This was a pleasant find on Kindle Unlimited. Six spooky stories, all set on Christmas or during the season. They take up familiar tropes in horror so you might find them a bit predictable, but there were genuinely humorous moments and the author clearly loved writing these tales.

I really liked Christmas in the Empty Cabin (I could see some influence from The Shining!), and the story about a popular holiday toy turning into a Gremlin-like creature. The first story in the collection was touching while also being a bit scary, and the story about a young boy trying to help a mysterious girl who is wearing shorts in December was moving.

Short and sweet novella consisting of 6 short spooky stories but perfect for Christmas! From a disturbing festive meal to terror in the toy isle
There wasn’t one story I didn’t enjoy..all were brilliant.
A must read for horror fans at Christmas

 This collection of short stories is a quick, fast paced read. As is the case with most short story collections I enjoyed some more than others; but overall enjoyed the collection as a whole.

I did really enjoy this book and all the short stories in it. But sadly I wished a few of them were longer as they were so gripping and interesting and keep me wanting to hear more that’s my biggest down fall to this. The characters in some of this books were so descriptive and so disturbing and I really liked that for a horror book. Xxx
