Claire and Matt are divorced but decide what’s best for their daughter Scarlett is to have a ‘normal’ family Christmas. They can’t agree on whose idea it was, or who said they should bring their new partners. But someone did – and it’s too late to pull the plug.

Claire brings her new boyfriend Patrick, a seemingly eligible Iron-Man-in-Waiting. Mattbrings the new love of his life Alex, funny, smart, and extremely patient. Scarlett, their daughter, brings her imaginary friend Posey. He’s a rabbit.

Together the five (or six?) of them grit their teeth over Organized Fun activities, drinking a little too much after bed-time, oversharing classified secrets about their pasts and, before you know it, their holiday is a powder keg that ends – where this story starts – with a tearful, frightened, call to the police…

But what happened? They said they’d all be adults about this.

Firstly a big thank you to Lauren for my copy and having me on the tour.

Fresh voice in fiction with this debut of the summer.

Very relatable and i imagine quite relevent in todays society.

I certainly wouldn’t put myself into such a diffiult tense situation.

The charactar i enjoyed reading about the most was alex ironically as hasnt got kids of her own.

I personally found it a bit slow paced in places .

Families are difficult so imagine the difficulties when 2 families come together…

It wasn’t destined to end well but sometimes in order for change to happen it takes something drastic...
