Sleigh Rides and Silver Bells at The Christmas Fair 

Heidi Swain books Summer At Skylark Farm

When Anna takes on the role of companion to the owner of Wynthorpe Hall, on the outskirts of Wynbridge, she has no idea that her life is set to change beyond all recognition.

A confirmed ‘bah humbug’ when it comes to Christmas, Anna is amazed to find herself quickly immersed in the eccentric household, and when youngest son Jamie unexpectedly arrives home it soon becomes obvious that her personal feelings are going all out to compromise her professional persona.

Jamie, struggling to come to terms with life back in the Fens, makes a pact with Anna – she has to teach him to fall back in love with Wynthorpe Hall, while he helps her fall back in love with Christmas. But will it all prove too much for Anna, or can the family of Wynthorpe Hall warm her heart once and for all...?

Join Anna for a festive journey that is festooned with sleigh rides and silver bells and help her discover her happy ever after.

Christmas tingling in my tummy

I have just finished reading Sleigh bells and silver bells at the Christmas fair and wanted to say a huge thank you for what feels now like the start of the Christmas period.

It only took me a couple of days to finish the book.  I waited til the evening and got in to my PJ's and snuggled up in my bed to read your book.  I have 2 daughters aged 9 and 11 so going to bed with and reading your book in peace and quiet was bliss.

I looked forward to every evening to snuggle up and immerse myself in Wynbridge Hall and all its inhabitants.  I have already read Coming home to Cuckoo cottage and loved that too.  I have just bought Mince pies and mistletoe at the Christmas market and know that I will get the lovely Christmas feeling all over again.

Thank you very much for the Christmas tingling in my tummy.

Heidi is a great writer

Sleigh Rides and Silver Bells at The Christmas Fair - A Fabulous Read

Anna hates the festive season and each year attempts to avoid it. Anna leaves home to become a Nanny/carer/companion. Anna's new position takes her to Wynthorpe Hall in Wynbridge as a carer/companion to Catherine who is recovering from an operation.

On arrival, Anna is thrown into the Christmas festivities which makes her doubt her decision to take the position. The Connelly household is a mix of family and waifs and strays which live under the wing of Angus and Catherine at the hall. Life changes when youngest son Jamie returns from working abroad and has to decide if he takes on the burden of taking over the running of the hall. Jamie and Anna make a pact. Jamie vows to ensure that Anna will love Christmas by the end of her contract and Anna vows to make Jamie fall in love with The Hall and take it over.

This is another fabulous book by Heidi Swain. It was lovely to be reunited with some of the characters from her previous books that live in Wynbridge, (although this is a stand alone book too).

I deliberately took this book slowly as from experience I get totally gripped by the storyline of Heidi Swain's books and finish the book too quickly. I certainly wasn't disappointed by the book. Leaving me with a lovely Christmassy feel.

This book gets a huge thumbs up from me.
