Itâs not often that two writers get together as one to write but the novels by Annie Sanders are just that. They are enormously witty, touching and well-written too. The bookâs reflect, and this one is no exception, the busy lives that women lead, juggling home and work and friendships. Itâs the perfect novel to curl up with during the festive season and one that will take you through all manner of emotions and out the other side. Highly recommended.

If you like Annie Sanders you might also like to read books by Mavis Cheek, Carole Matthews and Carmen Reid.

Synopsis

The Xmas Factor by Annie Sanders

Meet two women with two totally different approaches to the festive season.

First there's Beth - it's only September and already she has performance anxiety. Not surprising when she has agreed to lay on the annual Christmas Eve village bash - the piece de resistance of her husband's former wife - not to mention having to host Christmas for his difficult offspring. New to this frenzied build-up to the festivities, Beth begins to lose sight of what it all means. To her the Christmas lights are looking more like the headlamps of an oncoming train.

Then there's Carol, glamorous magazine editor, who put her aspirational Christmas issue to bed sometime in July and is so involved in finding a scoop to save her ailing magazine that she fails to notice the impending festive rush. Panicked and wracked with guilt, she determines to make it a picture perfect time for her little boy and, opting for convenience, books a lovely-sounding cottage in a quaint village.

But even the best laid plans have a habit of unravelling - and no plan at all is a recipe for disaster. So when these two Christmasses collide, it looks like it's going to be anything but goodwill toward men…
