    "Bluegrass Brothers Series, not Bluegrass Series"

    I know, right? As of this date, I'm looking at the Audible description of "Secret Santa: A Bluegrass Novella," and is listed as book 2.5 of that series when it is actually "A Bluegrass Brothers Novella" which would put it at about book 5.5 if you started with BG and moved on to BGB. Hellooooo, editors, publishers, anyone? How about considering it all one series instead of 2 since they are all in the same place with common characters who interact with each other? Loss of an overall star for making such a bad decision. OK, so that's why the confusion for the readers and for Audible's data entry peeps who I can't blame because it truly makes no sense. Characters from books 1, 2 and 3 of the Bluegrass Series are in here plus what would seem like spoilers for the next couple of books focused on Paige's brothers, which I am assuming to be the Bluegrass Brothers Series. (sigh) smh

    Aside from someone (who should be fired, or possibly maimed) making the horrible mistake of taking A series of books about a KY town and its inhabitants and breaking it into 2 for no logical reason whatsoever, this is a very cute Christmas tie-in to the series...series-es? Having not experienced any of the BGB series yet, there was a bit of, "Who the heck ARE these people?" I think I will enjoy it more once I have "caught up." Even with the confusion, I found it to be a short, sweet and cute Christmas story and a bit of an epilogue/catch-up session. Not sure how many BGB books there are, so it may be an epilogue for the whole series (I'm going with one series here, people-OK?).

    Eric G. Dove is a fantastic narrator and the reason I gave this series a try in the first place. His female voices are his only minor weakness, in that they are just OK, but hey, he's a guy....a guy with a very sexy guy voice, so forgiveness granted.

    "Fun Christmas Short Story!"

    Loved this short story about the residents of Keeneston at Christmas.
    It was entertaining, lots of fun with some very amusing moments! I just love it when the town gets together! Had some very sweet scenes in that were read beautifully by the narrator too.

    "What? I'm lost... Never was found!"

    I've read most of the stories so far in this series, or so I had thought. I had no idea who most of these people were in this story and I can't believe anyone would find it interesting and fun to drag on through a boring series of women in labor. Waste of time and a credit. Most certainly.

    "Cute Funny Short Story"

    I simply howled out loud during the familiar court cases. As they were revisited in this short little book. Darn wish it could have been longer. But it set's the stage for the next brothers book. I will be looking forward to seeing it in the new books section. Hope everyone gets as big of kick out of this short story as I did.
