Publisher's Summary

Even the best laid plans have a habit of unravelling - and no plan at all is a recipe for disaster. When two Christmasses collide, it looks like it's going to be anything but goodwill toward men.

Just Brilliant

Where does The Xmas Factor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Xmas Factor is a truly brilliant story 10 out of 10, I loved it from the very start.

What did you like best about this story?

It is so appealing, I totally love the Christmas story with a different spin on it - wonderful story telling.

Have you listened to any of Kim Hicks’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I love Kim Hicks performance, I don't have other stories read by her yet but she is going to be one of my favourite narrators to be sure.

If you could take any character from The Xmas Factor out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Why it would have to be Nick, even though I don't know much about how to play music, he sounds just so gentle, caring and funny.

Any additional comments?

I have listened to this story 4 times so far and it's still only November!!! It's well worth another listen, I live in Australia and it brings "home" to me as I am British. Love it!!!!

Really enjoyed this

Good, lighthearted book while still looking at life and relationship struggles. I will be keeping this one to listen to again next year.

Snatching Victory form the Jaws of Defeat!

A thoroughly engrossing account of the hassle of preparing for Christmas which interweaves the story of two women, Beth and Carol, as they both seek to make Christmas wonderful for those they love. A story full of warmth; mixing poignancy and happiness together into a marvellous climax.

Great read

As a Christmas lover I couldn't resist getting this book when I saw it, and it didn't let me down. The story of how different women's lives entwine, and detailing their struggles to achieve "the perfect Christmas".
