Last winter she had a plan.
Lucy fell in love with tumbledown Rosemary Cottage as a child. So thirty years on, when she loses her city job and discovers the cottage is for sale, it feels like fate. She’ll raise her children in Burley Bridge and transform the cottage into a B&B with her husband.
But a year can change everything . . .
Now Lucy is juggling two children and a B&B, but on her own. Christmas looks set to be their last on Rosemary Lane – until she meets James, a face from her past and someone who might offer a different kind of future . . .
Should Lucy leave the cottage behind? Or could this winter on Rosemary Lane be the start of something new?
Curl up with a cosy winter read that fans of Trisha Ashley and Carole Matthews will love.
I would say Christmas 2019 is now well and truly over, but that hasn’t stopped me from reading a lovely festive read over the last few days.
This story focuses on the side of Christmas people often forget – the love and affection of families, friends and lovers. The characters are likeable and relatable and I found it easy to envisage them as real people.
I do wish I had read this on the build up to Christmas as I imagine this to be very cosy in front of the Christmas tree. However I still enjoyed this after the season was over. I would definitely recommend reading this in December but I also think it was good any time of the year – okay maybe a little strange in August, but you know what I mean.
I have never read anything from this author before, but after reading this I would like to see more. I have also already reserved this for next year in my Christmas reading list to ensure I read this at the right time of year! It was delightfully heart warming and I am already looking forward to Christmas 2020 to read it again!
