Bah, Humbug by Heather Horrocks-a review
BAH, HUMBUG (A Christmas Novella) by Heather Horrocks
BAH, HUMBUG is a romantic comedy novella featuring Lexi Anderson-the latest ‘Martha Stewart’ newcomer and novelist Kyle Miller.
Divorced mom Lexi and her two children have just moved into a new neighborhood only weeks before the Christmas holidays. With only seven days until Christmas Lexi is a whirlwind of holiday cheer and Christmas magic. But the morning she wakes up and discovers a stranger beheading the snowman in her front yard, Lexi needs to confront the Scrooge. And to Lexi’s shock, she will eventually learn that the man ‘murdering’ Frosty is none other than her neighbor-the famous author Kyle Miller.
Kyle is a New York Times best selling author and is on a writing deadline. When his extended family reminds him it is his turn to host the Christmas festivities, he must decline due to his work. Other people have jobs but Kyle believes his family sees his writing as nothing more than a hobby. But Kyle’s family has always had difficulty with the Christmas holidays due the death of their beloved mother on Christmas Eve, and Kyle isn’t willing to face the memories again.
Lexi is a ball of Christmas energy. With her need to spread Christmas cheer, Lexi will make it her mission to ensure that Kyle and his family celebrate the holidays together. As the Christmas countdown beings, Kyle and Lexi will discover that there is more to their relationship than a ‘Martha Stewart’ Christmas. Kyle has fallen in love and wants Lexi to be his wife.
BAH HUMBUG is a cute and humorous Christmas story with a HEA that is six days in the making. If you love quick, little romantic storylines, Bah, Humbug is for you. The writing is simple, the storyline is fast paced and the romance is clean and non-sexual.
