The Christmas Wish List By Heidi Swain

The Christmas Wish List By Heidi Swain

After being let go from her job in a swanky hotel just weeks before Christmas, Hattie is feeling lost. Even more so when her high-flying boyfriend announces he’s landed his dream job in Abu Dhabi and asks her to move with him. Luckily, Hattie’s long-time friend Dolly is on hand to help and invites Hattie to spend one last holiday in the small, festive town of Wynbridge, determined to give her a Christmas to remember . . .

Upon Hattie’s arrival, holiday preparations are in full swing. But for Hattie, whose Christmas cheer has long since run out, it’ll take more than mince pies and mistletoe to open her heart to the season once more. Relishing the task of reigniting Hattie’s Christmas spirit, Dolly suggests they create a wish list of all the things the season can offer, and with the helpful hands of Wynbridge’s resident handyman, Beamish, Hattie finds her frosty exterior is starting to thaw.

As Wynbridge prepares for its most spectacular Christmas yet, will Hattie leave snowy England behind for life in a sunnier clime, or will she in fact realise that her heart’s desire lies much closer to home?

My Thoughts:

Make sure to snuggle up with this festive read where we meet some fantastic characters that will warm your heart. If you go to Wynbridge I am sure you will feel the Christmas spirit that the locals become involved in. I loved Dolly she melted my heart and reminded me of my gran. So kind and caring. A lovely romantic and festive read, you are in for a real treat.

Summer at Skylark Farm By Heidi Swain

Summer at Skylark Farm By Heidi Swain

Amber
 is a city girl at heart. So when her boyfriend Jake suggests they move to the countryside to help out at his family farm, she doesn’t quite know how to react. But work has been hectic and she needs a break so she decides to grasp the opportunity and make the best of it.

Dreaming of organic orchards, paddling in streams and frolicking in fields, Amber packs up her things and moves to Skylark Farm. But life is not quite how she imagined – it’s cold and dirty and the farm buildings are dilapidated and crumbling.

But Amber is determined to make the best of it and throws herself into farm life. But can she really fit in here? And can she and Jake stay together when they are so different?

My Thoughts:

I loved how Heidi bought this story to life, it is a feel good read that I think everyone will love. This book follows on from Heidi’s previous novel The Cherry Tree Cafe but it can be read as a standalone. I loved the characters especially the animal kind. Patricia the chicken was my favourite for sure. Lovely story which truly made me smile.

The Cherry Tree Cafe By Heidi Swain

The Cherry Tree Cafe By Heidi Swain

Lizzie Dixon‘s life feels as though it’s fallen apart. Instead of the marriage proposal she was hoping for from her boyfriend, she is unceremoniously dumped, and her job is about to go the same way. So, there’s only one option: to go back home to the village she grew up in and to try to start again.

Her best friend Jemma is delighted Lizzie has come back home as she has just bought a little cafe and Lizzie’s sewing skills are just what she needs to help get it ready for the grand opening.

With a new venture and a new home, things are looking much brighter for Lizzie. But can she get over her broken heart, and will an old flame reignite a love from long ago…?

My Thoughts:

If you fancy a light hearted read with a side dish of cakes, this is the book for you. I love the way when Lizzie’s plans go awry and she moves back to her old village that people from the community rally round to help her including her best friend Jemma. I loved the idea of Lizzies new venture and loved seeing how it would all come together. A nice little story that is an easy read.

Poppy’s Recipe for Life By Heidi Swain

Poppy’s Recipe for Life By Heidi Swain

Things haven’t always been straightforward in Poppy’s life but her dreams are finally within her reach.

She’s moving into a cottage in beautiful Nightingale Square, close to the local community garden, where she can indulge her passion for making preserves and pickles. She may not have the best relationship with her family but she is surrounded by loving friends, and feels sure that even her grumpy new neighbour, Jacob, has more to him than his steely exterior belies.

But the unexpected arrival of Poppy’s troubled younger brother soon threatens her new-found happiness and as the garden team works together to win community space of the year, Poppy must decide where her priorities lie and what she is prepared to fight for …

My Thoughts:

I need to read more of Heidi’s books they are fantastic. I couldn’t put this little cracker of a read down. Some lovely characters and a dishy neighbour, what more can you ask for? I loved reading about Poppy’s new life moving to Nightingale Square, you can see how good a community that she has come into.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
