I hate doing this but I can't give even one star to this short story.
It was free for my Kindle and that's the only good thing about. It was a silly story of a boy, about age 14, who shows up on the doorstep of two, I assume elderly, sisters. He believes his mother and her new bethrothed are planning to do away with him and he asks for sanctuary. He won't tell his name. So they let him stay, figure out who his mother is, and reunite them.
Nothing in the story to recommend it.
Fun little story, nothing exceptional. Read in half an hour...just a few pages long.

Not a bad Christmas story for a freebie.

This is a cute short story. I enjoyed the descriptions of the scenes and liked the characters of Elf and Ally. Elf, short for Elphinia, is the most clever of names for a holiday book.

If you need a little something to pass the time, this may be the perfect couple hours for you. It is an easy read with likable characters. I was a little disappointed in the plot. Even short stories need a good plot, which this book is lacking. Nevertheless, it provided nice relaxation time by the fire with a hot c

Eigentlich hatte ich eine Regency-Liebesgeschichte erwartet, aber ich wurde enttäuscht. Eine Liebesgeschichte sucht man bei "Christmans Scandal...Not!" vergeblich! Es geht im Prinzip nur um zwei verarmte Schwestern, die einen ausgerissenen Jungen bei sich aufnehmen und herauszufinden versuchen welche Geschichte sich hinter ihm verbirgt. Wirklich öde, trotz der Kürze der Geschichte.

This was a sweet short story and a freebie. It was good, but not really a romance. More of just a quick story that's for something to read or passing the time. I liked it but it didn't pull me in. I kept waiting for the shoe to drop (like a suspense or mystery), however this is not one and the ending was a little endearing and cute. Good Luck

22 pages - fast read - but didn't engage at all.

This is just a very short story where a young boy runs away and is taken in by two older women. He refuses to tell them who he is, only that Elf had promised if she could do anything to help...she would.
Nov 14, 2013 Jennifer rated it did not like it  ·  review of another edition this book sucked so badly!!! I for one am so glad it was as short as it was so I didn't have to suffer through it for too long, because I would have stopped reading it if it were longer.
This was a very interesting short story. I though it was well written and enjoyed reading it. I look forward to more stories by this author.
A nice and tidy little story. The sisters are good kind-hearted people. Not exactly my cup of tea but well written none the less.

It was a freebie & a waste of time to read. Not a particularly bad story but nothing remarkable or memorable.
Sweet little novellete - two ladies come to the rescue of a lost boy at Christmas time
I can't help but wish this was longer so I wouldn't feel so lost while reading this.
