It means you get more than you expect and is another way of keeping this readers eyes glued to the page. Holly herself is a character I really liked, she is motivated but also patient and can see the best in people. Mitch is moody and initially a bit of a shocking character, but as I learnt more about his story and how he has come to be where he is I saw that he was more than first meets the eye. He was probably my favourite character, but only just. For me, it was how his life had gone through a roller-coaster on an emotional level that added that extra intrigue and poignancy.
This book is part of a series, and even though this is book 4 it really can be read as a stand-alone. This is a book and also a series that has a charming, festive, cosy and enchanting feel to it. A story that has a heart and just ticks all the boxes in what I am looking for in this type of book. One I would definitely recommend xx.

By the time they flew over Sioux Falls, Steve's fears had nearly disappeared and he began looking forward to being with Katy. Then, as the plane passed over a series of valleys the fog appeared once more and almost instantly engulfed the small craft in a dense, suffocating blanket of gray.
Moments later they approached a mountain range, and Steve watched as Joe struggled to clear it safely. The airport wasn't far away, and Joe immediately contacted the radio control tower for assistance. Return to Pierre Municipal Airport and land there. We don't have enough to fly back to Pierre.

The trip seemed to take an eternity, and Steve wondered whether he would see his wife again. Okay, you're too far to the left. That's right. Now lower it a little more. All right, you're right over the end of the runway. Set it down. As the plane touched down Steve saw Katy standing nearby waiting for him, and his eyes filled with tears of relief and gratitude. The two men in the cockpit looked at each other. Without saying a word, they bowed their heads and closed their eyes. And thank you for listening. We couldn't have made it without those directions. You probably saved our lives.
