But when she finds out that their split was all a misunderstanding it's time for her to make a choice . . .Miranda finds a mobile phone and begins texting a stranger pretending to be someone else. Exciting? Yes. Moral? Possibly not. But what if this the life she is supposed to lead?Chrissie is frantically trying to finish the Christmas shopping, and she knows that she will get it wrong, however hard she tries. Her husband and his viper-tonged mother are just never satisfied. Chrissie is fed up, and maybe this Christmas is the time to take control . . .In her first collection of short stories, number one bestselling author Jojo Moyes explores real life with humour and heart.
