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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Best-selling author, Kyle Mille...more

I don’t read very many novellas and I can tell you why. I never feel there is enough depth. The characters don’t get enough time to tell their story and the plot goes from zero to sixty pretty quick. This applied to this book as well. That being said, I think Ms. Horrocks did a great job with the amount of time/space/number of pages she was given. Bah Humbug! has the potential for being a great full length novel. I...more
The beginning is enjoyable as the plot builds up, but then around chapter 9, the s...more
This book is a great, feel good short story to get you in the mood for the Christmas season. Lexi Anderson, who is hailed as the new Martha Stewart (minus the jail time - need to see what that is all about) moves next door to Kyle Miller - who just so happens to be her children's favourite author, and also just so happens to hate Christmas due to the passing of his mother 22 years ago on Christmas Eve.
Lexi sets about to change all that for Kyle a...more
However, there is another side to this plot, revealing deep-seated memories which one family find hard to cope with, although 22 years is taking it a little too far, in my opinion.
Using a grain of salt, I read this in the spirit of which it is obviously meant and enjoyed gorgeous Kyle Mille...more
I laughed out loud when Kyle mutilated Lexi's snowman for the sake of "research" for his book. It is totally something that I would do. I always get so caught up in whatever I am working on that I forget that someone mi...more
3 1/2 stars from me because the romance pacing was off for me. I would have liked it better if the story had...more
