Amusing and Heart Warming
On Strike For Christmas by Sheila Roberts is another delightful offering, and just perfect for a heart warming read on an Autumn evening.
As Thanksgiving ends and Christmas approaches, Joy and Laura, fed up with doing all the preparations and parties single handed, decide to go on strike for Christmas. If Christmas is to happen, then their husbands will be organising it. The local paper hears of the strike, and soon many more women have joined it. The men of the town of Holly are going to find out just how much hard work goes into making Christmas appear to run smoothly.
On Strike For Christmas was a highly amusing read, as men all over town launched from one disaster to another, with very humorous results. It was a compulsive read that had me smiling throughout.
Nine Lives of Christmas by Sheila Roberts is a perfectly delightful Christmas feel good novel. The story is told from three different viewpoints – his, hers and the cat! As a crazy cat lady myself, I found it highly entertaining to ‘hear’ the voice of Ambrose the cat!
Ambrose is on his ninth life when he is rescued from a vicious dog by fireman Zach. Ambrose decides to move in with Zach, and then sets about match making. Zach doesn’t want a cat, but Ambrose is persistent.
Merilee works at a local pet store and volunteers in an animal shelter. As soon as Ambrose sees Merilee, he decides that she is the one for Zach. Can Ambrose achieve his aim?
