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.

 Thank you to Jenny for letting me take part in this weekend Blitz. This is the first book I have read by Kate but the christmassy cover really drew me in.

This book is a prequel to Kate’s new series Willoughby close which I believe is coming in the new year. In this book we meet Anna as she arrives in the Cotswolds for a quiet Christmas. She’s not had the best time recently and needed to get away to clear her head. The last thing she needed on arrival was to find her room flooded. Luckily Colin comes to the rescue with one of Willoughby close’s cottages.

Anna and Colin have this instant connection that neither of them want to act on. Anna is in a very vulnerable place and Colin is quite happy on his own. There is something however that keeps pulling them together. They really enjoy each others company.

This is a sweet Christmas romance that is perfect for those cold nights.

She likes to read romance, mystery, the occasional straight historical and angsty women’s fiction; she particularly enjoys reading about well-drawn characters and avoids high-concept plots.

Having lived in both New York City and a tiny village on the windswept northwest coast of England, she now resides in the English Cotswolds with her husband, five children, and an overly affectionate Golden Retriever.
