It’s very nearly Christmas and, temporarily jobless and homeless, Noelle is back at home with her parents. However, a phone call from her cousin Joe, who runs a house-and-pet-sitting service, saves her from a festive season of Whist, boredom and overindulging. So Noelle is off to France to mind a dozen South American mammals. She arrives amidst a blizzard and quickly discovers that something is definitely wrong at the farm. The animals are there all right, but pretty much nothing else – no power, no furniture and, disastrously, no fee. Add to that a short-tempered intruder in the middle of the night, a premature delivery, long-lost relatives and participation in a living crèche, and this is shaping up to be a noel that Noelle will never forget. Fa-La-Llama-La is a feel-good, festive and fun romcom with a resourceful heroine, a hero who’s a bit of a handful and some right woolly charmers.
This book is perfect to read during Christmas time. It 's a sweet and romantic comedy with likeable llamas.
Noelle is not feeling Christmas spirit, she has lost her job, has left her boyfriend two months before the wedding and now lives with her parents and has lost the best grandmother in the world. Fortunately she receives a job offer in France, south of Paris. But when she comes there is a snowstorm and she finds an empty house with no light and no furniture, and with llamas in an enclosure. She tries somehow to spend the night there but is woken up by the new owner, Nick. He has been cheated, the previous owners are gone taking away all the furniture and leaving the llamas. He's very angry. They will try to unite their efforts to solve their problems.
It was a really relaxing and enjoyable read with some really comic moments as when they have to persuade a llama to parade in the Church for the Christmas party. It was great to visit the French countryside covered with snow and discover some of its Christmas traditions.
