Product Description

Product Description

“Why the hell did I think cooking for nineteen people would be a good idea?”

It's Christmas and Dottie Harris is planning the biggest and best celebration ever, especially as she's planning to announce the news of her third pregnancy to her family.

But as always, nothing runs smoothly for Dottie, and it's not long before her two gruesome children, hapless husband and a nasty case of morning sickness are playing havoc with 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 her burned pigs in blankets and her sister-in-law throwing up in the loo leave a bad taste in everyone’s mouth?

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas Dottie style! 9 Jan 2014

This short tale from the lovable Dottie and her clan was a perfect little festive treat. Read in one sitting, I thoroughly enjoyed this update come seasonal offering and the warm fuzzy feeling you cannot help but get wrapped up in. Its a realistic Christmas, with the usual chaos and the cheery ending made it even more special!

Would definately recommend this to download and I think it would accompany a little glass of fizz and a mince pie perfectly! (p.s I tried, and it did!)

5.0 out of 5 stars read in one sitting 8 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I am writing this review from my now not so hot bath, after reading the entire book. Again, I love Aimees humour and sarcasm in the middle of a crisis that would probably send me over the edge. another light hearted, easy and enjoyble read. Off to purchase the next installment.

An ironic and funny look at the bitter sweet relationship we have with Christmas!!! I started to read this when I was in the hairdressers and when someone asked me what I was reading I knew I has been smiling and chuckling out loud!!! I was sorry when it ended. I would like to read more.......perhaps a book about family holidays !

5.0 out of 5 stars More Please........... 19 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved Survival of the Ginnest and was thrilled to see another "Survival" appear on Amazon. Really laughed as Dottie crashed through Christmas! As with those who have children will agree, I found myself seeing some of my experiences in there, it is wonderful to know you are not suffering alone and your kids are not the only ones that are not perfect angels all the time. Can't wait to see how Dottie copes with baby number 3.......keep them coming Aimee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 12 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I treated myself to this on boxing day as some light post-Christmas relief, I certainly wasn't disappointed! Brilliantly written from start to finish, I found myself chuckling along throughout the story. I really hope there will be more in the Dottie series, I'd love to know how she copes with baby number 3!!
