A hilarious and honest British mom’s madcap adventures in suburbia, from Amazon UK bestselling author Aimee Horton!
Dottie Harris has a knack for stumbling into chaotic situations, gin & tonic in hand. When Dottie and Henry Harris move to their new house, Dottie’s only desire is to make friends in the neighbourhood. But Dottie, just home from delivering her third child, is struggling to adjust to village life. Recently promoted Henry travels a lot, and the neighbours aren’t very welcoming (although that could be because when Dottie first met them, she had dyed her children green).
So when Dottie accidentally hears her neighbours’ conversations over her baby monitor, she can’t help but use the sneaky information in her quest to build new friendships.
Of course, eavesdropping never ends well, and when Dottie discovers that two of her neighbours are having an affair, she’s horrified. Worse still, the locals are convinced she’s the one who’s doing the cheating. It’s up to Dottie to clear her name and uncover (and expose) the real cheat—in her signature haphazard way!
A humorous blend between chick lit and cozy mystery, this funny novel will have you laughing along with gin-drinking amateur sleuth Dottie!

Bridget Jones’s Diary meets The Nanny Diaries in this Amazon UK Best Seller!
The only thing Dottie Harris loves more than her gin & tonic is her family. Most of the time.
From her hapless-but-well-meaning husband to her two energetic bundles of joy, Dottie certainly has her hands full. And she’s tired. So tired.
With quips like “How do sleeping babies know the minute you sit down?” this modern-day diary will have you laughing—when you’re not crying with empathy, that is!
Dottie tells it like it is: the good, the bad, and the eternal piles of dirty laundry.
If you’re looking for chick lit packed with parenting humor, or simply want to know you’re not the only one having trouble parenting newborns and toddlers, this book about the ups and downs of parenthood is for you! It’s a motherhood manifesto, social media style!

A hilarious Christmas novella from Amazon UK bestselling author Aimee Horton!
“Cooking for nineteen people will be a cinch!”
Ever-optimistic Dottie Harris is preparing for the biggest and best Christmas celebration ever, and nothing—not even unexpected guests or running out of gin—will get her down.
But as always, things don’t run smoothly for Dottie, and it’s not long before her two energetic children, hapless husband and a nasty stomach bug wreak havoc on her carefully planned spreadsheets.
Can Dottie throw the perfect family Christmas (without so much as a swig of gin to help her through) or will preparing for the festivities get the best of her? One thing’s for sure: This will be a Christmas to remember!
A humorous Christmas novella, perfect if you’re looking for a funny read for the Christmas season, or want to get in the Christmas spirit. Or you can spread some Christmas cheer and give it as a Christmas gift!
Previously published as Survival of the Christmas Spirit.
Find out just how British Dottie is…
Dottie Harris is as British as they come, which is exactly what endears her to us. But when her pregnant American cousin comes for a visit, Dottie is a frazzled disaster who can’t seem to overcome the language barrier.
Perfect Mix-Up is a funny look at parenting from both sides of the pond, and the surprising number of confusing language differences that entails.

TWG’s Q & A with Aimee Horton.
TWG – What made you decide to start writing books?
I¹ve always loved writing, and as a child I used to write loads of
stories, then as I got older my confidence dwindled. It was only after I
had my second child that I saw it as an actual possibility again.
TWG – If you weren’t an author, what could you see yourself doing instead?
Ha, I’d be an awful superhero – I¹m far too tired! I genuinely struggle to
think of an alternative, personal shopper maybe?! I love helping my friends
choose clothes to suit them.
TWG – What was your favourite book as a child?
Ooh there were a few, Huff the Hedgehog, Goodnight Moon, The Owl Who was
afraid of the dark were huge favourites. But I think the TOP TOP TOP
books, anything by Enid Blyton, I just LOVE her. OH AND JUDY BLUME!
TWG – What was your inspiration behind your books? Did you find them
difficult to write?
My real life is inspiration for The Perfect Disaster Series. Being a mum
was a lot harder than I realised, and I also realised I was often a lot
more honest about it than other people! I loved writing the books, they
were enjoyable and almost therapeutic. The next few books I¹m writing are
slightly different, and more just ideas I¹ve had from people watching or
reading the news/social media.
TWG – If you could choose any book by another author, that you would become
the author of instead, which one would you choose and why?
Ooohhh! That¹s tricky!! There are so many good books out there right now,
but I think Amanda Jennings IN HER WAKE – it¹s just fabulous, so clever,
emotive, and addictive.
Aimee is from Lincoln, England, where she enjoys drinking gin and spending time with her family (and she won’t tell you which of those she prefers doing). As a child, one of her favourite parts of the summer holidays was to devour all the books in a little book shop in Devon. She continued reading at lightning speed right up until having children. She now reads with eyes propped open by match sticks.
