This was a grouping of 7 novellas set at Christmas time, with a bit of a Paranormal twist. Sadly, I wasn't impressed with any of the stories! They all ended abruptly, and didn't really have much of a romantic aspect. I'll attempt to go into each story in more detail.

"A Christmas Peril" by Karen Cantwell: This story was just stupid. It bore very little resemblance to the Dickens tale it was based on, and the heroine in it, while a mother, did some very irresponsible things! Really wasn't worth my

All the stories were fun without the need to have any darkness creep in with paranormal elements. They were light and maybe a little frothy but definitely entertaining and full of holiday spirit. The writing is great and flows along at a great pace from story to story even though each is different and unique.

"A Christmas Peril" is a play on the classic "A Christmas Carol" which finds Barbara Marr being visited by 3 very scary ghosts just before Christmas. It gets so bad that she stops sleeping

A Spirited Season is a compilation of six Christmas novellas with a paranormal or magical twist. The six novellas are written by three authors, two stories belonging to each author. I've wrote a few words about each story below:

A Christmas Peril by Karen Cantwell - This was the the first short story of the book and though I found it a bit odd, it was fairly enjoyable. After reading the other stories I found this to be one of the darker stories but not overly so. Regardless it just didn't have t

WOW! What fun!
A book filled with short novellas that all have a holiday “spirit” involved. Fun, easy to read and fast paced. Most of the authors were new to me – which is always a great way to pick new favorites! Enjoy! NetGalley and CWC provided an advanced review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

A Spirited Season is an anthology of sweet, cute, paranormal stories. They were a delightful holiday read that managed to portray all the good of the season. These are not deep, dark paranormal stories but hey they were just what the season called for. Of them all "O Christmas Tree" was my favorite.

The stories were short, to the point and yes, kooky. Some were not really romance stories and left me scratching my head but others provided the right "awww" for the season.
