About This Book

Claire and Matt, no longer together, decide their daughter, Scarlett, should have a "normal" family Christmas. They can't agree on whose idea it was to go to the Happy Forest holiday park, or to bring their new partners. But someone did -- and it's too late to pull the plug. Claire brings her new boyfriend, Patrick (never Pat), a seemingly sensible Ironman in Waiting. Matt brings the new love of his life, Alex, funny, smart, and extremely patient. Scarlett, who is seven, brings her imaginary friend Posey, a giant rabbit. And before you know it, their holiday is a powder keg that ends where this novel begins -- with a tearful, frightened call to the police. What happened? They said they'd all be adults about this. . . .
