Yesterday was ebook publication day for The Country Village Winter Wedding. It’s the third book set in Little Bramble, following The Country Village Christmas Show and The Country Village Summer Fete.
In this third instalment of the series, Clare Greene and Sam Wilson are getting married and everyone in Little Bramble is excited for the event of the year. But Clare and Sam are busy people and have left organising their wedding to the last minute. (YIKES!)
Luckily, wedding planner Hazel Campbell has recently moved to the village. She had what she thought was a wonderful life in Edinburgh with a successful business, a loving fiancé and her own wedding coming up. But when she caught her groom-to-be in bed with her best friend she fled, leaving everyone and everything behind.
Little Bramble seems like the ideal place for Hazel to start over. As she throws herself into planning the perfect country village winter wedding, she starts to find herself again. And soon she realises that a second chance at happiness might just be on the cards . . .
This story was a lot of fun to write because I was able to return to the beautiful Surrey village of Little Bramble and to enjoy spending time with some of the characters from the first two books. That’s one of the great things about writing a series; you can develop the stories of characters you care about from previous books.
I was very lucky to celebrate a joint publication day with my close friend Sarah Bennett, whose gorgeous book Autumn Dreams at Mermaids Point was published yesterday too. Sarah writes beautiful, uplifting romance novels and if you haven’t read anything by her yet, I thoroughly recommend her books! We celebrated with a Facebook Live event hosted by her publisher Boldwood Books on their Facebook page.
And now I need to write…. I hope you have time to enjoy reading some gorgeous books over the weekend!
