An unexpected love story of magical moments, Christmas surprises and life-affirming decisions - Lexie Byrne is back!

And life is wonderful, thank you very much. She has met The One, is still watching Dirty Dancing on repeat, and everything is perfect.

Or is it?

FaceTiming and flying visits aren't quite the happily ever after Lexie pictured. With her best friend Annemarie nagging her that she deserves more than a part-time lover with an ever-present ex-wife in his life, Lexie can't help wondering if life is as wonderful as she's telling herself it is.

Will a surprise trip for Christmas bring the magic back to her relationship? In the city of her dreams, a miracle might just be round the corner . . .

Irish writer and actress Caroline Grace-Cassidy is the author of seven novels. Alongside her husband Kevin, they own Park Pictures, a film and television production company, with whom she has written and directed seven short films. She has been a regular panellist for The Elaine Show on Virgin Media One since 2012. She can often be spotted in dark sunglasses and a cap at the bottle bank – but mostly she is a very proud Mammy to Grace & Maggie Cassidy.


Like so many of us, I fell in love with Lexie Byrne and am thrilled to see her back in action again, except even funnier and more adorable this time around! An absolutely joy of a read with an ending that made me want to stand and cheer. Go Lexie! The perfect Christmas read!Claudia Carroll
