Sure, ’tis the season for peace on earth and good will to all, but for nineteen-year-old Tressa Jayne Turner, this year’s holiday season plays out more like the nightmare before Christmas—Calamity Jayne style. When her grandma’s nemesis, Abigail Winegardner, plans a living nativity, complete with a camel, Tressa’s competitive grandma won’t be outdone. Gammy is determined to create her own living—and molting—“Twelve Days of Christmas” pageant, but her aviary extravaganza is in jeopardy when the stars go missing, turning this holiday into a wild goose chase that’s bound to ruffle more than a few feathers. Will the plucky Tressa track down the missing cast before the curtain rises?
My Thoughts :
To get into the Christmas spirit I picked up a couple more novellas from the Twelve Days of Christmas Series from last year. This one looked like it could of been fun but there isn't really much to be said about this short story.
I didn't like the characters very much and didn't really get the chance to get to know them anyway. The story/plot wasn't very exciting but the Christmas element was amusing and different. I didn't really like the style and even though this is a cozy mystery the mystery was poor and the lead character was Young Adult material. Not really what I was expecting.
While fun, this wasn't my cup of tea and I won't be checking out this author or the series this short story belongs to. A good Christmas read but nothing more than a stocking filler.
