Romance | Women's Fiction Contemporary

At Christmastime, it seems as though a woman's work is never done. Trimming the tree, mailing the cards, schlepping to the mall, the endless wrapping-bah humbug! So this year, Joy and Laura and the rest of their knitting group decide to go on strike. If their husbands and families want a nice holiday-filled with parties, decorations, and presents-well, they'll just have to do it themselves.

The boycott soon takes on a life of its own when a reporter picks up the story and more women join in. But as Christmas Day approaches, Joy, Laura, and their husbands confront larger issues in their marriages and discover that a little holiday magic is exactly what they need to come together.

Sheila Roberts gives the best gift of all in this funny, heartwarming novel that touches the very core of Christmas spirit.

Re: On Strike for Christmas

Sheila -

I definately won't misss seeing the moveie on the 5th and your receipe sounds delicious. I'm a juvenille diabetic but this sounds like a receipe that everyone will love and I'll definately be making for when family and friends stop over during the holidays! (Somehow I end up doing all the baking as well and then have to wait for feedback on how it tastes!)

I will be making the drink you have listed, it sounds fantastic. I will watch the movie when on the 5th.

Can't wait to see the movie and the drink sounds like fizzy deliciousness!

Love to hear that an author gets to see her book on the "big" screen. It is such fun to imagine how you must feel. A fantastic early Christmas present! The Peppermint Fizz sounds good though I'd have to forgo the schnapps ( I have an alergy!). Can you sub gingerale? Happy Holidays!

Congrats on the Movie! Drink sounds like trouble to me (became a light weight after getting the diabetes), but bet it tastes great!
Happy Holidays!
