Publisher's Summary

When Jenny inherits her estranged grandmother’s cottage in Sherwood Forest, she has nothing to lose - no money, no job, no friends, no family to speak of, and zero self-respect. Things can only get better.... 

Her grumpy but decidedly handsome new neighbour, Mack, has a habit of bestowing unsolicited good deeds on her. And when Jenny is welcomed into a rather unusual book club, life seems to finally be getting more interesting.  

Instead of reading, the members pledge to complete individual challenges before Christmas: from finding new love and learning to bake to completing a daredevil bucket list. Jenny can’t resist joining in, and soon a year of friendship and laughter, tears and regrets unfolds in the most unexpected ways. 

Warm, wise, funny and utterly uplifting. What one thing would you change in your life before Christmas comes around?

Funny and heart-warming

This has got to be my favorite book on Audible yet. The story is sweet, a little predictable, but wonderfully romantic and so very funny. I laughed out loud many times. I cried a lot towards the end. I didn't want it to end and have already purchased more books by the same author.
I also purchased more books from the narrator Helen Keeley and I cannot wait to start listening to them. She gives the story a whole life of its own making it so enjoyable, so funny, so warm and cozy and real.
I give this book 5 stars for its perfect setting, the wonderful small community feel, the relatable and funny storyline, the very lovable characters and the perfect narrator.

Surprise! This really has good characters!

This is worth a listen. Interesting people. A multi plots and some twists and turns. Quite a few laughs and a few emotional tears!
My only complaint- they should have used more readers. Too many characters and many times hard to decipher which was speaking. I thing there are 16 characters. Good enough read to write the characters down to keep them sorted out! Read it away it’s worth the time and effort!

It was really good

I liked it - the narration and descriptions were good. The story was different than what I expected. Not really Christmasy at all, but a nice story about a girl who totally changes her life after inheriting a cottage in a remote village. It was a nice listen and caught my attention; good ups & downs, believable; and some good food descriptions that make you want to get coffee & a pastry or wine and pot of chicken

Funny well written nice romance/friendships

Finally an author who can write about relationships and not insta-love. It was also great to see how the main character developed relationships and new friends, confronting her own insecurities. This is well worth your credit if you enjoy romance, friendship and a genuinely funny main character.

Not a Christmas story

This time of year I tend to eat up Christmas-themed novels and while this is a great bit of escapism as a book, I’m afraid I feel fairly cheated out of a Christmas theme. Extremely tenuous links to the festive period!

every word is too dramatic

after 5 chapters i am giving up for the first ever time. Listening to this is exhausting..every word is a dramatic yell. Its a shame as i think the story is probably good, but the narration is stressful.

Sweet and enjoyable

Really lovable characters that you want to know more about and there are enjoyable breadcrumbs of information dropped along the way. Less about the outcome and all about the journey - fun and warm, a perfect festive listen.

Good story, but not Christmassy

I totally judged the book by the cover and title- chose it because I wanted a Christmas story. I enjoyed the story but it’s really not Christmassy at all- some tenuous links, but certainly not about the festive season.

brilliant

I laughed and cried and laughed again. Both story and narrator was great. one of the best narrators I've heard. The two plot twist was a bit obvious for me but I still enjoyed it. Highly recommend it
