the Season of Promises
filled with fun and forever after.
The Littlest Angel by Vicki Batman
Two people. One ornament for the tree.
Can a twosome find common ground and discover the true meaning of Christmas?
5 stars. Vicki Batman is a master of short fiction. She writes succinctly, yet pulls you in with fully-drawn characters you care about, whether the story is three, fifty, or two-hundred pages. You know these people, and you feel what they feel.
While I read the entire anthology, the other stories were okay, but marred by the usual editing problems that drive me crazy. Ms. Batman also apparently either paid attention in English class or owns a copy of the Chicago Manual of Style, because her tenses match, she uses the right homonyms, and simply writes well. So whether or not you read the rest of the Season of Promises Holiday Box Set, I highly recommend “The Littlest Angel." - Roses & Thorns Reviews
5 stars. Great collection! Enjoyed the variety of stories. I always read Vicki Batman's work. She's one of my favorites! -author Diane Kelly
5 stars. The Littlest Angel really tugged at my heartstrings. I loved the idea of a man and a woman both wanting the same rare Christmas ornament for sentimental reasons. The banter between them kept me reading. It was hard to choose who should have the littlest angel, because they are both such likeable characters. I won't say more.
5 stars. The Littlest Angel – Vicki Batman: Love the story line about tree topper! A nice warm Christmas tale! Ms. Batman’s writing was so good that I was drooling when they were eating the yummy sounding cookies. I could totally identify with disliking the male lead but could also understand the female lead’s attraction to him. Ms. Batman handled complicated characters very deftly in this short story framework. I really enjoyed this!
5 stars. These short stories are a great representation of some of what romance has to offer. Sweet, each in their own way, I enjoyed this collection - from the handbag battle, to the English matriarch’s complicated second chance at love, to the agoraphobia who overcomes her fears.
