Laughing Through the Snow by Vicki Lesage
Get into the festive spirit with these five funny books, all centered on the holiday season, curated by bestselling author Vicki Lesage.
If I had to decide my favorite part of the holiday season, it’d probably be all the hilarious antics my family gets up to. That, or the egg nog. Between a charity book auction (“Tawdry romance, going once, going twice, SOLD to Grandma!”) and kooky SkyMall gifts (electric spider zapper, anyone?) my family has a rich history of laughable Christmases.
I bet your family does too! Something in our blood goes haywire around the holidays and otherwise normal people start doing funny, this-will-make-for-a-good-story-later sorts of things.
If that’s your style, you’ll love these humorous holiday books:
This lively Christmas novella is part of the Survival Series, where ever-tired mom Dottie Harris has one adventure after another. Often ending in chaos. This time, Dottie has to cook Christmas dinner for an unexpected 19 guests, and the worst part is she doesn’t have her trusty gin and tonic to help her through!
This book is actually four Christmas novellas wrapped up into one pretty package. Talli Roland is one of my new favorite chick lit writers, and this collection of stories is no exception. Each one will get you in the holiday spirit as you follow the heroine on her calamitous but alls-well-that-ends-well holiday adventures.
The always-funny Samantha Tonge doesn’t disappoint in this Christmas story about newly single and newly looking-for-a-home Kimmy. Cupcakes, celebrities, and Christmas make for a delightful trio that will have you laughing–and sympathizing–with sweet Kimmy.
Another collection of holiday novellas, this 3-story book, each with a different heroine, all have the common theme of being light, fun, and funny.
Did I pique your interest about my family’s charity book auction? Get the full story–and 24 more–in my holiday memoir. Plus, each story is paired with a tasty cocktail recipe to get you in a festive mood.
So cozy up around the fire and enjoy these humorous holiday books. And don’t forget the egg nog!
