Despite good intentions, I hardly ever get around to re-reading books but for some reason (like, the quirky humour and wonderful supporting cast) Amara's [b:Holiday Outing|6033472|Holiday Outing |Astrid Amara|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1230084069s/6033472.jpg|6208964] just does it for me and has become an essential holiday season re-read. This book doesn't resonate in quite the same way but her writing is so
good, so effortless and her characters so appealing, I was happy to dive right in and not come up for air until it was done.
Perfect for a wet, wintery Saturday spent on the couch, wedged between two cats.
I'd have to agree with MandyM
that Astrid Amara is
terribly underrated. Give her a try.
