Adult holiday novels?

I just finished "Blue Christmas" by mary Kay Andrews and Loved it. Can anyone suggest any other Holiday novels? I love books that are funny (no sad ones) and I would love to find some other cute christmas novels (none of the classics-I have read those allready) Thanks!

    If you don't mind period pieces, there are a number of cute Christmas books set in Regency England. For instance:

    -A Christmas Bride by Mary Balogh

    -A Christmas Promise by Mary Balogh

    -A Regency Christmas Carol by Mary Balogh, Elizabeth Fairchild, Carla Kelly & Edith Layton

    -A Regency Christmas by Mary Balogh, Sandra Heath, Jo Beverley, Edith Layton & Laura Matthews

    -A Christmas Courtship by Carola Dunn, Karla Hocker, Joy Reed

    -Merry's Christmas by Mona Gedney

    -A Father for Christmas by Paula Tanner Girard

    -A Husband for Christmas by Paula Tanner Girard

    -Regency Christmas Wishes by Sandra Heath, Emma Jensen, Carla Kelly, Edith Layton and Barbara Metzger

    -Marian's Christmas Wish by Carla Kelly

    -The Christmas Carrolls by Barbara Metzger

    -A Christmas Treasure by Jeanne Savery

    As I recall, a rather nice one was A Magical Christmas by Heather Graham.

    If you enjoy mystery, you might like Frost at Christmas by R.D. Wingfield or Hercule Poirot's Christmas by Agatha Christie.

    John Grisham's Skipping Christmas was fun.

    Some I haven't read yet, but sound interesting, include:

    -The Christmas Train by David Baldacci

    -A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg

    -Visions of Sugar Plums by Janet Evanovich (if you like the Stephanie Plum series)

    -Christmas Lights by Christine Pisera Naman

    -several titles by Anne Perry like A Christmas Secret (etc.)

    -Glad Tidings by Debbie Macomber (and others by her)

    -Holidays on Ice: Stories by David Sedaris

    A few that are more touching than funny - but not sad:

    -Finding Noel by Richard Paul Evans (The Gift was good, but rather sad.)

    -The Christmas Wish by Richard Siddoway

    -The Christmas Bus by Melody Carlson

    -The Christmas Jars by Jason F. Wright

    I'm not sure how many of these will interest you, but I hope it helps.
