Publisher's Summary

Magic can happen in every family....

At the Valley View Motel in South Australia's picturesque Clare Valley, 84-year-old Lola Quinlan is up to her usual mischief. She's sent her family away for Christmas and invited a number of mystery guests to come and stay. But who are all these people, and why aren't they spending the festive season with their own loved ones? As the big day draws closer and Lola's personal family dramas threaten to unravel her plans, she discovers that at a special time of year, magic can happen in every family - especially your own.

From the bestselling author of At Home with the Templetons, here comes a funny, sad, and moving novel about memories and moments and the very meaning of life.

A1

Great storyline, hard to put down. Listened to this perfect narration well into the wee small hours. Love the personification of Lola's Irish accent.

Not my favorite

The performance was amazing! But the book was not my favorite. It took me a lot longer to get through this one than any others of hers.
