Book Review: A Winter Wedding at Mistletoe Gate Farm by Helen J Rolfe *AD gifted

I was provided with a free ebook of A Winter Wedding at Mistletoe Gate Farm by Helen J Rolfe ahead of the blog tour.

Grab a mince pie (or any baked goods really) and a glass of mulled wine, and settle in for a heart-warming story of festive joy. This book will put a massive smile on your face, it is so full of love. And it's perfect for reading in the run up to Christmas. You may even get ideas.

I haven't read any of the other Heritage Cove books, but I definitely will be. This can absolute be read on its own but now I'm curious about the rest of the population of the village!

A Winter Wedding at Mistletoe Gate Farm by Helen J Rolfe book cover

It's almost Christmas in Heritage Cove - the village tree is all lit-up, the bakery is full of festive treats, the tea rooms and waffle shack are welcoming locals inside out of the cold, and for some of the residents of the Cove, snow might not be the only thing they're wishing for this year...

Tilly is overjoyed when an estranged relative comes to Heritage Cove wanting to make amends. But as she lets him in to her life and Tilly’s Bits ‘n’ Pieces - the shop she owns and loves - her friends aren’t so sure whether everything is quite as it seems.

Benjamin’s parents run Mistletoe Gate Farm, selling Christmas trees, wreaths and mistletoe. Benjamin has always thought his family was as firmly rooted in the ground as the rows of Norway Spruce and Fraser Firs. But when he finds a letter that rocks his world he realises he may not be able to do anything to prevent the changes coming their way.

Benjamin and Tilly have been falling for one another since the summer but will family complications put an abrupt stop to what is looking like a burgeoning romance?

With festive cheer weaving its way through the Cove as two local favourites plan their wedding, there’s more than one relationship that could receive a little Christmas magic…

5 Word Review: Love, community, Christmas, wedding, friendship.


I wish I was the barest smidgeon as creative as Tilly is. She's like a living Pinterest board and I am jealous. She's also such an utterly good person that you can't help but love her. I would love to delve into her shop and find some treasure.

Tilly is lovely. She's so kind and generous and wickedly creative (have I mentioned yet? The jealousy of a fictional character is real).

Benjamin is just as bloomin' lovely. With his family farm, it could be all to easy for him to be cynical and sick to death of Christmas. He cares so much for his family, for everyone around him, and it really does just give you hope for humanity. Seeing his worry for his parents hit me right in the feels.

This book made me so hungry. It is absolutely perfect for reading in a coffee shop as you take a break from shopping. I wished so bad I was sat by the window in a coffee shop with a flavoured latte and a mince pie.

I loved the exploration of community in this book. I've got a feeling it's a running theme in the Heritage Cove books, and one I'm all too eager to read more about. It's the kind of place you want to live yourself, picturesque and lovely, and filled with lovely people. Like a little slice of very British paradise, complete with sometimes grim weather.

This story bring Christmas to you. From the festive feels to the decorations, the mince pies to the community spirit, I am ready for a wonderful Christmas. And I can't wait to read more of the Heritage Cove series.
