Everyone adores Christmas . . .
Especially Lizzy Kingham. But this year, she is feeling unloved and underappreciated by her family. The present-buying, decorating and food shopping have all been left to her. So she wonders . . . what would happen if she ran away and left them to it?
Lizzy heads to her favourite place: a beach hut on the golden sands of Everdene. There she meets an unlikely collection of new friends, all running away from something. But the spirit of Christmas gets under Lizzy’s skin: soon the fairy lights are twinkling and the scent of mulled wine mingles with the sea air.
Back at Pepperpot Cottage, her family are desperate to find her. For Christmas isn’t Christmas without Lizzy. Can they track her down in time and convince her she means the world to them, every day of the year?
Reading a book of Veronica’s is like having a warm comforting hug. I couldn’t wait to get back to the beach hut stories and this one was just as fabulous as the last. The book is broken down into three people’s stories and they are ones that people I think can probably relate too. I love how Lizzy describes the beach hut and what she does for others reminds me of my mum and how much we should cherish the ones we have close. Christmas always brings families together with delicious food. I wanted this book to go on and on.
