9780099457831: The Three Day Rule

No phone. No electricity. Snowed in with your family. Welcome to one hell of a Christmas.

When the Thorne family gather for the annual Christmas festivities - the arguments, jealousies and long-held enmities that make every family Christmas so special - they think they've only got to endure each other for three days, and then they can return to normality.

But then the snows come, along with the ninety-mile-an-hour winds and the plunging temperatures, and the Thornes get cut of with only each other for support, or to blame. It promises to be a Christmas like no other ...

Get to know the family you're never going to forget.

Review:

"A pacy tale ... which builds to a satisfying climax ... peppered with entertaining observations about petty family rivalries and how they are inflamed by the claustrophobic and alcohol-fuelled nature of the annual Christmas get-together" ( Daily Express)

"This duo never disappoints. Like hot chocolate on a freezing night, this is heart-warming but naughty" ( Cosmopolitan)

"For anyone holed up over Christmas with even the best-behaved of families, The Three Day Rule offers gentle humour, engaging characters and an undemanding plot" ( The Times)

"Funny and touching, with painful echoes of your own family Christmasses" ( You Magazine)

"As ever, Lloyd and Rees' writing is seamless and absorbing, perfectly capturing the stifling atmosphere and the conflicting hopes and dreams of each character" ( Irish Examiner)

Book Description:

The wonderful new bestseller from the authors of We Are Family
