Aisling Brady is miserable. So is her husband Mossy. The three kids are too. Yet nobody dares say a thing. Instead, the Bradys keep their heads down and grimly look forward to another miserable Christmas in Dublin. What Aisling doesn’t know is that – this year – they will get the most unexpected gift of all. One that will bring joy and heartbreak, hope and a string of sleepless nights. As their world is turned upside down, questions have to be asked. But are the Bradys ready to face the truth about themselves? And what each of them has done?

The Good:

+ The storyline was great. It felt new, and I loved the twists. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed with the ending, but the twist was good.

+ We had a mystery, and the whole story was only revealed towards the end of the book. I like to keep guessing!

+ A Special Delivery did cover some real life problems. Not in as much detail as it could have done, but I thought it was good that they were touched upon.

+ I was hooked. Couldn’t stop reading at some points!

The Bad:

+ I went into this book thinking it would be a nice Christmassy read – I was wrong. It began at Christmas, but that was it! Not the end of the world, but I thought the book sounded like it would be a great start to the Christmas books!
