    A really lovely feel-good Christmas read

    I loved this book, an absolutely perfect Christmas read, set in snowy Aspen at Snowfall Lodge, glamorous tree house accommodation that sounded so perfect I want to book right now(!), snowmobiles, dogsledding and lots of drama. There's the UK contingent - Maggie & Nick live in Honeysuckle Cottage in Oxford and are married, but have been living apart for a few months (unbeknownst to their adult daughters) and are planning on divorcing having just drifted apart over the years. They have two daughters - Rosie (living in the US, surprises them with news of her Christmas wedding to Dan in 4 weeks!), and Katie (A & E doctor, struggling with her job, VERY prickly). Then there's the US contingent - Catherine (Dan's widowed Mother, professional wedding planner, owner of Snowfall Lodge, lovely lady but very organised), Dan (the other half of the wedding, laid back, nice guy) and Jordan (Dan's best man - tree surgeon, lives in a lovely cabin he built himself in the woods, fabulous character - my favourite!). So with the surprise wedding all Christmas plans are changed and the UK contingent fly out to Aspen to be there for the Christmas wedding. Maggie & Nick are hiding the fact that they're divorcing and over-doing 'pretending' they're still the loving couple, Rosie feels a bit rushed about the wedding initially and Katie is just... annoying! I liked all the characters apart from her, I found her really irritating throughout most of the book. She didn't agree with the wedding and went out to Aspen to try and upset it all, thinking Rosie didn't know her own mind and needed to be 'helped' into realising it was the wrong decision. I really liked the way we had all the different perspectives from the different generations, each working through their own issues that they were keeping secret from one another. But when the secrets started coming out, mainly due to prickly Katie's interference, barriers came down and everyone started being a lot more honest about their feelings about... well everything! Their marriages, their lives, their jobs, etc., of course not without a lot of drama thrown into the mix in the meantime! But it all worked out absolutely perfectly in the end. A really lovely feel-good read in a magical Christmas setting. Perfect!

    A feel good story

    Everybody loves a wedding and there is always something special about a Christmas wedding. When Rosie calls from America in the middle of the night to tell her parents she is marrying Dan who she has only known for a few months - alarm bells start ringing.. Maggie is over protective of Rosie because she suffers from severe Asthma. Her eldest daughter Katie is a doctor and doesn't cause her any concerns at all as she is the stronger of the two. But Maggie has a secret that her and Nick have been living apart for several months and are getting divorced - she is determined not to tell the girls until after the wedding but can they keep up the pretence over the week. Katie also has a secret that she was attacked at work and is now considering giving up being a doctor - but she is worried of telling her parents so can she keep up the pretence over the week. Rosie is ecstatic about getting married until she talks to Katie and the doubts start to kick in but as the wedding is in less than 3 weeks she is scared of telling Dan that things are moving too quick. Can she work out if this is what she wants and keep the doubts from her family. As they all meet together - tensions start to build as they each try to hide their secrets until the fall out two days before the wedding. Will it go ahead or not? You start to feel for each of them as they try to deal with the issues in their lives and feeling unable to talk to each other about it. The story is told from Maggie, Rosie and Katie's perspective and their feelings and doubts is quite repetitive which is a little annoying but does help to build up the tension. A lovely, feel good book.
