REVIEW: TWAS THE NIGHT BY SANDRA HILL, TRISH JENSEN AND KATE HOLMES



Kindle Edition
Published October 18th 2010 by Bell Bridge Books
Originally Published October, 2001

What do a Blue Angels pilot, a bounty hunter and an ex-NFL football player have in common? The three bad-boy bachelors of Snowdon, Maine have to make it to a friend's Christmas Eve wedding on time or die trying! They're willing to risk anything to make that happen-even dashing through the snow in the goofiest bus on Earth, bright red and filled with a bunch of merry, meddling senior citizens known as the Santa Brigade. All too soon, these men will have met their matches in three special women. Come along for the ride, as three unforgettable couples discover who's naughty and nice while serving up holiday cheer with the Santa Brigade.




So I just realized why looking up the stats for this book, that it is nearly 9 years old! With the kindle version just having been released, I thought that this book was more recent - but honestly, you couldn't even tell. I think that's definitely the sign of a great author (or authors in this case); when you're book can be so old, and yet still be enjoyable today.

If you read the synopsis of this book, you might think...'Pass!'. That was my first thought as well. It sounded confusing and weird and I wasn't sure what to expect. But if you all know me - which by now you should! - you know that I LOVE CHRISTMAS! And I will read pretty much anything that has to do with Christmas, lol.

So let me tell you about this book: I thought it was extremely sweet, romantic, cheesy, funny, adorable and full of Christmas cheer. The three male characters were all charming, good-looking and with an entirely different story to tell. By the end of the book, you would've been happy dating either one of them! The three female characters were independent (which I love), intelligent, and most of the time, they were the ones actually saving the day!

But beyond the main characters, I think the true stars of this novel were all the side characters. All the senior citizens on the Santa Brigade bus, especially their driver "Bad-Ass Betty". I loved how these people became your friends and you wanted to join the brigade just to get to ride around with them!

This book was filled with lots of the Christmas Spirit - generosity, caring, love and family. It was a fun, quick read that I think even nine years later, anyone would be lucky to pick up :)

5 out of 5 stars.

  1. Book sounds like a keeper. I love Sandra Hill's books she's awesome. She's so funny I am always cracking up with her stories. I haven't read books by the other 2 authors...yet. I added this book to my book wish list.
