Meet two women with two totally different approaches to the festive season.

It's only September but with Christmas cards in the shops already, Beth has performance anxiety. Not surprising when she works full time but has agreed to lay on the annual Christmas Eve bash in their quaint village – the piece de resistance of her new husband's late wife – not to mention having to host Christmas for his difficult offspring. To Beth, the Christmas lights are looking more like the headlamps of an oncoming train.

At the ailing lifestyle magazine Carol edits, they were dealing with Christmas back in July. She's also tied up trying to find a scoop to save her job so she can be excused from failing to notice the impending festive rush. Panicked and wracked with guilt, she determines to make it a picture perfect time for her little boy and, opting for convenience, books a lovely–sounding cottage in a quaint village...

Even the best laid plans have a habit of unravelling – and no plan at all is a recipe for disaster – especially when their two Christmasses collide. Or does it have the makings of the best Christmas ever?

Picked this up in a charity shop yesterday to release on as part of "The Christmas in July" Challenge...anyhow as it's been a wet & windy day here on my hols in Scotland (very much like December!)I've spent a very pleasant morning tucked up reading this.

While the plot's nothing new (eg: Beth's character is a second wife trying to compete against the ghost of a saint & of course, there's friction between herself & her spoilt stepdaughter) it's still an entertaining fun feel-good read - just get settled in a comfy chair & enjoy ;o)

Read as part of the 2011 ULTIMATE CHALLENGE (#90)
