Kate is the USA Today-bsetselling author of over 60 books of women's fiction and romance. She is the author of the Hartley-by-the-Sea series, set in England's Lake District and published by Penguin. She is also, under the name Katharine Swartz, the author of the Tales from Goswell books, a series of time-slip novels set in the village of Goswell.

She likes to read romance, mystery, the occasional straight historical and angsty women's fiction; she particularly enjoys reading about well-drawn characters and avoids high-concept plots.

Having lived in both New York City and a tiny village on the windswept northwest coast of England, she now resides in a market town in Wales with her husband, five children, and an overly affectionate Golden Retr

So inspiring! I especially liked reading about Charles Simeon, because I didn't know much of his life before reading, and I used to attend the church where he pastored for 54 years.

This book was very compulsive reading! The author really captures the sleep-deprived blur of having a new baby. I wish the twist had been hinted at a little earlier; it felt slightly out of the blue but the book still kept me up well past my bedtime! ...more

“She realised with an intense, wonderful rush that love didn't make you weak. It made you vulnerable, but it also made you strong.”
Kate Hewitt, The Greek Tycoon's Convenient Bride

“You had the unimaginable luxury of thinking deep thoughts and pursuing endless intellectual conversations, of reveling in simple pleasures with the implicit permission to be totally self-absorbed. Then you grew up, and life hit you in the face with a two-by-four.”
Kate Hewitt, Redemption Falls: A Littleton Novel

“scruff of the sheep’s neck, the dog by his heels. “Need a hand?” He stretched a hand out which Claire grabbed gratefully. She clambered up the ditch alongside him, until they were all standing, man, woman, dog, and sheep, at the edge of a snowy field without a house or building in sight. “Thank you,” he said, his voice gruff. “I couldn’t have got her out on my own.” He nodded towards her boots. “You’re soaked.”
Kate Hewitt, A Yorkshire Christmas
