Return to Jenkins Cove by Rebecca York, Ann Voss Peterson & Patricia Rosemoor
Christmas Spirit (A Holiday Mystery at Jenkins Cove) - Rebecca York
Christmas Awakening (A Holiday Mystery at Jenkins Cove) - Ann Voss Peterson
Christmas Delivery (A Holiday Mystery at Jenkins Cove) - Patricia Rosemoor

CHRISTMAS SPIRIT by Rebecca York
Chelsea Caldwell is right back where she started, seeing ghosts and being the talk of the town. Yet there's something sinister happening in the small town of Jenkins Cove, and Chelsea might just be the person to uncover it.


It felt like this book couldn't decide what it wanted to be. Romantic suspense, paranormal romance? Each separate classification would've worked, unfortunately, mixed together created an unfortunate mess.

The characters were bland and dull, the plot got lost in the suspense/paranormal/killer/ghosts mess, and the romance left me utterly cold.


CHRISTMAS AWAKENING by Ann Voss Peterson
After ten years, Marie Leonard is back in Jenkins Cove determined to discover why her father's been murdered...But she'll have to deal with skepticism by the local chief of police, the man who broke her heard ten years ago, and a killer determined to silence her forever.


Though this one also had some paranormal elements, it was a much more straightforward romantic suspense story than its predecessor.

Unfortunately, the suspense aspect was the only thing I enjoyed about this one, even though the villain's motive left much to be desired.
The characters were bland (the hero was a self-pitying fool and I simply couldn't stand his moaning toward the end), and the romance tepid.


CHRISTMAS DELIVERY by Patricia Rosemoor
Lexi thought Simon, the father of her preteen daughter, dead for thirteen years, but instead of dead, he's merely been through hell, thanks to human traffickers operating in the small town of Jenkins Cove.
But now, Simon is back, determined to make whoever the culprit is pay...


This second-chance quasi-romance left me utterly cold. The characters were dull and bland, I didn't care about their relationship in the past (since we never got to see it) or in the now (because they simply weren't that compatible).

The main suspense arc of this "series" was never that interesting, so the resolution (rather predictable in all ways) didn't bring much satisfaction.

I'm pretty sure when I read this story I only gave it 3 stars...
The Holiday Hoax - Skylar M. Cates,C.K. Kelly Martin

I don't know maybe I was having a bit of a Scrooge complex at the time but apparently when I listened to this one the other day it worked a whole hella' lot better on audio. So, I'm just going to tip my hat to K.C. Kelly and credit the fine job he did with the audio and my obviously improved disposition and call it a day...and really, I'm thinking maybe I've taken leave of my senses because..."What the hell folks? Christmas stories in June? FFS...I can't even...I have no excuses but it's a thing I did...yeah, there's one more Christmas story to come. Happy Summer!

My One and Only: A Holiday Novella - Book One in the Harper's Corner Series by Christina George
My One and Only: A Holiday Novella - Christina George

 

The wrong choice broke her heart. The right choice upended his world. Having reached that fork in the road, which direction will they take? My One and Only is a tale of love lost, hope found and finding the courage to begin again. Jessica gave her heart to one brother and her friendship to another. Five years on she's a jilted bride living in a small town with a thriving business and a ton of hidden regrets. Matt is the one guy who has never let her down. He's a shoulder to cry on, someone to laugh with and perhaps the guy, she can't live without. A winter wonderland with the warmest of results.
