A Vicarage Christmas

(2017)
(The first book in the Holley Sisters of Thornthwaite series)
A novel by

 
 
Welcome to Thornwaite, a quaint village tucked up in England's beautiful but rainy Lake District... where homecomings happen and surprises are in store for the four Holley sisters...

Anna Holley, the third of four sisters, has always felt a little bit forgotten. A family tragedy when she was a child had her retreating deep into shyness, and social anxiety kept her on the fringes of the cozy chaos of the busy vicarage.

After several years away from home, Anna returns for Christmas... and an important announcement from her father. As much as she once loved the village, coming back is hard and puts Anna's social capabilities to the test.

Avoiding her sisters' bossy questions, she heads out to the local pub one night, and meets a handsome stranger nursing a pint. Somehow, unburdened by expectations, Simon seems like the perfect person to spill all her secrets to - including a hopeless, long-held crush on her sister's boyfriend. Confident she'll never see him again, Anna returns home... only to discover the next day that Simon is actually her father's new curate!

Anna is beyond mortified, but Simon won't let her retreat into her usual shyness - and for once Anna is forced to confront the past, and all the fears and feelings she'd tried so long to hide. But with his own heartache that needs to heal, can Simon help Anna to make this the most magical Christmas either of them have known?

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT KATE HEWITT'S BOOKS:

'Perfect summer holiday reading'

'I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and it is by far my favourite of this series, Kiss Me at Willoughby Close is an absolute treat and Jace is a complete swoon-fest and the kind of man dreams are made of.'

'The welcoming atmosphere of the place is fabulous and I love how the people who are living there are starting to get very close. To me they are starting to feel like a chosen family more and more, which is another part of the story I liked a lot. Kiss Me at Willoughby Close is a terrific charming and romantic book.'

'Kate Hewitt has written another brilliant story, which is a perfect addition to her wonderful series.'

'Kate Hewitt has a way of drawing the reader in and captivating them with these stories. I really hope this isn't the last we see of the residents of Willoughby Close as this series has been by far one of my favourites and I would be sad to see the series come to a close.'
