It’s all relatives…
It’s only December 1, and Vanessa Clayton has been dreading Christmas since she spotted tinseled trees at her local mall in September. Thankfully, she and her husband, JT, can’t afford to drag their twin boys across the country to New England for the annual celebration at her stuffy sister-in-law Patience’s home. Not that Vanessa has prepared a proper Christmas for her family in years, and she has less time than ever since she agreed to consult on the script of a local play. Her older sister, Thea, is no help — she’d rather make art and flirt with surfers than babysit her nine-year-old nephews. Then Patience drops a holiday stress bomb: Her family will come to California instead.
Praise for Over the Holidays:
“I found Over the Holidays to be a fun read, as light and fluffy as cotton candy with a peppermint twist. If you enjoy chick lit, if you have strong feelings about the holidays or just want some light, entertaining reading, you simply can’t go wrong with Over the Holidays.” Psychotic State Book Review
“Sandra Harper’s holiday novel is a nice way to spend an afternoon relaxing. I would recommend this as a holiday read as well as a book for anyone who enjoys Women’s Fiction with strong, well-developed characters and a story with some depth to it.” On My Bookshelf
“This is a quick fun holiday read.” Chicklit Club
What do you get when you cross English Breakfast with Let’s Do Lunch?
Magpie’s Tearoom is a cozy haven in bustling L.A. — a place for luncheons, baby showers, or simply hanging out. Its owner, British expat Margaret Moore, relishes tradition…but between a frustrated chef preoccupied with her neglectful producer girlfriend and the tearoom’s waitstaff — a talented but desperate TV star who hasn’t acted since Detective Buck Love went off the air, and a twenty-something ingénue who’ll do anything to get the part — her grandmother’s scones begin to feel irrelevant. When the critic from Tea Talk announces she is crossing the pond to visit, Margaret attempts to marshal her staff. But, being of the thespian variety, they all want to be doing something else. Yet despite the high personal drama at hand, the customers still demand their perfectly steeped tea and cucumber sandwiches…
As Margaret battles pilot season and produce-coordinator malfunctions,
she begins to lose her will to live…in L.A.
