Hard to put down. It is set in a rural village in Wiltshire, home to the Liddiards whose family brewery is under threat. As are the foundations of their family, creaking under the many secrets and betrayals hidden within it. Despite the picture postcard setting, there is a fair amount of action going on and it all gets a little complicated. Highly recommended.

If you like Veronica Henry you might also like to read books by Milly Johnson, Madeleine Wickham and Claudia Carroll.

Synopsis

Honeycote by Veronica Henry

The Liddiards have lived at Honeycote House for generations. But all that might be about to change ...

Mickey Liddiard adores his wife Lucy. So why is he cheating on her with Kay? He knows it's wrong, but he can't help himself.

James, Mickey's brother, has been in love with Lucy since the day he met her. He can't betray his brother - but he's not going to stop the truth coming out.

Kay only married Lawrence Oakley for his money, and he knows it. But is it Mickey who holds the key to her happiness?

For each of Mickey's misdemeanours, somewhere in the seemingly peaceful village of Honeycote there is a knife being sharpened. Ambition, greed and good old-fashioned revenge all conspire to bring about his downfall - but will true love save the day?
