Warm, humorous and completely irresistible. All you want for Christmas is right here! Cat Tinsall is ably juggling her busy family life - a 'sandwich generation' woman, she cares for her kids, her mother-in-law, and her baby granddaughter. Her 'Happy Homemaker' TV career is looking rocky - apparently, as a woman over 40, she's in danger of 'fading to grey'! But she's not going down without a fight ...Cat's friend Pippa Holliday is finding life as a single mum a challenge, especially now the family farm is in dire financial straits. And schoolteacher Marianne North, mum of young twins and a teenage stepson, is dismayed to find her husband's demanding ex is back on the scene. As the close-knit village of Hope Christmas pulls together to battle ruthless plans from local developers, it looks like each of these three women needs a miracle. Christmas approaches, bringing with it more than one big surprise, and it appears they might just find one ...If you love The Archers and the novels of Jill Mansell and Erica James this is the perfect book for you.
