How To Stuff Up Christmas By Rosie Blake

How to Stuff up Christmas by Rosie Blake

Last Christmas Eve was the happiest girl in the world, her gorgeous boyfriend Liam had just proposed and she was living on cloud nine. Now, Christmas is rolling around again and Eve is dreading having to spend Christmas single, after discovering that Liam has cheated on her. Trying her best to be on her own for Christmas, and not have reminders of the events of the previous year, Eve takes herself and her dog Marmite, and moves into a houseboat and takes pottery lessons. While she is on this break, she runs into the towns hunky vet, Greg, and together they embark on a quest to make Eve a Culinary Queen. But then Greg starts to disappear regularly and eve’s best friend, Daisy, knows more than she is letting on. Eve has to try to get her life back on track and put Liam’s actions behind her.

How to Stuff up Christmas has all the ingredients for the perfect Christmas book. It’s funny and light-hearted and is perfect for getting you in the festive mood. The level of humour in this book is brilliant and there is a laugh on every page. From the word go, I was giggling quietly, and sometimes not so quietly to myself.

Throughout the book, we see the same events from the point of views of both Eve and Greg. I liked this and I think it is a nice touch. Although when I put it down for a few hours and picked it up again a few hours later, I had a sense of déjà vu, when I picked up on an event from the second point of view. Every single character in this book were likeable and Eve’s mother never failed but to make me laugh out loud.

How to Stuff Up Christmas is a witty and heart-warming story. Funny from the very first sentence. This is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud and will definitely get you in the mood for Christmas. After reading How To Get A (Love) Life, I expected great things from this novel and I was not disappointed.
