Reviews

  • Breathless, ­colourful, hilarious and honest; the dialogue is sitcom-snappy and the opening scenes in Oxford Street positively Joycean

    Wendy Holden, Daily Mail
  • So kindly and funny and affectionate that you could probably warm your hands on it. Miraculously, this is a feel-good story that manages not to be saccharine. There are a great many good jokes here . . . but concealed amid the fun, like silver coins in a Christmas pudding, is a serious theme. This is a book you could safely give to practically anyone. Snap up plenty of copies to hand around under the tree

  • I loved Comfort and Joy, a hilarious, bawdy yet touching portrait of Christmas over three years

    Jilly Cooper, Guardian Books of the Year
  • Fabulous. Laugh-out-loud funny, moving and as cuddly as Santa Claus, this is perfect for snuggling up with over the Christmas holidays

    Cosmopolitan
  • Touching...it will make you laugh, maybe make you cry and keep you reading past bedtime

    Lauren Laverne, Grazia
  • A wickedly funny, painfully honest look at families, festivities and romantic love

    Marie Claire
  • Tender, tough, schmaltzy, witty and heart-warming all at once. Knight has a great comic touch - there are some wonderfully rude bits and a fantastic rant about the ridiculous expectations piled on 21st-century women to be perfect - and writes with a deceptive lightness. At the heart of this funny, affectionate novel is an acknowledgement that families, like love, come in odd shapes and sizes, and that both matter more than anything

  • Witty enough to make you laugh out loud, but there are moments of real emotion that keep the book from being too light

    Psychologies
  • A superb ear for dialogue...wonderfully comic

    Evening Standard
  • Riotously high in laughs and glamour. I defy a festive grump not to be cheered by it

    Independent Books of the Year
