Publisher's Summary

The first rule of Sunday Lunch Club is...don't make any afternoon plans.  

Every few Sundays, Anna and her extended family and friends get together for lunch. They talk, they laugh, they bicker, they eat too much. Sometimes the important stuff is left unsaid, other times it's said in the wrong way.   

Sitting between her ex-husband and her new lover, Anna is coming to terms with an unexpected pregnancy at the age of 40. Also at the table are her ageing grandmother, her promiscuous sister, her flamboyantly gay brother and a memory too terrible to contemplate.  

Until, that is, a letter arrives from the person Anna scarred all those years ago. Can Anna reconcile her painful past with her uncertain future?  

Juliet Ashton weaves a story of love, friendship and community that will move you to laughter and to tears. Think Cold Feet meets David Nicholls, with a dash of the joy of Jill Mansell added for good measure.

I just loved this book

This book kept me going up and down to the Lakes to see my sick mother. It was absolutely brilliant. I completely identified with those characters. I’m so sorry it’s finished!

Brilliant

Not my normal listen but something attracted me to this and I’m so sad it ended. I really cared about the characters as they were so well crafted and I’d definitely recommend this.

Easy, light hearted, predictable

I picked this as a chance to crime novels. It was a lighthearted and easy listen for sure and I wouldn’t say I didn’t enjoy it as I did. However it was very predictable, twee in parts and WAY too many minority groups trying to be covered in one book and by one family!! Narrator was good and did the characters justice though.

Bit boring

Found this a bit of a struggle to listen to and a bit cliche and predictable in places.

charming

A book about family dynamics all compiled in this lovely book.
A light read/listen that will pull you into their open arms.

Very predictable, but unresolved plot lines

Everyone in the book is lovely, their lives are mildly troubling, etc etc. I tuned out of some parts because they were so dull. Only interesting story was that of the siblings' parents, but this plotline wasn't followed particularly.

Sorry not for me
