If you love the TV shows The Great British Bake-off and Escape to the Country, and if you think the world really is a better place with tea and scones, you'll love this charming and heart-warming series.

Imagine a quintessential Cotswolds village nestled between gently rolling hills; with a High Street full of butchers, bakers and candlestick makers, independent and quirky shops, pubs and restaurants serving world-class food and local produce; a Norman church, and curving streets lined with cottages built from the local honey-coloured stone.

It’s a place where bluebells grow wildly in the woods, where it’s not unusual to see children herding a gaggle of geese down a country lane, and it’s a place where you’ll want to settle in and get to know the locals.

Welcome to Brookford.

Sometimes home is a person, not a place...

Max Henderson loves her life in the idyllic English village of Brookford. Her family is nearby, and her job allows her to indulge her passion for growing, cooking and writing about food.

When Max’s husband, James, tells her he’s been transferred to New York, Max is thrilled for him ‒ it’s the role he’s always aspired to. But as excited as she is for James, she’s torn between the thought of leaving her home, the people she cares about and her own ambitions, and the possibility of a new start for her and James. To complicate matters, the New York move is just the first in a series of blows that leave Max reeling.

If Max follows her heart, will she have to leave her dreams behind? Or can they guide her home to the man she loves?

From village life in The Cotswolds to the lakes and mountains of Queenstown in New Zealand, Wish You Were Here is heart-warming foodie fiction and the first novel in the Escape to the Country series.

Because life is better with tea and scones...

Claire Mansfield is the host of the popular reality baking TV show Time For Tea and possibly the nicest person on British television – until a secret from her past ignites a media storm.

Seeking shelter, Claire runs to Brookford, the small English village she left behind nearly twenty years ago. Also back in town is Owen Gallagher, the man who broke her teenage heart and who is now one of the hottest chefs in the country.

Just when Claire thinks she might have a second chance with both Owen and a new TV show, that too is threatened. Someone wants to see her destroyed – and they’re not going to rest until the job is finished. Claire, and her new friends – the women of The Cotswolds Culinary and Cookbook Society – must find the truth before it ruins her career for good, and with it, any chance of happiness with Owen.

If you love Great British Bake Off, Escape To The Country, and cozy culinary mysteries with a feel-good side-serve of romance, you'll love Escape To Curlew Cottage.

Perfect for fans of Jill Mansell, Carole Matthews, Cathy Bramley, Lucy Diamond, Katie Fforde, Milly Johnson and Erica James.
