The storylines and characters intertwine, highlighting the different aspects of the people who live in the cottages in the beautiful little Scottish Highland community by the sea.


Aurora comes back to live in a cottage in the Scottish Highlands, leaving her life as a magazine editor in London behind. She plans to start up an exciting new online magazine featuring sewing, knitting, papercrafts, embroidery, colouring in, scrapbooking and all sorts of popular crafts.

Although she grew up in the area, she had a reputation as a trouble maker.

The women from the local sewing and knitting bee are sceptical of her reasons for coming back, but soon become involved in Aurora's new craft magazine. She also attracts the attention of the handsome beemaster, Bredon.

There's romance news about Mairead and the flower hunter -- and about the dressmaker's apprentice, Tiree. The dressmaker contributes an exclusive tea dress pattern to Aurora's magazine. The dressmaker also thinks that someone will get married this year. None of the women think they'll be setting a date for a wedding -- but the dressmaker is never wrong.


Sebastian, a character from The Cure For Love, is featured in The Beemaster's Cottage. The Cure For Love is a romance set in Cornwall and London.
