Mistletoe and Mayhem by Catherine Ferguson


Book Description

Lola Plumpton can’t believe her luck.

Christmas is coming and her gorgeous boyfriend, Nathan has offered up his swanky apartment to host the Plumpton family’s festive celebrations. It looks set to be a Christmas to remember. And it is – but for all the wrong reasons.

As the 25th December draws closer, Lola unexpectedly finds herself missing some key components:

1. A job (but who needs one of those anyway, when you’ve got the ultimate family Christmas to prepare for?)
2. Money (no job equals no money, it turns out.)
3. A boyfriend (yup, Nathan the hunk has said adios to Lola – and in the *most* embarrassing way possible…)
4. Somewhere to host her fabulous family Christmas (because of course, no Nathan means no des res apartment.)

Lola’s at a loss about what to do. But one way or another, she’s going to make this the happiest Christmas her family’s ever had…

Since October I’ve reviewed numerous Christmas books, but now Christmas is coming at us like an express train, I really wanted to read a few more to add to my blog. Luckily for me Mistletoe and Mayhem popped up for review and after reading the description of it, I just had to read this one, and I’m so glad I did, because it really is one of the best Christmas books I’ve read this year.

Mistletoe and Mayhem Is a delightful story, it mixes humour, friendship, family issues and romance, and in my opinion is the perfect formula for a good read. From the start I really liked Lola she’s down to earth, funny and very likeable. All the characters have real depth, I really felt for Lola’s parents, who had unresolved issues in their relationship, but I was impressed by the sensitive way Catherine deals with them. From Lola’s first meeting with Seb you just know they are meant for each other, they have great rapport and the chemistry between them is tangible, like any good rom com there are plenty of false starts and Mayhem along the way!

From the first few pages I knew I was going to enjoy Mistletoe and Mayhem, the writing is witty and very entertaining and flows effortlessly throughout. This isn’t just a light Christmas offering, it does cover some deep issues and although Catherine doesn’t go into too much detail, what she does cover is done in a sensitive manner, whilst managing to retain the lightness and humour of Mistletoe and Mayhem. I felt many emotions whilst reading this book I laughed, cried and I laughed some more, a sign of a good book in my eyes. I would highly recommend you pick up a copy of Mistletoe and Mayhem its the perfect Christmas read, and a heartwarming tale that will leave you feeling contented.
