A hilarious Christmas novella from Amazon UK best-selling 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 novella to get you in the holiday spirit or give as a Christmas gift! 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 Survival of the Christmas Spirit.… (lisätietoja)

I received a copy for an honest review. This was a very quick read but was very funny. Christmas Day looms and there are unexpected dinner guests along with unexpected mishaps. Dottie attempts to solve these mishaps as they come along so by the end of the story, it works out. A very sweet story. ( )
