I purchased this as a box set. I received one story. There was a lot of mix up regarding it. I received word the best thing to do was to request a refund. I did. Amazon promptly refunded it. The following morning I received a message from the main author in the set. I was assured it was fixed and complete. Believing this person, and wanting to support some of my favorite authors, I once again purchased the box set. I once again only received one book. Surprise, surprise it was a book from the ma ...more

This is a review for one of the books in this anthology - Candy Cane Killer by Mona Marple

Sandy & Coral have been allowed by their Dad, for the first time, to go Christmas shopping in the nearby town of Marsden. Sleepy Marsden has now been transformed into a proper town with a multi-story carpark and a shopping mall, where there used to be small independent shops along the High Street. And all this progress was thanks to the new mayor, Sharon Major who encouraged the growth of the town and t

Books Missing

The book was interesting but where are the rest of the books in this set? From the picture and the description I thought I was buying a set of Christmas mysteries, but when I got to the end of the first book there were no more books. Buyers beware! Do not buy this thinking you are buying a set of books. You are buying one good book only.

Great collection.

I saw from some of the reviews on Amazon that Amazon evidently messed it up and it came out with only one of the stories when it was first released, and then they fixed it later.

So glad they did, as it is a really awesome anthology by a wonderful group of authors.

Please don't let the reviews that were because of Amazon's error cause you to miss this fun collection!

This is supposed to be 12 stories but my kindle only gave me the 1st story by Abby L Vandiver. It was an okay story but I couldn't even find the name of it to find out what was next in the series, assuming she ever continued the series!

Returned to Amazon for a refund.
Only received one un-named story, and it has no table of content. Have received several e-mails from individual authors stating they don't know if or when the problem will be corrected.

Interesting plot

I enjoyed the book. The jet setting character was well developed and sympathetic. It ended abruptly with a possible romance and a new character introduced. It's like the author got bored and gave up. It should not have been a short story.

Good read for a mini mystery.

I loved the characters. Rose was an authentic bar keep. Good story line. I love her parents. Good looking out!

A mostly good collection of stories, but 3 of them didn't work for me at all. As usual Ani Gonzalez's book was a winner.

Incomplete collection

Story is so-so but what was supposed to be a 12 story Christmas collection was only one story that didn't even occur in Winter.

One book

From the cover you would think this was several books but it was just one a good read, good mystery but only one cup story.

Candy cane and corpes

Found this book boring from start to finish

What's worse is my kindle is not letting me go to the next book in the set of 12.
