Publisher's Summary

Two magnolias-and-mistletoe-inspired holiday stories from the best-selling author of more than 30 romantic, humorous novels.

Laughter and love combine in Sandra Hill's "Blue Christmas" - with a touch of Elvis magic. Wealthy Wall Street businessman Clayton Jessup III has only one reason for arriving in Memphis a few days before Christmas - to sell off his inheritance, an embarrassingly kitschy hotel named The Blue Suede Suites. His feelings for the Land of Elvis are dark: his long-dead Memphis mother abandoned him and his dad when Clay was a baby, and now Clay wants nothing to do with a southern legacy that couldn't be more different from his sophisticated big-city life.

But then he steps in trouble - literally - when he confronts the bizarre group of Elvis impersonators who've set up a living Nativity scene on his property. One slip of a wingtip in some sheep poop lands Clay in the care of gorgeous Annie Fallon, whose big-haired Elvis-girlfriend get-up can't hide her wholesome, sexy appeal.

Annie and her brothers have set up the Nativity scene to earn some badly needed money for their struggling dairy farm. The last thing she needs is an angry Yankee with a concussion and a come-hither smile...

In "Jinx Christmas", sexy NASCAR star Lance Caslow makes a last-ditch effort to win back his ex-wife Brenda. Five years ago, his reckless pursuit of racetrack fame tore them apart and broke Brenda's heart. Now Lance shows up in Louisiana determined to make things right this Christmas, not just for himself and Brenda, but for their young daughter, Patti.

He's got his work cut out for him, and desperate measures are needed. Lance will do anything to prove he's worthy of Brenda's trust again - even join the Cajun Christmas show starring a raucous Cajun family whose menfolk dance for charity events in little more than a smile....

Terrible Narration

Couldn’t get past the 2nd chapter. I think it was the narrators attempt at farm animal noises? I’d prefer to read this story, I think it’d be good, but definitely cannot and will not continue it via audible.

scrooge meets his match

A sweet holiday novella that is well written and overall fun to read / listen. I loved the opposites and the southern-isms. I live in the south and there were several in this read that I'd never heard of - and they always make me smile if not full out laugh! A fast paced romance read for sure! It also includes a bonus read which I also enjoyed - again well written / read with plenty of humor and a splash of steam. Both will give you a heart warming feeling just right for the Christmas season! This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

2 stories in 1

Sandra Hill is one of my top 25 favorite authors. Both Blue Christmas and Jinx Christmas are humorous and fun reads, that leaves me wanting more. The narration brings you into the stories. This audiobook was given to me for free at my request from the publisher or author or narrator and I provided this unbiased voluntary review.

The perfect blend of spicy and sweet..............

A Dixie Christmas contains two novella length stories, and they are both the perfect treat for the holiday season. I enjoyed both books immensely, but I think the first was my favorite because I alternated between tears of hilarity, tears of frustration and tears of the awwwwwwwwwwww variety! In Blue Christmas, uptight, Scrooge-like Clay learns to open his heart in true Elvis inspired ways when he meets Memphis farmer Annie and her zany family. Of course, they are performing a live Nativity Scene as Elvis impersonators, so you can only imagine how much fun you will have listening to this story. As with all Sandra Hill books, the story has plenty of spice and steam in the love department, but it has just as much sweet and tenderness between all the characters in the book. The second story is no different as two ex's try to find their way back to each other while attempting to survive the matchmaking magic of Tante Lulu from Hill's Cajun series. For fans of that series, I enjoyed revisiting some of the previous couples, but you don't need to read that series in order to enjoy the fun of Jinx Christmas. Both stories are a little unrealistic, but I prefer no reality in my holiday romances. If you just want to temporarily forget your holiday stress and fall in love with some truly entertaining characters, A Dixie Christmas is a great choice. Lee Ann Howlett's narration is excellent. She has a light, almost bouncy voice that adds to the humor in the book. Her southern accent is pronounced but gentle, so she enhances the overall carefree spirit of the book. This is my first exposure to her narration, but it won't be my last. I received a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for this honest review.

Sultry & quirky

This little book was perfect to get me into the mood for the holidays. The characters were enchanting and I loved the Cajun setting. The story was quirky and put a big Christmas smile on my face. In both novellas I could really feel the chemistry between the two characters. Also, each story had a very cute setup. I had a lot of fun reading this audiobook and finished the book in just two days. The narrator did a great job with the accents and I really enjoyed the way she brought the characters to life with her performance. If you are looking for something unique to spice up your holiday season, I recommend these fun holiday novellas. Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Two Southern Christmas Stories

First story of a young man becoming his father, walking in his footsteps...he inherited a Memphis Elvis hotel. A Wall Street type, he is all one and Scrooge like...angry regarding a mother he believes abandoned him and his father...until he meets her. A sweet and fun family of secondary characters...culminating one Christmas Eve. The second story are of a couple who were friends since 5, married after high school, he becomes a race car driver, she has a child and he forgets once he’s on the circuit to behave...so she divorces him. 5 years later he wants he back as the only woman he’s ever loved. I never liked him..have no time for someone who would have been in his 30s and says he was stupid to cheat whether together or not but still loved her. So didn’t care for the second story..sleeping around before you meet your forever is one thing, after just isn’t. I received a free audiobook for an honest and voluntary review.

Eeh.

I listened to the audio version of this book. This just wasn't a very good book and I thought the narration was just as bad as the story. I listened to the whole thing, but couldn't wait for it to be over.

A little too goofy for me

This is a little too goofy; I like goofy but this was a bit too much. The grumpy leading man fell too quickly for the leading lady and then it was pretty predictable. The narration was enjoyable. The second story was a tad better without lingering. I received a free copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review.

A bit too kitchy

I so wanted to like these two short Christmas stories. I respect Ms. Hill, and wanted to lose myself in some holiday fun, but found myself grimacing more than laughing. The second story was better than the first, but still missed the mark in my opinion. I received a free copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review.

Cute

Each story was unique and so cute. Hilarity ensues throughout the entire audiobook. Love this author and enjoyed some fun love stories. Quick and sweet. The narrator did a good job with each story!
