Over the Holidays

About the Author,courtesy of the publisher:

Sandra Harper is the author of the play, Magpie’s Tea Room, which enjoyed a successful run in Los Angeles at The Ventura Court Theatre. She has written a cooking column, “The California Cook” for the newspaper, Skirt. A script reader for Pathe Studios and Springcreek Productions, she also wrote and produced fashion and rock videos for Elvis Costello, Chaka Khan and Vidal Sassoon, amonf others. Ms. Harper recieved her B.A. in Journalism from the University of Southern California and has completed a children’s book, The Witches Club.


OVER THE HOLIDAYS is newest warm-hearted tale from Sandra Harper, author of High Tea. Vanessa Channing, a dutiful wife and mother, goes in search of a simpler, more meaningful holiday. But her good intentions quickly go comically awry. Throw in a chronically irresponsible sister, a wacky mother and a temptingly hot new colleague, and you have the makings of one complicated, hectic, and ultimately incredibly rewarding holiday.




The story is light and the book was a quick read and funny… It’s a contemporary fiction, without any fantasy or historical element. The book cover will catch your eye, it’s adorable…  The characters are somewhat likeable, especially given the holiday season coming up, you can relate to the wackiness to some extent… The author has an ability to write in a very easy manner, which is comforting.   it’s a good chicklit…

I would recommend this book for the holidays as an easy read and to lift up your mood..the book would definitely make you smile, and that’s a good thing..
