A VVivacious Advent Calendar Review Day 28: Teddy Bears (2016 Advent Calendar – Bah Humbug) by Brandon Witt

Rating:  5 Stars out of 5
teddy-bearsJames Olsen is a handsome bear of a man who visits the bathhouse where Brian works.
Brian is a geeky chubby guy who hates Christmas and can’t wait for it to be over. But an accidental meeting with James at a toy store might just have Brian believing in Christmas Miracles.
I don’t know why I ever doubted that this story would not be good, I mean it is written by Brandon Witt and for those of you who don’t know the author should seriously consider checking his books out.
This story was 49 pages long (according to my reader), in which the effective length of the story after you factor in the blurb, author’s info, publication details and the cover comes out to be 40 pages and in just 40 pages the author had me so caught up in the story that I was crying by the end of it which was so surprising for me. I only cry in stories that really touch me and it is so rare for a short story to do that for me because of the limitation of their length but looks like I have been seriously underestimating short stories.
I loved this story because it caught me so off guard there were just so many little things in this story that were just so unique. I am actually finding it very hard to describe this book with my limited vocabulary.
This story is lovely, it transcends the holiday spirit and it leaves you with a warm feeling inside. I really don’t want to say anything more for fear of spoilers but know this, this story was awesome.
Cover Art by L. C. Chase. I loved the cover which is a depiction of an actual scene in this story and yes, this book does feature Teddy Bear hamsters.
