Review of Snowdrops at the Star and Sixpence by Holly Hepburn - Four *


A perfect winter warmer novella for all fans of Cathy Bramley and Scarlett Bailey.

When sisters Nessie and Sam inherit a little pub in a beautiful country village they jump at the chance to escape their messy lives and start afresh. But when they arrive at the Star and Sixpence, it's not quite what they imagined - it's pretty much derelict, ruined by debts, and it's going to be a huge job to get it up and running again.

It's just before Christmas but they are determined to relaunch on New Year's Eve, to bring the new year in with a bang. But with nosy neighbours, miserable locals and no money to contend with, it's not going to be easy.

And when the sisters' past comes back to haunt them, they start to think that the fresh start they needed is very far away indeed…

Curl up with Snowdrops at the Star and Sixpence - the perfect novella for those winter nights. 


This is the second book I've read recently along the lines of father dies and leaves property to daughter(s) who never really knew him. But they were very different!

Nessie and Sam inherit their father's pub and set about opening it up once more. They are helped and hindered by locals and introduced to the beginnings of new romances. 

I liked the two different characters of Nessie and Sam - Sam is much bolder that Nessie and gets herself and the pub in trouble before they've even started! But she worked in PR and finds way to resolve all the problems.

interesting to watch them learn that their Dad wasn't just a heavy drinker, but a nice man as well.

Nice, comfortable, Christmas read :)
