The brand new novel from Holly Hepburn, author of A Year at the Star and Sixpence, perfect for all fans of Cathy Bramley and Jenny Colgan.
Roaring fires, cosy nooks and friendly locals, welcome back to the perfect village pub...
It’s September and the new season is bringing change to the village of Little Monkham. Nessie has moved in with the lovely Owen and his son Luke, leaving her sister Sam next door in their renovated pub, the Star and Sixpence. But is all change for the good? Sam and Joss have gone their separate ways and he’s left Little Monkham for good.
New chef Gabriel Santiago is causing a flutter among the women of the village but Sam is determined not to make the same mistake again and keeps things strictly business between them. But an inconvenient attraction to Gabe is the least of Sam’s worries when an unexpected visitor arrives at the Star and Sixpence. Who is Laurie Marsh and what does he want from the sisters?
If you loved A Year at the Star and Sixpence, you will adore Last Orders at the Star and Sixpence! It is like being reunited with old friends (in a pub!)
Thank you to Simon and Schuster for my copy of this book and for letting me take part in this tour. I love Holly’s writing style, I absolutely adored the first series at The Star and Sixpence and A Year at Castle Court. I was so excited to return to Little Monkham.
The Star and Sixpence is going from strength to strength and sisters Sam and Nessie have just hired chef Gabe. Not only is Gabe a top-notch chef he is also pretty easy on the eye. There is an instant attraction between Sam and Gabe but after what happened with Joss, Sam is more than cautious. I was really rooting for these two from the beginning. They have a lot in common and its clear they feel something for each other.
Gabe isn’t the only new character in this series. We also meet Laurie. I was pretty suspicious of Laurie from the off. There was something about him that I just didn’t trust. Laurie clearly has a lot of unresolved issues.
Nessie and Owen go through a really tough time in this book. My heart was breaking for them. It’s such a tough thing to go through. I think Holly did an excellent job with these scenes.
It was also great to catch up with the other residents of Little Monkam and see how they have been getting on.
Holly took me through a lot of emotions in this book. I was crying and laughing right along with our main characters.
It was wonderful to return to Little Monkham and I can’t wait to see where Holly takes us next.
