I’ve been super quiet online lately, and this blog has been like a ghost town since October. This book is the reason why! I’ve been labouring hard to bring After the Frost into the world, and it’s finally here!
And, yes, I know it’s a Christmas book and this is February, but it is what it is.
He’s a widower who has lost the perfect wife. So, why is he drawn to a woman who’s not the marrying kind?
Steinar is adjusting to life as a single dad of seven-year-old twins. He hoped that moving back to his home country would bring healing to his little family, but settling into their new home in a small Norwegian town is proving harder than he thought. His children struggle with the language and miss their life in England. Getting involved in the community might be the answer, and he’s happy to volunteer in the town’s Christmas festival.
Reidun bucks traditional roles and never thought of herself as wife material, nor the mothering type. But now that she’s the only single woman left in her friend group, she’s spending a lot more time alone than she’d like. She needs a new project to keep herself busy, and planning her small town’s first ever Christmas festival sounds perfect.
Amid the twinkling lights and festive preparations, Reidun doesn’t expect the single dad and his feisty twins to find the soft spot in her heart. They’re used to the perfect homemaking wife and mom, and she’s anything but.
This Christmas, they’re all about to learn that sometimes God’s perfect gifts come in the most unlikely packaging.
After the Frost is Book 5 in Milla Holt’s Seasons of Faith Christian romance series. Five friends were in the same wedding in a small Norwegian town over twenty years ago. Four bridesmaids, one bride. Now, two decades on, each woman learns that God’s timing is perfect as they find forever love later in life.
