After finding out that her fiance cheated on her, Eve decides to take a break from her work and her glamorous life in London to spent a month in a small village on the Isle of Wight to learn pottery. While she tries to get over her heartbreak, she meets the handsome Greg, who teaches her to cook and to enjoy life again. But Greg is hiding something and Eve is not sure she can trust him. This funny and enjoyable story set during Christmas includes recipes that made me wish it was already Christmas. The characters are funny and lovable and Eve’s hilarious and nosy family made me laugh out aloud. How to Stuff Up Christmas is romantic, atmospheric, and entertaining and I really enjoyed reading it.
