What They Say:
Welcome to Wychwood-on-Lea… a not-too-quaint village where frosty evenings, welcoming fires, and second chances will make this a Christmas you’ll never forget.
Anna Vere has escaped to the Cotswolds for Christmas to try to heal from her broken engagement and, far worse, her broken dreams. When her reserved room at a bed & breakfast is flooded, she takes up the offer of camping out in Willoughby Close, the converted stables of the nearby manor house… and is taken under the wing of sexy local carpenter Colin Heath.
What starts out as merely helping a neighbor in need turns into far more as Colin and Anna share a surprisingly intense and emotional connection, weaving their own Christmas magic as they spend the holiday together. But Anna has a secret she’s scared to reveal, something that could destroy the fragile bond they’ve just created, and Colin knows she’s only in England for a short time. Can these two sudden soul mates risk their hearts for a love that has yet to be tried and tested?
Get swept away by this poignant and heartwarming story, set in beautiful Wychwood-on-Lea, in the English Cotswolds. And look forward to four more books set in Willoughby Close, where everyday miracles and happily-ever-afters are guaranteed.
What a cute read! I’ve really enjoyed Kate’s books in the past, so the opportunity to take part in her blitz for her new book, A Cotswold Christmas, was too big to pass up! I really enjoyed this, it’s a cute, quick read, perfect for the festive season and I’m always a fan of love-across-the-pond, with Anna coming from New York to the Cotswolds, to escape after some dreadful news.
I actually loved how Colin and Anna seemed to get on like a house on fire, right from the off. That spark was just there, and it was like two lost souls had finally found each other, helped by Frances’ unfortunate flood, of course. It all seemed very organic and I definitely wanted to visit Wychwood-on-Lea and I’m so excited that there will be four more books set there! This was such a great little read, Kate’s quickly becoming a must-read author for me!
