Synopsis

The Twelve Dates of Christmas The Complete Novel by Lisa Dickenson

At thirty, Claudia's 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. 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.

Reviews

'The Twelve Dates of Christmas is a fun, flirty festive read full of Christmas sparkle and romance. As delicious as a box of Christmas chocolates, a real festive feast Jo Thomas, author of The Oyster Catcher Filled with sweet romance, clever and hilarious dialogue and a heroine you'd definitely want to root for.

About the Author

Lisa Dickenson was born in the wrong body. She was definitely meant to be Beyonce. Despite this hardship, she grew up in Devon attempting to write her own, completely copyright-infringing versions of Sweet Valley High, before giving Wales a go for university, and then London a go for the celeb-spotting potential. She's now back in Devon, living beside the seaside with her husband and forcing cream teas down the mouths of anyone who'll visit. She is sadly still not Beyonce. The Twelve Dates of Christmas is Lisa's first novel. Follow her on Twitter for all her book news and Beyonce-related chatter: @LisaWritesStuff.
