Claire and Matt are divorced but decide what's best for their daughter Scarlett is to have a 'normal' family Christmas. They can't agree on whose idea it was, or who said they should bring their new partners. But someone did - and it's too late to pull the plug.

Claire brings her new boyfriend Patrick, a seemingly eligible Iron-Man-in-Waiting. Matt brings the new love of his life Alex, funny, smart, and extremely patient. Scarlett, their daughter, brings her imaginary friend Posey. He's a rabbit.

Together the five (or six?) of them grit their teeth over Organized Fun activities, drinking a little too much after bed-time, oversharing classified secrets about their pasts and, before you know it, their holiday is a powder keg that ends - where this story starts - with a tearful, frightened, call to the police...

But what happened? They said they'd all be adults about this...

If you loved THE BREAK by Marian Keyes or raved about THE ROSIE PROJECT - look no further than THE ADULTS.

I picked up The Adults initially because who in the right mind goes to a lodge with their ex, their young daughter and new partners? It sounds like a recipe for disaster.

So let the chaos begin. The antics in this book made me laugh out loud and I ended up with a couple of stitches. Just how anyone can get themselves in this situation?

Caroline manages to explore the relationships of the group in a brutally honest fashion that managed to be clever, witty and at times honestly embarrassing. After all Christmas is when families comes together whether you love them o hate them.

After all can you really be civilised when your cooped up in a lodge? Well you just have to read  The Adults to find out.
