Bah, Humbug! - Heather Horrocks
I got this novella as a freebie for my Kindle on It's the perfect time of year to read it because it is a short read and Christmas themed.

Lexi Anderson is an Martha Stewart-type TV hostess. Her kids are nuts about an adventure novel series, which at first unbeknownst to them, is their new neighbor, Kyle Miller.

Kyle is battling writer's block with the deadline of the next installment of his series looming.
He gets an idea for his story when he sees a snowman in his new neighbor's yard and destroys it by digging in the snowman's body to see if his characters weapon would fit. Unfortunately, that snowman was supposed to be the backdrop for Lexi's television show being filmed at her home.

Lexi later learns that Kyle is not a fan of Christmas due to the fact that is mother died years ago on Christmas Eve. Since this is a short story, I do not want to give too much more of the plot away. It was an enjoyable read and I will definitely read other books from this author in the future.
