A hilarious Christmas tale from Amazon UK bestselling author Aimee Horton! "Cooking for nineteen people will be a cinch!" Ever-optimistic Dottie Harris is preparing for the biggest and best Christmas celebration ever, and nothing-not even unexpected guests or running out of gin-will get her down. But as always, things don't run smoothly for Dottie, and it's not long before her two energetic children, hapless husband and a nasty stomach bug wreak havoc on her carefully planned spreadsheets. Can Dottie throw the perfect family Christmas (without so much as a swig of gin to help her through) or will preparing for the festivities get the best of her? One thing's for sure: This will be a Christmas to remember! A humorous Christmas novella... If you're looking for a funny read for the Christmas season, or want to get in the Christmas spirit, the latest installment in the Dottie Harris Survival Series is for you! Or spread some Christmas cheer and give it as a Christmas gift! Interview with the Author Q. What was your inspiration to write the Survival series? A. Mainly my friends and family! I'd bump into people and they'd comment on how my Facebook updates made them smile after a bad day with the kids. One day, while I was working on another book, I needed a bit of light relief and decided that a book in the style of social networking might be a good way of getting to know a character, both for me and people who don't have as much time to read as they'd like. Dottie turned into somebody people wanted to read more of, and the ideas of the predicaments she could get into kept coming thick and fast-especially with my own two monkeys providing material! Q. It seems these books could fit into several genres. How would you categorize them? A. While Dottie is a fictional character, her struggles are real. So I'd say anyone who enjoys parenting humor or parenting books in general will enjoy the Survival series. And anyone looking for parenting support to get through the baby blues and could use a laugh will enjoy these books! Also, those who enjoy funny chick lit, general humor, or women's fiction. Q. What sets Dottie apart, and how is her story different from all the other funny chick lit books out there? A. I think, in fact, part of what attracts people to this series is that Dottie's struggles AREN'T different from everyone else's. However, the way she tells them IS different. Survival of the Ginnest is comprised entirely of fictional social media updates that are about as honest as you can get. Dottie shares everything, even some of her not-so-fine parenting moments. The other books in the series, Survival of the Christmas Spirit and Mothers Ruined, are traditional novels but contain Dottie's unique brand of humour. Q. What order should I read the books in? A. Each book in the Survival series can stand alone, but like gin and tonic, they go great together! I would recommend the following order: - Survival of the Ginnest - Mothers Ruined - Survival of the Christmas Spirit - Lush in Translation If you enjoy fun, light reads with a humorous look at parenting (and drinking gin!), you'll enjoy the Survival series.

Survival of the Christmas Spirit
She's hosting the family Christmas dinner at her house. She has the tables all set even the ones for the kids.
Her mom calls and there will be others now. She hurries out Christmas eve to get more food. In the rain she can't find any more turkey.
It's laughable as her husband is so calm. So many things happen to dampen her spirit. It really can't get much worse but all comes to a climax at the dinner table when it's revealed...
Sometimes it's just the simple things that make the world go around-don't over think it.
Samples of the author's other works are included. ( )
