Jonathan Hill

A Christmas short story from Jonathan Hill shows us Maureen in her usual fix. Self inflicted!

My review - 

This is a delicious little seasonal short story full of laughs. I say delicious – it includes sherry and chocolates! The story is full of sharp little observations. Maureen as usual is out to impress someone and digs herself in ever deeper. We all know someone with some of Maureen’s traits. I just hope nobody knows someone with them all! Even the laughs are thought provoking though. Do you try so hard to impress because you’re insecure? Maureen manages to be both faintly ridiculous and yet laudable for the way she tries. On that thought, I’d say read this and start your Christmas with a laugh!
