Hello my dear Romantics!
Its December! The most wonderful time of the year! Time for Christmas shopping, getting together with friends and family, and indulging in some stress relieving clean romances.
Because of my busy work schedule I’m going to be recommending mostly novella’s this month. I hope you enjoy all of these little gems as I have.
This week’s pick is called Bah, Humbug! by Heather Horrocks
This book is the story of Lexi Anderson and Kyle Miller.
Lexi is a single mother who is set to be the next Martha Stewart. She and her kids, Steven and Trista, have just moved to Salt Lake City, Utah during the Christmas holidays to start a new life on what is famously called Christmas Street.
Lexi’s kids favorite author is Kyle Miller. A writer of Children’s mysteries. Little do they all know their favorite author actually lives right next door.
Kyle has had writers block for weeks and is staring down the barrel of a very tight deadline. To try and clear his head he decides to go for a walk. Kyle starts to walk down the street when he notices a snowman that has been built on what he thinks is his lawn. For years, Kyle hasn’t celebrated Christmas and is used to his neighbors Christmasing his yard. The snowman makes him think that it could be a breakthrough in his block and decides to experiment with it to see if it could work.
The villian in his book needs to hide a weapon so Kyle starts to pull apart the snowman trying to see if it’s plausible for the plot when he hears a very angry female voice telling him to leave her snowman alone!
That’s when Kyle turns around to meet Lexi. Of course Lexi still has no idea who he is, all she knows is that some lunatic is tearing apart her perfect snowman that she and her kids built for the film crew to come and film her with.
Later on a package that was supposed to be delivered to Kyle is accidentally dropped off at Lexi’s house. When she see’s the name on it, she is thrilled to think that she is about to meet her kids favorite author.
Lexi, all bundled up for the cold, walks across the yard to deliver the package, where the door is answered by the crazy man who took apart her snowman!
What ensues is a sweet yet fun story of how these two become entwined in each other’s lives for the holidays.
Will Lexi be able to make peace with Kyle? Will Kyle be able to celebrate Christmas again? Will you enjoy this sweet novella?
You’ll have to read it to find out!
