A Trucker Christmas: A Romantic Short St... A Trucker Christmas: A Romantic Short Story - Jamie Schlosser

A nice quick revisit from Travis & Angel, who I love. And a clever but brief way to introduce new characters in the series. Unfortunately, they didn't pique my interest enough to continue on with the series though.

 

But this Novella (#2.5) and books #1 and #2 of this series are great reads that I would recommend :)

 

Happy Reading :)

Review: A Charming Christmas (A Magical Cures Mystery #6.5) by Tonya Kappes
A Charming Christmas: Magical Cures Mystery Novella (Magical Cures Mystery Series) - Tonya Kappes

This was the last of the series that I had on my NOOK and since it was a short story, I figured I knock it out and be done with the series. I read half the series and have no desire to continue reading it, but it was fun while it lasted.

 

The spiritualist community of Whispering Falls, KY decided that for economic reasons, they are going to hold a month long Christmas Bazaar, even though none of the residents celebrate Christmas. June and Oscar, due to back stories that involve growing up outside of the spiritualist community, can't wait since it brings back great memories for them. Petunia, new Village President, is not happy about the town going all out to attract Christmas shoppers and is bitchy to everyone about it. But alas, there is a WF Grinch on the loose and he/she is stealing the outside decorations from the stores. There is a subplot with June jumping to conclusions that Oscar is cheating on her. He isn't, but his reasons for being in Locust Grove is also due to economics of the village. Dumbass June strikes again.

I figured out who/what the Grinch was very early on but I just sat back and let the story play out.

Review: A Family for Christmas (Texas Grooms #3) by Winnie Griggs
A Family for Christmas - Winnie Griggs

This inspirational historical romance started with a lot of promise to be another excellent book by Ms. Griggs, but fell flat after the first 25% of the book. I will say this is the first book in the series I read and I had no problem with the world building or keeping previous relationships straight in my head, so the books can be read out of order without a problem.

 

Eve (the heroine) is on her way to Tyler, Texas for employment opportunity/banished from the family home due to her "behavior" issues; however, she leaves the train in Turnabout, Texas after problems involving a 10 year old stowaway on her train come to light. Not one to leave an unchaperoned minor to his own supervision, she takes physical guardianship of the Leo. I really liked Eve in the beginning; she was feisty, but only in defense of Leo and was the only one to see a lost boy rather than a criminal.

 

At the train depot they meet Chance Dawson (hero) and Dotty Epps, who take them in and give them shelter and food. The sheriff works to verify Leo's story. This is all good.

 

Then the book takes a turn into a too-sweet story. Chance is a little too perfect of a hero that it was hard to believe him as a real character; he was given a back story (functionally illiterate and the black sheep of a well to do family in Philadelphia) that had potential, but never really materialized into something that matters. Eve was a wet blanket of a heroine and scared of her own shadow to boot; she was so boring to read and tiring being in her head. At this point I just read without being invested in the story, which turned predictable plot twist after predictable plot twist. Everything is coming up roses until Eve gets into a bitchy mood and is unforgiving and selfish about Chance's secret - she blew up at him for admitting he is illiterate. I couldn't even with Eve after that...she needed Dotty to verbally slap her upside the head for her to realize her reaction was less than awesome.

 

I recommend skipping this installment of the series.

A Zombie Christmas by Anthony Renfro @atothewr
A Zombie Christmas 2: The Mike Beem Chro... A Zombie Christmas 2: The Mike Beem Chronicles - Anthony Renfro

I am doing Christmas in July this year, so I am sharing this wonderful Zombie short story.

 

You can see my review for Book I here.

 

I have read a lot of Anthony Renfro’s horror shorts and highly recommend them.

MY REVIEW

 

It’s a year later and the zombie apocalypse is worse than ever. Will it never end? Do the zombies die out on their own, slowly disintegrating into dust?

 

Mike Beem is back and he’s shooting, stabbing, decapitating the broken and decomposing zombies to save Donnie and his family. He puts everything on the line to add more survivors to his ‘family’.

 

The star on top of Mike’s Christmas tree is like a beacon of hope to those lost, seeking shelter from the zombies.

 

It is Christmas Eve, and come hell or high water, there will be a Christmas.

 

Mike’s Angels, Double and Trouble, have his back.

 

Horror, suspense, love and hope abound in this gruesome yet heartwarming story in the brutal world of the zombie apocalypse.

GOODREADS BLURB:  A boy lost. A family desperate. It’s Christmas in a Zombie Apocalypse and Mike Beem is once again aiming for another Holiday miracle. His goal this year isn’t toys for the kids in the neighborhood. His goal this time is trying to save one small life so another family doesn’t have to suffer the way he suffered. Can Mike save Christmas once again?

MY REVIEW

 

When one of the cubs asks, “Mom, why doesn’t Santa visit bears?”, this cute story unfolds as mama bear tells them why Santa doesn’t visit them on Christmas Eve, and Bo Bo’s solution to the problem puts a smile on my face, making me believe the saying, Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
