  • Family Christmas

    Thank you NetGalley, Bella Osborne and Avon Books UK for the ARC of One Family Christmas. This is my personal review. Lottie is determined to have one last family Christmas no matter what! From start to finish this is a book that has everything in it you could imagine in several books, but it is all in this story. Family- friends- cooking- laughter- love – mystery- fun and I could go on and on but you just need to read this wonderfully written book and know you have spent time with a family you want to meet in life. I am thankful I got to spend time in between the pages of this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fabulous Story, Wonderful Characters!

    Another fantastic Christmas read; this is pure entertainment all the way! Lottie's Nana has provided a family Christmas every year; so on the first yuletide with her - and the last in the family home - Lottie thinks it's more important than ever that they all get together to celebrate for one last time. This year will be very different, however, as Lottie - not known for her prowess in the kitchen - has volunteered to cover all the meals. Added to the family turning up, a stray dog crashes the party and everyone seems to be hiding a secret. Can they survive the annual get-together? This is a great book on two levels: it's a good solid family drama, plump and ready to burst with everything going on and the mood is constantly lifted by the humour peppered throughout. The family dynamics are completely realistic; the inclusion of the pets gives so many opportunities for laughter and Bella Osborne never misses. We all have our own family issues and I'm sure that this will raise memories for every reader, but the hilarity kept me reading long after I should have laid the book aside last night. Wonderful characters, a great story and giggles aplenty make this one sparkle from first to last, leaving me with a great big grin on my face. Absolutely recommended and worth all five glittering stars!

  • A Wonderful Read

    A wonderful read. No one’s life is perfect and as I start reading my glut of Christmas fiction, I find it refreshing to come across a story that shows family life how it really is. That one relative who makes the grand claim on being a death's door, the mother who is afraid of being lone, an uncle who is less than perfect, a brother who is trying move one and our protagonist who is finding the idea of moving on a little overwhelming. I love the quirky characters, the animals, and the feeling of what a family Christmas is really like, cutthroat, funny, and imperfect, behind the curtains and Christmas lights. Definitely one of my favourite novels this year.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Crazy family Christmas

    This is a cracking read with a lovely main character and a whole host of very different characters which make up her family. It’s definitely a Christmas none of them would forget with one event and revelation after another but it flows so well that you can’t help wondering what’s going to go wrong next! It’s warm hearted, funny and sometimes emotional but ultimately feel good. This is actually a great read for any time of the year.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Very entertaining - full of Christmas feeling

    I really loved this book, it was set over a very chaotic Christmas with lots of mishaps along the way, very funny! Lottie had fairly recently moved back in to Henbourne Manor with her Gran, who unfortunately has just died quite suddenly. Her Gran always hosted the family Christmas and made sure everyone attended and, as the house is now being sold, Lottie feels it is her responsibility to make sure everyone attends their last Christmas together at the Manor. So attending the big family gathering is Zach (Lottie's brother) and his girlfriend Emily (who hasn't met any of the family yet), along with Zach's daughter Jessie. Then there's Angie and her boyfriend Scott (Lottie & Zach's mother), their Uncle David and his wife Nicola and their 19 year old son Rhys, and Great Uncle Bernard who currently lives in the house, and his carer Dayea. Then thrown into the mix is Lottie's old love, vet Joe, who has just moved back home to start up his vet practice. It is absolute mayhem, but in a really nice way! There are secrets and events galore that come out during the course of their stay - engagements, pregnancy, old affairs, a heart attack (sort of), and a surprise birth. How Lottie managed to keep them all together and still stay relatively sane I have no idea! Very, very enjoyable and definitely a 5-star Christmas feeling read as it's set right over Christmas and the New Year and even has some snow! Very entertaining.

    Thanks for your feedback!
