A gorgeous, heart-warming read which is perfect for Christmas,’ PORTOBELLO BOOK BLOG

Christmas with the family. Cosy, relaxing…and a total nightmare?

Driving home for Christmas, Beth has everything she wants. The kids and the house, the career and the husband. So why is it that when the New Year comes, she can’t stop thinking about her old college boyfriend?

Her husband Daniel is tasked with bringing a struggling school up to scratch, but when family life catches up to him, can he be a good father and a good teacher at the same time?

Beth’s sister Lou has just been dumped…again. Single and childless, she can’t help but be jealous of her sibling’s success. But is the grass really always greener?

It’s a Wonderful Life is a heart-warming novel about the lives that could have been, and what happens when you start to question the choices you made…

Firstly a big thank you to the Avon team for sending me this beautiful festive book .

I loved everything about it and it completely exceeded my expectations for it.

Yes its a Christmas book but i believe this could be enjoyed at any season .

The characters are all very different and each bring their  own complex stories !

From reading the separate narratives it kept the story fresh and fun .

One of the main themes in this book is about thinking the grass is greener and maybe wondering what if ? At times in life we are all going to experience these feelings and the question is what do you do ?

This is a warm fun read and i will certainly look forward to reading more from this author.

One of my favorite parts features a Labrador …..heaven knows why when mine drives me mad lol .

The book starts at Christmas and finishes the following Christmas…will things remain the same ??? Is it  a wonderful life ?? 

Really recommend this uplifting read especially to finish 2016 with .
