Book Description

PG-RATED FUN

BAH, HUMBUG! (A Romantic Comedy Christmas Novella)

Lexi Anderson is an up-and-coming, Martha Stewart-type TV hostess whose two kids love the Jared Strong adventure novels, which happen to be written by their new neighbor, Kyle Miller.

For the first time in his writing career, Kyle has writer’s block--until he sees the snowman on his lawn and realizes it’s the perfect solution to his plot problem. He digs in and discovers two things: one, his villain’s weapon will fit inside a snowman's body, and two, this particular snowman was supposed to be the backdrop for Lexi’s next show.

From this improbable beginning comes friendship, but can there be a happy ending for a woman who is afraid to get close again and a man who has shadows from his childhood?

Families join together and hearts are healed as this couple goes walking in a winter wonderland.

It's a novella of about 100 pages. The paperback version will be available soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Christmas Novella 29 Nov. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm quickly getting into the festive mood and I wasn't expecting too much from this freebee. But I have to say that it was an enjoyable Novella read. I agree with other reviewers that it was somewhat predictable, but there again, I think that most romantic comedies are, aren't they? I would also say that for a comedy, it didn't give me the belly laughs like I got from Rhona T Pinkleton's wonderful I'm Dreaming of a Wilde Christmas (A laugh-out-loud romantic comedy) which really did have me laughing-out-loud, but Bah, Humbug kept me smiling throughout and if you are into Christmas, I would grab it while it's on offer!

3.0 out of 5 stars good quick read 10 Oct. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book, set around Christmas time with an single mother and her children and a popular children's writer, however this is a very quick read which could be read in a day, however its a good chick-lik and will read it again around Christmas time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great first book for Christmas 26 Dec. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This was the first book I read on the Kindle - a great and simple story with a predictable but lovely ending. If you want something quick and easy to get you started on the Kindle this fits the bill perfectly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sickly and predictable 15 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Awful sickly sweet romance. Hated the heroine and her kids, just too perfect. The author tried to bring in a bit of spice with a mother dead for 22 years, but would a whole family really mourn and dread Christmas for that long? If you value your time give this stupid predictable book a miss and read something more sensible

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely christmas story 27 Aug. 2012
By Cianta
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love reading christmas stories any time of the year and this was just the right length for me - not too short but not long enough to get boring! The story was very gentle with both humorous and poignant moments. I agree it was a bit predictable but, having said that, I think any Christmas romance story with a happy ending would be hard pushed not to be at least a tiny bit predictable - and I liked the characters enough to really want them to end up as a couple.

I found it a lovely, easy read and would like to read more from this author.

3.0 out of 5 stars a trips down imagination road review 28 Dec. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
MERRY CHRISTMAS (Yes I decided a review of a Christmas novella on Christmas Day was the best way to go!)

Having just moved to the neighbourhood, Alexis Anderson doesn't know that her next door neighbour is none other than Kyle Miller, her children's favourite author. When Kyle decapitates her Snowman, she becomes determined to fix his Christmas spirit, and in a few short days ingrains himself into Lexi's life. Kyle never expected that anyone would be able to get through his shell, but Lexi and her children seem to have something about them that he can't resist...

The COYER facebook group strikes again, as this was recommended to me during a conversation about Christmas books, which I'll be honest, I haven't read many of and neither do I plan to (holiday themed books aren't really my thing!) But I did decide that I should give this one a go, after all it was free and Christmassy!

Having read Bah, Humbug! there's not really all that much to say, it is a short fluffy read, with a fairytale ending, and admittedly sometimes that is what you want from a book. There's no pretenses about how this would end and I was in the mood for that when I read it. However I can't help but feel like the ending was too fairy tale like for me, especially considering that the events of the book take place over a period of days.

I liked the ever so slight twist on a Christmas Carol, with Kyle playing Scrooge, though it was quickly got over and the story progressed. I was actually kind of surprised to discover that the author had included a quite emotional conversation between the various characters, that gave the book more depth than I had been expecting.

A very light fluffy read, and if that's what you're looking for this holiday, then Bah, Humbug! will provide!

Bah, Humbug! counts towards Winter COYER

2.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed the Christmas theme 26 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This one was really up and down for me. I started out hating it, moved to quite enjoying it around the 50% mark, and then felt meh again towards the end.

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 perfectly legitimate lifestyle choice, and I wish that there were more novels written with homemaker heroines. (I like the doctors and lawyers and cops and architects etc that feature so often in romance novels, but I also like some variety, ja?)

But plenty of things really didn't work for me. Some of them were fairly small things, like Kyle's brainstorm that the murder weapon (in the book he was writing) could be hidden inside the snowman, because the cops would never think to look there. (I'm fairly sure they would.) Others were big things, like Kyle's entire personality for the first third of the book. I absolutely loathed him for the whole of the first third. I found him arrogant, condescending, whiny and smug, and having a main character that I hate just isn't a good thing for me.

The central third was quite fun - sappy, again, but I found it fun and light and Christmassy.

The last third I found kind of meh. The fact that the whole family was still in mourning twenty-two years after Mama's death really grated on me, perhaps because it reminded me of my own family.
