Publisher's Summary

Louise Young is a devoted single mother whose only priority is providing for her daughter, Mia. Louise has a good job in a huge international corporation and she's grateful for it. The only problem is her boss who can't keep his hands to himself, but Louise can handle him. What she really doesn't have time for is romance - until she meets the company's rising star, Josh Wallace.

Louise usually says no to evenings out but she's decided to let her hair down tonight. It's the office Christmas party, she has a pretty dress to wear and she's looking forward to some champagne and fun. She's completely unaware that others around her are too busy playing dangerous games to enjoy the party - until she's pulled into those games herself....

Romance is in the air and secrets are about to be uncovered. It's going to be a night to remember at The Christmas Party.

    "Easy listening"

    Having been to many Christmas parties and knowing the shenanigans that go on the story is fun, lively and heart- warming. No thinking, just sit back and enjoy!

    Story
    "Wimpy lead character"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I thought that the story was too drawn out, could have been half the length.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Very predictable


    Which character – as performed by Penelope Rawlins – was your favourite?

    I didn't have a favourite.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    No, it could be squeezed into a 1 hour tv special.
