Summary

Diz and Clarissa are back for the holidays!

It’s Christmas Eve in Baltimore, and you know what that means: snow. Lots of it.

Join our dynamic duo as they battle the elements, quirky friends and family, and two marauding dogs in their annual ill-fated attempts to enjoy a quiet Christmas alone.

Originally published in 2014, this Christmas collection features the short stories Nevermore!, A Christmas Tree Grows in Baltimore, and Blended Families.

But wait! There’s more!

In the Bywater Books reissue of Three, you get a (Plus One)! This updated edition of Ann McMan’s romantic comedy classic includes the fourth tale of Diz and Clarissa, ‘Twas the Nightmare Before Christmas.

This trilogy (plus one) is a holiday omnibus not to be missed!

I loved this set of stories.

Real laugh out loud stuff. Loved Diz. She is too funny, “it’s not my fault” rings in my ears. What a team. Hope there is another in the pipeline.

decent read. but who allowed that epilogue???

So this is the first time I've ever had a book nearly ruined by the epilogue. Good grief that was bad! why was that included? It feels like it was written by somebody else. I hard cringed through the whole last 30 minutes. Not only was it ridiculously melodramatic and tried way too hard to be simultaneously "edgey" and funny (which failed, thus the cringe coma) the epilogue punched brand new plot holes in on a already tidied up ending. Again, like someone else wrote it. I'm not even exaggerating when I say the epilogue has nearly ruined the entire book.

it's a decent, easy to read, cookie cutter lesfic book. there's nothing original here. just more of the same tried and true predictable formula every lesrom uses. if you're ok with that and keep your expectations low, you'll probably enjoy this bok. just, for the love of dog, skip that epilogue.

Funny Christmas Tales!

I usually don’t care for short stories, but after reading other reviews, having Ann McMan as the author, and Christine Williams as narrator, I took the plunge and am glad I did. Ms. McMan is a master at developing quirky, lovable characters such as Diz and Clarissa. I also like that MCs are smart, sassy women. Their Christmas adventures were zany and memorable a and brought to life by one of my favorite narrators, Christine Williams. I believe Ms. Williams could read a phone book, and it would be great! Go on have a Merry Christmas any y time of year!

Must Listen

Mcman has never let me down. These were four amazing, laugh out loud funny, sweet, romantic stories following Diz & Clarissa through their Christmases together. Christine Williams is once again a fantastic narrator for Mcman's story.

Excellent!

I really enjoyed Three (Plus One). As with a lot of romantic comedies you to suspend belief a little bit. But certainly a fun audio. Especially for the holidays. Christine Williams does an excellent job with the narration.

FUN LISTEN!!!

This audiobook takes place over several Christmasses. Diz and Clarissa work together and playfully flirt with each other. Their banter is so fun hear! Narrator Christine Williams outdid herself. Ok The story takes place in and around Baltimore and I happen to live 30 min from Baltimore so... extra points to Ann McMan! The story was funny from the beginning and I loved how the characters spoke like real people, with bad words and all :) I really loved all the characters and there were plenty of them. Even the dog with its sleeping/eye mask cracked me up! This audiobook was so fun to listen to. I wish the characters were all real and living only 30 min from me (I'd like to meet Diz). This review is all over the place. sorry. ha! If you want a funny, lesbian romance, narrated by someone who truly sounds like an actress, and you enjoy an occasional crab cake, please listen to this audiobook!!!

Classic Ann McMan

This collection is classic McMan with quick, smart, snappy dialogue back and forth. Reminds me of the old B&W movies with Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant (also with Rosalind Russell). Excellent narration by Christine Williams, especially for Clarissa.

The first story "Nevermore" The night of the company party. Diz gets wasted after Clarissa leaves the party with her boyfriend. Diz wakes up the next morning in her own bed and Clarissa in her apartment. Clarissa is in her apartment?

"A Christmas Tree Grows in Baltimore" Adventures of Diz trying to get a Christmas Tree on Christmas Eve during the worst blizzard ever.

"Blended Families" The families meet.

The final story is "'Twas the Nightmare Before Christmas" It's Christmas Eve and Diz and Clarissa's big plans are complicated when Diz's BFF, Marty is sick and she has no choice but to take care of his three kids, who want to see Santa at the mall – add dogs and a judge and it’s a typical Christmas for Diz and Clarissa
