Product description


"Laugh-out-loud funny!"
- Kerry Barrett, author of A Step in Time

"Sharp, hysterically funny, touching and real, Aimee Horton's writing will have you crying with laughter and checking to make sure your life isn't being secretly recorded. I love Dottie and her all-too-real escapades."
- Rachael Lucas, author of Coming Up Roses

"A light and entertaining story."
- Chick Lit Central

"This is one of the funniest chick lit books I have read in a long time! I enjoyed every single second of it and, frankly, did not want it to end. Everything about it is light-hearted, breezy, and downright hilarious! I found myself laughing out loud almost the whole way through. This is a hilarious take on motherhood and I highly recommend it to all readers who love a good laugh, and an amazing chick lit book. I honestly loved this one to pieces and can't say enough good things about it. So take my word for it and pick up this 5 star read!"
- Pretty Little Book Reviews

"I fell in love with Dottie from page one and rooted for her throughout this delightful, funny, honest book that will appeal to any woman who's been a mother, a friend, or simply the new girl in town."
- Julie C. Gardner, author of Letters for Scarlet

About the Author

Aimee is from Lincoln, England, where she enjoys drinking gin and spending time with her family (and she won't tell you which of those she prefers doing). As a child, one of her favourite parts of the summer holidays was to devour all the books in a little book shop in Devon. She continued reading at lightning speed right up until having children. She now reads with eyes propped open by match sticks.

Firstly i just want to say how much i have enjoyed The Survival series. This book was my favourite by far but it can also aswell as the others be read as a standalone.
Here we are back with Dottie (Dottie by name and Dottie by nature as she claims) who just moved into a new neighbourhood with her husband and 3 children, Mabel, Arthur and George. The story opens as Dottie makes her way to hospital as she is in labour and husband Henry is nowhere to be seen. This had me laughing out loud especially when she gets a ticket on exiting the car and then proceeds to dump the younger 2 children on the ticket man. As Dottie settles into her new house and neighbourhood, she trys to befriend the neighbours Tina, Izzy and Penny. She finds out all is not as it seems, discovering she can pick up her neighbours conversations on the baby monitor.. With the help of best friend Jane, Dottie trys to find ways to help her neighbours without giving away how she knows what is going on. Learning some shocks along the way, Dottie must out one of them and bring her down a peg or two.
Aimee Horton is a great storyteller and she always makes her stories just flow. I always find i just know its an Aimee book im reading. Sometimes i can get a little lost in books or not quiet get what is going on but i never find any trouble settling down with one of hers. I love Dottie and i feel her character just shines through and as i get lost in the story, i feel i am living life with her. Aimee focuses from an honest account and true to life storyline. No doubt some parts reflect her real everyday life. I love the references to G&T although ive never tryed it, i really want to now. And thanks to Aimee i have a new name for McDonalds - FatDonalds.

Is there a Dottie Harris fanclub? Because I really want to join it! Mothers Ruined is the latest (standalone) instalment of Dottie Harris’ car-crash life of parenting, excessive gin drinking and crazy, bitchy neighbours. Let me tell you that it is a brilliant read. Relentlessly funny, honest and relatable, there was a not a moment I didn’t enjoy or didn’t find myself laughing or shouting at the characters. Shortly after Dottie and her husband Henry move into their new home, Dottie gives birth, only to a baby boy and not the girl they were expecting. Adjusting to a life now with three kids and new, not entirely welcoming, neighbours is not as easy as Dottie would hope and she soon becomes lonely. But then one day she discovers how she can use her baby monitor to overhear her neighbours (and not just their conversations) – could she use it to her own gain?

I found it really endearing how a big aspect to this book is about Dottie and how she is lonely and yet as the reader, all I wanted to do was befriend her! I love Dottie and how forthright she is, how she doesn’t hide or shy away from talking about every little aspect of parenthood, not just the rare moments where they’re asleep, settled and no trouble at all. But at the same time, as she jokes and moans about her kids, you can tell that really she is so suited to being a mum. Even though I’m not a mother, I still found myself nodding in agreement with most of the things she said, not to mention giggling away at every page.

Once Dottie eavesdrops on her neighbours for the first time, she’s addicted. She just can’t stop, even though at times it feels like she’s torturing herself and stumbling upon things she really doesn’t want to hear.

had been stored (safely) in my Kindle library for a couple of months and I can tell you I could not wait to dive into it. Aimee Horton had received so many glowing reviews and positive feedbacks for this book in the Survival series so I had the previous weekend earmarked for reading Mother's ruined and I must say that it had been lot of fun to close the door of my room, get comfy and be a part of this fictional family for a couple of days.

In my eyes, Dottie Harris is a hero, looking after three young children, moving house, redecorating and trying to fit in with her new neighbours is a lot to juggle. Dottie is witty, funny, down-to-earth woman/ mother/ friend and I bonded with her straight away. She was like another member of my mothers group, catching up for a cup of well deserving coffee and a spot of gossip! When I finished his book, I realise that will miss Dottie as I found myself on more than one occasion agreeing with her actions and thinking along the same lines as her.

I was so fond of Dottie's family! Henry, Dottie's husband, is funny, supporting and understanding of the demands of his fast growing family. When it comes to children, they give this book a nice boost with plenty of hilarious and scarily relatable moments. The scenes involving Dottie's three children Arthur, Mabel and George, made me chuckle away with their smart ways and flippant comments. It just shows that children can not keep any secrets and bribing will most likely backfire on you!

I so understood when Dottie and her family moved house and Dottie found herself feeling lonely and in need to make new friendships and that is when she meets three women living on the same street as her. Tina, Penny and Izzy.
