This ebook of three short stories based on Christmas Carols is a young hip way of looking at old Christmas songs. She has an interesting take on the Christmas stories that she has decided to base her short stories on. This is a short, fun read. ( )

Three French Hens: A Christmas Collection contains 3 short stories.
1. All I Want For Christmas Are My Two Fang Teeth;
A story about a vampire stalking an elderly woman. It was cute and quirky. I liked the twist ending & the way things turned around in the story. Somewhat unexpected. Although I am a little tired of anyone writing a vampire story these days referencing Twilight.
2. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing;
This story is about a singing competition, resembling the X Factor. I would have liked a little more originality. The twist at the end was cool, but I think most people may see whats coming.
3. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town;
In this one a young lady is home alone on Christmas Eve. When she goes out for a smoke, something odd takes place. I didn't care for this story at all. I thought the plot was idiotic, and the ending was just nonsense. Sorry it just didn't appeal to me.

All in all, I give this collection a 2. It may have been a 3 or 3 1/2 if not for that last story. ( )

Ahhh Christmas, a time of sweetness, good will toward men, and all that stuff. Well, if that's what you want from a Christmas story, GO AWAY!! You won't find it here!

This trio of stories looks at the darker side of things. First up is a vampire that gets caught in a situation he'd rather not be in. Then there's a game show with some unusual contestants. Finally, a woman with an ability most of us don't have.

All the stories are short, so they make for a quick read. If you enjoy quirky stories and twist endings, you'll definitely enjoy these. You're sure to get a chuckle from how things turn out. ( )

I won this book from Librarything in exchange for an honest review.

There's a lot of spunk to this little collection of stories. My favorite by far was the first story. Since they are short and have a twist to each one, I won't go into too much detail, but the first had the best twist. The other two were interesting but were less satisfying.

It was overall a fun read! ( )

Three short stories reflecting on the dark side of Christmas. Whilst I enjoyed these I didn't really engage with them. It was good to read something different to what I normally read and was grateful to receive a copy of this through the Member giveaway scheme. ( )
