A WERE, A BEAR, AND MISTLETOE by Christin Lovell
A Were, A Bear and Mistletoe: (A BBW Paranormal Holiday Romance) - Christin Lovell

Ember, a wolf shifter, is ready to tell Max, a bear shifter, that they are mates when she overhears him tell his friends that he does not like fat women. Devastated she leaves. On Christmas day her brother who is also her alpha locks her in a cabin with Max where they need to work things out. Once they overcome their pride and egos, they do work it out.

 

I liked this book. I loved Ember. I could identify with her. I liked that the story is told from her point-of-view. Max is a little too smug and needs the uncertainty that Ember brings into his life. It took a while, but they did begin communicating which led to a satisfying ending.

CHRISTMAS EVE AT FRIDAY HARBOR by Lisa Kleypas
Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor - Lisa Kleypas

Mark gets custody of his niece, Holly, upon the death of her mother. Holly has quit talking. When they go into Maggie's toy store, Maggie shows Holly a fairy house, and tells Holly she does not know the fairy's name but when she does she'll paint in above the house's door, and a conch shell which she tells Holly she can hear the ocean. Mark is attracted to Maggie but he has a girlfriend, so he is not free to date Maggie. Their attraction is great and grows after sharing a ferry ride to the mainland. What will they do? What will happen with Holly?

 

I enjoyed this story. I liked how Maggie connected to both Mark and Holly. I liked how Holly knew Maggie was safe and she could be herself. I loved that Mark had principles and would not date Maggie while he had a girlfriend. I did not like the girlfriend, Shelby. She came across as shallow as did Mark in regards to their relationship. I am glad I got my HEA. I will have to track down the other books in this series.

THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER by Barbara Robinson
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever - Barbara Robinson

1/1/2022 Just finished my annual rereading of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.  Still funny but this year it brought a tear to my eye as I realized how much the Herdmans changed.  As the narrator's mother said that there was good deep down in the Herdmans, I saw that she was right.  They changed.  When it was all over, they would not take back their ham nor take the candy canes and little Bibles but all Imogene wanted was a picture of Mary.  The Herdmans made the Nativity story realistic--refugees from another land, poor, alone, no place to go.  Kings who are tired from their journey.  It was a new way to see this story.  And it is always worth rereading every Christmas.

Review: A Christmas Story
A Christmas Story - Jean Shepherd,Dick Cavett

More of a 3.75.  I have the ebook and the audiobook.  I listened the the audiobook and it was the most disappointing part of the book.  Being used to hearing Jean Shepard's narration, it was a shock to the system to hear someone else telling the story.  Especially because their narration was bland and a little momotoned.  All of the movie is there--with minor changes here and there.  The story switches back and forth between older Ralphie's present day and him flashing back to memories from his childhood.  It isn't all one long story based on Christmas like in the movie.  It was funny and a little weird considering I have been watching the movie multiple times a year since the 80's.  The story of the movie is ingrained in my memory, so it was odd hearing the story as a mish-mash of seperate memories.  Not a bad story, though I do regret purchasing the audio version.
