Mo Mo Mo, Merry Christmas Maureen

Another funny Christmas short from Jonathan Hill which, at the time of writing, is free. Even better!

Book description -

After Maureen receives a plea from her friend Louisa, she faces a challenge far greater than trying to keep her potted poinsettia alive…

Spend Christmas with Maureen and her friends in this festive comedy novella, new for 2018!

My review -

Dear old Maureen! Apart from eating and drinking, she usually only opens her mouth to change feet. This time, under the baleful influence of a certain red coat, she is uncharacteristically hurtful, shocking even herself. Something’s up and someone bears a grudge. Her friends Louisa and Tim also feature and, as usual with Jonathan Hill, the slapstick is interspersed with thoughtful sections. I particularly liked Tim and Maureen comparing experiences of loneliness. Light and dark, silly and sad, it’s all in here. Cheers, dears!
