A country Christmas


Homemade mulled wine, freshly baked mince 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.

She knows this year’s celebrations need to be extra special – their beloved Cotswolds brewery is struggling and Lucy is sure that the secret her husband Mickey is hiding isn’t a diamond necklace in her stocking…

It’s certainly going to be a holiday to remember!
