    I couldn't get into these stories. The main characters came across self-centered and shallow. The plot lines seemed contrived and hokey. The emotion and angst the girls were supposed to be feeling was explained, but never felt. I usually enjoy Christmas novellas but these weren't my cup of tea.

    These two novellas bring the holiday spirit back into your life. In my opinion, they are not too sugary sweet that you can't stand to read it. The stories are funny, and for the most part, realistic. The romantic scenes were just enough detail without being R-rated. I appreciated how the author brought the two stories together at the end--giving you the satisfaction that the two friends found happiness in the Christmas season.

    Fun, light hearted Christmas romance

    This review was written for Merry Humbug Christmas.
    This was the first of Sandra's books that I've read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Merry Humbug Christmas is full of humor and the characters were unpretentious, quirky and loveable at the same time, real people you could meet in everyday life.

    This is a story about Christmas and family, and that's a winning combination with me. The secondary characters of Patrick's mother and Damian's extensive family are delightful. Yet there is a bittersweet element, as both Joss and Reese felt like observers when it came to celebrations. Joss "couldn't manage more than the role of simple observer, never a participant" and Reese "felt as if she stood on the outside, looking through a frosted window at the joy and celebration inside." But all that is about to change, with much laughter and joy.

    Christmas can be a difficult time for many people, and Sandra created an interesting vehicle with the way Joss and Reese partnered up to avoid all the trappings of celebration each year. I was particularly drawn to Patrick, a man whose deep spiritual convictions made an impact on Joss: "She wasn't sure she'd ever known a man who openly prayed, and she wondered what it must be like to have such a cemented foundation of faith and reverence for something so clearly . . . unclear."

    Humor is one of Sandra's strengths, evidenced by the picture at the bottom of this post, and there were several laugh-out-loud moments. Joss and Patrick doing karaoke, for instance - and Reese's whole thing with the deer.

    Merry Humbug Christmas is a funny, light-hearted, romantic read - truly a "feel good" book. Recommended.

    This book was provided by B&H Books through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

    What great fun to read this at Christmas! The book is two stories in one about two friends, Merry and Reese, and their experience with Christmas one season. Both are anxious to escape the normal Christmas hubbub due to old memories and what they think are their unusual family histories. Merry (who changed her name to Joss) signed up for a "bah, humbug" cruise that was cancelled due to lack of travelers. Never fear, though, because she is automatically rebooked on a Christmas cruise. Reese, who tries to avoid her Florida-based family due to their vegan and hippie followings, goes for a long holiday trip with her new fiancée to meet and stay with his WHOLE extended family. Wow, the escapades in that story! I think the reader expects a happy ending and Sandra Bricker doesn't disappoint. Getting there, though, is the fun of both stories. It's a very enjoyable read!
