I’m struggling to focus on two long books I’m trying to get finished before the end of the year. I just want to read quick fun Christmas themed books on my Kindle. So I might do that and if Les Miserables gets carried over in to 2021, so be it. Here are five short Christmas books I found in my Kindle library and am thinking of reading this week. Pictures and blurbs from Goodreads.
Another Backwards Christmas by Brooke Williams (93 pages)
Rob Joleigh has been burned by Christmas too many times. He takes his freelance writing career seriously and his claim to fame happens to be de-bunking Christmas festivities in towns across America. When he lands in South Pole, Alaska, he has one plan in mind…to get to the bottom of the whole ‘Backwards Christmas’ idea and spoil the holiday for as many people as possible.
Holly Howard knows there’s more to life than leading Backwards Christmas tours in South Pole, but she’s happy with her job, town, and friends. The only thing missing is someone to share it all with, but in a small town, it’s hard to meet new people. When a handsome writer comes into town, she’s intrigued, and hopeful that he could be that person. But she has no idea he’s the famous “Jolly Robber.”
It’s not just any Backwards Christmas in South Pole, Alaska as the backwards celebrations rage and the town comes together to show their spirit in full force!
The Night of the Coronavirus Christmas by Luke Carter (14 pages) No description given on Goodreads
The Christmas Thief by Julie Carobini (101 pages)
There’s a thief in Cottage Grove, and Tasha’s a suspect. Not exactly the dream she’d had in mind when she moved into her rustic fixer-upper cottage. Marc Shepherd wasn’t part of her plans either. The Stetson-wearing contractor moved in next door, kicking up dust and threatening to cut down a beloved pine that shaded Tasha’s cabin. With Christmas around the bend, and a criminal threatening the community’s peace, will Tasha solve the puzzle … before it’s too late?
The Naughty List by Ellie Mae Macgregor (56 pages)
While delivering presents on Christmas Eve, Santa gets a gift of his own.
Kate isn’t sure if Nikolai is the real deal, but this silver fox with big hands and thick thighs might just make her believe in Christmas miracles.
See if Kate has been naughty or nice in this light, fun, and steamy 15,000 word holiday romance with a guaranteed HEA.
Claire’s Christmas Catastrophe by Kerrie L Flanagan (58 pages)
10-year-old Claire loves Christmas. But this year a horrible Christmas Eve blizzard leaves her stuck in the house with her annoying twin brothers, no electricity and she can’t be with her friends. To make it worse, she realizes her Grandma can’t make it over to their house to spend the holiday with them. Will this end up being Claire’s worst Christmas ever?
