Merry Christmas Stories...Review

About the book:
Merry Christmas Stories is a collection of 25 Christmas tales that emphasize the value of Christmas love and laughter. These short stories will make you laugh, smile and just feel good about this magical time of year. These delightful stories, written in a variety of genres, all reflect Christmas love, hope and charity.

A firm believer in the power and importance of laughter, Spalsbury employs humor in his books and hopes the stories will provide some Christmas cheer for all who read them. The stories represent a variety of genres ranging from the traditional to romance to science fiction.

There are stories of adventure along with humor, unexpected surprises, romance and poignant moments. These are feel-good stories, to uplift your spirit and to leave you with a smile or a warm feeling. Just the way Christmas should feel.

Merry Christmas Stories is a delightful compilation of short Christmas vignettes.  It can easily be read in a couple of sittings or you can just sit down and read one or two at a time. These stories span a broad range of genres and a variety of settings.  Most are about every day people who have remarkable experiences and learn valuable lessons.  I loved the story of Tiny and the Bear.  Such a sweet tale and one that I wish was longer.  And Nick Tracer?  What a great character.  I loved his story and I'd love to see Jeff write a book just about and his detective adventures.

I love Christmas and I love Christmas stories.  I have collected Christmas books for years and I love bringing them out and re-reading my favorite stories year after year.  Merry Christmas Stories is a book that will become one of those that I re-read each year.
