Synopsis

Home for Christmas by Cally Taylor

Beth Prince has always loved fairytales and now, aged twenty-four, she feels like she's finally on the verge of her own happily ever after. She lives by the seaside, works in the Picturebox - a charming but rundown independent cinema - and has a boyfriend who's so debonair and charming she can't believe her luck! There's just one problem - none of her boyfriends have ever told her they love her and it doesn't look like Aiden's going to say it any time soon. Desperate to hear 'I love you' for the first time Beth takes matters into her own hands - and instantly wishes she hadn't. Just when it seems like her luck can't get any worse, bad news arrives in the devilishly handsome shape of Matt Jones. Matt is the regional director of a multiplex cinema and he's determined to get his hands on the Picturebox by Christmas. Can Beth keep her job, her man and her home or is her romantic-comedy life about to turn into a disaster movie?

Reviews

A chick-lit delight that skips along with energy and humour. * EASY LIVING * A seasonal delight that's unashamedly full of classic rom-com fayre but beneath the gloss Taylor constantly displays her rich storytelling talent. -- Joe Melia * VENUE * If you too are a fan of happy endings - and you have to wait till the very last page for the outcome - then this feel good, humourous and well written novel is for you. * SOUTH WALES ARGUS * I was hooked from the first page to the last -- Chloe Spooner * CHICK LIT CHLOE BLOG * A sparkling story * GLAMOUR *
