A Typical Family Christmas (Large type / large print ed)

See all formats and editions

A heartwarming, laugh-out-loud, festive married romance

For once, Kate Peters would like a happy, family Christmas; the kind of Christmas seen on the TV. She wants harmony and happiness, smiling, glowing faces, tables groaning with food, carol singing around the tree. She wants love, kindness, and goodwill to all men, especially in her own house.

What she doesn't want is drama. Absolutely no drama, whatsoever.

But what she gets is three stroppy children, two equally stroppy grandmothers, a husband who can't manage to change a lightbulb, and Pepe the poodle. It's no wonder she feels unappreciated, overworked, and ignored.

At the end of her tinsel-coated tether, and with the only Christmas spirit being in the form of a bottle of raspberry gin, Kate decides to leave them to it and see how they manage without her. A quiet little hotel somewhere near the sea, where she can pretend Christmas doesn't exist, is just the thing she needs.

Isn't it?
