Book Blurb: ‘Climbing out the window in her dress and tiara wasn’t exactly how Frankie imagined her wedding day…’
Runaway bride Frankie Ashford hops a plane to Norway with one goal in mind – find her estranged mother and make peace with the past. But when a slip on the ice in Oslo lands her directly in Jonas Thorsen’s viking-strong arms, her single-minded focus drifts away in the winter winds.
When it comes to romance Jonas knows that anything he and Frankie share has an expiration date – the British heiress has a life to return to in London that’s a world away from his own. But family is everything to Jonas and, as the one man who can help Frankie find the answers she’s seeking, he’ll do whatever it takes to help her reunite with her mother.
Now, as Christmas draws closer and the northern lights work their magic Frankie and Jonas will have to make a choice…play it safe or risk heartbreak to take a chance on love.

Author Bio: Darcie Boleyn has a huge heart and is a real softy. She never fails to cry at books and movies, whether the ending is happy or not. Darcie is in possession of an overactive imagination that often keeps her awake at night. Her childhood dream was to become a Jedi but she hasn’t yet found suitable transport to take her to a galaxy far, far away. She also has reservations about how she’d look in a gold bikini, as she rather enjoys red wine, cheese and loves anything with ginger or cherries in it – especially chocolate. Darcie fell in love in New York, got married in the snow, rescues uncoordinated greyhounds and can usually be found reading or typing away on her laptop.

The book starts maybe in a cringe way and you may catch yourself thinking why would anyone run away from an event like that but I’m glad that Frankie did ran away. If I was in her place, I would run away as well. Makes no sense to stay and marry someone you just don’t love.
The journey takes us to beautiful Norway (well, I have never been there but I do believe that it is beautiful). We follow Frankie in a search for her mother that left her almost 30 years ago. She doesn’t know anything about her since it is almost forbidden to talk About her mom at the house. We follow Frankie as she discovers the truth about her mother, the truth about herself and the beauty of Northern Lights.
This book is a book about a rich girl that discovers herself. You might think to yourself “What is there for a rich girl to discover?”. Well, not everything is in the money and Frankie is showing us that. Money can buy you everything but it can’t buy you what you need; a family and love that you deserve. Maybe this discovery of oneself will be hidden for some people but it is there. It is wonderful how Frankie changed throughout the book and how she started to trust herself more. It is not easy to come out of the shell when you have had someone ruling your life the whole time but when you are angry, it is your fuel to do it.
This is a perfect winter read, when you are cosy under the blanket and with a cup of tea while reading. If it is snowing, you get even one more plus! When you read the book, you will know why snow gives you one more point. 🙂
Also, my favorite scene was for sure the baking one.
