The brilliant laugh-out-loud festive novel from the Number One bestselling author.
Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) adores Christmas. It’s always the same – Mum and Dad hosting, carols playing, Mum pretending she made the Christmas pudding, and the next-door neighbours coming round for sherry in their terrible festive jumpers.
And now it’s even easier with online bargain-shopping sites – if you spend enough you even get free delivery. Sorted!
But this year looks set to be different. Unable to resist the draw of craft beer and smashed avocado, Becky’s parents are moving to ultra-trendy Shoreditch and have asked Becky if she’ll host Christmas this year. What could possibly go wrong?
With sister Jess demanding a vegan turkey, husband Luke determined that he just wants aftershave again, and little Minnie insisting on a very specific picnic hamper – surely Becky can manage all this, as well as the surprise appearance of an old boyfriend and his pushy new girlfriend, whose motives are far from clear . . .
Will chaos ensue, or will Becky manage to bring comfort and joy to Christmas?
Firstly a huge thank you to Becky and the publishers for my gorgeous copy to arrive. Which arrived with festive goodies. And apologies in my delay in reading.
I haven’t read all this series so wasnt sure if this would affect my enjoyment of the book. But i neednt have worried as i loved every page.
I devoured this tonight and was funny, uplifting and full of christmas cheer.
Becky is a excellent charactar who certainly adds her own touch to whatever she does.
This had me laughing and thinking oh my several times!
Families and christmas …not always plain sailing.
Highly recommend for a great fun festive read.
