9780099457831: The Three Day Rule

No phone. No electricity. Welcome to one hell of a Christmas. When the Thorne family gather for the festivities–the arguments, jealousies and enmities that make every family Christmas so special – they think they’ll only have to endure each other for three days. But then the snows come, cutting the Thornes off, with only each other for support.

About the Author:

Josie Lloyd's first novel, It Could Be You, was published in 1998.

Emlyn Rees worked as a literary agent while writing his first novel, The Book of Dead Authors. Film rights have been sold for Come Together. Both authors live in London.

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 *
