The Star and Sixpence is a pub in Little Monkham a village far away from the bright lights of London where it’s now owners Nessie and Sam come from.
Their story has been told through a number of short stories over the course of 2016 and I came to it in the Summer but the story progressed through Autumn and it finishes as it should I suppose at Christmas.
I caught up with Autumn, where Nessie and Sam are embracing village life and getting into the Bonfire spirit, whilst their own personal fireworks are going off around them.
As Christmas fast approaches, everything is settling down at the pub and it is becoming popular and successful in the village. But for Nessie and Sam it is not all plain sailing.
Nessie has to contend with an ex mother in law and Sam is missing her film star boyfriend.
However this book brings everything together and has a most satisfying ending. I could quite happily read it all again.
All of the novellas, are now available to purchase in one book A Year at the Star and Sixpence from 29th December 2016. Of course if you cannot wait until then, you can purchase them all separately.
I look forward to the next set of books from Holly Hepburn in 2017.
