I’m so excited to bring you Christmas Confessions & Cocktails by Vicki Lesage.
American-turned-Parisian Vicki tells it like it is, from her crazy Christmases growing up in the Midwest to her even crazier holidays in her new home in France. Bizarre gifts, stomach-turning food, and holiday travel disasters are just some of the tales you’ll chuckle at in this installment of the Paris Confessions series.
This Christmas-themed memoir features 25 funny and heartwarming essays, all with a tenuous tie to Christmas, and pairs each with a delicious drink recipe. So grab your martini shaker and get ready for tasty cocktails and hearty laughs this holiday season!
Buy the Book:
This was the first book of Vicki’s that I had read and I loved it. Who doesn’t love funny, fun, Christmasy stories with Cocktail recipes in between!
There are 25 pieces of this book and they range from family Christmas fun to Christmas mishaps, and then she throws in her favorite cocktail recipes. I laughed continuously and read this book in a day. Because they are short stories I can’t give too much away without giving the whole story away but it’s a great Christmas read and really made me feel like I was temporarily a part of Vicki’s Christmas family gatherings.
I gave this book 4 Christmas Stars.
This is one of those books that I think a lot of people have hiding within them but Vicki writes is so great. You feel like you’re there with her in each story and the fact that she invites you to have a drink with each of the drink recipes really feels like you’re friends with her and a part of her life.
I will definitely be checking out the rest of Vicki’s books soon, she’s a new Author for me that I can’t wait to read!
What I Loved:
-Vicki is funny! And even if her story is a Christmas mishap, I laughed with her.
-Great Christmas read, reminding you that we’re all people, without perfection but with love and fun during the Holidays.
-The cocktail recipes!! I love that and I’m sure I’ll try a few soon!
What I didn’t Love:
-That I’d never read any of Vicki’s books before now!
What I thought of the Cover:
-How freaking cute is the cover?! Very fitting and I’d definitely grab it and check it out.
