The perfect curl-up-with-the-Cadbury's book to devour over the Christmas holidays ... It's fun, festive and surprisingly emotional (Stellar magazine) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
We first met the Craigs in the Irish Top Ten bestseller Driving Home for Christmas and now it's time to return to glorious Huntersbrook and soak up the Irish atmosphere. Ideal for fans of Patricia Scanlan.See all Product description

Extensive renovations and changes have been made to the property and just as the family are making the final preparations, things happen which mean that the house suddenly has to take a back seat.
Will the family be able to pull together to get over this hurdle and get the house ready for their very first function?
I really enjoyed this book, it was good to meet up again with the Craig family a couple of years down the line to see how their lives have changed. Having also read “Perfect Wives” it was good to catch up with Jodi Ludlum a couple of years down the line to see what life had dealt her since the end of that book.
This book was an easy but very enjoyable read. I am glad that I had read “Driving Home for Christmas” and Perfect Wives first. I do hope there is a 3rd book featuring the exploits of the Craig family to see how their lives pan out.
I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review. Thanks to the author Emma Hannigan and publisher Headline.
This book revisited our characters from Driving Home for Christmas and follows on with the families plan to open Huntersbrook House up to the public for venue hire. As the family pull together to get everything in place to make this venture work so they don't lose their family home, we begin to see what changes have occurred to Joey, Pippa and Lainey's private lives too.
I loved catching up with these characters and I was surprised how much they wound me up and made me want to throttle each one of them and yet I loved them at the same time! I think if people hadn't read the first book then their opinion of Joey may differ with just reading this book as he seems to have let his career go to his head in this book where as I thought he was a loving character in the previous book so having this background gave his character the benefit of the doubt. Typical Pippa is yet again unpredictable and a walking danger! But I like how her character progresses in this book. Lainey I really struggled with some points I wanted to hug her and I my heart went out to her then on other times she really got on my wick. Each chapter was alternated between each of the three siblings which worked really well for this book.
To add to this book we are also treated to an insight to the lovely Jodi from Perfect Wives who I loved and I was so pleased to see her arrival in this book and see what is going on in her life now.
This was a feel good read great for the cold winter nights ahead to sit and dissolve into this storyline. It reminds us that family should always be there for each other to pull each other through trying situations. There were some sensitive issues that were effecting our main characters and once again Emma manages to write about these in a delicate but informative way.
I do think this book could be read as a stand alone but I do recommend reading Driving Home for Christmas so you can get to know the background of these characters. This is a book that has a lovely winter cover and a storyline with a touch of festivity but this book could be read any time of year. This is yet another winner for me from Emma Hannigan she has become a firm favourite of mine.
