When Millie Venning escapes to her aunt's cottage on the windswept Devon coast for Christmas, she isn't looking for romance. So when she finds a handsome stranger already at the cottage, she's baffled. Has her aunt double-booked the cottage by mistake or is she up to her match-making tricks once again?
Christmas at the Cove is a warm-hearted audiobook by the best-selling author of A Weekend with Mr Darcy and Wish You Were Here.
Was looking forward to listening to this book. Loved the fact that it was set in England and the narrator has an English accent. But the characters did not quite win me over. Particularly Nile, who, after listening to about half the book, still did not seem to be a substantial and real person.
What disappointed you about Christmas at the Cove?
The book had the perfect setting and plot: Christmas at the cottage beach house where a handsome widowed father and his son share the space with a recently broken hearted woman. Except the whole entire listen was so amazingly boring. This book was not cute, sweet, funny, endearing or charming. This book seriously needs a pulse.
Would you ever listen to anything by Victoria Connelly again?
Yes, I really did like Ms. Connelly's voice and narration style. Tis not her fault she had lifeless material to work with.
Alright but it was rather boring. I was not super impressed with the story but liked the narrator.
Where does Christmas at the Cove rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Lovely heart warming story. Loved the characters and the storyline. Only problem was it was too short. By time you had got to know the characters, the story had ended. Another well read book by Jan Cramer who again brought Victoria Connelly's Characters to life.

love it great story great place too be at Christmas such lovely feeling of snow on Christmas and romantic
This is a cosy, heartwarming story to give you a bit of cheer if you are feeling the effects of January blues. It is short, which is its only fault, but on the other hand, you already know that before you buy, so no point I having unrealistic expectations of a story with a deep plot.
Despite this, the three the characters are likeable and there is potential for a sequel. I would definitely like to know more about the lives of the characters and their developing relationships.
