This is a christmas read with baubles and bells on, a real, captivating, humdinger of a tale. The gorgeous Honeycote House and Brewery sit at the centre of village life, yet all is not well, financial ruin is just around the corner. If you are an existing fan of Veronica Henry, then it is worth noting that this is her first book, ‘Honeycote’, which has been retitled and reintroduced. I just adore settling down with a christmassy tale when the nights draw in, and yet there is so much more on offer here. Drama, seduction, intrigue, and revenge all sing from the pages, as well as warmth and love. Veronica Henry perfectly tunes human emotions so they feel authentic, the characters are flawed, feel real, and this of course makes them so very interesting. ‘A Country Christmas’ is a fascinating, engaging, and thoroughly entertaining treat, and I loved it. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

A Country Christmas by Veronica Henry

Homemade mulled wine, freshly baked mine 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.

Irresistibly good fun and bursting with heart, A Country Christmas is the first book in the Honeycote trio. Each can be read as a standalone, or they can be read as a series. ** This book was originally published as Honeycote.

Reviews
