#book #review Winter Whimsy by Georgina Troy

Zip up your puffer coat, winter has arrived!

When Lexi Davies discovers that her father has sold the fishermen’s cottages she runs as holiday lets and where she also lives, she is heartbroken. Then, when Oliver Whimsy arrives at the boardwalk and announces that he is the new owner, Lexi realises that the future she was looking forward to enjoying at her cottages is over.

Oliver might be handsome, wealthy and very sexy, but he’s new to the island and has already made a terrible impression on the locals. When he offers Lexi a job, she’s unsure whether she should accept. Unfortunately, she has little alternative if she wants a roof over her head for the winter.

As Lexi gets to know Oliver better, she discovers there’s far more to Oliver Whimsy than she or anyone else had imagined. Just what is the heartache Oliver’s trying so desperately to hide and why was he so determined to buy the cottages? Lexi wants to find out, but in order to do so she’s going to have to spend time with him…


This is book three in the Boardwalk series and my first time visiting! Winter Whimsy focuses on Lexi – she has lived by the sea all her live and takes care of her late mothers three fisherman’s cottages that are used at tourists lets during season. He mother died in a car crash so these houses are her legacy, but she has the rug pulled from under her feet when Oliver Whimsy arrives on her doorstep announcing he is the new owner of the cottages! Lexi’s father has sold them without even telling her, leaving her without a home and a job! It appears her fathers new girlfriend Gina may have had a hand to play it all this happening. 

Oliver and come to an agreement that allows her to work for him until the summer season starts, which gives her a few months to work out what she is going to do. During their time together you can feel the chemistry between them and it was only natural how their relationship progressed.

Lexi and her friends all live in this delightful location, and you really get a feel for the island life and community spirit. Set in the midst of winter this book will leave you feeling all cozy and warm as you follow Lexi and Oliver’s story.
