´My FAVOURITE book of 2016" Amazon Reviewer. A hilarious and heartwarming Christmas comedy from the bestselling author of The List. Perfect for fans of Holly Martin, Kat French and Lindsey Kelk.
Thirty-eight year old Emily has a satisfying job, fab friends and, most importantly, a wonderful flat, exactly 411 miles away from the judgemental, crazy, interfering family she reluctantly sees twice a year. In fact, the only minor stress in her life is her twenty-something neighbour Evan and his penchant for flirting, loud music and even louder sex . . . but he´s nothing she can´t handle.
Emily also has a boyfriend called Robert and it´s going really well. So well, in fact, that this year Emily is hoping to take him home for Christmas to meet her family. Finally she won´t be subject to five days of nosy questions from her parents and pity looks from her younger married siblings.
But when Robert breaks up with her a week before Christmas, Emily is gutted. How on earth is she going to face her family now? Enlisting the help of party boy Evan (in exchange for one month´s rent and the use of her convertible) Emily is determined to take Robert home for Christmas come hell or high water, even if it isn´t the real Robert . . .
