About this ebook

Fans of Milly Johnson and Phillipa Ashley, the Cosy Kettle café is waiting for you to find a comfy spot by the fire and snuggle up with a steaming mug of hot chocolate. Amidst the twinkling lights and falling snowflakes, Becca has a wish to make this Christmas…

Running from heartbreak, twenty-five-year-old Becca has moved to the cosy village of Honeyford. Living with her best friend Zac in a little stone cottage, and serving mince pies and steaming gingerbread lattes at the Cosy Kettle, is the perfect escape from her past.

But starting over isn’t always plain sailing, and Becca’s shyness is holding her back from making her mark on the café. To make matters worse, her crush on blond-haired, blue-eyed local heartthrob Logan gets stronger by the day – but he can barely remember her name. So as the snow starts to fall in Honeyford, Becca has one big Christmas wish: to completely reinvent herself. Becca dreams of bringing the Cosy Kettle success and finding romance with Logan under the mistletoe.

As she gets a makeover, cosies up to Logan over mulled wine and plans the most festive celebration the café has ever seen, Becca wonders why she waited so long to step out of her comfort zone… Zac, on the other hand, thought she was perfect before – always caring for others – and he misses the quirky girl with the bright blue hair.

When Logan turns out to not be all he seems, Becca is left wondering if he’s really the one for her. With her party plans also going awry, can Becca save her beloved Cosy Kettle in time for Christmas? And has the key to her happiness been in front of her all along?

Nothing makes me happier than a book (or series) that will bring me into a small British village, and let me live alongside the residents and experience their lives, even if in a book. The Cosy Kettle has come into its own, thanks in no small part to the manager, Becca and the ‘book club’ that spends hours there keeping everyone under watch and within their circle. And they are very protective of those they care for – and Becca is the fortunate recipient of their caring, advice and meddling. All well-intentioned, of course, and particularly slapstick ideas and help from Stanley. See, Becca is an overthinker and prone to ‘anxiety’. And, she’s always felt compared to her twin – but when a job that she thought she wanted turned out to be just the opposite, a relationship went south and her confidence was shattered, it broke her. A bit of time feeling like she’d disappointed everyone and they were convinced she was always going to need their support, and she moved to Honeyford and ended up, after a series of fortunate events, as the manager of the café. Still with the crippling overthinking and worries about being enough – but her housemate and best friend Zac have her mostly on an even keel. And then, she decides that a wish list of ‘things to change’ will be the answer to her every problem – and she’s determined to do it all by Christmas. From securing a fancy ‘work do’ for the guy she’s crushed on since arriving in Honeyford, and remaking the café to a more ‘upscale’ (and heartless think many) venue, to suddenly being the focus of the crushed-upon boy’s focus, things are moving in the direction she wants- all to be more like her twin. But she’s not happy and often it’s more stressful suffering from the after-effects of the changes. I love this series and the support that everyone gives Becca, even when she ‘wrong-foots’ it often in the attempts to ‘be different’. For in and of herself, Becca is lovely, if a bit prone to overthinking ALL the possibilities and never quite feeling up to ‘snuff’. And when she finally takes a clear look at her own feelings for Zac, and the lack of response that she has from Logan (of the crush) it’s a whole other storm of second-guessing. And then, through finally being shown just how marvelous they all think she is – and being honest with herself and Zac – and helping her mother through a crisis of confidence and choices – things work out for the best. And the whole village had a hand in the happy story, even the tricky parts. Another wonderful installment in a series that has come to be one of my favorites. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
