Christmas for Beginners

Carole Matthews

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Adult & contemporary romance

Christmas for Beginners is the gloriously festive sequel to readers' favourite and Sunday Times bestselling novel Happiness for Beginners.

The new book from BESTSELLING and BELOVED Carole Matthews.

Christmas is approaching at the new Hope Farm, and Bev has convinced a reluctant Molly to organise an open day to raise some much-needed funds. Their nativity tableau has everything they need: anti-social sheep, alpacas munching the Baby Jesus doll and Lucas's poetry - which he still refuses to share with his dad, Shelby.

Molly fears that the close quarters of the new trailer and the mucky life on the farm are beginning to take their toll on Shelby, as he starts eyeing up some more glamorous acting gigs. His constant sneezing and bright red eyes are hardly ideal for his career and they aren't sure how long their living situation can last.

As tensions mount, Molly feels pulled in too many directions. The animals, the open day, Lucas's love life and Shelby's restlessness are all pushing her to her limit. And that's without the distraction of a shockingly handsome new mayor . . .
