Henry hates Christmas shopping. Hates it with a passion. But here he is, downtown shopping two days before Christmas. It would almost be bearable except for the jerk in the trapper hat and plaid scarf who keeps turning up like a bad penny, apparently with no other goal in life than to make Henry’s already crappy day even crappier. Henry doesn’t know what’s up with the guy, but Henry wishes he’d just go away. That doesn’t seem to be in the cards, however. In a day full of surprises, the biggest is yet to come.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Advent Calendar package “Sleigh Ride”.

My View:


Henry hates Christmas shopping and all the commercialism that goes along with it. But when Henry is invited to his sisters Christmas party he is told his appearance is not up for debate and off to the stores he goes. What starts as a typical shopping around the holidays experience explodes into so much more. From Christmas crowds with whining kids and sneaky old ladies. To dogs, lost presents, mystery and mayhem. Just as Henry thinks his day can’t get any worse there’s a man or Jackass Trapper Hat as Henry nicknames him that is determined to ruin what little Christmas spirit Henry has left. Little does Henry know that Jackass Trapper Hat could be just the thing that makes this Christmas the best one yet. This is a quick read and I wish there were more. A definite must read for the holidays.
