One family. A tiny flat in Notting Hill. On the biggest day of the year. What could possibly go wrong?
When my best friend bombarded with texts about this book I thought she’d lost the plot … Barlow this is your life … you need to read this book!
This is the first book I’d read by Jon Rance and OMG …
Ben Canterbury, 29, single, lives in a poky flat in Notting Hill with horny Welshman, Rufus. His life has been one disappointment after another. What makes it worse is that his brother, Jamie, is the complete opposite – a Barrister to Ben’s Barista – with a family and a proper house in Twickenham. In an attempt to compete with his perfect brother, Ben insists he hosts the family Christmas, but it isn’t long before he realises he’s way out of his depth.
Ben’s flat isn’t big enough for everyone (including one very angry dog), the Christmas tree’s from the £1 shop, the decorations are hung with Blu-Tack, and the turkey might not fit in the oven. Ben’s definitely not feeling the Christmas spirit. But when beautiful new neighbour, Mhairi McGregor, appears at his door, Ben’s Christmas worries go out of the window and he begins to wonder if it might not be the worst Christmas in history after all.
Amid all the drama, drinking and carnage of Christmas Day, will Ben find true love or will it be another disappointment to add to the list? A Notting Hill Christmas is a brilliantly funny, feel-good, festive novella perfect for fans of romantic comedies like Love Actually and Notting Hill.
I sat with a huge grin on my face the whole time I was reading this book and laughed out loud on many occasions much to the children’s amusement. The humour was right up my street. It was utterly brilliant, hilariously funny and comedy gold at it’s best. #notjustforchristmas.
