    A Kudzu Christmas

    A book of stories that you will want to send the mystery readers on your list. Tales about family set in the season for the family. A collection that includes a story about a vampire who brings his lover to meet the family, a little boy who goes around telling other children there's no Ssanta Claus, and a little girl who makes wishes. Visit the past with an old woman who remembers when girls didn't use bad language. A set of well written tales by talented authors put together by editors who ably pick stories to keep you happily reading. You'll remember what the season means and want to sit cozily ensconced in your favorite chair by the fire to read this fun collection. Recommended as a great Christmas present. Enjoy. I Did.
