ABOUT THE BOOK
Christmas has arrived in the little village of Welford. The scent of hot roasted chestnuts is in the air, and a layer of frost sparkles on the ground.
This year, vet Mandy Hope is looking forward to the holidays. Her animal rescue centre, Hope Meadows, is up and running - and she's finally going on a date with Jimmy Marsh, owner of the local outward bound centre.
The advent of winter sees all sorts of animals cross Mandy's path, from goats named Rudolph to baby donkeys - and even a pair of reindeer! But when a mysterious local starts causing trouble, Mandy's plans for the centre come under threat. She must call on Jimmy and her fellow villagers to put a stop to the stranger's antics and ensure that Hope Meadows' first Christmas is one to remember.
One thing's for certain: this Christmas, there'll be animal escapades, kisses under the mistletoe...and plenty of festive cheer for all.
Hope Meadows is based on the globally bestselling Animal Ark series. Perfect for fans of Katie Fforde, Holly Martin and Cathy Bramley.
I was so excited to return to this wonderful series and I am delighted to say that CHRISTMAS AT MISTLETOE COTTAGE by Lucy Daniels is just as engaging and heartwarming as its preceding novel.
Mandy Hope is unbelievably busy what with working at her parent's veterinary practice and building up her own animal rescue centre, Hope Meadows. But as the bills start piling up and Mandy starts to feel the strain, somebody in the village has it in for the centre and they won't be happy until Hope Meadows is closed. Add on to that worries about her mother, trying to buy and renovate her dream cottage, wanting to be there for her friends and all of the animals that need her, and it is no wonder that romance is the last thing on her mind, no matter how interested a certain local gentleman seems to be. As Christmas descends on this beautiful place will Mandy be able to solve all of her problems and embrace the new year with more than hope in her heart?
Although you can easily read CHRISTMAS AT MISTLETOE COTTAGE as a standalone novel I highly recommend that you buy the first book in the series too as it really will make you fall in love with the place, the people, and the animals even deeper. I thoroughly enjoyed this story as we get to see Mandy try to tackle real-life problems with her business and her personal life, and the new additions to Hope Meadows are endearing as always.
CHRISTMAS AT MISTLETOE COTTAGE by Lucy Daniels is an enchanting story, perfect for the cold winter nights that darken your door, and is a must for animal lovers and fiction fans alike.
Lucy Daniels is the collective name for the writing team that created the bestselling children's book series Animal Ark.
