Merry and Bright

Short Story in Home For the Holidays Anthology

By Ann Gregory


Contemporary Romance

D'Vee Devoh inadvertently insults Alex Lurkey when they first meet. Thankfully, his sense of humor is just as quirky as hers, and they seamlessly fall into a pattern of play on words that quickly turns into an invitation to a date.

Merry and Bright was another very short, this time six pages, couple introduction by Ann Gregory. I wish she had focused more on the character development and less on the humor - the jokes would have been better set in a longer story.

Home For the Holidays is a short anthology with nine stories that is a mere 125 pages. We are introduced to six new authors, some of whom I hope to see in print again soon. This anthology includes: Christmas at Coventry Arcade by Becke Martin, The Holly and the Ivey by Sandy Pennington, Speaking the Language by Ann Gregory, Triple Trouble on Christmas Eve by Becke Martin, Merry and Bight by Ann Gregory, Silver and Gold by Becke Martin, The Last Christmas Visit by Stacy McKitrick, Time's Holiday by Jennette Marie Powell, and No More Resolutions by Dakota James
