One Family Christmas by Bella Osborne **Book Review** @rararesources

Happy hump day!

If you’re looking for a book that will make you laugh, look no further! This was such a fun and realistic look at family Christmas!🎄

One Family Christmas

A big family. A whole lot of secrets. A Christmas to remember…

This year, Lottie is hosting one last big family Christmas at the home she grew up in – just like her Nana would have wanted.

But when her relatives descend on the old manor house, Lottie gets more than she bargained for. Every family has its secrets, but in this family, everybody has one!

So, between cooking a Christmas dinner, keeping tensions at bay and a stray dog out of mischief, she has plenty on her plate and not just misshapen sausage rolls and a frozen turkey. And then her first love shows up – nine years after he walked out of her life.

Can Lottie make their last family Christmas one to remember… for the right reasons?

My Thoughts

A hilarious ho ho ho holiday read. This was such an entertaining and festive story filled with family, humor, and heart. Lottie is determined to have one last big family Christmas after the sudden death of her beloved Nana. Her somewhat dysfunctional family is less than thrilled about this but they all unenthusiasticly oblige. But even before the first family member arrives things start to go sideways. Lottie’s old flame shows up unexpectedly and she has somehow acquired an extra four-legged houseguest. This book made me laugh, smile, and shed a small tear. This family was so messy it was so authentic and real spending time with them. Made my family look somewhat normal. The bulk of the story is told from the perspective of Lottie who has such a big heart and just wants the family to have a great Christmas. We also get a bit of Emily‘s perspective who is new to the family this is her first Christmas with them, was fun seeing it all from an outsider’s perspective. Most Christmas books are all shiny and bright with that big bow on top this book was more like that gift bag you found crammed in the back of the closet. The gift is just as good it’s just a little more Messi and a little more real. If you’re looking for a Christmas read that Will make you laugh so much your belly will shake like a bowl full of jelly, this is the perfect book!
