A Not So Merry Christmas Murder, Meredith Potts
A Not So Merry Christmas Murder (Hope Ha... A Not So Merry Christmas Murder (Hope Hadley Cozy Mystery Series Book 5) - Meredith Potts

I enjoyed this but not as much as some of her others. I voluntarily chose to review this. I've given this cozy a 4*. What bothered me the most was the way she left her boyfriend flapping in the wind, while she went investigating with her brother the cop. At what point does the boyfriend takes a stand or something. Anyway, just my opinion.

Merry Christmas, Splat - Rob Scotton

This book is about splat the cat who wants desperately to get a gift from Santa. He does chores around the house that just turns into even bigger messes. However this book shows us that it is the thought that counts. Splat is pleasantly surprised on Christmas morning.  I would use this book around Christmas time. It is leveled 460 L.

Merry Christmas, Mr. Miggles
Merry Christmas, Mr. Miggles - Eli Easton Narration was really good. Story was great too although the allegations thing is one of those subjects that frustrate me when the character doesn't deserve it. Otherwise really sweet read.

Librarian's Delight
Merry Christmas, Mr. Miggles - Eli Easton

“I sucked on his tongue like it was made of cocaine, chocolate, and orgasms.”

 

Full disclosure first: I am a librarian in my day job so I may have been a wee bit prejudiced when it came to this story, its setting, and the characters involved. J

 

And this story is all about a library and its more than dedicated head librarian, Mr. Miggles. Having said that, the story is told from Toby Kincaid’s perspective. He’s the twenty-four year old assistant librarian who has looked up to his boss ever since he started his job, just as he’s intrigued by the sad aura surrounding him.  While it doesn’t occur to Toby that he might do more than ‘just’ admire Sean Miggles, those of us who read between the lines soon pick up on that fact.

 

When, as it says in the blurb, Sean Miggles is accused of a crime he didn’t commit, Toby decides to step up to the plate and not only save his boss but also the library they are both devoted to.

 

I loved how the library was described in this book. Libraries are so much more than ‘just’ a collection of books; they are vital to local communities in numerous ways and this story shows that in vivid detail. And, just as the library in Toby and Sean’s hometown is under threat, so are libraries almost everywhere, which made me extra invested in this story. When Toby rallies the troops (also known as borrowers/library visitors) to state both Mr. Miggles’ and the library’s case to the local council, the book got an almost magical quality, very fitting for a seasonal story.

 

Mr. Miggles fascinated me from the moment the book started and the better I got to know him and the more I learned about his past, the more I grew to adore him. Unfortunately Toby didn’t work quite as well for me. For about the first half of the book he rubbed me up the wrong way, which had probably a lot to do with the Justin situation. Once he got his shit together and decided to step up to the plate, he more than redeemed himself though. By the time this story reached its happily ever after I was fully invested in both Toby and Sean Miggles, as well as their future together.

 

This was an easy, mostly angst free, but captivating story. Mr. Miggles past and his present predicament give the story drama while Toby mostly made me smile or grimace. The story takes its time before getting steamy but when it does….

 

Overall I can only say that I thoroughly enjoyed this story and was delighted to have four hours without interruptions to read it from start to finish in one sitting – Reader’s (and librarian's) delight.
