Book Review: A Very Raven Christmas by Jennifer Brasington-Crowley

Reviewed: February 18th, 2022
Released: December 18th, 2019
Genre: Contemporary Romance

‘Twas ten days before Christmas,
and all through the house,
Raven Xerces wreaked havoc,
his in-laws both groused.

See what happens when rock legend Raven Xerces spends the holidays with his in-laws in this fun holiday short story. A fun companion to Raven Song and BirdSong, A Very Raven Christmas imagines a future Raven Xerces as he plays husband, father and son-in-law. This fish-out-of-water story is a laugh out loud delight, full of family drama, sweet romance and plenty of havoc you’ve come to expect from lovable, angsty, awkward, antihero Raven Xerces.

Helen’s thoughts: 5/5

A fun companion story to the Raven Song series. A nice quick read full of christmas spirit, which Raven needs plenty of to survive christmas with his in-laws.

Such a fun short read, with laugh out loud moments and a few cringeworthy ones too, as Stanzie and Raven take their kids to stay with her parents for Christmas.

No matter how hard he tries he can’t please Stanzie’s parents who are ultra critical of his appearance and his job. They can’t see what Stanzie likes about him, hopefully if he survives Christmas they might change their minds.

Raven and Stanzie are wonderful characters, I want to know them better so I’m off to find the first book Raven’s Song. You should too!
