Since this is a sequel to The Alphabet Sisters, the setting is identical. The motel is in the Clare Valley in Australia, an area famous for its wineries and vast extension of vineyards. I also live in a town that is well known for its wine, so after reading this book, I did a little research about the kind of wine it is produced in the Clare Valley.
Christmas is not what I was expecting.
Lola is definitely the star in this family even though she has her own flaws.
I’m glad that the novel is not going to focus on just Lola and her guests. In the following pages we learn more about the lives of Ellen, Carrie, and Bett.

This is another book by Monica McInerney, and it centres around Lola Quinland, the lovely and peculiar grandmother of the Alphabet Sisters.
This beautiful novel takes place in Australia, specifically the Clare Valley.
