Christmas at Clementine Cottage
Curl up with a hot chocolate and enjoy the perfect Christmas with this fabulously festive treat.
Elodie Abbott loves Christmas, so she’s not exactly thrilled when best friend, Iris asks her to go to a village Elodie’s never heard of just as the festive season kicks off, to help Iris sort out her recently deceased, Uncle Stanley’s cottage.
At least there’s an upside. Clementine Cottage is grander than it sounds; the village is idyllic and Archer Rhodes, the owner of the village pub, The Bow and Quiver, is seriously hot. But it doesn’t take a genius to work out Uncle Stanley wasn’t popular.
When Elodie and Iris discover Stanley’s been keeping more than a close eye on all the villagers, they soon start to understand why. Everyone in Clementine Cove appears to have a secret – including Archer Rhodes. And Stanley knew them all.
Elodie and Iris begin to unwrap the village mysteries, but now Elodie’s hiding something of her own. She’s falling for the gorgeous but equally stand-offish Archer, and that could be a problem. Especially if Archer’s secret is as bad as she and Iris believe.
But as the temperature plummets, and the village is blanketed in snow, things soon warm up in Archer’s pub. And with the Christmas festivities in full swing, will Elodie and Iris uncover more than they expect beneath the twinkling lights and Christmas sparkle in Clementine Cove?
This is book 1 in my new, Clementine Cove series, but each book can easily be read as a standalone.

What readers say about this book
"Wow what a wonderful book ,I loved the setting and look forward to other books in the series I wasn’t expecting the ending so that was a nice surprise I was sad the book ended I wanted to know more so as I say looking forward to more books I love the pace of Emily’s books and I love the little details as well as it makes you believe it’s real Another fantastic book I would give it more stars if we could."
"I loved this book! It is set in Clementine Cove and Emily’s wonderful writing enabled me to feel as though I was there myself. I wanted to spend Christmas at Clementine cottage! We are very quickly made aware of one of the more unpleasant characters who lives in the village, the vicar’s sister which really made me want to stand up for the main characters of the book Elodie and Iris. They are lifelong friends who find themselves in Clementine cottage due to the death of the long estranged Uncle Stanley. Elodie and Iris are delightful and fun loving and full of the Christmas spirit. I’m looking forward to meeting them again, to see what happens next. There are lots of secrets in this story that keep you hooked to the very end."
"Wow Emily has done it again. A fantastic read, a real page turner. Didn't want it to end but look forward to more in this series at Clementine Cottage and all the characters."
