Joss Snow has had enough of Christmas pageantry, so for the last few years, she and her best friend Reese Pendergrass have skipped the holiday together. But this year, Reese is newly engaged and spending a traditional Christmas with her future in-laws. Joss, left to go on her Bah! Humbug cruise alone, ends up on a 12 Days of Christmas cruise instead and Reese's trip seems to take every bad turn possible. Will these two friends survive the holiday?

Technically this is written as 2 separate novellas, "Once Upon a Jingle Bell" and "It Came Upon a Midnight Deer," each following one of the two friends through their holidays. The story is mostly cohesive, though; it simply tells the 2 main characters' escapades one at a time. Each chapter starts with a line from a "12 Days of Christmas" parody invoking Murphy's Law, which I liked. And Murphy's Law comes in heavily, especially in the 2nd story. While normally the "everything that can go wrong will go wrong" trope annoys me, I enjoyed the book and even liked the 2nd novella more than the first.

One great thing about this book is that, even though it's a Christmas book, it's not as sappy as Christmas books so often are. On the other hand, it's billed as a Christian book, but the Christian content is incredibly light. And there's a lot of emphasis on physical looks in both relationships. If you're not looking for a faith-filled story, though, this is a nice light-on-the-syrup Christmas read with some romance and fun.

Good SWEET book...like a Nora Roberts where it is predictable love story but at the same time I was drawn in by the main character Emma. Good beach read.

This is the 2nd book in the Emma Rae Creation series. It was a nice read. It was on Mt TBR for awhile and glad I finally read it this year. Patiently waiting for the next in the series.
