CLAIRE Thorne has until Christmas-eve to turn around what may be a complete disaster for her friend.

She never expected to be heading home for Christmas in Bindallarah, the small country town she left behind thirteen years ago and spends every day trying to forget.

But then again she never expected fate to bring Scotty, her oldest friend and first love back into her life. Or for Scotty to tell her that he's about to get married - to a girl he barely knows.

With only two weeks until Scotty's big day on Christmas Eve, Claire's determined to make up for lost time and help plan his wedding. And while she's at it, she can make sure he's not making a life-changing mistake. After all, it's what any good friend would do.

But is two weeks enough time for Claire to find the answers she needs? And will she be brave enough to question her own heart and the choices she's made along the way?

Published by Penguin Random House, Laura Greaves's Two weeks 'Til Christmas is available as an ebook and in bookshops. RRP $32.99
