December Special Feature: On Strike for Christmas by Sheila Robert

For those of you who like your seasonal tales to hold more than a few chuckles, check out On Strike for Christmas, the next book in our month-long spotlight of seasonal books.

A group of small town wives from a knitting club get tired of laboring over elaborate Christmas preparations that their husbands don't appreciate. Their clueless husbands can't have any idea how hard they work. One by one the women of the club decide to go on strike, watching in horror as their husbands try to make Christmas special for their families while the women fight against the urge to interfere.

This is one of the funniest holiday stories I have ever read, which is why it ends up in our favorite tales of the season line up.

You can find my full review of On Strike for Christmas by Sheila Roberts here.

I like fun stories, Cheryl. I'll see if the bookstore has this one.

I met Debbie Macomber at our Spring Fling conference last year. She was a real doll. Very nice and even posed for a picture with me.

Looks like a good book.

This book sounds like every wife and mother's dream. I especially like the fact that Sheila named her leader Joy.

Joy aka Zebee, or is it the other way around?
