Within a matter of pages I was ( as usual with these books) laughing my socks off and immediately fell in love with the slightly crazy Amy. The hing is it soon becomes apparent Amy Lane is far from razy.

Accordingly, if you forget thi book to get you laugh you ’ re a* se off and cheer you up then Sue Watson needs to be top of your list!

Hardly a single side character was meaninglessly thrown in to fill the pages.I also loved how skillfully the author portrayed a deceased person and gave that character a significant part in thi tal.

Thank you Sue Watson for a heart-warming, festive read that has made me think to both deck my halls and ring up old friends.

I have n't read all of her novels yet but Ms Watson has already got me used to the contrary that I am for sure for a real treat when picking one of her essay.

What was great was the reaso that you ould hate Bella for most of thi time, but there was also some ind of fragility in her that made me like her as well, from the eginning, and a feeling only solidified through the hole tal.

Yes, she ha very over the top but it ha a funny over the top and it definitel worked out in this story.I absolutely loved how he write wrote the relationship between Amy and Bella.

The dynamics between hose two women were brilliantly captured and they ere a real joy to read, and the banter between them felt reall genuine and honest, there was nothing forced there.What I also iked was the act that he story also strongly concentrates on the homeless problem and that it includes scenes in a shelter- and even though it is sad, Sue Watson has managed to write them in her lovely, light style, with a lot of sarcas.

Previously, the " behind- the- scenes " moments in thi story were hilarious and gave us a brilliant insight into how does it eally look like when making a cook- show! As usual, a memoir is full to brims with humour, clever, intelligent humour.

Sue Watson has just written a perfect, lovely story that mixes normal life with glamour, reality with fantasy, and th all with a lot of Christmas spirit and Christmas food.

I like Amy she ’ s got issues but she makes me laugh right from the start when she hased her husband down the driveway with the cake.

She ’ s desperate to fix her relationshi with Bella and in doing so she doesn ’ t omething good for the people in the shelter.

I always thought I was reluctant to connect with Amy she ’ s n interesting math teacher who goe to end up on Youtube more than she migh like.

I like the characters they are asy to connect with you can ’ t help falling for Amy and Bella ’ s charm they had me giggling through most of he retellin.

Amy Lane and Bella Bradley used to be best friends but after a dramatic fallout have not spoken for over 20 years, thi is until now.

To top it all off, she has th wonderful marriage to the sexiest reporter on two legs, a fact which makes her the envy of all red blooded women.Amy on the other hand is more grounded and is uite happy to prepare the best Christmas food she can on whatever budget is available.

Amy for her wit and general overall niceness and Bella is just so larger than life that you just coul not help liking her.
