Homemade mulled wine, freshly baked mince pies and plenty of Christmas cheer…
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, they say. And in the little Cotswolds village of Honeycote, the festive season looks set to bring people more than a few surprises under the tree.
As Lucy Liddiard plans the festive lunch for her nearest and dearest, she has little idea of the dramas about to play out before the crackers are pulled and the corks popped. She knows the family brewery, Honeycote Ales, has seen better days. She knows her husband, Mickey, is an incorrigible flirt. But does she realise how close both are edging towards disaster?
As the nights draw in, garlands deck the halls and the carols ring out, there are secrets and lies, love and lust all waiting to be unwrapped.
Welcome to Honeycote, and a Christmas no one will ever forget…
This book was originally published as Honeycote and this is the first book in the three part series. I did find the start of the book overwhelming as there are a lot of characters from the start but once you get to know who everybody is it was fine. It is full of laughter, friends and family time. There is lots going on but it was a really good read.

Everyone has a story . . . but will they get the happy ending they deserve?
Emilia has just returned to her idyllic Cotswold hometown to rescue the family business. Nightingale Books is a dream come true for book-lovers, but the best stories aren’t just within the pages of the books she sells – Emilia’s customers have their own tales to tell.
There’s the lady of the manor who is hiding a secret close to her heart; the single dad looking for books to share with his son but who isn’t quite what he seems; and the desperately shy chef trying to find the courage to talk to her crush . . .
And as for Emilia’s story, can she keep the promise she made to her father and save Nightingale Books?
What a superb read. Veronica Henry is one of my favourite authors and when I saw this book out I knew I had to read it. You get to meet some interesting characters along the way in this book and learn a little about each one of them. This is a friendly and affectionately tale of everyday life in the Cotswold Village of Peasbrook, I couldn’t put the book down it gripped me right from the start. Veronica Henry has written a brilliant book here and I think it has to be one of my favourites of hers.
