Hercule Poirot's Christmas by Agatha Christie
It's all in the family
when cantankerous old Simeon Lee is
murdered on Christmas Eve.
Mystery .... 271 pages .... 4/5 stars.
(It's Agatha Christie...need I say more?)
A Christmas by the Sea by Melody Carlson
A Maine town charms a
single mom and her son when they inherit
an old beach cottage.
Christmas novella/Romance .... 167 pages .... 3.5/5 stars.
(Cute story, but the ending felt rushed and just a little too neat.)
The Christmas Trespassers by Andrew J. Fenady
Three orphans disrupt
Shad Parker's plans for a quiet
Christmas. (As do some bank robbers.)
Western .... 306 pages .... 3.5/5 stars.
(I liked this one; I just wish the author had focused more on the three orphans and Shad and less on the bank robbers and townspeople of Gilead, Texas.)
