A delightful story following the search for Christmas perfection!
Working for a department store where Christmas arrives in August, Eve prefers her own festivities to be low key with nothing more complicated than an oven ready turkey and frozen peas while she spends the day in her pyjamas.
Unfortunately, this year her husband has invited his best friend to visit, the glamorous and sophisticated Abby, and Eve reluctantly decides that she needs to inject a little sparkle into their laid back and slightly shabby Christmas.
So the celebrations are upgraded to include champagne and canapes along with homemade gravy and organic turkey and plans are made for a Christmas that looks as though it has emerged from the pages of a glossy magazine.
But even the best laid plans can go wrong and as Eve struggles with her mini Yorkshire puddings and an interfering cat, she is suddenly faced with an unexpected guest and an explosive secret that threatens to put her vision of a perfect Christmas in jeopardy.
I loved this heart-stopping story, Julie Butterfield’s latest release. When Eve’s husband invites his best friend Abby to spend Christmas at their house it starts something in Eve and what I can only describe is she turns into a Christmas-Zilla!
We have all had the thought of putting on the perfect Christmas – just like we see in glossy magazines but thats as far as most of us go…. not Eve, not this year! This is a real fun book, and as always, easy to read. Julie Butterfield gets the characters in her stories so perfect its simply magical. I found it very difficult to put down and go do ‘life’ stuff….. so much so, I took myself off to Costa in town and had a few Black Forrest and Cream Hot Chocolates (awesome btw you gotta try it!) and it was just perfect to get my mind going along with Eve. By the time I was ready to leave the coffee shop I was already planning on the changes I wanted in my flat ahead of the festive season.
This is a true magical Christmas story and I think it would be perfect on the screen….. can someone get Netflix or Hallmark on the phone!
