From vampires to outer space, Season of Love is a great anthology that explores love in the Christmas season. Suspense in Mistletoe Fangs by Susan Blexrude is a great starting point when vampires celebrate. The Office Party by Bill Haywood slows down with a holiday office party turned bazaar by the building’s resident ghost. A Special Christmas Gift by Kate Hofman brings things to modern and not so fanciful times and finally in the end we head to a new world in Peace on New Earth by Miriam Newman where a new agreement for life must be made and despite their differences, two people find love.
I loved the first and last stories of the anthology immensely. I’d give them five diamonds a piece. Since it’s an anthology though, I’ll average the four stories and give the overall book four diamonds. It’s a great holiday read to get in the mood for the season and even the slower stories are well written and enjoyable. Anyone feeling the need for a little paranormal holiday boost will love Season of Love.
