That pretty much sums up Just how fantastic this book is.

They’re about as funny as chlamydia, as my best friend, Demi, would say.
I’m dressed from top to toe in green Lycra, complete with a pointy hat adorned with a pair of pixie ears, freezing my ass off, in the company of twenty-four children aged four and below. I want to die. The screaming, whining and wailing is on a par with the soothing decibels created by a pneumatic drill.
I gather that’s most of what being an adult is about – pretending you have the answer when really you’re br ...more
Three different women. Three different stages in their relationships. Annie is hoping to rekindle her former marriage, Nina wants to avoid the holidays and men after the recent death of her father, and Holly, still in school, is just starting with her first boyfriend. Love is certainly in the air as these women’s lives buck and weave against the backdrop of a winter wedding at the magical Christmas Tree Farm.

I appreciated that all the main characters were so real, with depth, even though I didn't really like one of them too much. Though they are all connected in some way, they don't know each other at the start of the book. And they aren't all actively looking for ...more

I have read both of the author's previous books so I was delighted to see that she had released a second Christmas book and couldn't wait to get stuck in, I had read the book from cover to cover within hours of getting my hands on a copy!

The book was split into viewpoints from 3 main characters - Nina, Holly and Angie - but it still flowed very well as a whole.
Nina's story had such a sad undertone to it which despite not having suffered the loss she has, I still resonated with. Her story was sympathetically written and I thought her idea towards the very end of the book (no spoilers!) was truly ...more
We meet three women in Erin Green's new book - Nina, who works at Christmas Tree Farm full time and is struggling with the happy fun-filled festive season after what happened last year; Holly, a sixteen year old with a large family at home and a bunch of bullying mean girls to cope with at school; and finally, Angie, for whom the single life isn't quite as she imagined it and wants ...more
On the whole, it was an enjoyable book.

They all interwea ...more

Wonderful story. Great characters.
Nina and I both share the loss. There was some sad reading for me. You truly never get over the death of the first man who loved you unconditionally. Dad's are an amazing gift from God.
There was an enormous amount of characters. I wasn't sure in the beginning of reading this book if I was going to be able to commit to the story. And, somewhere, early in the novel, she captured me!
Thank you Erin Green ...more
