(2018)
A novel by

 
 
Meet the adults.

Claire and Matt are divorced but decide what's best for their daughter, Scarlett, is to have a 'normal' family Christmas. They can't agree on whose idea it was or who said they should bring their new partners. But someone did - and it's too late to pull the plug.

Claire brings her new boyfriend, Patrick, a seemingly eligible Iron-Man-in-Waiting. Matt brings the new love of his life, Alex - funny, smart and extremely patient. Scarlett, their daughter, brings her imaginary friend Posey. He's a rabbit.

Together the five (or six?) of them grit their teeth over Organised Fun activities, drinking a little too much after bedtime and oversharing classified secrets about their pasts, and, before you know it, their holiday is a powder keg that ends - where this story starts - with a tearful, frightened call to the police....

But what happened? They said they'd all be adults about this....
