#BookReview: Christmas at Lock Keeper’s Cottage by Lucy Coleman

Christmas at Lock Keeper’s Cottage




Join us for Christmas in the Cotswolds in this perfect festive escape, from the bestselling Lucy Coleman.

Imogen Tolliman never knew her mother. And when an accident robs Immi of her father too, she goes to live with her grandfather, Tollie, in his picturesque lock-keeper’s cottage by the Aysbury marina.

Tollie is the star of the Santa Ahoy Special each Christmas – a festive boat ride along the canal that enthralls both children and adults alike. And as Immi grows up, she starts to appreciate the magical community she is lucky enough to live in.

When Immi meets Gray Adams, she instantly realises he’s someone special. And as their relationship gets serious, they start to plan for the Christmas to beat all Christmases.

But as the day approaches, and the romantic snow showers turn into blizzards, their dream of a Christmas to remember, looks set to be one they’ll never forget – for all the wrong reasons. Can they salvage the festivities, or will old secrets that are finally uncovered turn Immi’s life upside down forever?

Let Lucy Coleman transport you away to a dreamy Cotswolds Christmas full of snowflakes and secretslog fires, mistletoe, friends and much-loved traditions. Perfect for all fans of Trisha Ashley, Holly Martin and Sue Moorcroft.




If you’re looking for a cosy, festive read then you don’t need to look any further. With a wonderful community, Christmas spirit, and a beautiful setting to match. It’s an uplifting read perfect for Christmas reading.

Lucy Coleman has a wonderful writing style and I have absolutely loved reading her previous books. I’m normally drawn in from the very beginning but this seemed to take much longer for me to feel invested in the characters and the story. Not a lot happened until around 60% through the story and then lots seemed to happen towards the end.

There were some jaw-dropping moments in this book and the ending was certainly full of surprises. There were many loose threads at the end that weren’t tied up that I am desperate to find out what happens next. There has got to be a sequel!

The story even has canal boats with Santa Ahoy cruises! It’s such a gentle, easy read that it is perfect for the Christmas period. A heartfelt book that shows the importance of family, life and good friends!

Thank you to the book’s publisher for my copy of this book which I voluntarily read and have honestly reviewed.
