The Twelve Dates of Christmas

The Twelve Dates of Christmas

*WINNER OF THE NOVELICIOUS DEBUT OF THE YEAR AWARD*

‘A perfect Christmas treat’ Miranda Dickinson


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. Hilarious, uplifting and romantic, it’s a story about losing love, finding love, and discovering what’s been there all along. Expect Christmas sparkle, butterflies-in-your-stomach romance and a lot of very funny moments in The Twelve Dates of Christmas.

Daily Express
I loved The Twelve Dates of Christmas. The book is sprinkled with humour, warmth and, of course, Christmas magic; I could almost smell that gingerbread latte! The characters sparkled - I adored Nick, loved the relationship between Claudia and Penny and had a big soft spot for Claudia's dad! And to top it all, the Christmassy London setting truly made the story come alive for me.

You need to read this romcom! Fun, flirty and funny
Fabulous
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

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
