From this improbable beginning comes friendship. Can there be more 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.
My Thoughts: I downloaded my copy as a free download from Amazon. I put the call out to my readers to choose my next Christmas read here and Bah, Humbug was the hands down winner. I think everyone was very intrigued by the name. Thank you Holly, Delia and Marjorie for the input! At first she is horrified to discover that Kyle is a bit of a Christmas Grinch but she soon discovers that he has his reasons to dislike Christmas so she conspires to save Christmas once and for all for Kyle and his family.
How does she do that? With lots of decorations and food of course! I find that my boyfriend is generally especially nice to me if I cook any of his favourite foods so I think that Lexi could be on to something here! Bah, Humbug is a nice and easy Christmas themed novella.
I would recommend it for anyone who loves the romance or chick lit genres or for anyone looking for a short, Christmas themed read that is easily read in one sitting.
This story was exactly what I was looking for. A light short read that truly captured the feel and spirit of the holidays. It had the perfect recipe of romance, cute kids, snow and holiday festivities to meet my needs.
Lexie and Kyle were both characters that you had no choice but to like from the very beginning. The entire story brought a smile to my face. The ending was a little syrupy for my liking however what is one to expect from this kind of read. It still put me in the holiday spirit. When trying to think of the right words to capture for this story I came across Horrocks thank you note at the end.
She managed to capture it so I am going to repeat it here. It was a light hearted, humorous, chick-flick-in-a-book story that allows people to curl up with a good book for an afternoon. Well said Horrock, I do not think I need to say more. Sounds like a perfect fairytale This was a very cute novella. There were lots of funny moments, but also a very touching part. I liked how the protagonists relationship grew and became something more special than a Lexi Anderson is a TV decorator who has recently moved to a new place with her two children.
It felt a little weird but nonetheless it was lovely. They were adorable and I think the story would have been less engaging without them. Their candour was totally endearing! A contemporary, sweet Christmas read that I highly recommend to romance lovers!
