Festive Book Review: Merry Chicklit-an Anthology: Christmas Lights By Sarah Hitchcock

Another post inspired by the festive season.

Blurb: In the spirit of giving, six chick-lit authors "present" a charming collection of seasonal shorts sure to inspire holiday cheer-plus love and hope throughout the year, with all proceeds donated to Rocking the Road for a Cure! Featured authors & stories include:

Sarah Hitchcock In "The Christmas Lights," one competition pits two families against each other...who will win this war?

This is amazing! Incredibly short, cute, story!

It's Christmas, all the neighbors are competing for the best Lights. Anabel Walker loves it during this time of the year, she loves it when her family is together—the holidays do that, make everyone happy. But what with this neighborhood war? What with all this competition? What with the Walker family being an enemy to the Taylor's? What with Anabel keeping a secret? What with the most romantic wedding proposal?

Sarah Hitchcock wowed me! Everything about this book was a surprise! I love surprises and nothing like a good surprise during the holidays —★

Romance? This book runneth over! —★★ I actually cooed (which I am ashamed I do a lot lately).

Suspense? Who knew short stories were really abundant in those? The whole references to wars got me squinting. Very strange anachronism, yes. Who would think there to be a war on Christmas? —★★★

I loved the ending. The joke was really on me! I just kept shaking my head in disbelief at how beautiful this was —★★★★

Now, about my other stars (there are many). I think I'd share it to all the other stuff I've mentioned.

My rating: FIVE STARS.

I will be looking forward to a lot of Sarah Hitchcock! If her short stories are this good, I guess I'd have plenty to gush about for the long ones.

Christmas Lights is part of Merry Chicklit's anthology of six sassy shorts available on Amazon.

I recommend anyone looking for a great gasp! Anyone looking for something delightfully short.

Rush for it. Remember, the cause, breast cancer. Please donate for a good cause this festive season! There's nothing annoying than a male sexist doctor screaming, "Off with her boobs!" I purchased this to help the cause, you should too.

Reviewing all six sassy shorts in Merry Chicklit. Stay tuned for Francine Lasala's.
