Valentine's Day at the Star and Sixpence by Holly Hepburn

Amazon USA Amazon UK
Review by Suze
Nessie and Sam are feeling quite at home in Little Monkham. They're running the Star and Sixpence together and things are going well. Valentine's Day will be a special event at their village pub. They've hired a famous chef to make a wonderful dinner for their guests. They're taking care of all the couples in the village, but will there also be room for their own love life?
I love the Star and Sixpence, it's such a wonderful fictional place. It feels cozy and warm. Nessie and Sam are sisters. I really like stories about sisters and enjoy reading this series so much because they're an interesting pair. Nessie is the more quiet one of the two, but she's becoming braver. I especially enjoyed reading the scene in which she and Owen have a drink together at the end of Valentine's Day.
 I love romantic holidays and could totally picture the meal and the guests. It was fun to read about the inhabitants of Little Monkham again. Holly Hepburn's stories are great. She's chosen a fantastic setting and her main characters are fabulous. I think this series is fun and am already looking forward to the next novella. 


  1. I'm reading this tonight. I love the name `Star and Sixpence`, it sounds so cosy.

    1. I totally agree with that, I wish I could have a drink there :).

  2. I read this last night. I want to read the others now.
