Nothing is ever simple or straightforward for Declan and Shannon, why should Ellie’s first Christmas be any different.
Spending Christmas with the in-laws (all of them) is not high on Declan’s list of ideal Christmas’ but Shannon can think of nothing better than being close to her family and relishing in the joys of chaos. Throw in a couple of dogs, a temperamental cat, some old ladies, Declan’s own family and even that may be too much for Shannon to handle.
Marie is back on top form for this festive treat that will bring a smile and a sense of seasonal spirit to even the hardest Grinch. Anyone for Polyoga?! How about matching stripy PJ’s? Oh to see next years Christmas card!
A real treat for anyone who loves this series.

My mother wants all her kids and grandkids to spend Christmas Eve at her house and wake up on Christmas morning together.
Sounds reasonable, right?
And it would be.
If it weren’t my mother.
My husband, Declan, is protesting any involvement, though he’s openly intrigued by the idea of claiming his territory by suggesting we have sex in my childhood bed.
And by ‘suggest,’ I mean make a series of really hot offers that make me whimper when I have to say no.
Wait – why am I saying no again?
Mom has turned her house into a Christmas showcase that makes Frankenmuth look like the picked-over clearance rack at Target on December 26. You know those crazy people on Etsy who make felted gnomes out of belly button lint and use … a certain kind of hair… to make thatched roofs on little decorative elf homes?
Those people are saner than my mother.
There is no force of nature stronger — and more emotionally volatile — than a fifty-something grandmother determined to create holiday memories.
Wait a minute. Maybe there is.
