The Night Before Christmas Paperback
All Lydia's ever wanted is a perfect Christmas...So when her oldest friends invite her to spend the holidays with them, it seems like a dream come true.
She's been promised log fires, roasted chestnuts, her own weight in mince pies - all in a setting that looks like something out of a Christmas card.
But her winter wonderland is ruined when she finds herself snowed in with her current boyfriend, her old flame and a hunky stranger.
Well, three (wise) men is traditional at this time of year...

Review by moosenoose
This book was ok but certainly nothing special. I think what really let it down were the appalling mistakes made by the author (and by association the publisher and proof readers). This book was filled to the brim with grammatical and spelling errors. At first it was just the odd mistake which I tried to ignore. But then words were missed out and sometimes the incorrect word was used (such as he picked up his back and left the room. Back? You mean bag!) Things did not improve as the story continued, resulting in me having to read sentences more than once to get the gist of what was happening. The worst part was when Jo and Lydia were having a conversation and then the incorrect name was printed so that Jo was talking with herself! If these errors had been picked up and corrected then this would have been an easy read for Christmas. The story was a bit farfetched and unbelievable, (one woman and three interested men, really?)! But then I suppose at Christmas fairy tales aren't always a bad thing. I would have to say if you want to read this book, don’t spend money on it. Get it from the library as the author and publishing house should not be making a profit from this. Harsh, but true.
