Christmas cosy, relaxing and a total nightmare?

This Christmas be careful for what you wish for…

Driving home for Christmas, Beth has everything she wants. The kids and the house, the career and the husband. So why is it that when the New Year comes, she can’t stop thinking about her old college boyfriend? Her husband Daniel is tasked with bringing a struggling school up to scratch, but when family life catches up to him, can he be a good father and a good teacher at the same time? Beth’s sister Lou has just been dumped…again. Single and childless, she can’t help but be jealous of her sibling’s success. But is the grass really always greener?
It’s a Wonderful Life is a heart-warming novel about the lives that could have been, and what happens when you start to question the choices you made…
I have had this book for some time, but I saved it for near Christmas to relax and read.
A perfect pick-me-up early Christmas reading treat for yourself. Julia Williams is celebrating ten years.  I can see why Julia Williams books have sold half a million copies.

In it’s a Wonderful Life Beth has to deal with her mum planning Christmas in August. Beth seems to have a wonderful life with a lovely husband and two kids and a good career as a picture-book artist. The family loves her. Why can’t she be satisfied? Why does Beth feel that something is missing?
