Kim Nash: Snowflakes Over Muddleford Cove


Love is in the air and the festive season is just around the corner at the seaside town of Muddleford.

Nellie is happily settled in her gorgeous clifftop home. Her favourite evenings are those spent at her beach hut, cozying up under a blanket with her fiancé. There’s nothing quite like spending time together under the twinkly stars – complete with a delicious hot chocolate and her dog Norman sprawled on their feet.

But she can’t help feeling that there’s still something missing.

When Nellie meets Esme, a mysterious visitor to Muddleford, the pair of them come up with a plan to raise money for the local animal shelter, leading to the grand finale – a Christmas Ball.

But Esme’s keeping a secret about Nellie’s past that promises to throw her whole world upside down.

Will this be Nellie’s perfect Christmas for the first time in forever? Or will it turn into her worst nightmare – one that she’ll never forget?

Sometimes you have to go back to go forward.

A gorgeous festive read to curl up by the fireside with, for fans of Heidi Swain, Jessica Redland and Beth Moran.


I’m one of the biggest Scrooges on the planet, but when I saw that Kim Nash was inviting us back to Muddleford Cove, I was really excited. It was great to catch up with Nellie and Jack and all their friends and family and I love the sense of community between the characters that gave me the warmest feeling. The festive element takes a while to build, but I still finished the book with a lovely festive feeling. 

Kim Nash writes with warmth and humour. My inner twelve year old particularly enjoyed the sausage competition! However, she also invites us into the more serious side of her character’s lives and she does so with sensitivity and wisdom. I loved the sayings that are peppered throughout the novel, usually spoken by older characters, to help others make important decisions. It is clear that Nellie has an emotional back story and I am pleased that the author chose to explore this in much more depth in this novel. 

Snowflakes Over Muddleford Cove is a relatively short novel, but there is lots packed into it and it was a delightful addition to my December TBR. There is scope for us to see these characters again should the author wish to bring them back, but either way, I am looking forward to whatever she does next! 

Snowflakes Over Muddleford Cove is available from Amazon.
