The Review: This book is billed as a prequella to the hit comedy Coco Pinchard series and it was my first encounter with the character. I can say with certainty I’ll be encountering her again!
It’s a love-story-cum-farce set at Christmas but, unlike in some farces, I really warmed to these characters. They are well-drawn and very funny indeed. As events steam towards the suitably chaotic conclusion, I revelled in spending time with Coco and Daniel and their families, who meet to great comic effect. Hugely enjoyable and very Christmassy too!
Oh, and a turkey almost stole the show and my heart!
The Verdict: As warmly enjoyable as a mug of coco(a).
