PLEASE NOTE : This book is an uncorrected book proof and has a slightly different cover (and title). *********

"After a hectic year, Helen is finally finding her feet just in time for the looming festive season.

Surrounded by family, freinds and the finer things in life, Helen's generous offer to roganise Christmas for her neurotic best friend Leoni soon snowballs into an unmanageable avalanche of tasks when her chaotic boss dumps his seasonal arrangements on her too. And with her sister Julia heading towards a mind-boggling midlife crisis of her own, it looks as though Helen is well and truly stuffed!

And so it begins, the season of good grief to all women ......."

A very easy to read book with much humour scattered throughout the pages. Some very tongue in cheek responses to some cliche situations which make an enjoyable, and very definately adult, read. Helen appears too naive for normality and the sensible managing techniques she employs but retains an almost creditable presence. Some characterisation is very vague considering the interactions with more mainstream characters however it was possible to ignore this and still enjoy the scenarios they were placed in.

I may well retain this for an 'extra' Secret Santa themed book.
