Book 27 & 28 of 31 Christmas Book Reviews!

The Father Christmas Confessions (The Father Christmas Series Book 1) by [Benedict, Emily Ann]
What if Santa Claus isn’t one man? What if he is a secret organization?

Jeremy Ogden has 25 days to accomplish his mission and a list of people whose lives can be changed forever if he makes it to them in time. He just has one big problem…And her name is Virginia.

Virginia Kipyard is the last girl Jeremy wants holding his family’s ancient secret, no matter how many times his mother suggests she’s “the right girl.” But if he wants to save the life of the next man on his list, he might just need her help.

The “season of miracles” is about to take on a whole new meaning, even for Father Christmas.

11/15/2014 Author Note: I took notice of review comments on typos and did another edit. Hopefully they have all been fixed now. Thank you for your help.

My Review:
Genre: Christmas fiction.
My Rating: 4 stars.
Recommendation: 15 up because of romance, and towards the end of the book there is mention of someone killing himself.
My Favorite Character/s: Jeremy, he seemed kind of winey at first, and I don’t blame him! In the end, I loved him and Virginia, they were so cute to read about, and I wish it were longer!
My Verse for Jeremy is 1 John 4:19
We love him, because he first loved us. (King James Version.)
My thoughts: I personally don’t care for the “gifts,” and almost didn’t read the book because of them but that may just be me… This book was awesome … like crazy awesome! (Do you know of any word to use instead of awesome?) It was hilarious, goofy, and was outright wonderfully good humor. I was slightly surprised (enjoyably too) by the ending.
There were some grammar and formatting mistakes that were slightly annoying but not too many.
The Father Christmas Profession (The Father Christmas Series Book 2) by [Benedict, Emily Ann]The business of Santa Claus is about to get a new partner.                                                                                                            Felicity never felt like she belonged in the Ogden family, where every man has the power to changes lives between December 1st and 25th. She certainly never thought she would be the right one to train a new Father Christmas, until a mysterious man shows up at her door with all of the family “gifts” but no idea why or how to use them.                                                                                                                                                                                              She might not want the job, but it is quickly becoming clear that if she doesn’t teach him the art of changing lives fast, lives could be in danger, including her own.                                                    First she just has to convince him there is such a thing as Santa Claus…and that he is one of them.
My Review:
Genre: Christmas fiction.
My Rating: 3 and 1/2 stars.
Recommendation: 15 up because of romance, kidnapping, and mentions of someone being murdered.
My Favorite Character/s: Nathan … Nicky … Felicity … Christina … Jeremy … Um, my favorite character is a tie between Nathan – It was cool to get a look into the POV of an older character because in the first book it was Jeremy and Virigina which was exciting and I liked the differences in both books. – and Nicky – it was a lot of fun reading about him while he learned how to use his “gifts,” and it was hilarious when he kept going crazy!
My Verse for Nathan is Psalm 127
Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
My thoughts: This one was a little more fast-paced than the first, and more POVs and there kept hopping, which made it interesting though it was a little hard to keep the characters apart. At one point I was laughing so hard my younger sister got slightly worried.
