Disclaimer: I received an early edition of this book for an honest review!!

As Good As Dead is about two young girls that are friends through college. However after certain circumstances the friendship drifts apart. Later on the two get “reunited” in a sense and the story goes back and forth from them in college to them present day. I gave this book 3/5 stars because there were some things I thoroughly enjoyed, but as well some that I did not enjoy. For the most part I liked this book but did not love it. I enjoyed how this book had a wide vocabulary. It has been awhile since I have picked up a book  that uses as large of a vocabulary as this one. I was very comfortable with the pace of this book. I also semi enjoyed the plot of the story. It was a friendship that you could relate to. However I did not like most of the characters such as Charlotte’s parents. Also I did not like the abortion part of this story. Another aspect I did not like was that it felt like there was no resolution at the end. One more small thing that bothered me was that I couldn’t understand how the title related to the book. Overall I could see myself recommending this book to young teenagers in high school and college.

Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses is about a young single mom who has an ordinary life until the elderly lady she takes care of recommends her to do a decorating job for her grandson. Her life is changed after she accepts this job. The author captivates you with the winter and Christmas setting. If any book is gonna get you out of a reading slump it will be this one. It reminds you that life doesnt always have to be so serious and that the most important part is that you do what you love and surround yourself with those you love. This book was magnificent!! I enjoyed every last bit of this book! First let me just say that I am a huge sucker for Christmas/winter settings. So I obviously loved that detail.  I loved that the main character Abbey is a single mom. All the characters in this book were well written and you become very attached to them as they develop. This is a book everyone should read during the colder seasons cause it has a way of keeping you warm and filled with love on the inside. I will try my best to buy a copy on the release day, and as should you cause its the best book I have read in months!!
