My Review This is the second Talli Roland I’ve read and it was as much fun as the first!  Holly is an event planner who works for her parents’ company, throwing Christmas parties throughout the year.  She hates it and wants nothing more than to branch out and make it big.  When a British ex-pat […]

My Review The North Pole Prize is a sweet short story with all of the whimsy of the North Pole and the elves.  The blend of childhood favorites with a contemporary twist was so much fun!  Garrett is an engineer at the North Pole, a Scotsman with a troubled past who even makes an appearance in […]

My Review Ginger Krinkles was at times hilarious and at other times sad, but all in all, I liked it a whole lot more than I thought I was going to. Ginger Krinkles is the star of this book, a snarky holiday-hater that, at first, drove me nuts.  In the beginning, she came off as […]

My Review I was looking for a short Christmas read with a good plot and this was it, yet I still had some mixed reactions. Lottie definitely earns the title “Britain’s Worst Innkeeper,” although I don’t think that Aunt Kate would have won any awards in that area either.  When Aunt Kate is in an […]

My Review A Cinderella Christmas Carol is a holiday novella in the Suddenly Cinderella series by Hope Tarr.  I haven’t yet read the first book in the series, Operation Cinderella, but I plan to now!  This novella is centered around Starr who is all about work and not a lot about fun.  Starr is cast as the Scrooge of […]

My Review Her Heart’s Secret Wish is the debut novella from author Juliana Haygert, short, gritty, and totally engaging!  While loosely a “holiday” read, the holiday theme was an aside to the rest of the story.  With such a sweet cover, I thought I was going to be reading a sweet holiday story.  Don’t get me […]

Season of the Macabre

Season of the Macabre

My Review Season of the Macabre is a compilation of three previous volumes of short stories by the author, Cold Comfort Child, A Polite Exchange, and The Rare Gift.  I am a sucker for good macabre fiction, and this book delivered that.  All of the stories had a holiday theme, but definitely not of the “fluffy, […]

Three novellas, so three reviews! My Review While I enjoyed this novella, I definately think it would have made a better full-length novel.  It was almost too short to fully develop the nature of some of the characters, most particularly Margaret.  I was left wanting to know more about her, her history, what made her […]

Holiday with a Vampire II

Because this book contains stories by two different authors, both will be reviewed separately. My Review In A Christmas Kiss, Delilah Wentworth never expected that an unfortunate fang-chipping accident would completely change her life.  On the way to a mandatory meeting of her conclave, she finds herself lost and alone in Oklahoma,… until she meets Brett, […]

Because this volume contains two stories by two different authors, both will be reviewed separately. My Review In Christmas Cravings, when Grayson Stone returns to rural Wyoming for his annual Christmas visit, he discovers that the home he built with his own hands over a century ago has a new owner.  Not knowing who or […]
