Christmas is fast approaching at the new Hope Farm. Owner Molly Baker has been convinced to organise an open day to raise some much-needed funds ahead of the New Year, but the nativity tableau is proving challenging. With anti-social sheep, awkward alpacas and a seriously sequined Santa Claus to assemble, Molly is feeling overwhelmed, and in desperate need of some Christmas spirit . . .
Despite the chaos of the farm getting in the way of her event planning, Molly is looking forward to spending the holidays with boyfriend Shelby and his son, Lucas, hopeful that a happy family Christmas is exactly what they need to draw them all together. But while she is busy making plans on the farm, Shelby, it seems, has ideas of his own.
As the nativity draws near, the team are working hard to pull off a spectacular festive fete – and make sure the animals and humans remain on their best behaviour.
Will this Christmas be merry and bright… or is there more than one surprise in store for Molly and Hope Farm?
What a treat, if you haven’t read Happiness for beginners then I suggest you start with that one first as you get to meet all the characters, in this story we return to Hope Farm and find out what Molly the owner has been getting up to. There are real issues that people can relate to, I admire Molly as she puts everyone before herself even her own feelings. It sounds like a wonderful place where kids can really get away from everything and have some time to be themselves. I would love a follow up to this story as I feel as though there should be. There are lots of cheeky animals to meet in this wonderful story.
