A big family. A whole lot of secrets. A Christmas to remember…
This year, Lottie is hosting one last big family Christmas at the home she grew up in – just like her Nana would have wanted.
But when her relatives descend on the old manor house, Lottie gets more than she bargained for. Every family has its secrets, but in this family, everybody has one!
So, between cooking a Christmas dinner, keeping tensions at bay and a stray dog out of mischief, she has plenty on her plate (and not just misshapen sausage rolls and a frozen turkey). And then her first love shows up – nine years after he walked out of her life.
Can Lottie make their last family Christmas one to remember… for the right reasons?
A festive treat to curl up with this Christmas, perfect for fans of Milly Johnson and Trisha Ashley.
Book Review by Kelly Lacey
Lottie is faced with the task of hosting the annual family Christmas all by herself. As the clan gathers with high expectations can she hold it all together or will it be an epic fail?
This book does what it says on the tin, it brings you into the heart of a family Christmas. So many “Christmas” books have one chapter where it happened to be that holiday time. But no, Bella Osbourne delivers the goods and Santa would be very proud.
This is the only Christmas themed book I managed to read due to work commitments and I am just so lucky that I chose it. I loved every moment with the family. I even laughed out very loud which is something I don’t tend to do whilst reading.
I really enjoyed the pets they where are a huge part of the story too. Duchess the cat was my favourite and I think she was rather posh.
The book made me feel so many emotions ranging from happiness to melancholy memories. It ticks every box a reader could possibly want. You leave the book a better person. It makes you reflect on your own family and the ghosts of Christmas’s gone by.
I am really hoping that we will have more books from this cast of characters as I don’t want to leave them.
This book is for anyone who loves feel-good fiction with heart.
Five enormous stars!
