I love Christmas stories. I kept telling my husband "You won't believe what they did" & then I give him a little background & read him the excerpt. He's such a good sport about it, even though he's not really that interested.

With just a bit of tweaking, this could have been a fun little read. Instead, the main character, Camille, is purely annoying. For some reason people like her, rescue her, and she is nasty in all instances. She's missed deadlines to apply for college, doesn't pay her bills, and has no health insurance. She walks into doors, gets fired, and other painful things happen, but she blames them all on other people. Her remarks, when not profane, are simply rude. She is also not averse to shoving a library cart at her friend, and engaging in a fairly violent pillow fight. She is not someone I'd want to know. Even her cat doesn't care for her. Despite this, appealing men of all ages like her, or at least try to. The plot was cute, but with it hinging on Camille, fell flat.

Would maybe recommend this to ackward teens. The main character was portrayed as being just too stupid for my taste. For that reason could not force myself to finish this book.

I was disappointed in this book, bad things kept happening to the girl character and she seemed like a flake.

This is not worth the time to download. Hopefully the author will do better with other efforts. I am sopposed to write 20 words, but there is not much else to say.

I haven't finished it yet. It hasn't really caught my attention. It starts humorous which is good, but it's an odd ball humor. The writing to me isn't very good. It's not the typing of writing that draws me in. It seems like it should be more set for a movie than a novel. I think it would do great as a movie, but already I'm bored with the book. I would only finish it just to see how it ends since at least I've started it.

I thought it was a cute story, I agree with another reviewer that the heroine is totally annoying but I did get past that and enjoyed the story. However, the editing of this book is terrible. There are sentences with words missing, words tranposed and in one instance I felt like I must have missed an entire chapter or two. I would seriously suggest to the author that she have the book edited and re-release it. If you don't this book will never be very successful.

First I'd like to say that I would like to see this author keep writing. I'd also like to see her find an editor because the mistakes drove me crazy--missing words, pronoun gender errors, and the speech patterns? Ugh! But those are the easy fixes. The characterization on the other hand...

**Potential spoilers below**

Camille, the heroine, goes to see Santa on behalf of someone else and gets into a fight with an elf. In front of kids. Because goodness knows, that is what well-adjusted decent people do. Santa is unaffected by this, it being the season and all, and instead of sending her on her way with a security escort, he settles her on his lap and gives her some mystical advice. On her way out of the mall, our darling heroine collides with our hero, Alex, who Camille believes was sent just for her. By the mall Santa.

Camille and Alex end up in the emergency room where they have their first argument. He's a stranger, so of course it's alright for him to pass judgement on how Camille handles her life and her finances. But all is not lost because Alex oozes good guy pheromones that let all the other females in his vicinity know that they can relax and trust in him because he's a Good Guy. The ER nurse who is treating Camille even takes his side in their little argument. Why? I don't know, since he is way. out. of. line.

I'm going with the pheromone theory.

Except it turns out that Camille really can't manage her life and has the emotional maturity of a twelve year old. Even her own grandmother has drawn a line in the sand with her. Through serendipity Camille finds herself at a bakery owned by...wait for it...the mall Santa, who somehow, through, I don't know, elfin magic, is able to see through Camille's thick layers of blech! personality to know that she is really a good person. Except she isn't.

Alex is working for his grandfather, who...wait for it...is the mall Santa and the owner of the bakery where Camille has just popped up out of desperation. It's a Christmas Miracle! And it turns out that Alex is an accountant, which explains why he is qualified and justified for lecturing Camille during a medical crisis.

Add in a best friend who is decidely not friendly--she comes across as a babysitter with a bad and far superior attitude, a shifty cousin who I thought was going to be gay, a foul-tempered elf who works part-time at the bakery with Santa, an unexplained but much remarked falling out between Alex and said shifty cousin, a love connection between Camille's grandma and...oh, go ahead and guess...it's really just the magic of Christmas!

The pieces of a good story are here, but they somehow manage to avoid clicking into place. Camille is entirely unsympathetic. She manages to create most of her problems and fails to learn from them. Alex is vanilla pudding, which is unkind to vanilla pudding. He is out of line and a bit pompous, but he feels entirely within his right to be this way with a stranger/potential love interest. They have lots of "misunderstandings" that are supposed to be hot, but they aren't. It's annoying and we never get to the real problem which is both of these people are terrible people who have issues and bad communication skills!

I read the entire book and I still have no clue why secondary characters kept telling Camille that Alex was such a good guy. But I guess that's okay because I am still clueless as to what all of the male characters find so charming and endearing about Camille. She is rude and mean and utterly un-charming. I don't even know if that's a word, but that's how detestable the character is!

After all of that, I still didn't hate it. I really wish the author had spent more time editing and revising because I feel like a good story is in there somewhere.
