Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) adores Christmas. However this yr is ready to be totally different. Her dad and mom usually host, however they’ve determined to maneuver to modern Shoreditch, and have requested Becky to host Christmas this yr. What can go incorrect? Becky’s sister, Jess, needs a vegan turkey, she doesn’t know what to purchase Luke, and everybody retains giving her strategies on find out how to do Christmas. Will she pull it off?
I didn’t realise after I picked this up from the library that it was a part of a sequence. I don’t assume that basically affected the story, and I used to be by no means actually confused. The one half I used to be uncertain of was how Becky and Jess had been half sisters, as that was almost definitely defined in an earlier novel. I’ve been studying thrillers for ages now, and I used to be craving one thing a bit extra lighthearted. This hit the spot completely. Becky was so naturally humorous and her relationship with purchasing was fuel. It jogged my memory of the Aisling Collection and of Marian Keyes. It was really easy to learn very fulfilling. Would positively advocate in case you’re searching for one thing that’s not like a thriller or homicide.
