Christmas For One

Christmas For One By Mollie Mathews

Book #1 in my new romantic comedy series is out now. Lose yourself in this feel-great romance with the all-important happily-ever-after!

Set in New York in December 2005 (before the world went mad), Christmas For One will ease your worries and have you laughing out loud as 44-year-old Ruby Evans navigates the perilous task of dating again in the search for lasting love after being dumped.

Will Ruby find love this Christmas?

44-year-old Ruby Evans doesn’t want to be a ‘leftover girl’ —especially at Christmas. But finding a ‘forever’ man is proving impossible.

A single mum after 20 years of marriage, her husband is the only man she has ever slept with. But the one bit of security she always thought she’d hold onto for the rest of her life is brutally ripped from her.

Living the worst cliche she is is humiliatingly and cruelly ex-ed when her husband trades her for a younger model. Chanel Zest, a long-time friend and unconventional, X-rated life coach, comes to her rescue. Together, they embark on a quest to reclaim and rebuild Ruby’s shattered life and find love again.

But, once in a pink moon, Ruby has to play dirty…

But then, a chance meeting with a stranger threatens to unravel all her secrets. Will Ruby be exposed or finally get everything she wished for? Will she find true love or be alone this Christmas after all?

Full of quirky humour and the promise of a happily ever after. Christmas For One is a warm, festive romance with a few spicy bits.

You’ll love Christmas For One if you love Jojo Moyes and enjoy a romantic comedy.


festive frolicking, seasonal cheer and holiday magic

I was glued to the pages from start to finish with this feel-good story

“I absolutely loved this awesome book. Ruby’s life coach is an interesting character, I loved what she came up with to help Ruby out. Ruby turned it all into her own, and I loved what she did to help herself. This book has some laugh-out-loud moments, I loved every one of them. The characters are likeable and so full of life, even when things seem down, they turn it into their favor. I was glued to the pages from start to finish with this feel-good story.”

funny, laugh out loud, and a delight to read

“My second Mollie Mathews book and definitely not the last ….funny, laugh out loud, and a delight to read …..am looking out for the movie or maybe Netflix series ……felt like a letter from a close girlfriend.”

~ Jo Oxford

a one-of-a-kind full range of emotion book if you have ever gone through a divorce

“This is a one-of-a-kind full range of emotion book that if you have ever gone through a divorce and had a wonderfully supportive but definitely zany friend to get you through it all, you will relate to much of what Ms. Mathews has Ruby experience! There were times I laughed, times I cried, and other times I was cheerleader number one for Ruby to get her mojo on and take back her life! I absolutely loved all the in-her-head comments that Ruby would have whenever Chanel would throw out one of her wacky life-coach do’s and don’ts! Priceless!! A very good book.”

~ Anita Fuhrmann

Mollie is just such a good writer

“I really enjoy Mollie’s style of writing – it’s in the 21st century and relates to every woman who has been trashed by a bloke. The abandonment issues experienced by Max are also so relevant to our current world, so many have been emotionally stunted or abandoned. This is a story that resonates with me and I could not put it down. Mollie is just such a good writer with enormous appeal in her story – an excellent read on a rainy day.”

~ Rae Waterhouse
