The unexpected arrival of a grandchild in a most unexpected way also had me cheering them on - particularly as I was heavily pregnant when I read this book, and was hoping I wouldn't go into labour in this way!)
The whole cast of characters was a dream to read about and I will, as always, be looking forward to the next release.
I think the thing was I sat down, saw the cover, saw the tag line by Trisha Astley (not how I would describe the book at all) and I expected it to be full of festive cheer but with a few mishaps or problems.
There were problems and it was heavy and not at all festive really for the first half, by the second half it really picked up and was like a different book, I was pleased the storylines came together, the feel was more Christmas and I was not at that point sorry I bought it, where-by for the first half I had been.
I found the characters mostly annoying and didn't like some comments on house styles and villages that wern't polite and were not needed in the story. I thought Chloe and Tom really spoilt and I found the Husband keeping a secret of the girl in poverty unrealistic, and that it would be ignored by the wife when it looked so suspicious.
So glad it picked up in the second half, but I could not recommend the book.
The daughter and son in this book could have come from an article entitled What Is All Wrong With This Country. Jobless and refusing to look for work, expecting someone else to pay their way, look after the children (both physically and financially,) continuing to produce children with no stable relationship or means of support, sleeping with complete strangers. It wasn't as if they were loving towards their parents to balance out their behaviour. When I got to the part where the daughter ruined their first holiday in years and they came home to find their son in THEIR bed with a stranger (and their response was to go and meekly sleep on the sofa) - well I gave up.
I don't find it interesting to read about total doormats, who put up with absolutely foul relations because " it's faaamily".
We are reintroduced to the characters we know and love from a previous book of Carole Matthews, That Loving Feeling which only made this book have even more of a warm cosy feel to it because of the familiarity to the characters. What I love about this group of characters and their story lines are that they are so down to earth that it often feels as though you are reading about the story of the people next door because it all feels so realistic.
I love all of the characters but I have to say on more than one occasion I wanted to throttle them mainly Chloe who quite clearly is used to having everything handed to her on a plate and finds it all too easy to expect her mum to babysit at a drop of a hat because her little boy is obviously a pain when it comes to her social life but then I equally want to throttle Juliet just as much for giving in to her daughter so easy which does Chloe no favours but having said that I still love both of the characters!
This is a perfect Christmas read and it gives you a real festive feeling. The family are building up to the big day and we get to be with them on a traditional Christmas day opening presents and sitting down to a Christmas dinner. There are many little story lines going on through this book involving each of the many characters and yet Carole manages to tie them all up and bring them together so they all come together to make a perfect read.
I think this book brings out every emotion from excitement to family troubles, heartache to romance. Oh and how can I forget the humour!Read more ›
