Malmö/Lund, Sweden, 2000

A radical feminist turned cop and a former Lucia candidate are expecting—twins. A gender studies professor burns her candle at both ends. A lovelorn bus driver is feeling fragile, until an unexpected visit brings her some queer holiday cheer; and an obstetric nurse single mother delivers the expected, while her past catches her unprepared.

This is both a sweet and steamy coming together of all of the characters we have met so far in this series. You could read this independently from the rest of the other novellas, but you’d miss a lot so I recommend reading the other three first.

Set in Malmo, Sweden, the novella takes place over four days of advent, with each day focussing on a different person or couple. I really liked all of the stories that appear, but obviously with it being a novella we don’t spend much time with the charac

The final novella And Then There Were Four of the A Tinsel and Spruce Needles Romance series. In small vignettes we meet the crew from Candlelight Kisses, Little x, and Wild Bells making their way through Advent 2000 towards the first Christmas of the new Millenium.

Police officer Erika Stolt treats her highly pregnant (and very horny) wife Padma to a surprise night out. Gender Studies Professor Helena Hansen gets the most exciting 2nd desert from her two new flatmates. Bus driver Sophie is happy

A final installment of the series, bringing all the characters and stories from the previous 3 books together. So I definitely recommend you read them in order.

There was ONE chapter of the book I ended up skipping entirely because it focused on side character/ex-room mate Helene having a threesome with some college students. She was never really a main character in previous installments in my mind, and I never cared enough about her to want to know more. So to say this part felt completely out o

And Then They Were Four
is book number four of the A Tinsel and Spruce Needles Romance collection. Though it’s part of a series it can most definitely be read as a stand alone.

I appreciate Elna Holst’s writing style; there’s something very appealing about it. She’s a solid writer with a lot of promise. She likes to gently thread symbolism and theme throughout her storytelling; it gives it significance and import.

And Then They Were Four is essentially four vignettes that are connected by the overl

And Then They Were Four by Elna Holst
Tinsel and Spruce Needles #4

Short but sweet this had four short Christmas clips from the lives of several people and all of the people in the clips knew or were related to one another.

What I liked:
* That I had a feel for the characters even though I had not read previous stories in the series
* That all four Advent stories overlapped and came together connecting the stories with one another
* The variety
* That there was hope and potential for happiness for a

I love it! I just love this book so much, I have one complaint and that is that it isn't a full-length, War & Peace-sized volume.

On a more serious note, this is the fourth in the Tinsel and Spruce series from Elna Holst and gives us a look into the lives of the characters from the previous three stories. "And Then They Were Four" could work as a standalone but I would highly recommend the three previous books; Candlelight Kisses, Little x, and Wild Bells as they are a joy to read.

Once again it

This is the fourth book of Holst’s Tinsel and Spruce Needles series that essentially has one book every Christmas – so the title can be as much play about that, as about the arrival of twins.

We return to Erika and Padma in And Then They Were four who are having twins and still just as crazy about each other. This story opens with some pretty sweet and steamy pregnancy sex. I should state somewhere that Holst does a superb job writing erotic scenes that don’t sanitize the human body. This realism adds something hotter to the mix. Poor Fifi is nursing a broken heart as she left Roz in New York six months ago. Don’t worry, no one’s unhappy this Christmas. Especially me, who all but squ ...more

An amazing ending to the first series of stories. Steamy experiences and reconnection will leave you wanting more. Interspersed within, we have new life growing and waiting to be birthed. My wish, we have more of Nilla. You will not be disappointed.

Often quirky, always queer, Elna Holst is an unapologetic genre bender who writes anything from lesbian lust and love stories to the odd existentialist horror piece. Find her on Instagram (@elnaholstwrites) or Goodreads (yes, you're right here). ...more
