When the Hot Flash friends gather at the spa to trim the Christmas tree, they share steaming mugs of hot chocolate, a few laughs, and a vow to make this holiday one to remember. And it is, but not in the cheerful, ho-ho-ho way they expected. Instead, Christmas brings family conflicts, household accidents, plane delays, and that's just the beginning.
After a hazardous holiday season, the women make resolutions that they intend to keep, in a perfect world. But life, and their friends and relatives, cause complications. Shirley lends financial support to her boyfriend's schemes, which infuriates Alice, whose own son commits an act she's not sure she can accept. Marilyn travels to Scotland and falls in love, but her octogenarian mother needs her at home. And when Polly and Faye find themselves pitted against each other by a younger woman, can they overcome this clash to make a new, entrepreneurial dream come true? Then real disaster strikes, bringing new challenges and surprising revelations.
Just as every month of the year throws new problems at us all, so too does the end of the year give us the chance to reunite and put these problems into their proper perspective. And when the Hot Flash Five get together for the holidays, we should expect nothing less than the unexpected.

Bad accents unfortunately but worth the audible read. Enjoyed all these women very much. Real life drama very believable!
I love these books. As someone in the 50+ age group I can relate. Keeps me entertained during the long drives to,work.
What would have made Hot Flash Holidays better?
I purchased all three in series at same time-wish I would have listened to first one before getting the other two. Very detailed, wordy, kept waiting for something to happen.
What was most disappointing about Nancy Thayer’s story?
moved along so slow-not much of a story
Have you listened to any of Carrington Macduffie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, very goood
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
It made a long road trip go by faster
