Summary

A funny, feel-good, festive listen about rediscovering the magic of Christmas - just the thing to curl up with on a cold winter's night.

Every Christmas Lizzie promises herself that things will change. And yet here she is again at the beginning of December, and nothing is different. Her girls have grown up and left home, her husband, Henry, is slumped in front of the TV and she is alone in the kitchen, seeking refuge in the cooking sherry and talking to her Gary Barlow calendar. She’s also been very diverted by handsome new neighbour Marcus, and she knows she shouldn’t be.... 

So when best friend Ann suggests a weekend away in the country, Lizzie jumps at the chance. Will this give Lizzie some much-needed perspective and allow her to mend her marriage? Or will Marcus prove to be too much of a distraction?
