Christmas treats round up from Clare London

Where's Santa?Where’s Santa? by Clare London

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This one made me laugh quite a bit. A hot encounter with the store Santa in the stock room and a lot of interruptions as Danny tries to find a box of this year’s must have toys.

Part of the 2008 Dreamspinner Christmas anthology, it’s another quick read from Clare London featuring two young lads who weren’t expecting to find a potential boyfriend at work.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Another delightful Dreamspinner anthology Christmas entry from Clare London. This one made me smile a lot.

The idea of a vampire, werewolf and grumpy sprite working as Santa’s emergency helpers on Christmas Eve just worked really well for me. There was humour and a nice sarky relationship between vamp Irvine and his team.

Benny, the guy who isn’t supposed to be at the house they’re delivering to, and who’s definitely not supposed to see them, proved to be a perfect Christmas gift for our somewhat lonely vamp.

Nowhere To HideNowhere To Hide by Clare London

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5*

This is a festive romance with a difference. It also has a bit of a surreal, almost out of body ghostly element to it during which Dan realises he’s slowly sinking into his own head.

There’s a gentle building up of tension, to the point where I was really rooting for Aaron and his unwavering support of Dan’s depression even as you could see he was hurt by what was happening.

Thankfully, it being a festive read, there’s an upturn on the horizon and Dan’s realisation that when he’s with Aaron, his black dog is easier to keep at bay.

I loved the way these two connected and were able to discuss their feelings once Dan had his epiphany.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5*

This is my favourite of all the festive treats I’ve read from Clare London. It’s frothy, funny, light and sweet with a premise which works really well to set the romance on.

Both characters are solidly developed and have their own unique voice and I loved that we got to see inside both their heads as their predicament got stranger and stranger.

There’s a lovely epilogue to round this one out and I’d love to read more about this pair as they navigate their way through the retail season!
