Synopsis:

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.

Review:

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.
