Bah, Humbug! (A Christmas Street Romantic Comedy Novellas #1)
For the first time in his writing career, Kyle has writer's block - until he sees the snowman on his lawn and realizes this is the perfect place for his villain to hide the weapon. He digs int...more
This book is certainly not my typical read. I could very much see this as one of those Holiday Hallmark movies that my mother just lives for and forces me to watch from time to time. I groan and complain, but then end up loving it and crying like the big...more
Young, divorced, up- and - coming - Martha Stewart of the new millineum, Alexis 'Lexie' Anderson just moved into her dream home in Utah. A week before Christmas, she is reading her children, Steven and Trista, a book from their favorite detective series by Jared Strong. Not realizing, that the author of her children's favorite detective sreies, Kyle Miller, lives next door...more
I loved how the author had no foul or crude language in the book at all! So if children wish to read this, do it. And there is absolutely no sex in it and there are no steamy scene...more
Bah, Humbug! was a fun holiday story. Surprisingly, even though it was fairly short I felt like you got to know the main characters well. Lexi is positive, det...more
Lexi is a mother of two doing it all on her own. Although she may have had hard times in the past, she’s now the successful Martha Stewarte...more
BAH, HUMBUG is a romantic comedy novella featuring Lexi Anderson-the latest ‘Martha Stewart’ newcomer and novelist Kyle Miller.
Divorced mom Lexi and her two children have just moved into a new neighborhood only weeks before the Christmas holidays. With only seven days until Christmas Lexi is a whirlwind of holiday cheer and Christmas magic. But the morning she wakes up and discovers a stranger beheading the snowman in her front yard, Lexi need...more
The beginning is enjoyable as the plot builds up, but then around chapter 9, the s...more
I wanna be Lexi Anderson when I grow up. I also wish I were Kyle Miller. He is a best selling novelist.
Maybe they'll adopt me.
I had no problem suspending reality and believing that these two fell in love in six days. The range of well written emotions the characters threw at each other (along with snowballs) and the f...more
The writing is good, but not great. I feel, if the author had given herself the time, or pages to write a little bit more into the story, it would have made a lot more sense....but then again, I like to have my romantic fiction have a bit more of a realistic stance to them. The ending, (spoiler alert!) where Kyle just decides to propose to...more
My main issue with this book was how unrealistic it is, both characters are 30 yet incredibly wealthy - Lexi takes Kyle decoration shopping because they live in Christmas street yet he has no decorations (actually he has decorations, he keeps...more
I have never been a huge fan of the novella, as I don't think many authors can pull it off without it feeling rushed. Unfortunately I don't think this author quite got there, it had potential but I think the ending seemed all rushed. Perhaps a simple kiss would have felt a bit more realistic. Further Lexi was questioning her feelings and being all scared about commitment and...more
Over this holiday break, I read through Heather Horrocks’ BAH, HUMBUG! (A Romantic Comedy Christmas Novella). I didn’t expect to find an underlying message about loss and grief, but, alas, there it was, nestled among this lighthearted story of holidays and family.
The plot brings together Lexi Anderson, an up-and-coming “Martha Stewart-type TV hostess”, and Kyle Miller, the author of the popular (fictitious) “Jared Strong” adventure novels, which Lexi’s kids happen to love. And they just happened...more
Lexi was a lover of Holidays and with two children, she certainly had the incentive to decorate and party in the spirit of said holiday. Kyle, was an old scrooge at 30 something...never decorating his yard and certainly not his house. The...more
It was short and fun. Obviously there was no room to truly develop much but for what it was it was good. Things had to move faster than I think it needed but, if someone is looking for something short and sweet, this is it.
