Ten Modern Christmas Reads for Under 99p
We have been searching for some great Christmas reads and found some amazing bargains, please let us know what you think.
A Christmas to Remember, Matt Shaw
Despite having taken the children and leaving him – his wife was coming over, with the kids, for Christmas Day. Not because she wanted to but, rather, a vague attempt of keeping things ‘normal’ for the children. What she doesn’t know, though, is that her new boyfriend is there too….. in pieces. Some of him wrapped up, ready for her to open, under the Christmas Tree and another, sizeable, chunk of him slowly cooking in the oven – ready to be dished up with a good portion of roast potatoes.
Who knows – she may never discover the shocking truth of what her husband’s done either and, more importantly, what he wants to do; kill her and cut her head off so he can stick it on top of the Christmas Tree in place of the usual Angel…
YOU decide the outcome. YOU choose the story YOU want to read.
