With Love at Christmas - Carole Matthews

Good Afternoon Bookworms!

My third suggestion for a Christmas audio book is With Love at Christmas by Carole Matthews.

Blurb courtesy of Goodreads website.
Juliet Joyce adores Christmas. She loves the presents, the tree, the turkey, the tinsel, everything. Already the festive spirit is upon her, which is just as well as this Christmas things are starting to get out of hand.

Her son Tom is out of work and bringing home a slew of unsuitable partners; pregnant daughter Chloe and her little boy have moved back in; Juliet's father, Frank, is getting over a heartbreak of his own and Rita, her eccentric mother, is behaving more erratically each day. And has the chaos got too much for Juliet's husband Rick?

With the big day fast approaching, Juliet hopes that she can stop everything spiralling out of control.  

Published 2012 by Sphere.

This entertaining novel had me giggling whilst I was wrapping gifts and crying whilst baking biscuits.  The family experience a roller coaster of emotions during the festive period but Juliet's love of Christmas shines through every problem and crisis. 

The Joyce family is a collection of loveable misfits and in the run up to the big day Juliet has more than mince pies and mistletoe on her mind. Juliet brims with generosity towards family and friends sometimes to the detriment of her own feelings.  This is definitely a feel-good Christmas story and a must if you are a Carole Matthews fan. 

This is a sequel to That Loving Feeling published in 2009.

I will have another review on New Years Eve but would like to take this opportunity to wish you wonderful Christmas blessings!  x
