Hilarious adventures in suburbia from Amazon UK best-selling author Aimee Horton! "Laugh-out-loud funny!" - Kerry Barrett, author of A Step in Time When Dottie and her husband move to a tiny village, she's excited to make new friends. Especially since she's been cooped up with her two young troublemaking children for what seems like years but has probably only been months? She can't even tell anymore since she's so sleep-deprived. But when the neighbors uncover a scandalous incident, all fingers point to Dottie... Can she clear her name before her reputation is permanently ruined? You'll be laughing right along with gin-drinking amateur sleuth Dottie in this delightfully funny romp! Interview with the Author What was your inspiration to write the Perfect Disaster series? 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! It seems these books could fit into several genres. How would you categorize them? While Dottie is a fictional character, her struggles are real. So I'd say anyone who enjoys parenting humour or chick lit would enjoy these books. Basically, anyone who could use a laugh! What sets Dottie apart, and how is her story different from other chick lit? 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. Perfect Mayhem 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 Perfect Disaster series are of a more traditional style but contain Dottie's unique brand of humour. So this book is part of a series? Each book can stand alone, but like gin & tonic, they go great together! Perfect Mayhem (Book 1) Perfect Mishap (Book 2) Perfect Christmas (Book 3) Perfect Mix-Up (Book 4) If you enjoy fun, light reads with a humourous look at parenting (and drinking gin!), you'll enjoy the Perfect Disaster series. Thanks for reading! Previously published as Mothers Ruined.… (lisätietoja)

I received a copy for an honest review. Unfortunately, this version is the practically the same as Mothers Ruined which I enjoyed immensely. However, reading a story with a different title wasn't fun after the first few pages. ( )

Perfect Mishap: The Perfect Disaster Series, by Aimee Horton opens with Dottie Harris driving herself, along with her two young children, to the hospital to have her baby. She doesn't have money with her to pay for parking, she gets stuck in a revolving door and her husband is out of town. And, this is just beginning of what is to come. This absolutely delightful book follows Dottie as she tries to settle into her life in her new home with her new baby. Finding it difficult to make friends with her neighbors, an unexpected feature of her baby monitor provides her with valuable information that might help her. Eventually, she is included in the inner circle, but is it worth it? The book is written with wit, humor and candor. It's easy and fun to read. Highly recommended.

I received a complimentary copy of this book through LibraryThing and the opinions expressed in this review are my own. ( )

Dottie is back! As Dottie is trying to adapt to life in a new house ( with an ugly bathroom), with new neighbors (who seem to hate her), and a surprise baby boy ( ultrasound was way off, now what to do with all the pink stuff?), she discovers that she can hear the neighbors lives (ex. affairs) through the baby monitor. Perfect Mishap is another charming novel by Amiee Horton. ( )
