Publisher's Summary

Everyone is home for the holidays, clamoring for all the Christmas cheer only their mother can whip up. They can already smell the chestnuts roasting - or is that Mom’s hair on fire? From a New York Times bestselling author comes a laugh-out-loud short story for any mom who’d rather wreck the halls.

Tyler, Channing, and Sammy Clauster have descended on their childhood home, with significant others and four-year-old twins in tow, for another good old-fashioned Christmas. Overwhelming holiday magic, as always, comes courtesy of their mom, Claire. They know she’s thrilled to cook, wrap gifts, decorate, accommodate, play games, overprepare every Christmas Eve Eve Eve tradition, and still let Dad be known as the Fun One. It’s her thing, right? Maybe the family should have paid closer attention. Because this year, something is a little off-key - and it’s not just the carols.

Not funny. Very insulting to mothers. Skip it!

I had high hopes that this might be a story like last year's excellent Home Shopped Holiday (sweet & funny). Instead I got a wandering, not-funny tale of a family who's all about taking advantage of their mother who loves Christmas and works super hard to make it great for everyone. This is not a single laugh in this painful-to-listen-to "tale" of a family that simply doesn't care about their mom. I plan to get my $1.39 back. It was that bad.

I struggled to continue listening. It was boring with stupid ungrateful adult children as characters.

Good performances, OK story, poor stereotyping

A Christmastime story of horrible grown children who forget to bring their mom to an ice show after she gifts everyone tickets - just one of countless things she's done for them to make the holidays magical. She then goes missing and they just barely bother to look for her, mostly sitting at home talking about it. Then we find out that this mom who's a borderline saint has cracked, and instead of the horrible family getting its comeuppance, they learn almost nothing and the story ends with the explanation that mom just went a little crazy. :-{ It's insulting to moms everywhere who basically do the same thing every holiday season. What would have been funny is an ending where Claire gets the best of all of them! Also, I spent the entire story wondering which character the male narrator represents. There are three children, and he refers to the mother as "Mom," but also refers to all three children in the third person. So who is he?? How could such a central element go unexplained (or overlooked)? And thumbs down to the stereotypical, negative portrayals of the two gay characters.

a bit confusing

liked the premise of the story but I think it was too short to really explain what was happening.

Fun.

Fun presentation of a Christmas tale surrounding a quirky neurotic family through the hectic Christmas season. Great for a listen on the way to my own family home.

Mothers everywhere can identify

OMG! Spot on concept. My only disappointment was that the kids weren’t sufficiently humbled. There should be an Easter follow up story in which the TV host features the mom. I wanted to throttle the kid who nixed the pizza

Hmmmm

Yep that’s the best I can say. Kind of a sweet story, kind of hard to listen too. I don’t love the view of this book. Not bad just not great.

Passive/Aggressive

A not funny at all attempt to teach common sense family values wrapped in X-Mass paper.

Not festive, not funny

I downloaded this book to listen to on a short road trip during the holidays. Being only a 2 hour book that was supposed to be funny, I thought my husband would tolerate it. He did, but I probably won’t ever be able to convince him to listen to an audible book on a road trip again!?! The story was stupid & not funny at all. The male actor reading the book sounded robotic. It was VERY disappointing! I do not recommend.
