One stressed mum. Can she pull off the perfect family Christmas? It’s the most wonderful time of the year… Like every mum, Tara wants a perfect Christmas for her family – but no-one else is lifting a finger and she’s losing her elf-ing mind. From a vaping teen, explosive potty training and a disastrous Nativity, to a distracted husband acting very out of character, the final straw is Tara’s glamorous, feckless mother moving herself back in for the holidays. Can Tara pull off the holly jolly Christmas of her dreams?

Will she deck the halls and not her family? Or is this a Christmas catastrophe waiting to happen… Hilarious, heartwarming and festive as f*ck – the new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Mammy Banter: The Secret Life of an Uncool Mum. Mammy Banter was a Sunday Times #4 hardback fiction bestseller on 5 March 2022.
