Alexia Kennedy — a talented and ambitious interior decorator — has been tasked with giving the little village of Middledip the community café it’s always dreamed of. After months of fundraising, the villagers can’t wait to see work get started — but disaster strikes when every last penny is stolen. With the village residents outraged at how this could have happened, Alexia feels ready to head home to London and admit defeat.
But help comes in an unlikely form when woodsman, Ben Hardaker, and his rescue owl Barney, arrive on the scene. Another lost soul who’s hit rock bottom, Ben and Alexia make an unlikely but compelling partnership. Throwing themselves into the café project and the community, they grow closer until Ben's complicated past, and Alexia's ambitions, threaten to force them apart. However, they soon realise that a little sprinkling of Christmas magic might just help to bring this village — and their lives — together again…

Praise for Sue Moorcroft:
‘I love all of Sue Moorcroft’s books!’ – Katie Fforde
‘Sue Moorcroft shows herself yet again to be a master at drawing and exploring the different kinds of relationships… Each character is realistically and sympathetically portrayed so that their relationships too are wholly believable and in no way clichéd… Undoubtedly satisfying – when you finish it, you’ll probably realise there’s a smile on your face and you’re feeling nicely warm and fuzzy – it’s that kind of read.’ – Lucy Literati
