Here we go again!

Can you believe it? Yet another fabulous publication day dawns and there's still Sleigh Rides and Silver Bells at The Christmas Fair to come in October! Anywho, back to today and Coming Home to Cuckoo Cottage. Today is all about Lottie Foster and her exciting plans for the patch of East Anglian Fen she unexpectedly inherits from one of my favourite characters from Mince Pies and Mistletoe, Gwen.

Here's the blurb...

When Lottie Foster’s grandmother’s best friend Gwen dies, she leaves Lottie her lovely home, Cuckoo Cottage.

Lottie loves the cottage but Matt, a charming local builder, points out that beneath its charm it is falling apart. Luckily he is always on hand to help with the problems that somehow seem to keep cropping up. But is he just a bit too good to be true? Certainly Will, Lottie’s closest neighbour, seems to think so.

Lottie plans to set up her own business renovating vintage caravans. She hasn’t told anyone about the project she has cooked up with Jemma from The Cherry Tree CafĂ© to repurpose Gwen’s old caravan and turn it into a gorgeous tearoom.

But before she can finally enjoy living with her legacy she must uncover who she can trust, and who to avoid. And with two men vying for her attention, will she also find love?

I really hope you like the sound of this return trip to our old friends in Wynbridge. It was a fun story to tell, packed with quite a few of my own favourite things, (I'd love to know if you can identify a couple of them) and if the early reviews are any indicator I've hopefully managed to offer an interesting snapshot of this, until now, unexplored part of the Wynbridge countryside. 

The book is available in both ebook and paperback format (online, Asda, Sainsburys, WH Smiths right now, and Tescos in a couple of weeks), and as always, any #shelfies you manage to snap are hugely appreciated. 

Next week, when I've recovered from the excitement of attending the RNA Conference, I'll be writing a round up of week 2 telling you all about what I've been up to now I'm a full-time author and I'll be launching a competition with 2 Cuckoo Cottage paperbacks up for grabs. 

Oh and before I sign off, did you know I have a story in the current issue of My Weekly magazine AND there's a fabulous Cherry Tree Cafe paperback giveaway running alongside it? Good luck to anyone who enters!

Wishing you all a wonderful end to the week and thank you for your continued support, encouragement and hugs! Social media had reached boiling point even before 8am, this morning! You guys are the best!

  1. My fave location is The Cherry Tree Cafe! I want to have my wedding there!

    1. That would be wonderful wouldn't it? But a Skylark Farm marquee decorated by the Cherry Tree girls would be fab as well! H x

  3. Great blog post Heidi and I absolutely LOVE the new cover! My favourite location would have to be Skylark Farm - this is the book that made me fall in love with the Wynbridge community and also what made me want to pack up and move to the country! It made me fall in love with Country life as I think I would very much be like Amber if I was in her situation!

    1. Thank you Stacey. I love the farm! Dogs, hens and cider. What's not to like? H x
