Christmas by Accident | Camron Wright

Mehso-so

This one was just okay. I felt like there was a lot going on in such a short novel so that it was difficult to meaningfully get into any of it. Carter and Abby meet by chance after Abby wrecks her car and Carter is assigned as the insurance adjuster to resolve her claim. Carter gets in trouble at work for embellishing his accident reports to make his boring job more fun. Abby's uncle who raised her is having health issues. ↘️

peanutnine ↘️The characters didn't seem to have much chemistry and the ending was a bit rushed. But there were a few parts that made me chuckle #WinterReadathon @Andrew65 @DieAReader @GHABI4ROSES #WinterCosy @PuddleJumper #HolidayBookBingo @rachelsbrittain #AutumnBingo2022 @Ann_Reads recipe in story 4h

Another great collection of horror tales written in or inspired by events that took place in different coffee shops. Each story includes an introduction about the coffee shop that gave it life.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love when an author is able to take me into a world that is completely foreign and paint it with such clear strokes that I feel like I've been there before. The soul of this story is about someone who desperately wants to figure out who she is and dreams that making it to her goal will finally bring her happiness. And once you get there, is it what you thought it would be? So relatable, despite the fantasy setting.

This was a fun LOL short story companion to the Mead Realm series. Ruby makes a deal with a fox demon to pretend to be his mate for the winter festival in order to break the curse he put on her father. Featuring dirty-talking swords, instalove, and demon shenanigans

PuddleJumper That looks fun! Do you need to read the series or is it a one off? 7h
peanutnine @PuddleJumper there are a few small references to the first book but nothing major so you can totally read it on its own! Although I do recommend, they're also hilarious 7h
PuddleJumper @peanutnine Thanks! They do look fun 6h

Last review for now. If you don't mind an absolutely absurd amount of insta-love, this was a fun little story. Becca, widowed three years, has moved to a new town for a fresh start. She ends up adopting a dog, getting lost in a snowstorm, getting rescued by the local hunky veterinarian, and helping him deliver a baby llama. Absurd? Absolutely. Good, clean, Christmasy fun? Also absolutely. 😂

Andrew65 Fantastic 🎄🎄🎄 12h
peanutnine Sounds fun! 🎄❄️💕 9h
Clare-Dragonfly Well, that sounds so gosh-darn adorable I had to order it for my mom for Christmas. I added the second book in the series for free shipping so I hope it‘s adorable too 😂 now

I actually almost bailed on this one and kind of wish I had. Lauren was literally a bitch for no reason for about a third of this book. She was SO rude, self-absorbed, and obnoxious. Will is DOING YOU A FAVOR and you're treating him like trash because of something he said to you when he was stupid drunk ten years ago that he doesn't even remember??? Wow, you're right, that makes you the mature one who has definitely worked through your issues 🙄 ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) Will is unfailingly polite, kind, and thoughtful, despite the fact that Lauren says mean stuff to him for no reason, purposefully ignores him, whines about literally everything, and starts the entire road trip by announcing she's figured out their itinerary despite the fact that HE is giving HER a ride to be nice, like sorry, you don't get to tell him where to go and when - it's actually HIS trip??? Ugh. Eventually she somewhat snaps ⬇ 13h
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) out of it, but then literally as soon as she sees Will talking to a random chick, Lauren (despite having literally no idea what they're saying) immediately does the whole “he hasn't really changed! He's still a player!“ routine where she goes and sulks in her room and then goes back to being a spoiled baby for the entire next day despite the fact that Will DID NOT DO ANYTHING WRONG (btw they aren't dating! He's allowed to talk to other ⬇ (edited) 13h
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) women even if you ARE dating!) and HE HAS NO IDEA WHY YOU ARE MAD. Super mature, Lauren. 🙄 One more thing really burned me, spoiler below. All in all, I kept thinking this one was getting better, but then Lauren would do something else to act like a petulant child that sent me right back to being ticked off at her. Will deserves much better! 13h

TheAromaofBooks Turns out the reason Lauren is mad at Will is because ten years ago when they were both in college, Will got totally trashed at a party and 100% sober Lauren gave him a ride home. She's always had a huge crush on him. He drunkenly kisses her and Lauren makes out with him for a while, commenting along the lines of “it was her fantasies come true“. The next day, Will doesn't remember it so Laurent is heartbroken. But I just kept seeing this ⬇ 13h
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) scenario with the gender roles reversed. Imagine a totally sober Will making out with a super-drunk Lauren because “it was his wildest fantasy for years“. Ugh. I just thought it was weird and a little creepy and of course Lauren tells Will about it and makes HIM feel like the horrible guilty person when SHE was the one taking advantage of him! Gross, and genuinely an unacceptable double-standard. 13h
Andrew65 Well done on getting through it. 🎄🎄🎄 12h
peanutnine Amazing review! This is on my TBR but probably won't make it a priority after reading your thoughts lol 💖 9h
TheAromaofBooks @peanutnine - In fairness, this has over a 4* average on GR and a lot of positive reviews, so maybe I'm just a grouch 😂 1h

This is actually the sequel to the tagged book, but isn't in the system. I really liked the characters in this one and it was fun to see the couple/family from the first book again as well. However, the final drama was a little much for me; I get really annoyed when people leave a relationship “because it's the best thing for you“ even though they haven't actually talked with the person to find out what that person thinks the best thing is lol

Andrew65 Great 🎄🎄🎄 12h

If you like your Christmas romances a little bit boring, this one may be for you lol It wasn't a bad read, just slow in spots, especially since we spend most of the book getting the idea of what went down between the main characters in high school, yet the author still felt obligated to give us a “Christmas Past“ section to hash it out in detail. Still, the characters were likable, even if ultimately forgettable. Soft pick.

This was a cute story about a tractor who saves Christmas for a town when a blizzard strands the other vehicles that are helping with the lighting of the town tree. I think I will take this to read to my nephews when I visit!
