Product Details (as per amazon page)

Snow is falling in Honeybourne and Spencer is bringing home his American fiancée Tori for a traditional English Christmas with all the trimmings. But when his hippie mum and dad meet her high-maintenance parents, sparks of the wrong sort start to fly. Then Spencer bumps into his first love Jasmine and unexpected feelings come flooding back.

Millie is run off her feet with Christmas orders at the Little Village Bakery and new baby Oscar. Thank goodness her cousin Darcie is here to help her. Although she does seem to be rather flirty with Millie’s boyfriend Dylan.

Will Darcie ever find true love of her own? And is marrying Tori a terrible mistake for Spencer if his heart is with someone else?


I’d like to thank the publishers and netgalley for an arc in return for a review.

This is my first Christmas read for the new season 2016.  It was so lovely to return to the village of Honeybourne and it sounded even more idyllic with the run-up to Christmas.

We join again the much loved villagers we got to know in book 1 with Millie and Dylan, Jasmine, Rich and the triplets.  Spencer is back from his secondment teaching in the US with his fiancée Tori and we have a newcomer in the village, Darcie, Millie’s cousin.

The villagers are gearing up for Christmas but with the village and surrounding areas swamped in snow life isn’t without incident.  Spencer’s parents and his prospective in-laws are due to arrive for the festive season.  Spencer is very much on edge with their imminent arrival and his relationship with Tori is strained.

Millie’s cousin, Darcie, was experiencing some questions of the heart herself and with the arrival of two strangers in her life she becomes even more confused with her feelings.

This was another feel-good story from Tilly Tennant.  It felt like diving in a book with long lost friends and with the warmth and cosiness emanating from the bakery you can’t help but feel like you are ‘at home’ with this delightful story.  A story with some bumps in the road of love for our villagers and wonderful community spirit which kept you captivated to the end and beyond.  I’m looking forward to the next instalment in The Honeybourne book series. 5/5*

I’m really enjoying this series by Tilly Tennant, you can find my review for Book 1 The Little Village Bakery (Honeybourne Book 1) by Tilly Tennant book review here.
