Sandra D. Bricker in her new book, “Merry Humbug Christmas book coverMerry Humbug Christmas” published by B&H Books gives us Two Tales of Holiday Romance.

From the back cover:  Don’t lose your head over the holidays.

Merry Humbug Christmas features two holiday romance novellas from hilarious and heartwarming author Sandra D. Bricker. — the perfect gift to yourself or someone else at this most wonderfully stressful time of year.

In “Once Upon a Jingle Bell,” A Bah! Humbug cruise to the Mexican Riviera is Joss Snow’s answer to this year’s quest to avoid the holidays completely; at least until she’s rebooked on a different kind of cruise altogether. Candy canes, holly wreaths, reindeer and ornaments seem to be stalking her on the 12 Days of Christmas holiday cruise extravaganza. An escape back to land is her only goal . . . until she meets a kindred spirit in rugged Irishman Patrick Brenneman, and then the game is on! Avoid Christmas festivities at all costs . . . except maybe for that one stop under the mistletoe.

In “It Came Upon a Midnight Deer,” Reese’s guilt over abandoning best friend Joss on their holiday tradition of avoiding all things Christmas is trumped by the joy of her recent engagement. Meeting Damian’s family for the first time on idyllic Sugarloaf Mountain is about as far from that Bah! Humbug cruise as she can get, and Reese can hardly wait to get there. But from the moment they hit that deer in the road just two miles from the cabin, everything seems to go wrong. There are no drummers drumming or pipers piping this particular year! And once she sets her future in-laws’ family cabin ablaze, she’s pretty sure there won’t be even ONE golden ring in her future.

“Merry Humbug Christmas” is about best friends Joss and Reese and their mutual dislike of Christmas. They usually celebrate Jocelyn’s birthday, who was born on December 25th, by taking a trip but this year they are unable to go together so they each go their separate ways. It was originally going to be the  Bah! Humbug cruise but it turned into the 12 Days of Christmas holiday cruise extravaganza. Reese gave up the cruise to be with her fiance and meet her future in-laws but they hit a deer and… This is a wonderful, charming romance, actually two, that is going to make you laugh.  Joss and Reese are two individuals that capture our attention and keep us glued as they go through their Christmas metamorphoses. Both stories are great fun and a true delight to read and enjoy.
