I was super pleased when I had the chance to review this book. I love anything that had to do with Christmas. I love the music, the sights, and the smells of the Holiday season, and this book….is a PERFECT new Holiday tradition. Jeff Spalsbury filled this book with lots of love, laughter, uniqueness, and lots of great, unusual stories that will warm your heart.
This collection of 25 stories is perfect for a Christmas tradition of reading one each night on the 25 days of Christmas. I, of course, didn’t do that, but I will be doing that next year. I became so engrossed in this wonderful collection that before I knew it, I was on the final page. I was filled with warmth and laughter and wrapped up in the Christmas spirit.
Each story comes unique with it’s on little plot. No two are exactly the same, and each one will leave you with a smile on your face. From love, to paranormal, to out of the ordinary, Jeff Spalsbury is beyond talented in his writing ability and capturing the hearts of readers.
