All work and no love can make for a dull life. But cupid’s arrow has a habit of striking when you least expect it… A heartwarming, feel-good romance to curl up with this winter. Perfect for the fans of Marian Keyes and Veronica Henry.

Mallory Westerman is the successful proprietor of Le Petit Cadeau, a gift shop extraordinaire in thriving Leeds.

Concentrating solely on her business, she has almost given up on finding someone to love. That is until she literally falls into the arms of a handsome, intriguing stranger who becomes her Knight in shining armour.

The whirlwind romance that ensues changes her life-path irrevocably. However, the road to true love is never smooth and things don’t always turn out how you expect…

*Shortlisted for the RNA Contemporary Romantic Novel of the Year 2014*

This book was previously published as A Bridge Over The Atlantic.


This was a very emotional story to read. 

I liked the way the characters were introduced before any big things happened in the plot. I felt really connected to them right away. I also loved the Canadian connections in the story! 

At times I felt that everything was going too perfectly, when everything fell into place for Mallory. However, not everything went as she had planned, and she does have to face hardships. When things went perfectly, I didn’t think the story was realistic enough, such as her relationship with Sam’s family. But at the same time, the difficult sides to a relationship were displayed from Greg’s point of view, which balanced it out. 

I loved this book! It is truly a heart wrenching read.
