Synopsis

The Three Day Rule by Emlyn Rees, Josie Lloyd

No phone. No electricity. Snowed in with your family. Welcome to one hell of a Christmas. When the Thorne family gather for the annual Christmas festivities - the arguments, jealousies and long-held enmities that make every family Christmas so special - they think they've only got to endure each other for three days, and then they can return to normality. But then the snows come, along with the ninety-mile-an-hour winds and the plunging temperatures, and the Thornes get cut of with only each other for support, or to blame. It promises to be a Christmas like no other ... Get to know the family you're never going to forget.

Reviews

A pacy tale ... which builds to a satisfying climax ... peppered with entertaining observations about petty family rivalries and how they are inflamed by the claustrophobic and alcohol-fuelled nature of the annual Christmas get-together * Daily Express * This duo never disappoints. Like hot chocolate on a freezing night, this is heart-warming but naughty * Cosmopolitan * For anyone holed up over Christmas with even the best-behaved of families, The Three Day Rule offers gentle humour, engaging characters and an undemanding plot * The Times * Funny and touching, with painful echoes of your own family Christmasses * You Magazine * As ever, Lloyd and Rees
writing is seamless and absorbing, perfectly capturing the stifling atmosphere and the conflicting hopes and dreams of each character

* Irish Examiner *
