If you love curling up in a comfy chair to a Christmas novel filled with family, positivity and cheer (with an occasional dose of reality), then look no further. The Bensons return in their fourth story, however you don't need to have read the previous novels to be able to fully enjoy this Christmassy treat. The series started with ‘A Proper Family Holiday’ and as the family has grown, all of the members have taken on life. From mischievous seven year olds Lily and Jack through to Granddad Bill who has been overtaken by dementia, the characters sing from the pages. Chrissie Manby, with short simple sentences, sets a vibrant scene, yet she doesn't shy away from the aching torturous pain of dementia. This is another delightful, proper family story, can Chelsea and Adam end up with a proper family wedding at Christmas? ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

A Wedding at Christmas by Chrissie Manby

A warm, wonderful and funny Christmas novel from Chrissie Manby - the ideal treat this festive season. Mince pies and mayhem guaranteed!

What comes to mind when you picture a wedding at Christmas? A gorgeous white dress accessorised with a thick velvet cape... bridesmaids in red velvet too? An arch of Christmas greenery: holly and ivy and boughs of fir. Candles and fairy lights. Snow!

Chelsea Benson has just twelve weeks to organise her perfect winter wedding. Her family and friends pitch in to help, but sisterly squabbling, issues with money and an Ice-Queen mother-in-law soon threaten Chelsea's plans for her big day. And that's without the firework fiasco...

Rescuing Chelsea's dream of a proper family wedding might just take all the magic of Christmas...

About the Author

Chrissie Manby

Chrissie Manby is the author of twenty romantic comedies including A Proper Family Holiday, The Matchbreaker and Seven Sunny Days. She has had several Sunday Times bestsellers and her novel about behaving badly after a break-up, Getting Over Mr Right, was nominated for the 2011 Melissa Nathan Award.

Chrissie was raised in Gloucester, in the west of England, and now lives in London. Contrary to the popular conception of chick-lit writers, she is such a bad home-baker that her own father threatened to put her last creation on www.cakewrecks.com. She is, however, partial to white wine and shoes she can't walk in.
