Christmas Mysteries contains 25 mystery excerpts from Open Road Media books. All of the mysteries have something to do with the Christmas season. I found that the excerpts that made me mad when they ended, were probably books that I would want to check out. There were 4 in the mix. Some excerpts were really small and I didn’t feel like I got a real feel for the story. There are a lot of different themes throughout the books too – murder, etc but all have the common theme of Christmas throughout. I guess now i have to track down these 4 books to add to my reading list! (Although I don’t think I’ll have time to finish them before Christmas!)
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
