If Bridget Jones had two ex-husbands, three children, and invited her entire extended family over for Christmas…

It’s December 23, and Clara Dunphy is running around Oxford Street like a chicken with its head cut off trying to pick up “a few last-minute bits and bobs.” Despite the frenzy, the twice-divorced mother of three loves Christmas and always wants to make it perfect—a challenge even in the best of times but particularly when “family” means an extended network of in-laws, out-laws, ex-stepfathers, and hangers-on totaling sixteen. Is the madness of Christmas really worth it?

Clara is a witty, blackly funny everywoman who will win over anyone who has ever longed to shut out the holidays with “a giant martini…and some olives.”

    " This book had me laughing at the start. Meeting all the characters, and hearing all Clara's thoughts about them was great. I enjoyed the way each chapter focused on a different Christmas season through the years. I loved Clara's take on family and Christmas! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Nancy | 2/17/2014

    " An insightful book which would mainly appeal to women, a fun read all the same, as the main character says and thinks some things which we can all relate to and say, "that's exactly how I feel." "
