The book was very good, but a little puzzling to me. If it had been advertised as a continuing series of short stories, I would not be puzzled, but as it is each chapter seems to be a self-contained vignette and it flows from one chapter to the next. It is not my style of reading because it seems to be for the reader who has a short attention span - read a chapter and go do other things and come back to the book later to read another chapter and so on. Not like a James Patterson book which screams for you to keep reading! If you have limited time to read, then this book is made for you. I am not sure if this is typical of all the books Ms. Collier has written; I can only say anything about this one.

I have no idea how this book got published. I hate to say anything negative because it was clearly written by a very nice grandmother and would probably be quite pleasant to read to a child. However, it would be a huge mistake to let a child read this by him or herself as it is some of the worst writing I've read in a long time with only the most primitive sense of punctuation and grammar. A few examples:

1) Statement by the host of the inn on Christmas morning: "This is exactly what I wanted, every since I went to that Ducks Unlimited meeting duck decoys have interested me. Thanks honey."

2) "It was considered a very important job, as the streets needed light for the people and the horses and buggy's' to travel." (I cannot fathom actually writing the word " buggy's' "- 2 apostrophes? Was there no editor who even perused this book?)

3)"Don't look at us Art, why would we do that and how could anyone know what creamer Gina was going to use let alone get anywhere near her purse."

Sometimes the author will put a comma where it belongs as in "Mrs. Fields, I left you something in my room." However, most of the time we find sentences such as "Do you write Mr. Fleming?" There is no consistency, and again it appears that no editor even got near this book.

Beyond those problems, the book, published by something called "Mystery and Suspense Press," has absolutely no mystery or suspense. It's a series of quaint vignettes. I kept thinking the book must have been written for children because it was so incredibly tame, naive and one-dimensional. It clearly was not written for children, however, as suddenly you'll hit on a vignette wherein a diary entry suggests that a husband may or may not be trying to kill his wife or another in which a woman discovers she's pregnant with a home pregnancy test.

I finished the book for one reason only, which is that I love to read books at Christmas time in which we find fireplace fires, Christmas cookies, snowy days, egg nog, etc. The book certainly does not stint on those images. It's chocked full of them and too many Christmas books miss the boat when it comes to providing atmosphere. But what I had hoped to find was some mystery. I like Christmas mysteries. This is not a mystery. As I said before, only buy this book if your intention is to read it aloud to a child on a cozy Christmas afternoon (although you might skip the home pregnancy test).

I apologize to the writer. It's clear her intentions were the best. I imagine she is a lovely grandmother who does bake Christmas cookies and who gives her grandchildren a lovely haven. I also hate writing negative reviews, but this book was just mystifying to me.

I'm having trouble trying to figure out what is wrong with this book. Is it a mystery? If so it's really bad. Is it written for elementary students? If so they would have flung it out the window after the first 3 pages.
It's just a 'novella' with a lot of little vignettes which a 5 year old can see coming. Amazon has a lot of nerve to charge $9.95 for this.

This is a very thin book, only 72 pages and sounds very amateurish. There is no real overall plot - each short chapter has a "mystery" that is resolved in the chapter (like an old note that is found hidden in a staircase saying a body is buried in the basement many years ago - it turns out to be a pet dog; the skeleton of a severed foot is found in a Xmas tree lot - it turns out to be a man who had an accident many years ago that cut off his foot). The writing is awful. Yet, somehow, during the holiday season, it makes a nice read - just don't expect much...

A series of innocuous vignettes that take place at the Cliffhanger Inn. Each story has a tiny conflict followed by a tiny resolution with characters that are two dimensional and too nice. Literary style is pleasant but mundane. Recommended for readers who are satisfied with nice, easy to read, unchallenging material.

I read this book when it first came out - I love Christmas stories. This weekend I read it again. Cliffhanger Inn is pictured as a place where I would like to spend the holidays. Little mysteries have popped up, and although I had read it before, I didn't remember the solutions. There doesn't seem to be one big mystery to be solved by the end of the story, but it is a good read in front of the fireplace - if I had one.

I liked this book a lot! I started it last night, sitting by the fire, and would have finished it but life got in the way :) I wanted a quick read that was cozy and sweet. Sometimes you just need a short little book to take your mind off the world and think about pure and simple things during Christmas. This book did it for me! I liked all of the chapters, but my favorites were Bah, Humbug!, My Grandmother's Attic, and The Stocking Was Hung.
There's a lot of cozy in this one so grab a cuppa your favorite tea and settle down for a charming read. Set up as individual stories, take them one at a time or dive in for the whole lot. You'll find interesting characters,a quaint setting, and a holiday scenario that will set your mood for the season. Enjoy!
