At thirty, Claudia’s life is stale and the romance with long-term boyfriend, Seth, has disappeared. Determined to inject some festive spark back into their love life, Claudia and Seth go on their first date in a very long time. But when the night ends in disaster, Claudia suddenly finds herself facing life – and Christmas – alone.
Life alone is exciting, scary and full of soon-forgotten exercise regimes and ill-advised attempts at crafting sexy underwear. It’s also filling up with dates, surprisingly. With best friends Penny and Nick at her side, a surplus of festive markets, mulled wine and Christmas tunes, Claudia attempts to face all this change with gusto. One thing’s for certain: this year, Christmas is going to be very different . . .
This is the story of Claudia and her twelve dates of Christmas. Hilarious, uplifting and romantic, it’s a story about losing love, finding love, and discovering what’s been there all along. Expect Christmas sparkle, butterflies-in-your-stomach romance and a lot of very funny moments in The Twelve Dates of Christmas.
Lisa Dickenson is the queen of comedic dialogue. No other author has made me laugh out loud like this.
Such a festive, happy, hilarious rom-com. Slightly reminiscent of Bridget Jones.
You may ask, but why, Melisa, are you reading a Christmas book in September? My answer is this: I am sick of the heat, I’m ready for the holiday season and I wanted to laugh…and Lisa Dickenson is a sure thing when it comes to laughter! Can’t wait for her latest Christmas book coming out next month. Still keeping my fingers and toes crossed for an ARC. I recommend if you’re looking for a light, silly holiday read.
