Product description

Review

Fabulous. Laugh-out-loud funny, moving and as cuddly as Santa Claus, this is perfect for snuggling up with over the Christmas holidays (Cosmopolitan)

I loved Comfort and Joy, a hilarious, bawdy yet touching portrait of Christmas over three years (Jilly Cooper Guardian Books of the Year)

So kindly and funny and affectionate that you could probably warm your hands on it. Miraculously, this is a feel-good story that manages not to be saccharine. There are a great many good jokes here ... but concealed amid the fun, like silver coins in a Christmas pudding, is a serious theme. This is a book you could safely give to practically anyone. Snap up plenty of copies to hand around under the tree (Spectator)

Touching...it will make you laugh, maybe make you cry and keep you reading past bedtime (Lauren Laverne Grazia)

A wickedly funny, painfully honest look at families, festivities and romantic love (Marie Claire)

Witty enough to make you laugh out loud, but there are moments of real emotion that keep the book from being too light (Psychologies)

Tender, tough, schmaltzy, witty and heart-warming all at once. Knight has a great comic touch - there are some wonderfully rude bits and a fantastic rant about the ridiculous expectations piled on 21st-century women to be perfect - and writes with a deceptive lightness. At the heart of this funny, affectionate novel is an acknowledgement that families, like love, come in odd shapes and sizes, and that both matter more than anything (Metro)

A superb ear for dialogue...wonderfully comic (Evening Standard)

Riotously high in laughs and glamour. I defy a festive grump not to be cheered by it (Independent Books of the Year)

Fast-paced and funny (Women & Home)
