We’re so excited to introduce you to the brand new novel from Heidi Swain, Underneath the Christmas Tree, coming to a bookshop near you in October!


Wynter’s Trees is the home of Christmas. For the people of Wynmouth it’s where they get their family Christmas tree, and where Christmas truly comes to life.

But for Liza Wynter, it’s a millstone around her neck. It was her father’s pride and joy but now he’s gone, she can’t have anything to do with it. Until her father’s business partner decides to retire and she must go back to handle the transition to his son Ned.

When Liza arrives, she discovers a much-loved business that’s flourishing under Ned’s stewardship. And she’s happy to stay and help for the Christmas season, but then she has other plans. But will the place where she grew up make her change her mind? And can it weave its Christmas cheer around her heart…?

Underneath the Christmas Tree is the perfect festive read, promising snowfall, warm fires and breath-taking seasonal romance!

Hello my loves! Thank you so much for checking out this fabulous feature revealing the stunning cover for Underneath the Christmas Tree which is scheduled for release in October. Before you say it, I know it’s only May and the festive season feels like forever away but the Books and the City Team and I have been working flat out on this cover for weeks and we simply couldn’t keep a lid on it for a second longer. I don’t know about where you are, but the weather is still far from summery here in Norfolk, so today felt like the ideal time to give you a peek at the festive fun to come.

I hope you love the design as much as I do. I know I have a habit of saying it, but I think it really could be my favourite so far! The cosy colour and fabulous design fit the plot perfectly and I’m so excited to be taking you to the seaside for Christmas. Wynmouth was such a hit with you all last year and I just knew the surrounding countryside had a story of its own to tell. Liza, Ned and the gang are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Wynter’s Trees to celebrate the festive season, as am I!

With love,

Heidi x
