If you can ignore the fact that this book is not very Christmassy (and has a somewhat misleading cover!), this is a decent read - very light hearted and enjoyable. I thought the main characters were very good and well developed, I particularly liked Pippa.

I (like many others here) didn't realise that this book was part of a series, but that didn't really spoil my enjoyment of the read. I have docked it one star only because of the misleading Christmas side of it, but I would still recommend this book.

So if it is Christmas reads you are after, I would steer away (perhaps you should try I'm Dreaming of a Wilde Christmas (A laugh-out-loud romantic comedy) or Cold Feet at Christmas which are both fantastic Christmas reads), but otherwise give it a whirl!

This book had only a small Christmas element so I felt the title & cover were misleading & I probably wouldn't have bought it if I'd known.
The hotel protest storyline & merlins was long & a bit dull. I liked the main 3 women but didn't overly warm to any of them.
Turns out this is a sequel so may be its best to read the others to get to know the characters better although this could also be a stand alone.

'Coming Home for Christmas' is set in the small village of Hope Christmas where three close friends all have their own issues to deal with this Christmas. Cat is a TV-chef who is starting to worry she's becoming too old for TV. She is keeping her fingers crossed she will still be able to host her festive cooking show, but at the same time she's busy taking care of her granddaughter Lou Lou. Marianne is the mother of twins, which is already cause for quite hectic days. Things only get worse when her father gets ill and her husband's ex-wife suddenly comes back into their lives in an unexpected way. Pippa knows her marriage to Dan is over, but somehow she can't seem to let go. Not even her new boyfriend Richard is able to make her forget about her happy marriage, until Dan files for divorce. While the three friends have their own issues to deal with, their beloved village is in danger when developer LK Holdings plans to use certain parts of land for a luxurious hotel and spa. Will they be able to handle it all and have the merry Christmas they've hoped for...?

This book is actually the third part of a series, but I had no idea this was the case when I started reading it. Even though the characters have been through a lot and I sometimes had to read certain passages twice to really understand everything that had happened to the different characters, the book can definitely be read as a stand-alone. It only made me more curious about the other books! The novel has a great and well-drawn cast of characters at its core; I loved the switch from the points of view of Cat, Marianne and Pippa, and I couldn't get enough of each of their stories. They were different women, each with their own background and dreams and goals, and I simply loved reading about all three of them.

I Have read all the other books linked to this, and whilst it was lovely to revisit Hope Christmas, I found the story very repetitive and because all 3 couples had a story line, not enough details spent with everyone. Not very Chrsitmassy, but an easy read.

In "Coming Home for Christmas" we return to the town of Hope Christmas to join up with Cat, Noel, Marianne and Gabriel. Having read the previous books I was looking forward to catching up with the residents of this small.

With a new development of a hotel and spa, threatening the peace and quiet of Hope Christmas along with surrounding farmland and woodland.

Marianne and Gabriel are also going through their own set of problems - with Gabriel ex-wife turning up. Pippa is struggling being a single parent with the farm is no longer making money and her and Dan's relationship problems are only aggravating an already bad situation.

On purpose I read this book over the Christmas period hoping for a festive read but it is not festive at all - most disappointing for a book with such a festive title. Putting that to one side the book was boring and I was losing the will to carry on with it quite soon after I had started it. I preserved to the end but wishing with every page I read that I wasn't a person who felt obliged to carry on with books to the end once started. The story was boring, the characters got on my nerves and if I didn't know that Julia Williams could write better novels than I wouldn't be reading any of more of her books. The difference between this book and her latest book 'A Christmas Wish' is stark - you wouldn't think that they were written by the same person.

I definitely would not bother reading this book. If you don't you won't be missing anything and if you so read it you will be wasting precious reading time.
