I love Christmas, and each year I try to write at least one Christmas time story.
Last year I wrote a festive novella called Another Cup of Christmas, which was sequel to my full length novel, Another Cup of Coffee – this year, I have followed on a year from where we left the staff of the Pickwicks café- but this time Pickwicks waitress Megan is on a rescue mission, which takes her away from the café, and into the beautiful villages of the Cotswolds…
Izzie Spencer-Harris, owner of the Cotswold Art and Crafts Centre, is due to host the prestigious Cotswold Choir’s annual Christmas carol concert in her beautiful converted church. Or at least she was, until a storm smashed a hole right through the chancel roof.
Days from Christmas, Izzie suddenly finds herself up to her neck in DIY, with her last dodgy workman having walked off the job. She does the only thing she can … calls in her best friend Megan to help.
Leaving Peggy and Scott to run Pickwicks Café in her absence, Megan heads to the Cotswolds for Christmas. Within minutes of her arrival, she finds herself hunting down anyone willing to take on extra work so close to Christmas. It seems the only person available to help is Joseph Parker – a carpenter who, while admittedly gorgeous, seems to have ulterior motives for everything he does …
With Izzie’s bossy mother, Lady Spencer-Harris, causing her problems at every turn, an accident at work causing yet more delays, and the date for the concert drawing ever nearer, it’s going to take a lot more than Mrs Vickers’ powerful mulled wine to make sure everything is all right on the night …
This story can be read as part of the series or as a standalone piece.
I hope you enjoy it!
Happy reading everyone
