Summary

It's 1985, and 18-year-old Coco Pinchard is home in London for Christmas after her first term at Aberystwyth University.

She has started to write, and has fallen hopelessly in love with Daniel Pinchard, a devilishly handsome musician from the wrong side of the river. But Coco's overbearing mother has other plans and resumes her campaign for Coco to meet and marry the 'right sort of man', preferably Kenneth, son of her best friends Adrian and Yvonne Rosebury, who will be joining them for Christmas.

As snow falls softly over the city, and Coco tries to juggle a series of hilarious events, the stage is set for a Christmas lunch like no other.

A Very Coco Christmas is a delicious, stand-alone prequel short story to Robert Bryndza's smash-hit Coco Pinchard series, with a glorious cast of characters including Daniel's mother Ethel, sister Meryl - and a turkey called Jean Paul Belmondo....

Happy coco-istmas

Once again another fantastic read from Robert Bryndza. As usual Jan Cramer’s narrative is perfect, bringing the characters alive, entertaining the listener with the Coco’s introduction to Daniels family and John Paul Belmondo. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and audiobook. Highly recommend. PS. Yule logs will never be the same. Jeanetteg

Charming

Colorful characters bring a quirky wacky Christmas story to life. It’s a fun listen. A little slapstick

Wonderful

It was a great book leading into what promises to be a wonderful series. The narrator was perfect for this funny, lighthearted novel. The characters were quirky and full of charm and I am starting the next book now. Spend a few bucks on this opener, you won't be sorry you did.

Comical Christmasy Read!

Not at all what I was expecting, having just read The Girl in the Ice. This was surprisingly funny! I recommend it for fans of the Bridget Jones books.
