Will the gift of friendship save their past, present and future?
Callie has taken multiple jobs to make the money she desperately needs. Her favourite is being the new guide for Lerwick Manor's alpaca walks. But her troublesome past is making it difficult to prove to others that she's learned from her mistakes.
Heather has been content breeding Sheltie sheepdogs and taking care of her grownup daughters. But now she feels that something is missing. Taking the leap into online dating, she makes an unexpected connection to which her daughters react very differently.
Tabitha sells homemade soap at the Stables Gallery, but her true passion is for amateur dramatics. Winning a role in the group's festive production of A Christmas Carol, Tabby is determined to make her mark - but will her growing feelings for fellow actor Rabbie distract her?
As Christmas draws near, can true friendship save the past, present and future of the Lerwick community?
There's only two more sleeps until my final book in the Shetland series is published. I'm excited but incredibly nervous as I hope the finale lives up to the expectation of my dedicated readers. The final tale is narrated by Callie, Heather and Tabitha, who you've briefly met in previous books, enabling the loose threads to be neatly fastened and tidied.
In recent weeks, I've received critiques from book bloggers and reviewers but the true litmus test is my dedicated readers. I rarely know if a blogger or reviewer has read the entire series, whereas my own readers have read each book in order - sometimes several times. I'm sure they could test my memory on a few of the details, if they chose.
Thursday will be a bitter sweet day for me, as I will be waving goodbye to a fabulous cast who have filled my imagination since April 2019!
