Sarah Broadhurst's view...

An amusing, light-hearted tale of family entanglements, drama, misunderstandings and such that often make for delightful reads. It certainly does here. Our main protagonist is Thea, recently split from her boyfriend of two years. Both her siblings are married with families but it seems her parents are about to split! So it’s one last Christmas together and a house in Cornwall is rented for the occasion. Naturally much occurs; all good fun.

If you like Judy Astley you might also like to read books by Isla Dewar, Marian Keyes and Katie Fforde.

Synopsis

It Must Have Been the Mistletoe by Judy Astley

A family Christmas in Cornwall for the newly single? Thea's parents have split up but still seem to be together. Both her younger sister and her brother are Smug Marrieds. But Thea is newly single and very much wishes she wasn't. When her mother and father plan a great family Christmas in a big house by the sea, the idea is to make it all great fun and tremendously civilised - not remotely complicated despite the fact that what they will really be celebrating is the final break-up of their marriage and the Moving On to new partners. And the new partners will also be there - and why not? It's what they do in Sweden, apparently, and it all works out fine. But will they move on? And will Thea manage to navigate her way through the forced jollities and family disasters to find some happiness for herself?
