The Christmas Cottage and Ever After by Samantha Chase
The Christmas Cottage
Lacey Quinn does not believe in happily-ever-after of the legend of the Christmas Cottage. But her best friend does, and she’s the one getting married. It’s Lacey’s job to make sure everything at the cottage is perfect for the newlyweds. Instead, she finds herself snowed in with the best man, and she begins to wonder if fairy tales really can come true.
Ava Callahan wants desperately to believe in love everlasting. But when Brian McCabe walks back into her life and upsets her carefully organized world, her commitment to perfections makes it hard for her to accept the love that’s right in front of her. Will it take a night in the Christmas Cottage for Ava and Brian to find their happy ending?
Thoughts: Both of these stories sound really cute, and like a Hallmark movie! Hahaha. I will hold onto these for next Christmas to read since I wasn’t able to this year!
The Humbug Murders: An Ebenezer Scrooge Mystery by L. J. Oliver
Ebenezer Scrooge from Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol investigates a shocking murder—before he becomes the next victim—in this playful mystery in a new series from a New York Times bestselling author.
Scrooge considers himself a rational man with a keen sense of deductive reasoning developed from years of business dealings. But that changes one night when he’s visited by the ghost of his former boss and friend, Fezziwig, who mysteriously warns him that three more will die, and ultimately Ebenezer himself—if he doesn’t get to the bottom of a vast conspiracy.
When he wakes the next day, Scrooge discovers that not only is Fezziwig dead, but he’s under arrest as all evidence points toward himself: Scrooge’s calling card was found in the cold, dead hand of Fezziwig’s body, and someone scribbled “HUMBUG” in blood on the floor nearby.
Now, Scrooge must race against the pocket watch to clear his name, protect his interests, and find out who killed his last true friend—before the “Humbug Killer” strikes again. Joining Scrooge in his adventures is a spunky sidekick named Adelaide, who matches his wits at every turn, plus the Artful Dodger, Fagin, Belle, Pickwick, and even Charles Dickens himself as a reporter dealing in the lurid details of London’s alleyway crimes.
Full of action and wry humor, The Humbug Murders is a fun take on a classic character—Scrooge as you’ve never seen him before.
Thoughts: I LOVE the Christmas Story, so I was actually excited to get this! I wish I would have had time to read it this month, but I’ll definitely do that next Christmas time. (:
Lit Cube December, everyone! I liked this box. The items in the box weren’t worth the price of this one at all. I really like the tshirt and the books, but the other things seemed a little silly. But hopefully next month will be better!
Next month’s theme is “Perfect Penpals”! There are still spots open, so if you’re interested, head to www.lit-cube.com to get yours!
I hope you enjoyed my #LitCube unboxing!
Thanks for reading! (:
