightley and it's not exactly a warm welcome from the surly gardener. It seems all the villagers are tiptoeing around Jake, who seems to be getting even grumpier the closer Christmas gets.
Jake has plenty of reason to want out of the village for Christmas, but Emma, who seems to be a friend to all makes it difficult for him to escape. Or is it the chandelier to blame?
I chuckled throughout the entire book! Eve Devon seems to get better and better and that's saying something considering I've enjoyed everything she's written. This book has everything. A brilliant plot, characters to fall in love with, emotion, and most of all - heart. I absolutely love Whispers Wood and the author's skill puts you right there, dumped in the snow, fully immersed in the goings on in the village. If you are a fan of Jill Shalvis, this is the series for you. It reminds me so much of The Lucky Harbor series. Christmas at the Little Clock House on the Green is full of tender moments, sweetness and so much humour! The added references are so funny. Some old and so very current you'd think the author had penned it today, if not for the obvious brilliance which shows that a lot of hard work went into making this your Christmas read of 2017!
