A Not Quite Perfect Christmas - Annie Lyons

A Christmas fairy tale in New York?

 

This Christmas, Emma Darcy has decided, is going to be perfect! Not only has she exchanged her glamorous London life to jet out to the even more glitzy New York, but she has her gorgeous boyfriend finally by her side, and her dream job comes with an invite to their super-dazzling Christmas party. Ooooh, what to wear?! To celebrate, this year she’s planning a Christmas like you see in the movies; her tinsel-topped to-do list includes ice-skating outside Rockefeller Center, strolling around a snow-covered Central Park and Christmas (window) shopping at Tiffany. That plan goes slightly out the window with news that her Mum, sister and niece Lily will be visiting her – that’s a lot of Darcy women, even in the Big Apple!

 

 

With family drama and a work disaster to avoid too, this might not quite be the picture-perfect Christmas she’d had in mind.

I'm a bit confused with this one if I'm being totally honest with you. The story doesn't match it's title or blurb. I was expecting a dramatic tale of distraction, family drama and as the title states not quite a perfect Christmas. What I got was a tale of family love. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the book I did, it was charming and made me giggle. It's warm and family oriented which is what Christmas is really isn't it? Family. It just wasn't what it states it is.

I kind of feel cheated.

 

3/5
