It’s the last Saturday in December, which means it’s time for some Saturday Snippets.
It’s not all tinsel and candy canes for Santa’s daughter!
Grumpy, workaholic Santa always favored Tina’s younger brother, grooming him from birth to fill his boots when he retires. There’s just one problem – Nicholas, Jr. hates Christmas. He even writes anti-Christmas songs for his rock band, Black Ice. When their father winds up in the hospital, it falls to Tina to leave college in sunny Florida and temporarily return home to the frozen North Pole to run the family business. Not only does she have to put her classes on hold, she has to leave a new romance with her brother’s bandmate.
It isn’t easy dealing with rowdy reindeer who enjoy karaoke, the ex-boyfriend who broke her heart, her best friend’s flirtation with an elf, a long-distance relationship, and resistance from her father! Yet there’s a bigger problem – Tina likes it. She excels at running the family business. But who will deliver the presents on Christmas Eve? Santa is supposed to be a man, right? Should Tina go back to college and her new love or fight to be the next Santa?
Christmas magic, girl power, and a dash of romance make this a fun story any time of year!
There’s been a ho-ho-homicide in Whistler Village.
When my scheming cousin, Holly, signs me up for an exclusive dating app and I match with Hollywood Heartthrob Gabriel D’Angelo, things couldn’t be better. Until I finally come face to face with him — and he’s dead.
Then Holly is arrested for the crime, but I know she’s innocent, and Gabe’s publicist needs answers, and fast before the press finds out.
Together with Logan, Gabe’s best friend, and former marine, we manage to convince him to hold off the media while we work to free Holly and clear Gabe’s name.
But as we whittle down the suspects will we find the killer, or will the killer find us first?
This is the perfect cozy mystery for fans of light, funny, fast-paced who-dunnits.
A college student reluctantly attends a family chili cookout that turns into a never ending nightmare. A man desperate for job skills uses a brain implant to help him learn, but it malfunctions and leaves him sexually attracted to shadows. A private investigator is hired to discover who keeps befouling the walls of convenience store bathrooms. Two deer engaged in combat find that they are unable to unlock from one another’s antlers after the fight is over. A single mother spends 2020 battling an evil landlord, a fascist neighbor, national political chaos, and a global pandemic. These are the strange stories told by regulars at the local bar on Christmas Eve, stories which each began with a phone call from someone who announced “you don’t know me, but we’re cousins.”
One man’s explanation about why he hasn’t updated his website in about a month. And also an update on the progress of his novel.
Because it obviously makes more sense to talk about the status of his work instead of actually working on it, a humble author gives an update about the work undertaken on another nine chapters of what will certainly become the greatest novel ever written.
