Publisher's summary

The best thing about the holiday season is spending time with family. At the same time, sometimes the worst thing about the holiday season is spending time with family. The stories in this collection touch on that and more as Mandy Nichols, Jeff Resnick, and Judi Straub struggle through what's supposed to be the joyous season. One family contemplates murder; another wants to end what they see as a bad relationship, while another can only see their loved one for what she can do for them. Sound familiar? Happy Holidays? puts the Christmas fun into dysfunction!

Short Story Collection

Any additional comments?

This is a collection of holiday short stories. The stories have a common theme-family more accurately dysfunctional family. In “We’re So Sorry, Uncle Albert”, Mandy Nichols and family find out that the very miserly Uncle Albert, that has forever been mooching off the whole family, is actually a very wealthy man. Learning how wealthy Uncle Albert causes a lot of drama in the family.“Bah! Humbug”, a Jeff Resnick story where Jeff and Maggie spend a very awkward Christmas with Maggie’s family. Will this holiday be the end of Jeff and Maggie? In “Blue Christmas”, Judi Straub is feeling a little depressed since her family has their own plans and she will be all alone. Judi wins a vacation for Christmas which she hopes will be the begin of a less lonely life.

A great way to escape holiday stress is reading these enjoyable short stories. It’s not around the holiday time, that’s okay you can still enjoy these stories. Author Lorraine Bartlett is a natural storyteller and Narrator Steven Barnett does a wonderful job bringing the stories to life.
