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
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.
Then, one day, a snowman gives him an idea for his story. Incidentally, he ends up destroying it, not knowing that it belonged to his attractive, new neighbor. Lexi couldn’t believe that she lived nex...more
The characters in this book were a little flat (especially the two kids), but I can forgive that a) because it's a short story and b) they were far more developed than the last short book I read. However, they had enough endearing qualities to make them swe...more
I enjoyed the Christmas theme, and didn't mind that it was a bit sappy and sugary - I quite like excess sugar in my Christmas books. I liked the idea of Lexi's character, too - while I fully believe that women should be able to be whatever they want to be, I also believe that being a homemaker and / or Martha Stewart for the new generation is a...more
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 into the snowman to discover two things: the weapon fits int he body just under the head, and the snowman was suppose...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

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.

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

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

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
