Holly knows something's not right about her life, but she can't figure out what it is. Where did it all go wrong? She has a job she enjoys in Bramblewick's surgery, friends she's known and loved for years, a surrogate grandmother in her next-door neighbour, Lulu, and a boyfriend she adores.
Yet Holly's become increasingly unhappy and confused. So much about her life no longer makes sense, and she's uncertain who she can trust. Are her friends really on her side? Is she still capable of carrying out her job to satisfactory standards? Why does she keep messing things up with Jonathan, the boyfriend who puts up with more than anyone else ever would?
With two weddings to attend and Christmas rapidly approaching, all Holly wants is peace, calm, and an end to the confusion; instead she finds herself facing an impossible choice that makes her worries about being the only fat bridesmaid seem irrelevant. How can she decide between the two people she loves most in the world?
Then there's Lewis ... Newly arrived in the village, calm, easy-going and straightforward, his only vice appears to be his addiction to pear drops. Through him, Holly realises she's been losing a war she had no idea she was fighting. Can she muster the strength for one final battle?
Maybe all she needs is a little help from her friends …
PRAISE FOR THE BRAMBLEWICK SERIES
"It takes much awareness and a great sense of balance to treat certain topics without sounding nor trivial or superficial, nor tragic. This story is pure emotion."
"They're all brilliant...once picked up can't put down."
"Had me captivated from start to finish."
"Whilst all of this author’s Yorkshire settings are evocative and endearing, and characters in themselves, Bramblewick is where I want to spend Christmas!"
Katy’s driving home for Christmas – except an empty, cold caravan hardly seems like home, and it’s not feeling much like Christmas.
It wasn’t supposed to be like this: a few months ago she had her dream cottage, a loving fiance, and big plans for a perfect wedding. Now she’s in her car, travelling through the snow along dark, country lanes, heading towards a Christmas spent by herself, with nothing more to look forward to than a frozen turkey dinner and a box of Quality Street.
With her friends busy with their guests, her parents on a cruise, and her ex-fiance miles away, the only person Katy is expecting to see at all is Luke, the builder who has been working hard to transform Katy’s cottage before it goes up for sale on the other side of Christmas.
Arriving at last in the Holderness village of Weltringham, she’s disappointed to find both the cottage and the caravan in darkness, and Luke nowhere to be seen. It seems everyone in the world has abandoned her to her gloomy fate.
Is she doomed to have the worst festive season ever, or is someone about to save Katy’s Christmas?
After all, it is the time of miracles …
Take a break from those Christmas preparations and curl up by the fire for a couple of hours with this seasonal cosy read.

Christmas has arrived in Bramblewick, along with plenty of snow and festive good cheer. The village is gearing up for the Christmas Eve wedding of popular GP Connor Blake, and much-loved receptionist Anna.
At the Bramblewick Surgery, a new GP, Riley MacDonald, is working alongside Connor, and he's proving to be highly efficient and organised.
When Nell Williamson, proprietor of Spill the Beans café and bakery in the village, first sets eyes on Riley, it's love at first sight. Nell has always believed that she would know "the one" when she met him, and she's convinced that Riley is the man she's been waiting for.
Riley, on the other hand, is a hardened cynic. Having survived a humiliating broken engagement, he's keeping well away from relationships, and is confused by Nell's attentions.
Her every attempt to attract him pushes him further away, convincing her friends she's on a hiding to nothing, even though he turns into a clumsy mess whenever Nell's around. Deciding she's a control freak who should be avoided at all costs, Riley makes a serious error of judgement which could cost her dearly.
As Christmas approaches, best man Riley and bridesmaid Nell are further apart than ever.
Can the two of them reach an understanding before their friends' big day, or will it be the most awkward wedding in Bramblewick's history?
"A very cleansing experience beautifully written"
"Lovely characters, some light humour ... A great plot and lovely setting."
The sun is shining on Bramblewick, the little village on the North York Moors.
At Bramblewick Primary School the teachers are preparing for their much-needed break, and Izzy and Ash are busy making wedding plans.
But for their friend and colleague, Jackson Wade, the long summer holiday isn't so welcome. He's dreading being alone and is already wondering what he's going to do with himself until school starts again.
For Dr Abbie Sawdon, the end of term brings a different problem. She's a single mum with a busy job and three young children to care for. Not only that but she's just moved into The Gables, a large, rather neglected house on the edge of the village. Her teenage daughter hates it, Abbie's got no time to work on it, and she's beginning to wonder if moving to Bramblewick was such a good idea after all.
After mutual friends set Abbie and Jackson up on a blind date, both are adamant that the experience will never be repeated. It's painfully obvious that they have nothing in common, and Abbie is insulted by Jackson's less-than-tactful comments regarding her children and home.
But Jackson might just be the answer to Abbie's problems and, when things reach crisis point at The Gables, she has no choice but to accept his offer of help.
A long and difficult summer lies ahead of them as they negotiate house renovations, boisterous children, lively dogs and a moody teenager. But it's not all bad, as a christening, an engagement party and a trip to the seaside bring some welcome relief from work. And, as the weeks go by, Jackson and Abbie begin to realise that it's not just the house that's in need of tender loving care.
But do some wounds cut too deep to ever heal?
It hasn’t been an easy time for Star St Clair. Her father has heaped disgrace on the family, and the man she loves rejected her when he discovered the truth about her powers. But the St Clair family’s magical heritage goes back centuries, and no one could be prouder of that than Star. Neither her father, nor Benedict Greenwood, will be forgiven.
Fate, however, has a shock in store for her. Not only is her errant father back in town, along with his new fiancée, but her ex has arrived home with a new girlfriend in tow. Maths teacher Elsie is everything Benedict seems to want – bright, steady, normal. How can Star possibly compete with her? Not that she intends to, of course. She is a St Clair, after all, and Benedict won’t get a second chance.
Benedict is an anxious man. Bad enough to discover your girlfriend is, in fact, a witch, but running out on her was probably a big mistake. Who knows what she’s plotting in revenge? Taking Elsie home to meet his grandmother is a test of nerve, and Star’s behaviour doesn’t exactly bring him peace of mind. Just what is she up to?
Star couldn’t be sweeter to Elsie, and even presents her with a bouquet of flowers to welcome her to Castle Clair, but Benedict isn’t fooled. Star is plotting something, and when Elsie suffers from a mysterious ailment, he is convinced that it’s all down to his ex-girlfriend. After all, everyone knows witches can’t be trusted.
But events are about to unfold that will challenge both Star and Benedict, and everything they believe to be true. In an attic room in North Yorkshire and a village hall in Ireland, unpalatable truths must be told, secrets must unfold, and life-changing decisions must be made.
Is forgiveness truly impossible? Are witches really that scary? And can a solution be reached before time, patience, and all the bourbon biscuits run out?
A story of pride, prejudice, and a whole lot of magic …

Is home a place—or a person?
Anna's about to leave Bramblewick behind. She's due to marry her childhood sweetheart in a few weeks, and then she'll be heading to Kent and a whole new life.
Connor's a new arrival in Bramblewick. He's bringing with him a whole lot of baggage, and he's doubtful that this small village on the Yorkshire Moors is the ideal place for him and his daughter, Gracie.
It's not easy for Anna, watching Connor move into her family home and take over from her beloved father at the local surgery, but she's determined to help him settle in and adjust to rural life, so that the villagers get the doctor they deserve.
Connor's not convinced. This country practice is very different to what he's used to, and the locals have some strange expectations of their GP. Protective of Gracie and hiding behind self-constructed barriers, Connor struggles to adapt to life in Bramblewick. Can Anna convince him that this is the place where he and Gracie can finally find happiness?
And can she convince herself that leaving Bramblewick is the right move for her?
Sky St Clair doesn't, and growing up in Castle Clair, a small town renowned for its mystical past and magical legends, she never felt she belonged.
Sky got away from Castle Clair as soon as she could, but when a run of bad luck leaves her homeless and jobless, she has little choice but to accept her sister Star's invitation to return home for the festive season.
When Star has an accident, Sky finds herself running the family's magical supplies shop. Wands, crystals, pendulums ... really? It's a tough job when she doesn't believe in the products she's selling, but how can she? Magic isn't real, no matter what her deluded siblings think.
Jethro Richmond doesn't believe in magic either. In fact, he doesn't believe in anything much anymore, which is proving to be a bit of a problem for a writer of fantasy novels. With a self-constructed wall around his heart as high as Clair Tower, and his dreams as ruined as the town’s ancient castle, he's lost all hope of repairing his tattered career. The last thing he needs is to get involved with a family like the St Clairs, and no matter what a certain little black cat seems to want Jethro has no intention of spending any time with Sky or her unusual sisters.
But this is a strange little town and, as the residents prepare to celebrate Christmas, Sky and Jethro might just discover that in Castle Clair, anything is possible. Even magic
A romantic comedy with a magical twist!
