I read Jennifer's first full length novel A Beginner's Guide to Salad all the way back in January 2014 and absolutely loved it. So when I saw that she had released a Christmas book called The Mince Pie Mix-Up I was super keen to read.

This is one of the best Christmas reads I have read this year! It was festive throughout the story, unlike some 'Christmas' books that only hint at Christmas and it was a joy to read.

If you like Freaky Friday just as much as I do, or just like it, then I cannot recommend The Mince Pie Mix-Up enough. The difference in the story with this one is it is husband and wife Judy and Calvin who do the body swapping and is of course centred around Christmas time and what ensues is a hilarious, feel good story. It maybe the same concept as Freaky Friday, but it very much stood out as a story on its own and it was all down to a very strange dream and eating some burnt mince pies!

This was one of those stories that I just could not wait to get back into once I got home from work. I genuinely felt all warm and toasty whilst reading this. Jennifer has a brilliant knack at creating characters that you can really empathise with in one way or another and feeling that you are part of the family by the end. She also makes it very funny and light-hearted, I was laughing away quite a lot through this.

There is of course, like with stories similar to this, a wonderful message to take away from it and it is a perfect message to tie in with Christmas. I know I took a few lessons from this, the obvious one of them being that you don't know what it's like to be in someone else's shoes until you are!

I really could go on and on about this wonderful story, but I don't want to give anymore away. If you are looking for a really feel good, festive Christmas read then The Mince Pie Mix-Up is definitely one for your reading pile this Christmas.

A few days ago I was browsing NetGalley, and I stumbled upon Mince Pie Mix- Up on Carina publisher page. I thought what a sparkly book cover and very intriguing title! I haven't read anything by Jennifer Joyce yet so I got quite excited to discover another author! There are just so many wonderful writers out there and because of my little blog I have the privilege to find those authors and get to know their wonderful work of word -art!

Jennifer Joyce has written three novels previously and this Christmas she is bringing out her brand new one The Mince Pie Mix -Up.

It is two weeks till Christmas and for Judy and Calvin the usual festive bickering has already begun. Judy is convinced that her husband Calvin has it way too easy. Calvin thinks Judy is only pottering around, looking after their two offsprings Scott and Charlie and doing a bit of baking- just for fun!

Calvin wishes he could trade his stressful job and obnoxious boss to spend more time with his two children and Judy would love to swap her life with her husband and kick around the house with " NOTHING to worry about!"

Well, their wish may just come true after a magical mince pie mix-up!

I think the title of the book was quite a fit for this book. I adore Judy's and Calvin story. Their constant quibble and complains that the other half has it easy but do they really?

The Mince Pie Mix Up is a hilarious take on life-work-family balance. There is Judy, mother of two, busy and hardworking woman who loves to help where she can. Whether it is her waitressing job at the village tea rooms or juggling her household responsibilities with the usual demands of her children's school and PTA meetings.

Firstly I’d like to thank the publishers for approving my NetGalley request for this eBook. The blurb really intrigued me – I’ve said many times (jokingly of course ;) ) that hubby has it easy, going off to work while I’m at home looking after the kids and house. I was curious to see how swapping places would work out for Calvin and Judy.

As soon as I started reading I found myself smiling because the crazy morning scene playing out in front of me was just so familiar. Even down to the verbal checklist as they were walking out of the door. It was a typical family morning with Judy running round in circles trying to do fifty things at once and this made her an instant hero in my eyes (us busy mums have to stick together)!

There were so many funny moments that had me chuckling to myself as I read. Let me share some of my favourites with you:

Calvin entertaining himself by changing swear words into something more festive.
The moment the switch was discovered.
After the switch when Judy realised she had a new plaything!!
A doggy mess in the kitchen.

The whole idea of switching places with your loved one really got my imagination working overtime and that’s what made this book so enjoyable for me. I just couldn’t help but imagine hubby and I in the same situation – you will do exactly the same when you read this so be prepared.

The Mince Pie Mix-Up was a light-hearted read that was incredibly easy to relate to. Lots of fun!

Like Judy's mince pies, this was a very well-received book. I really enjoyed the tale of Calvin and Judy, who think the other has an easy life - so the Christmas fairy grants their wish and swaps their lives for two weeks.

It's a lighthearted take on relationships, and reflects most busy households... where each parent thinks the other isn't pulling their weight!! Eye-opening for the characters - keeps the reader on their toes as whilst they have the outward appearance of each other, they are still "themselves" inside... so leads to some very amusing episodes.

A good Christmassy read. 4.5* from me.
