❤💚❤💚 I love the vintage art and stories. It was strange that they chose to follow A Christmas Carol with a story closely based on it, but that's just a formatting issue. I will definitely read this again in the future.

These six stories were all set at Christmas or winter, but none stood out. The stories weren't very interesting and seemed a bit...disjointed? It took me just over an hour to read, so I'm not mad at the time spent, but I can't suggest these unless you're a smurfing fan of the Smurfs.

Of the three books in the Men At Work based around holidays, this was second best. If you're looking for something more focused on Hanukkah (but lightly) this fits the bill. Ian is Flash's boss and they hooked up six months ago. Ian is a goody-two-shoes wealthy son of a Senator. Veronica is a lady welder, hence the Flash nickname. This book was just as spicy as the previous two but there was some added light kink in this, too.

When a tragedy leaves Santa feeling like a shell of a human, it's up to the elves to make him see the light...and revenge. A violent departure from the sugary sweet romans that dominate the season, this was sad but fun.

This was my first time reading this book and I really enjoyed it. The narrator was engaging and the story moved on at a good pace. As someone who watches The Muppets version annually, it was fun to know that the "...who did NOT die" line isn't a Grover exclusive.

The pressure is on for journalist Dallas Dubois - an anchor position just opened up at her station, her estranged mother is trying to get in contact, she‘s directing a Christmas play, and she just announced to all of Tuscaloosa that she can‘t stand children...live on air. What more can go wrong? +726 #merryreaders #wintergames2020 #Acrosticathon #CYOHolidayAdventure #reindeerreadathon #winterathon #christmasspiritreadathon #bookspinbingo

This was really cute! These girls are best friends- one is in love with the other. The other is completely oblivious - she‘s in love with a model. The model is actually their classmate in drag. Oh this book is great fun at times 😂 +376 #WinterGames #MerryReaders #Acrosticathon #Winterathon #ChristmasSpiritReadathon #BookspinBingo #CrushtheRush #ReadyourWay #TheBookdemocracybingo #itscoldoutside #25DaysofManga

Bookgoil Very nice! ❤️ 2y
Andrew65 Think that often happens, if you read too many close together in a series, you need to then switch to another series. 2y

Traci1 @Andrew65 yeah, I enjoy the series, but they're starting to run together. I think a little breather will be good. 2y
Traci1 @Bookgoil thanks 😊 2y

I hadn't read any of this series before, but this one was terrific. I've already downloaded 2 more of the Christmas ones from the library. I definitely recommend it. (And unlike your book, @TheAromaofBooks there are puppies in this one 😄)
