My Review:

Please note: available in ebook format only.

A wonderful collection of Christmas novellas from a powerhouse group of writers. Each story delivers the kind of soul-satisfying read we are accustomed to getting from a full length novel.

"Hope for Christmas" by Mary Connealy :  A real treat for Connealy fans as we get to fast forward several generations in the Harden family. Love how widespread Silas and Belle's progeny is. A tongue-in-cheek read with the thrill of action, villains and lots of humour.

 “Her Christmas Cowboy” by Audra Harders : Infuriatingly captivating. The first scene had me spitting nails. Talk about grabbing - and keeping - a reader's attention! Harders delivers a an emotional tale of forgiveness and new beginnings. A perfect theme for a Christmas read.

"Longing for a Miracle" by Ruth Logan Herne : Keep a box of Kleenex close to your side while read this one. Herne doesn't pull any punches -- no surprise there. Raw, gritty and sublimely hope-filled.

"A Heart Full of Hope" by Sandra Leesmith : I love how Leesmith infuses her stories with the essence of setting. Her descriptive words create pictures that carried me away to Spain. A sweet and gentle love story that explores the true meaning of commitment.

“I’ll be Home for Christmas” by Tina Radcliffe  : A quirky and upbeat love story full of complications and no shortage of angst. Impeccable pacing kept me breathlessly racing for the conclusion, but when I got there I was devastated that the story was over so soon!

"One Perfect Gift" by Missy Tippens  : A beautiful love story with a Cinderella twist. Tippens captures the hope and magic of Christmas in this touching tribute to what matters most. The kind of story that warms you from the inside out.
