The book opens just as all the employees are getting ready for the annual Fossil Oils Christmas Party where it is rumoured that careers (along with relationships) can be made an broken. With all the mayhem of a Christmas Party – parts of this book will be familiar to anyone who has ever attended an office Christmas Party however big or small.
There is festive fun and frolics along the way but there is a slightly darker side to the tale – a warning to all those who live to work ……
In all this is a superb festive book full of twists and turns but also plenty of laughs. Perfect to curl up with on a cold winters evening with as glass of mulled wine. Once again Carole Matthews has not disappointed. It is not any surprise that this is her 25th novel! I am slightly disappointed that I won’t be attending my office Christmas Party this year if it is going to be anything slightly like the party held by Fossil Fuels.
Would highly recommend this book.
Louise is a single mum trying desperately hard to get along at her new job with Fossil Oil. However, her boss Tyler thinks nothing of making her life very difficult and as the Christmas Party approaches she wonders whether she can manage to keep her job whilst keeping Tyler firmly at arm’s length. The whole book only spans a few days but its absolutely brilliant how Carole has done it. We meet Tyler’s wife Kirsten, the man in charge of Fossil Oil Lance and his wife Melissa, all with their own issues.
The characters are wonderful and each one keeps you reading until the end. There is plenty of humour thrown in and the scene involving Louise and her boss Tyler in the Library is legendary. Although this book was set over a short time span it definitely worked and I enjoyed every page. Although this isn’t my favourite Matthews book (there are far too many to choose from) it’s certainly a great read and would make a fab Christmas Present. As usual I will look forward to her next one.
