Home for The Holidays by Ellen Faith

What They Say:

When Lexi and Ryan make the decision to venture home for the Christmas holidays, neither of them can wait to catch up with their families. What the pair don’t anticipate is the series of life changing events their families have been going through while they've been continuing with their American adventure, including a newly nudist father.

As they try to weather the storm, they discover that being back in the UK is creating more questions than answers for them as a couple and their American dream is beginning to fade. Fast.

*This novel can be read as a follow on from The Story of Us

What I Say:

I would like to thank Ellen Faith for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

We catch up with Lexi and Ryan still in San Fransisco preparing to visit the UK for Christmas.

Ellen takes you on a journey as they stay with Rosie and Jason, meet the parents with some unexpected results and look for wedding venues.

This is a really sweet festive story, I couldn't help but fall in love with Ryan a little bit more.  Rosie had me laughing out loud with her attitude.  Ellen takes us to a Christening, a Christmas lunch in a hotel and even a birth, all told in a really great style.  I enjoyed this story and it is great to read about what happens with Lexi and Ryan after they have been together for a while.

Although this is a follow up to The Story of Us, it really can be read as a standalone, personally I'm glad I read The Story of Us first.  I will be keeping an eye out for more books by Ellen as I really love her writing style.

About the author

Ellen lives in the wonderful county of Yorkshire, England where she spends most of her time baking, eating, baking, and eating. Occasionally she does leave the house to go to the cinema or do some food shopping though. After spending years with an overactive imagination, she decided to put all the magic in her head to some good use and put finger to laptop where The Story of Us was born and became her debut novel. She loves to travel, her favourite destinations so far have all been in America, hence the love of all things, and all people, American. The food rocks pretty hard too, she ate until her jeans begged her to stop whilst she was there. True fact. Aside from daydreaming and eating, Ellen is a sucker for a lolcat, penguins and monkeys - she has never claimed to be normal.
