Really Good

The first story How the Glitch Saved Christmas by Stacy Gail is all about two detectives one modified, a cyborg and one who refuses to be modified and how they must solve a baffling crime at Christmas in which someone is putting toys into homes and deal with the all conusming attraction between them at the same time. Story two Galileo's Holiday by Sasha Summers is the story of an ice miner who finds herself stranded on Galileo and is resuced by a stranger who ignites a fire in her she's never experienced before. The third story Winter Fusion by Anna Hackett is about two hardheaded negotiators who find themselves targeted by an asssassin and must work together to survive and in doing so discover a passion neither expected or are quite sure how to deal with. Three Christmas themed science fiction stories full of action and lots of passion that are well worth a listen.

I loved this anthology.

These may be novellas but by no means felt short. There is romance, adventure, and a lot of feels, especially the first story. I snotted all over the place. They all had their own appeal, but that glitch is one that will stay with me for some time. Definitely worth a credit. I listened to this through Audible Escape.

BOOK REVIEW.....
Winter Fusion, by Anna Hackett -----
Loved it. Fun, romantic story,

How the Glitch Saved Christmas, by Stacy Gail ----
Liked it. The characters could have used a bit more depth ti them but over all I liked it.

Galileo's Holiday, by Sasha Summers ---
This one I'm sorry to say but I just found it boring. The characters felt off and not really believable.

NARRATOR REVIEW.......
The narrators did a good job with their stories.
