Welcome to Wychwood-on-Lea… a not-too-quaint village where frosty evenings, welcoming fires, and second chances will make this a Christmas you’ll never forget.

Anna Vere has escaped to the Cotswolds for Christmas to try to heal from her broken engagement and, far worse, her broken dreams. When her reserved room at a bed & breakfast is flooded, she takes up the offer of camping out in Willoughby Close, the converted stables of the nearby manor house… and is taken under the wing of sexy local carpenter Colin Heath.

What starts out as merely helping a neighbor in need turns into far more as Colin and Anna share a surprisingly intense and emotional connection, weaving their own Christmas magic as they spend the holiday together. But Anna has a secret she’s scared to reveal, something that could destroy the fragile bond they’ve just created, and Colin knows she’s only in England for a short time. Can these two sudden soul mates risk their hearts for a love that has yet to be tried and tested?

Get swept away by this poignant and heartwarming story, set in beautiful Wychwood-on-Lea, in the English Cotswolds. And look forward to four more books set in Willoughby Close, where everyday miracles and happily-ever-afters are guaranteed.

    "A Cotswold Christmas" by Kate Hewitt is book number one in the "Willoughby Close" series. This is Anna Vere and Colin Heath's story. Anna decides to get away and goes to Cotswold for Christmas. She wants to be by herself and recover from her broken engagement and other devastating things in her life. When Anna first arrives in Cotswold her plans get turned upside down. Colin and Anna paths cross and end up spending time together. There is an attraction between them but Anna lives in New York and Colin lives in England so making this work will be very difficult. They both also have emotional issues that they have not comes to terms with. Will they be able to overcome all the obstacles in their way? This is a really sweet and emotional quick read. Even though it was a quick read I felt like I was able to get to know the characters. FYI, includes mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    I enjoyed reading A Cotswold Christmas by Kate Hewitt. It’s a stranger helping another stranger story. Anna Vere needed to get away from family and friends as she dealt with changes affecting her life. She decided to leave New York and travel to Cotswold to regroup. Unfortunately the Bed and Breakfast she was to stay had been flooded and she had nowhere to stay. Enter Colin Heath, a relative of the B&B owner. He would help her out with a place to stay, a place he had been remodeling. The attraction between these two develops as they open to each other, telling heartfelt stories and sharing deep down secrets. Now Anna and Colin need to figure out whether they can build a long distance relationship or if one or the other can give up their home to live with the other. This was a sweet, fun and entertaining story with very likeable and authentic characters that you want to cheer on, hoping for that happy ending. The characters were well written with complex characteristics. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. I recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
