'Wise, insightful, beautiful written and sprinkled with Christmas joy - I adored this book' Milly Johnson
Everyone adores Christmas . . .
Especially Lizzy Kingham. But this year, she is feeling unloved and under-appreciated by her family. The present-buying, decorating and food shopping have all been left to her. So she wonders ... what would happen if she ran away and left them to it?
Lizzy heads to her favourite place: a beach hut on the golden sands of Everdene. There she meets an unlikely collection of new friends, all running away from something. But the spirit of Christmas gets under Lizzy's skin: soon the fairy lights are twinkling and the scent of mulled wine mingles with the sea air.
Back at Pepperpot Cottage, her family are desperate to find her. For Christmas isn't Christmas without Lizzy. Can they track her down in time and convince her she means the world to them, every day of the year?
Bursting with love, hope, forgiveness - and plenty of Christmas cheer - this is the perfect stocking filler!
***Veronica Henry's next beach hut novel, A Wedding at the Beach Hut, is available to pre-order now!***
