The Mackenzies gather for a clan Christmas and New Year's in Scotland. In the chaos of preparations for the celebration--the first of Hart and Eleanor's married life--one of Ian's Ming bowls gets broken, and the family scrambles to save the day. Daniel busily runs a betting ring for everything from the time Eleanor's baby will arrive to whether Mac's former-pugilist valet can win a boxing match to who will be the first of the many guests to be caught under the mistletoe. Ian begins a new obsession, and Beth fears the loss of one of his precious bowls has made him withdraw once more into his private world.
Ok so I have not read a single book in this series, I do have book 1 though..Still it worked perfectly like this :)
I may not know who anyone except Ian is (that is the book I have). But it was still fun to see couples being in love, having babies and worrying about xmas. As Ian's bowl breaks and his wife is scared he will go into himself again, and then the rest of the family worries too.
A nice xmas novella :)
