Book burble: Three Heartwarming Tales of Romance and Holiday Cheer

LEIGH GREENWOOD - BAH, HUMBUG! Advertising exec Nate Jerome wanted to go somewhere hot for Christmas, but when his beautiful neighbour, Milly Thurston, offered holiday cheer, their passion and the spirit of the season made the tropics look positively artic.

ELAINE FOX - CHRISTMAS PRESENT When Susannah Murphy returned home for Christmas, a late-night saviour taught her the secret to happiness, and the meaning of true love. But was his appearance the hand of fate, or something a little more wonderful?

LINDA WINSTEAD - BLUE CHRISTMAS Jess Lenox didn’t date musicians, especially handsome, up-and-coming ones. But her future rested on a ghost of a chance – to realise that Jimmy Blue was a gift from heaven and that a Christmas of true bliss was just a star away.

All three contemporary set stories are heart-warming and sweet tales laced with some sizzlie moments though none bold enough to cause the primmest of us to blink, blush or set our pulse into heart attack mode. And all three share with the compilation itself a copyright date of 1997, yet they don’t feel ridiculously out of date, they are still appealing.

The three also shared a supernatural element but in the first tale BAH, HUMBUG! by LEIGH GREENWOOD it was more incidental than the two following tales which relied on their magical characters being in more key roles. Hard pushed to pick a favourite but I realise the story line of BAH, HUMBUG stayed with me longest.

BAH, HUMBUG! by LEIGH GREENWOOD (1997) – effervescent cheerful fun, ghost element unobtrusive presence till the reveal, just the right tone.
CHRISTMAS PRESENT by ELAINE FOX (1997) – paranormal element popped up fast and often, in an obvious way, but there was a pleasing twist to this.
BLUE CHRISTMAS by LINDA WINSTEAD (1997) – supernatural component closest to Dickens’s Christmas Carol, pleasantly predictable and neat tale.

Soon into the post to Somerset for Flutterbies9.
