Review: 'The Accidental Guest' by Tilly Tenant (2015)

Soulmates don’t just fall from the sky… do they?

Hannah Meadows doesn’t believe in fate or destiny, or any of the other things people reach for when they lose control of their lives. That is, until a man arrives on her doorstep on Christmas Day begging for help. Hannah’s not the sort of woman to turn her back on someone in need, but this isn’t what compels her to aid the handsome stranger, nor is it the intense dark eyes, or the inexplicable feelings she quickly develops for him.

Something magical is coming her way, something that will turn her life completely upside down. Hannah Meadows may not believe in fate or destiny, but they seem to have other ideas…

In November 2015 author Tilly Tennant released the first part of her new book series, 'Once Upon a Winter'. I just love the title of the series and can honestly say the title, together with Tilly's name on the book cover, is already enough reason for me to want to give this new series a try! Luckily, I managed to get a review copy of the first part of the series, 'The Accidental Husband' via NetGalley and I had my fingers crossed I would enjoy it as much as I did Tilly's novel 'Hopelessly Devoted to Holden Finn', which I read and reviewed last year (click here to read my review)!

Hannah Meadows is looking forward to celebrating a quiet and fun family Christmas with her sister Gina and niece Jess this year. However, an unexpected knock on the front door changes all of this, especially when Hannah finds a handsome stranger with amnesia on her doorstep. The man has lost his memory after obtaining some kind of injury and can't remember who he is, where he comes from or what happened. Hannah can't help but feel an instant connection to the man and knows she can't just send him off to hospital. It's Christmas after all, right...?

What a great start to this new 'Once Upon a Winter' book series by author Tilly Tennant! The first few pages in which Hannah and her family are preparing for Christmas made me smile and feel all festive and I was straight away taken in by the story. Things definitely got more interesting as soon as a handsome stranger appears on the doorstep, one who suffers from amnesia and has no idea who he is. Since this is just the start of the series, not too much is given away yet, but the story has definitely caught my interest and I'm curious to find out more!

Tilly Tennant's writing style is well-paced and really enjoyable to read. I instantly liked protagonist Hannah and the family chemistry between her and her sister Gina and niece Jess is great as well. The plotline is fascinating and made me curious... What more could I ask for from this novella? 'The Accidental Husband' is an entertaining and promising start to a new book series; a series which I can't wait to read the next part of!
