'Riotously funny' - Company
Emily Smith has always loved Christmas.
Growing up, her family didn't have much but they always made their family Christmas special.
Emily's gran had been at the heart of their festive celebrations, and it all started with getting the right Christmas tree.
Now, age thirty, Emily is hosting her own Christmas for the first time.
And she is determined that everything will be just perfect.
Her fiancee Toby Neill, a successful fund manager, has just bought them a house in Surrey.
And he plans to announce their wedding plans to his whole family over Christmas dinner.
But work commitments have taken to Toby to New York, and he won't be back until two days before the big day.
So, as well as overseeing the work on the house, and juggling a full-time PR job, Emily has to sort out Christmas on her own.
Armed with extensive spreadsheets and detailed lists Emily gets to work.
And, of course, as the countdown to Christmas begins, the first on her list is the perfect Christmas tree.
At the local tree farm she meets Will, who shares her passion for the festive season.
He helps her kit out the house, and becomes someone to confide in as she becomes increasingly lonely while Toby is away.
When Toby starts not turning up to their Skype dates, Emily starts to feel more and more isolated.
Can she still manage to create the perfect Christmas?
Will Toby be back in time to share it with her?
And can she find someone who will stop her feeling lonely this Christmas?
Lonely This Christmas was previously published as Love Hurts.
