12 Days of Fiction: The Country Village Christmas Show


The Country Village Christmas Show cover

Cathy Lake brings fun, romance and a sprinkling of Christmas spirit to her new story, and here she reads an extract just for you! Over the next 12 days we’ll reveal our favourite festive reads… you might want to add some to your Santa list!

Recently divorced, the family home sold and with a son who is grown-up, Clare is at a crossroads. She’s dedicated her whole adult life to her family, and now it’s time she did something for herself.

In the lead up to Christmas, Clare decides that a bit of time in the countryside might be just what she needs, so she moves back to the village she grew up in. But living with her mum for the first time in years – and not to mention Goliath the Great Dane – can be a challenge at times.

When Clare finds herself running the village Christmas show, it feels like she has purpose in her life again. Bringing together people from all sides of the community, and all walks of life, will Clare manage to pull off a festive feat like no other? And will she find the new start in life – and possibly love – that she’s been looking for?

Cathy sets the wintery scene…
