With romance, intrigue, humour and a touch of the unexpected, the twists and turns just keep coming as the first ‘season’ of NEIGHBOURS unfolds, culminating in a Christmas party that brings the entire cast together for the first time. PLUS… there are bonus recipes in the back! It’s a Christmas ‘package deal’ from award winning author Tracy Krauss – fiction on the edge without crossing the line –
