A festive collection of short stories by the natural heir to Maeve Binchy. Cathy Kelly, the number 1 best-selling author, has created her first collection of heart-warming short stories. Christmas Magic is full of charming and witty tales of life, love and the everyday dilemmas that we all face, all told in Cathy's unique voice.
Can the sisters, Dolores and Genevieve, finally break free from their mother's powerful personality? Can Larissa learn to embrace the endurance test that is the Office Christmas Party or will this year's be a finger buffet too far? Can Alice open her home and her heart to the one visitor that she doesn't want this Christmas? And when mysterious Madame Lucia sets up shop with her crystal ball above a travel agent's, will the staff be convinced that fate really can play a hand?
Relax and unwind in front of a roaring fire and indulge yourself in these, and many other humorous and uplifting tales. Remember that Christmas comes but once a year, so let the magic reel you in....

Praise for Homecoming: "Warm, lyrical, fascinating and comforting...genius!" (Marian Keyes)
"Homecoming is an absolutely fabulous read, a warm, touching, funny and poignant page-turner." (Irish Independent)
"A cracking novel that ticks all the emotional boxes." (Woman & Home)
I usually really like Cathy Kelly stories but found it difficult to enjoy these - the narrator made me feel like she was talking to a child, really irritating!
