While these short stories did contain some funny and touching moments they were largely predicatable and beyond belief.

I mean you meet someone, fall in love, fall out, get married all within the space of week not likely. ( )

A Dixie Christmas is comprised of two short romantic novellas written against a Christmas themed backdrop. They are quick, fun stories to read when you want to get a bit of the holiday spirit but are short on time.

The first story is called Blue Christmas and takes place in Memphis when a Boston businessman comes to town to check out a hotel he's recently inherited from his now deceased father. Complete with an Elvis themed nativity scene and a crazy family, this story is light hearted and funny.

The second story called Jinx Christmas takes place in Louisiana. Here, a famous NASCAR ® driver takes hold of the wheel of his heart and risks it all to let his ex-wife know he is still in love with her. Note: as a huge Nascar ® fan, I loved the premise of this story.

Again, let me just say that these stories are short. Being of novella length, the progression of the storyline often seems rushed. Taking that into consideration, I would have liked a bit more as far as the story went but still enjoyed them both for what they were.

If you are a reader who requires a backstory and decent amount of detail, this book might not be for you. ( )

When I was looking for holiday stories, romances of one kind or another were the bulk of what I found. The book cover for A Dixie Christmas by bestselling author Sandra Hill was so whimsical that I couldn’t resist. This is a collection of two funny, sexy Southern Christmas short stories that seem more like novellas. During a season that has us all scurrying around like crazy, it’s nice to pick up something you know is going to be quick enough to read when you need a break from baking cookies and wrapping presents.

Two short stories in one book. Their is a lot of laughter,sex and Elvis in the first story.
Clayton Jessup III just inheritance a hotel themed around Elvis in Memphis, Tennasee. Clayton lives and works back east and can't believe this part he inherited. The rooms were all decorated around Elvis movies. His suite was the Roustabout. included cotton cany machine,hotdogs ect.
Clayton was planning on selling the hotel and the empty lot next door. When he heard animals he looked out the window and saw a living nativity scene on his property included sheep,donkey and real baby.
Annie and her brothers set up the living nativity to earn money they needed for their farm. Their parents died a few years ago and they were trying to keep the farm going. They needed a new barn roof, money for vet school and her brother just had a baby left for him.
Clayton went to tell them to get off his property but fell and hurt his head and foot. Then Clayton had a bad reaction to medicines so Annie took him home from farm. They were polar oppisites. Clayton lived in a house with 8 bathrooms,cook,gardner east coast. Annie with her brothers and grandmother and the new baby on farm with one bathroom.
I enjoyed the story but not the sex scenes.
The second story is about Lance Caslow a NASCAR star trying to win his wife back after their divorce 5 years ago. He did not want a divorce and fought it. He was friends with Brenda since they were 5. had one little girl age 7 who wanted her parents back too.
Brenda still loved Lance but did not trust him with all the pictures of women draped over him. Also after they seperated Lance got drunk and slept with someone else.
Lance asked for help from others and ended up preforming on stage to try and show Brenda how much he still loved her.
They were fast reads. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review by Netgalley. ( )
