Keeping with my Christmas in January theme, here’s what I’ve read.
A Wizard for Christmas by Dorothy McFalls– Short but sweet story of a lonely woman who finds a family of wizards for Christmas. Of course, there’s a soul eater in the mix so things are not always what they seem.
Ice God’s Christmas by Helen Scott Taylor–A woman goes searching for her birth parents while conducting business with a North Pole theme park and ends up as a pawn in Odin’s game. Very unique and fun.
Loveable Christmas Angel by Mimi Barbour–A woman sets out for Hawaii to scatter her mother’s ashes and discovers an aunt only to have her die shortly there after (natural causes) then finds herself guardian to a surly 5 year old cousin. Loved the spirit of the heroine and her determination to make lemonade from all the lemons hurled at her.
Save Me, Santa by Nina Bruhns, Ann Charles, Rita Herron, Lois Lavrisa and Patricia Mason. This is an anthology with some very unique stories. Must Love Santa was in last week’s post. One is a Ground Hog Day set to Christmas Carols and deadly consequences. Another cute story about a woman who substitutes cooking words for swear words as she tries to deliver a restraining order. The third story has a woman hiding from a violent stalker in an old folks home and is filled with witty dialogue. And the last was a giggle-worthy love story set in a mortuary. Each story involved notions of family in one way or another and each was quite fun on their own.
I can’t believe I was able to read so much in 5 hours. Maybe my Kindle app won’t be as full to bursting by the end of the year.
