Remember how much I enjoyed The Christmas Promise last year? So many other people did too – so many that it reached #1 in the charts, and thoroughly deserved it. And it’s lovely today to be able to share the gorgeous Christmassy cover of Sue Moorcroft’s new book, The Little Village Christmas – publishing in e-book from Avon on 9th October, in paperback on 2nd November, and available for pre-order. Another number one, do you think? Well, it most certainly will be with me…
Alexia Kennedy – interior decorator extraordinaire – has been tasked with giving the little village of Middledip the community café it’s always dreamed of.
After months of fundraising, the villagers can’t wait to see work get started – but disaster strikes when every last penny is stolen. With Middledip up in arms at how this could have happened, Alexia feels ready to admit defeat.
But help comes in an unlikely form when woodsman, Ben Hardaker and his rescue owl Barney, arrive on the scene. Another lost soul who’s hit rock bottom, Ben and Alexia make an unlikely partnership.
However, they soon realise that a little sprinkling of Christmas magic might just help to bring this village – and their lives – together again…
Settle down with a mince pie and a glass of mulled wine as you devour this irresistibly festive Christmas tale. The perfect read for fans of Carole Matthews and Trisha Ashley.
I’m just so thrilled that it’s set in Middledip… I can’t wait!
