This collection includes the stories Last Christmas, Bittersweet, The Bachelor, Albert’s Christmas and the bonus short story, The Family Jewels.
Last Christmas (Book #1)
Father Whitworth O’Grady is tired of the same old Christmas Eve ritual. A ritual that consists of watery vegetable soup and a game of cribbage with the ageing Father Stanton.
When Father Stanton catches a nasty cold and has to decline a generous invitation to a meal with the Summers-Day family, Father O’Grady feels no guilt in popping along without him.
With the prospect of snow, cake and a near-fatal penny, could this turn into Father O’Grady’s most eventful Christmas Eve ever?
Bittersweet (Book #2)
When Venetia was a little girl, her grandpa would regale her with magical tales of the shop he used to own in the mysterious village of Bumpkinton. But when he died, the tales died with him.
Thirty years later, Venetia and her husband chance upon an old photograph in the attic. It ignites a spark within Venetia, and she resolves to buy the shop from Grandpa Eddie’s tales.
As the inhabitants of Bumpkinton welcome the newcomers with open arms, why is Amelia, the resident busybody, interested in the shop? And why is it so important that it doesn’t become a burger bar?
The Bachelor (Book #3)
If there is one thing Fenton knows, it’s that he’s a ladies man. With a stylish suit, perfect hair and a seductive smile that can send women weak at the knees, he knows he’s got it all.
However, Fenton has a secret. He’s no longer single.
As the Bumpkinton Singles Night draws close, Fenton arrives in the village to woo the ladies. Even a secret lover won’t stop him from indulging in his favourite hobby, flirting, but how much can he get away with?
Albert’s Christmas (Book #4)
There’s a Christmas crisis in Bumpkinton.
The clock is ticking and Fathers Whitworth O’Grady and Harrison Stawker are running out of time to find someone for a very special job. As they race around the inaugural Christmas Markets looking for the right man to fill some very big black boots, their search is thwarted at every turn by protests, flirty florists, and a vindictive journalist.
As all hope seems lost, until someone steps forward to save Christmas.
Someone they did not expect…

When he is called to an attempted suicide on a stormy summer’s night, Michael has the chance to save a life, but will it be his own?
