I can't get enough of this series!!
Jingle Balls is a short novella full of laugh and crazy twists.

I was thrilled to meet these characters again and enjoy their Christmas countdown.
Dora will show you how to plan a "perfect" Holiday time in the Balls style and you can bet it won't a calm and relaxed Christmas.

Favorite Quotes:

This year’s theme is homemade, I’ve ordered lots of homemade looking decorations, bunting, that kind of thing… Businesswomen haven’t time for all that. We buy it so it looks like we’ve made it.

While I accept my skills as a trendsetter, there is no way I am doing a homemade Christmas with thousands of other people. I will not be a sheep. I am a lioness. I’ll have to retreat and consider my position of attack now.

If you want a hilarious Christmas read this is the one for you. I love this crazy family. This is another short story that continues the antics of the Turner family and friends. The writing was really good and the characters spoke to me realistically. Dora, the Mum is such a meddler but it's funny how devious she is about it and the kids reactions to Mum and Dad make me howl. So funny!

The series continues with Dora secretly meddling in everyone's lives, as usual! Ever the meddler, Dora has deci

This has been a great fun series to read and this one was no exception. We follow the Turners and others for Christmas this time.

Dora is hilarious as always with her meddling ways and the other cast members back her up perfectly. The humour is great and down to earth. The characters are totally believable. I think we can all see a little of ourselves in this bunch of nuts lol. I know I do. Does that make me a nut too? Probably ;O)

The writing was excellent and the story flowed along at a good pac

I received an ARC for my honest review.

This book was so funny from the start to the very end. Dora is a very cheeky women and I love it. Christmas is not going the way it normally should but Dora is in the works. Andie does a great job again with the humour of these characters and brings them to life. I strongly suggest you to read this book. I loved it. Of course all the same characters are in this book. There are some new ones. This is a good holiday and humorous read.

The Ball Games Series is just brilliant. Andy is a great author, she uses fun, wit and sarcasm perfectly. This new book is fantastic, I don't know how she does it but each book just gets better and she manages to keep the stories fresh and not repetitive. As with all of the other books this one is a charming, funny, sexy story. I love all the characters but I particularly love Dora ( I find I have a lot in common with her)

I absolutely love this family! Dora the matriarch of the family is up to her usual shenanigans! With Christmas around the corner and Cam having Christmas Dinner. Dora must pull some tricks to have the Christmas she knows everyone wants!

This is another bent over belly laugh story I could not get enough of!

Absolutely hilarious Christmas book from the Balls Series! We follow the characters from each Balls Book on the lead up to Christmas. Dora is an absolute legend, I seriously need a Dora in my life! I have not laughed so much in such a long time. Cannot wait for more from A.M. Long!

I can definitely say that after reading the Ball’s series, Andie has created a fan out of me. This book is hilarious! I couldn’t help but chuckle at the men’s reactions to finding their elves. I really enjoyed this book; I loved all of the points of view from all of the characters. Be prepared for belly laughs, cute scenes and Christmas feels.
I am so desperate for the next book! I need it now! I need to know what happens with the friendships and relationships in the group, also what happens wit

This is a fab christmas story. The Turner's antics at christmas are absolutely hilarious and this book had me laughing out loud at inappropriate times and then gasping going noooo they didn't just do that! All the characters from the previous books are all involved in this and it's so nice to see what they are doing now since their story finished with their book. This book has a slight cliff hanger and sort of leaves you hankering for the next book but I would suggest reading the other books bef ...more

The Turner family is back and it's Christmas time. I love this family. They are super funny. They're the family you would love to hang out with but are thankful they aren't your family. The turner family doesn't disappoint in this one. Ii will have you smiling and laughing while reading. Dora rules Christmas but this year Cam wants to host Christmas at her house. Dora may make it seems like she is ok with it but she's not. Dora isn't going to let stop her Christmas fun, she's just going to chan ...more

I can’t say much about this book really…except that it’s AWESOME!!! If you’ve read the rest of the Balls series then you’re definitely going to enjoy this little festive edition.

We’re back to daily going ons with the Turner family as they decide where they are going to hold Christmas dinner. As with every ‘normal’ family, Christmas dinner is big and Dora, well let’s just say, she isn’t happy with the outcome. So Dora is back

There were two things I didn't like in this fifth book of the Ball Games series. In Chapter One, I felt that Dora's behavior was a bit eccentric and over-the-top, somewhat seeming forced. At least in the rest of the novel, she was back to her normal self. And maybe due to the popularity of the series and possibly rushing to release the book, it had many errors whereas the writing in the previous four books was very good.

This has been the best story so far!

I love how Dora manages to manipulate the holiday, even after her daughter finagles it away from her. With surprise weddings - and surprise babies - Christmas with the Turners is one they'll never forget!

The Turner family is back in another enjoyable book. Dora is disappointed she will not be hosting Christmas this year and now her planned idea for decorations has become the fad of the year. She no longer wants to use them. Dora is so bummed she decides not to do anything related to Christmas. Beth and Leo are starting to have problems in their relationship and changes are occurring in the relationships of other members of the Turner family. This is a nice addition to the series.

Another entertaining journey with the Turner family and all their friends. It's Christmas and that can only mean one thing ; Dora is planning and that can't be good ! But it's great for us as it means fun times and laughs a plenty and a few shocks. Spend Christmas with the Turners ! Great festive fun !

I don't know what to say about this book without repeating what i've said about the previous books in this series.
Dora's just as mischievous as usual.
Tim is his usual self, letting her get on with it.
Yet this time dora's scheming causes some rather funny but also worrying (for certain people) consequences!
Absolutely brilliant!
Loved it!!
