This book is described as PG rated fun, and I would have to agree. It was a very short, quick read about an up and coming TV star changing her neighbor's outlook on Christmas... and love. Her neighbor also happens to be a famous author whose books she loves reading with her kids. I laughed out loud when Kyle mutilated Lexi's snowman for the sake of "research" for his book. It is totally something that I would do. I always get so caught up in whatever I am working on that I forget that someone might not appreciate me beheading their snowman to see if a gun could fit inside. This short story was super cute and perfect for the holidays. Plus it was free, so who can complain about that? There were a few typos and other little things that made me give it four stars instead of five.

I enjoyed reading this book. It was surly, funny, and crazy. It had everything Christmas really has....children, surly neighbors (or family), the perfect hostess (not me) and ROMANCE. Good read.

The book us good. The problem is page 102 is repeated about 25 times! It's frustrating.

I enjoyed this charming Christmas story that brings two people together for the holiday. I enjoyed how Lexi and Kyle meet and at first glance, I wondered if they would get along. Destroying your neighbor’s snowman isn’t a good way to begin, but happily, Lexi doesn’t hold a grudge and a friendship begins to blossom. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that her kids absolutely love Kyle and are two of his biggest fans. Where Lexi is all about Christmas and the spirit of the holiday, Kyle is the complete opposite. No decorations, no cheer, no spirit. He’s on deadline and struggling with writer’s block. Who has time for any of that nonsense? He even puts off his family when they ask him to host a family Christmas gathering. Soon, Kyle finds more reasons to participate in the festivities and by letting go of his anxiety gives him the boost he needs to overcome his writer’s block. I had a little difficulty accepting how quickly Lexi and Kyle jump from friendship to love and how a little Christmas decorating and hosting a gathering cures Kyle of the grief he has carried his whole life and why he avoided Christmas. But I’m a sucker for a happy ending, so it was all good. My Final Verdict: Excellent choice for readers who want a little Christmas cheer and whimsy in their reading, but don’t have the time to sit down and read a full-length novel.

Although it read quickly at over three hundred pages I wouldn't call it short. Delightful characters. Lexi and her children have moved and now live next door to their favourite author. Kyle doesn't realize he has new neighbors assuming the snowman close to his yard is another attempt by others to "Christmas" his yard. In the midst of serious writer's block he decapitates the snowman to see if hiding a weapon inside is possible. An irate Lexi tells him that snowman was a prop for her television show and the attraction begins. Lots of clean humour and fun.

I so enjoyed BAH, HUMBUG!, A Romantic Comedy Novella By Heather Horrocks that I couldn't put down. It is a light romance with a Christmas theme. Lexi Anderson is a Martha Stewart-type TV hostess who happens to buy her first home for her and her two children. The first week there, she builds a snowman to be the center back-stage prop for her TV show the next day. Lo and behold, when she looks outside that night, she sees a man with the snowman's head in his arms. She can't believe the gall of the man. Imagine her surprise when she finds out that he lives next door and that he is the author of her two kids mystery books' hero, Kyle Miller. It is refreshing to see how these two fix up their misunderstanding and that in just a week they realize that they have changed and found love in the process. It is a clean read, a sweet romance, and is certain to give your heart a glow. Merry Christmas.

Only a short read of close to 96 pages, this was a delightful novella and I whole -heartedly enjoyed reading it.   The characters were easy to relate to and the story flowed smoothly.    The only thing I wasn't too fond of was the instant love between the characters. Lexi was a lover of Holidays and with two children, she certainly had the incentive to decorate and party in the spirit of said holiday.   Kyle, was an old scrooge at 30 something...never decorating his yard and certainly not his house.   The spirit of Christmas had been buried in his soul, many years ago. Lexi had accepted his kindness in exchange for her help with decorating his  yard for the first time ever and hostessing his family's Christmas gathering.   Her expertise, her joy, her children, and a bit of Christmas magic,   and the man with the hardened heart couldn't help but accept the beginnings of healing, along with his two brothers and their Irish father. It was a great story of healing and joy and Love.   Being short, I highly recommend it for the busy holiday season!

This is the story for you. It's a novella, so it's a quick read. But it's so much fun, you'll probably finish it in no time.

Cute, clean, romantic This is a quick, fun read.  It has some unrealistic aspects, but that is also what makes it fun. Warnings: None I would let my 15 year old read this book.

Lexi is divorced with two children and has a decorating show on TV.  She buys a house on Christmas Street and moves in just before Christmas.  Lexi immediately decorates for the holiday, both inside and out.  One of her decorations is a snowman which she builds on the property line between her and her new neighbor.  Kyle is a famous author and her neighbor.  Lexi first meets him when he is taking the head off her snowman, but she doesn't know who he is - just a snowman murderer.  Kyle is pretty grumpy and doesn't like Christmas - or almost anything. Kyle's brothers remind him that it is his turn to host their family Christmas but he says he can't because he is on a deadline. This is a very difficult time of year for Kyle's family because their mother passed away on Christmas Eve over twenty years earlier. Finally, Lexi and Kyle meet for real and Lexi makes a deal with Kyle that if he will go to her son's birthday party, she will handle all the Christmas decorating and meals for Kyle's family's Christmas festivities. I loved this book and didn't want to put down. I thought the writing was really good and the characters were wonderfully written.  Even though Kyle wasn't likable at the beginning, he turned out to be a good guy.  Even Lexi loosened up as the story progressed.  The author did a great job with having a lot happen in such a short story and a short time frame.  This was a great, quick Christmas read and I highly recommend it.

Kyle Miller is a best-selling author of children’s mysteries. For the first time in his career, he has writer’s block. Nothing is more important to him than his writing career, and he hates Christmas. He is the Grinch of Christmas Street (this is the actual name of the street he lives – dumb, huh?) Then, one day, a snowman gives him an idea for his story. Incidentally, he ends up destroying it, not knowing that it belonged to his attractive, new neighbor. Lexi couldn’t believe that she lived next door to Kyle Miller, her kids’ favorite author. She also didn’t realize how rude he could be. Yes, he was also handsome, but she doesn’t need another man. She should stick with her mantra: “Safe, secure, and single.” If Lexi was the new Martha Stewart, then you don’t want her anywhere near your house on holidays. She’d make everything into a decoration. I don’t know why Kyle let her talk him into it. And $500 for Christmas decorations!? Are you kidding me? And all for a woman? Could Kyle be any stupid? And Lexi thinking she can “bring a family together at Christmas”? Phooey! Overall, this was a nice, clean romance. It was like any Hallmark movie special…at Christmas. Bah, Humbug!
