    1. This review is based on an eARC I received from Author Chelsea Field. It is an honest and voluntary review and the advanced receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.I have reviewed both books in the Eat, Pray, Die Humorous Mystery series and have thoroughly enjoyed both books. So, when I had an opportunity to read another story from that series I was very excited. This may be a short story but it is humorous and fast paced. A delightful addition to an already charming series.This sto [...]


    2. Fun short story - you'll enjoy it!This story begins after the second book in the series, The Hunger Pains. (If you haven't read the 2 books in this Chelsea Field series, I highly recommend them.) The main characters, Connor and Isobel, work for the secretive company, The Taste Society. Isobel's job is to taste her wealthy client's food for poisons. Connor works as an Investigator, and he tracks down the criminals who are trying to kill their clients.Connor invites Isobel to his family's Christma [...]


    3. It was exactly what I would have expected of their first date or their Christmas!!! Loved it. I will say that I think it is a book for fans of a series more than a standalone. I have such hopes for those two. It carries the wit, suspense, and heart that each book of the series displays. I love this series and heartily recommend it.


    4. Reviewed by Whitney@Shooting Stars ReviewsIzzy and Conner are finally going to get their first date. But it's going to be on Christmas, at his mother's house. She is going to meet his mother, and sister, and she's unsure about a few things. Izzy isn't sure about Conner, as their date continues gets even more unsure about him. This book was cute, short story about Conner and Izzy's first date. It takes off right where book two ends, and now I'm excited for the next book.




    5. A really cute short story!This was a cute short with a quirky ending. Always enjoy reading another book by this author. Love Isobel and Connor. Can't wait for the next book!


    6. I have not read the rest of the series, but I was looking for some holiday-themed books, so I grabbed this one. Obviously not my genreIsobel Avery is an undercover poison taster, and her date, Connor, is in the business, too. With a scheduling conflict cancelling their real first date, Isobel and Conner's first date ends up being Christmas at his folks'! Who does that? When she senses that the cookies she brought (which she thought were a delivered gift from Connor) are poisoned, she goes all ou [...]


    7. What a tantalizing appetizer to the series for a Christmas Fun read!, November 28, 2016This series is fantastic. It keeps you moving page to page and you don't want to put the book down. SOe short Christmas story Taste of Christmas is a must read to keep the fun and mystery coming! Connor and Izzy are so much fun in this story. They are actually going to Christmas dinner at Connor's family's house. How strange for both of them who have no idea how to really date! They are so worldly naive, excep [...]


    8. Without having read the first book in this series it would be unfair for me to give a star rating to this short story. The writing is appropriate for the event described. Connor is somewhat dry and colorless, so this story suits him. I have not read another book featuring a professional poison taster and don't know the relationship involved, other than this is a first date on a holiday and he takes Izzy to meet his mom and sister. An unusual situation all around. The deduction portion of the boo [...]


    9. Just finished Chelsea Field’s Holiday short story, Taste of Christmas. It continues the story with Connor and Izzy. We are introduced to two new characters: Mae, Connor’s mother and Harper, Connor’s sister. The fun begins when Connor and Izzy go to Mae’s for Christmas dinner and Izzy discovers the cookies she contributed to dinner were poisoned!! It’s a good read and left me wanting the story to continue. Anxiously awaiting the next episode in this hilarious series.Pamela S. HopkinsSwa [...]


    10. Halfway between a 7/10: Good solid read, something to get your teeth into & an 8/10: Excellent read, well written, fell right into the fictional world created.It’s not that I didn’t want him to have my back. I loved that about him. It was only that this evening, I wanted him to have my front as well.Sweet little shortie. Well done.


    11. CuteSo I love this series and this was a short little Christmas story but I'm sort of disappointed. I feel like we know nothing about Connor and it's just dragging. I need more insight or discussion between the two because right now, it feels like a one sided relationship with a robot. Hopefully the third book will bring some things to light.


    12. Don't read if you haven't read the other books in this series. You would be coming in in the middle of the story and it is important to get the back story to understand where this story is coming from. This was a wonderful opportunity for the author to introduce 2 new simply characters. I hope the author decides to use them again. I love the titles which shows the author's sense of humor.


    13. Have really enjoyed this series. I enjoyed this short story butI am not a fan of this form of literature so it colors my thoughts. Izzy and Connor on their first date was cute but (by necessity) it was just too abbreviated. And the ending seemed abrupt? That all being said it did help provide some background on Connor. I enjoyed it but left me wanting more!


    14. Isobel doesn't seem to like mistletoe as much since she was poisoned by it. She's a poison detector for the rich. She's fine now and on her way to a holiday gathering. She has ideas, but they definitely don't include any mistletoe. Will she be lucky and meet someone nice or naughty. Lovely romance, light reading for the holidays


    15. Charming short story with a mystery. Christmas dinner with your boyfriend's relatives. What could be worse? Find out in the fun tale. Terrific series and this will have to tide me over until the next book is published. Love Connor's mother! Our delightful taste tester is at it again.


    16. Isobel is meeting Connor's family for Christmas. Enjoyed this very short little morsel. I do wish there was a bit more passion, but maybe the next book - in January 2017! - will show another side of Connor.I thank Chelsea for the ARC!


    17. This definitely was a quick read and I enjoyed the book ; however, if it was made into a full book it would have been a lot better. I definitely will go back and read the first few books as Izzy and Connor's relationship has piqued my interest.


    18. Cookies Can Be DeadlyWhen poison taster Isabol finds cookies on her front steps on Christmas she assumes they're from her boyfriend. She's wrong, they're from an old admirer and they're deadly. More romance than mystery.


    19. Cute This story is just a few pages long but there is a lot of story packed inside. I haven't read the other books in the series but this has definitely piqued my interest.





    20. 1.5 stars.I was hoping that this short would reveal a little bit more about the H, but it didn't. Needless to say, I was disappointed and still not liking the H all that much. I still don't understand why the MCs like each other. Well, maybe the h a little bit. The H has been there for her when it mattered. But he's also been a closed up, judgmental jerk most of the time, insulting her fashion sense and intelligence. It seems like the h is just attracted to the H because he's an exact opposite o [...]


    21. ThankfulI am so thankful that I am reading this series after a few books have come out because they are amazing almost like great sex but then all of a sudden it is done. I am not left unsatisfied by any means but rather pleading 'really, that is where you ended"! As my other reviews in the series have stated- great series, great characters and a great read. Just be prepared to want to read the next book immediately when you finish.


    22. Charming short storyAnother winner! Great Christmas addition to a witty series. Perfect short read, adding to the overall character development or as a stand alone read


    23. Cute, if sillyNot really necessary to get to the next book, but overall still pretty cute. Interesting to build up more background characters.


    24. I love this series, the Eat, Pray, Die Humorous Mysteries! Taste of Christmas is a great addition to it. Author Chelsea Field has combined a unique mystery plot for the series, with a promising love interest for Isobel "Izzy" Avery, the main character. Taste of Christmas (#2.5 in the series, a short story) begins immediately after the ending of Book #2, The Hunger Pains.After a broken date with Connor to go ice skating on Christmas Eve, the next day Izzy and Connor are on their way to meet his f [...]
