Being a big fan of Robert Bryndza s Erika Foster thriller series, I decided to give his lighter writings a go This is a cute fluffy short novella that introduces the reader to Coco Pinchard, the heroine of the author s Coco Pinchard chick lit series I finished this in two sittings today as I ate breakfast and lunch There is nothing deep here, but there are some great laughs My favorite parts were the scenes with Jean Paul Belmondo who is the turkey striving not to become Christmas dinner, and the rather disastrous Christmas dinner itself Coco s boyfriend Daniel s mother Ethel is a great character and I hope there will be of her in the Coco novels She provides some winning LOLs and helps neutralize Coco s mother, who frankly is a real b h Coco s words, not mine, but she s right I saw enough here to pick up the next book in the series I will save it for when I need some levity after a killer thriller or a bad day Recommended for all who would like a quick, light, humorous Christmas read.

This is a short story by the author Robert Bryndza , whom wrote the Erika Foster series that I had read this year, and thoroughly enjoyed A Very Coco Christmas is the introduction to his Coco Pinchard Series A very different read from the Erika Foster booksThis besides being a Christmas themed book, was a bit on the romantic side, which generally is not my venue at all.However it is a funny little book, very well written, and enjoyable Did you know Robert Bryndza of the Erika Foster thriller series also wrote a series of rom coms A Very Coco Christmas is the zany and fun short story prequel to the Coco Pinchard series This is where it all begins for Coco and Daniel Coco is visiting home in London for Christmas after one semester at university She is completely in love with Daniel, a musician and not the sort of boy her mother approves of Coco s mother has her sights set on someone else and invites him and his parents to the Christmas dinner In short, a series of hilarious events ensues involving a named turkey, Daniel s mother and sister, and all the above folks I ve named already This is just the type of quick read one needs over the holidays to let out some laughter and look on the bright side I loved it and am ecstatic to be reading of Coco s stories Thanks to the author and Sarah at Book on the Bright Side Publicity for the complimentary copy All opinions are my own.My reviews can also be found on my blog www.jennifertarheelreader.com A Very Coco Christmas is a prequel in the Coco Pinchard series by British born author, Robert Bryndza Coco Karen to her parents has come home to England for Christmas after her first term at a Welsh University, with a boyfriend in tow Daniel and Coco are in love, but Coco is pretty sure her snobbish mother, who already has the ideal man all picked out for her, won t be pleased Daniel s carol singing stunt at their door confirms this, and hard words ensue A far cry from his Erika Foster series, this short story gives an excellent taste of Bryndza s earlier and much light hearted writing Coco s madcap antics combine with some quirky characters including a turkey called Jean Paul Belmondo to give the reader some almost slapstick romcom There are three full length novels and another Christmas themed short story to be enjoyed in this series Great fun The Christmas holidays can be a crazy time of year, and Robert Bryndza shows just how zany things can get in his short story, A Very Coco Christmas Prequel Short Story Having read only his first two thriller novels, I wasn t sure what to expect, although I was aware that he has also written romantic comedies But what can happen when a college girl from an upper class family brings her boyfriend s lower class family over for Christmas dinner Will it be lovely, or will it spell disaster with a capital D Karen, known to her university friends as Coco, is hopelessly in love with Daniel The trouble is, she is leery of telling her parents about him, since she feels that they are snobbish and judgmental Daniel, on the other hand, is happy to introduce Coco to his mother Ethel, who is one of those what you see is what you get kind of gals I got a big kick out of Ethel The other character I loved was John Paul Belmondo I think I ll just let you read the story to find out about him.This little holiday tale is a fast read and is thoroughly enjoyable I went from start to finish in one sitting with a single cup of tea It brought many smiles and than a few chuckles Now I suspect I will have to read the Coco Pinchard series 5 sparkly stars

Christmas She knows it won t be easy introducing her new boyfriend, Daniel to her uppity and controlling mother Her mom has a certain image of what a proper boyfriend should be, but Coco isn t buying it.When Daniel s family arrives for Christmas lunch at Coco s parents house, it is like Beverly Hillbillies meet The Housewives of a London family The shenanigans had me laughing and trying to picture
