* The first instalment in this wonderfully romantic and festive novel. Perfect for fans of Kirsty Greenwood and Tracy Bloom.
The first part in this very funny six-part digital romantic comedy.
Claudia is a girl in a rut. At 30, her 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 to the Royal Opera House. 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, about finding love, and about discovering what's been there all along. Expect a whole heap of Christmas sparkle, butterflies-in-your-stomach romance and a lot of very funny moments in The Twelve Dates of Christmas.
Filled with sweet romance, clever and hilarious dialogue and a heroine you'd definitely want to root for. A fabulously written Christmas read you wouldn't want to miss. 10/10 - iheart-chicklit.blogspot.co.uk
I bloody loved it! I laughed so hard that people were staring at me! I cried, I got a little hot under the collar . . . and then I laughed some more . . . The biggest, most sparkly, snow-dusted 5/5! - Tishy Lou, tishylou.wordpress.com
A fun read full of wit and comedic moments that will have you chuckling away as you read. Reading about the journey home on the tube had me in stitches - Shaz's Book Blog, shazsbookboudoir.blogspot.co.uk
Fresh and hilarious . . . I can't remember the last time a book made me laugh like this . . . If you buy one Christmas book this year, it has to be this one. You will laugh, you will cry, you will go awwww and then you'll laugh all over again. 5/5 - Holly Martin, hollymartinwriter.wordpress.com
Lisa Dickenson is the pseudonym for Beyonce. OK, FINE, THAT'S NOT TRUE.
Lisa lives by the Devon seaside, stuffing cream teas in the gobs of anyone who comes to visit, and writing stuff down that she hopes is funny. Her first novel was the copyright-infringing Sweet Valley Twins: The Twins Holiday Horror, which she wrote in primary school and gave up on after five pages. Twenty-ish years later Lisa went on to be a *real author* and wrote the Novelicious Debut of the Year, The Twelve Dates of Christmas, and never looked back.
