Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Excellent, an in-depth family story involving many heart-warming, funny and sad incidents along the way. The family is complex, the story fast-paced, the many events interlinked and the characters are amazing. It is the sort of book you really donât want to leave and miss when you have finished. At the centre there is a house that must be saved but then maybe itâs the relationship that must be saved first. I loved it.

Comparison: Elizabeth Noble, Victoria Clayton, Claudia Carroll.
Similar this month: Sarah Harrison, Lissa Evans.

Synopsis

Going Home by Harriet Evans

It's not shaping up to be the cosy family Christmas Lizzy Walter had in mind. Leaving her tiny flat in London - and a whole host of headaches - behind, Lizzy has returned home to the much loved family home, Keeper House, for Christmas. Like millions of others, all she wants is a break, to relax and spend more time with her chaotic but big-hearted family.

But when she arrives, nothing is quite what it seems. Behind the mistletoe and mince pies, family secrets and rivalries lurk - and suddenly the very future of Keeper House looks in jeopardy. And when David, the Love of her Life - or so she thought - makes an unexpected reappearance, Lizzy is thrown into even greater turmoil.

As winter slowly turns to spring, Lizzy realises she has to take charge for once: of her family, her life and her heart. And by the time summer finally arrives, she thinks everything might be sorted out; and that she might be falling in love again. But she's wrong. As the Walters come together one last time for a wedding in the garden of Keeper House, the stakes have never been higher.

Can Lizzy save the family home - and the family - or will it be too late?
