Three short stories that follow the lives of Rachel Lewis, self-confessed Christmas Grump,  and Lillian Coleman, the woman who makes her believe in the magic of Christmas again.


"The Christmas Grump": For Rachel Lewis, a security guard at the mall, the Christmas holiday season is one big headache. She wants nothing to do with the celebration of love, peace, and family harmony. Her disenchantment with the holiday slowly begins to change when she meets seven-year-old Tyler and his mother.

"Kissing Ms. Santa Claus": Rachel is counting the days until she and Lillian celebrate their first Christmas together as a couple. She is filled with longing for only one thing to make her holiday complete: a long-term commitment from Lillian. She sets out to find the perfect gift that will reflect her love and devotion.

"The Christmas Elf": After her home state finally recognizes same-sex marriages, Rachel wants to propose to Lillian. Rachel is confident she has it all covered. She plans to take a second job as the mall Santa Claus to earn the money for Lillian’s ring. But luck is not on her side, so Rachel finds herself with bells on her toes, playing a Christmas Elf.


Note: "The Christmas Grump" and "Kissing Ms. Santa Claus" have been previously published in the anthology Gingerbread Hearts – Six Lesbian Christmas Stories (Ylva Verlag, Nov 2012)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You'll laugh and cry... You’ll laugh and cry so keep a box of tissues nearby when you read these three short stories. They’re easily read in a few hours and will likely ignite the spirit of the season in you as you go. The synopsis from the publisher (above) gives you an idea of what each story is about but beyond the romance and comedy in each story, the chaos and heart of the holidays is brought to life in a way that’s accurate, often hilarious and heartwarming. It’s also a good introduction to author Jae’s earlier works; suffice it so say that her writing only gets better with every work she publishes (and she began writing at a high level). I know I’m going to enjoy her work when I see her name on the cover and recommend this short collection for a holiday boost, and the rest of her books for any time of the year.
