    An Enjoyable saga of 3 related Christmas Romances in 1 book

    I really enjoyed this Christmas mini saga by Carla Kelly. "Coming Home for Christmas" is actually three separate mini-stories where each plays off the one before it. The best part is that you did not have to wait for the next release since they were all there in one book. Each story was touching and wonderful on its own and in it's entirety it was a most enjoyable read; but for me the icing on the cake is that they were Christmas stories. The main title of the book is "Coming Home for Christmas" and the first story starts in 1812 Regency times in the middle of the Neapolionic Wars - "A Christmas in Paradise" has British Naval Doctor(Thomas Wilkie) finding himself stranded in a Spanish settlement in San Diego, Alta, California after his ship is captured by the French and taken in captivity there. With several shifts in circumstances this first Christmas romance between Thomas and Laura finally has it's happy ending and them on a Naval ship back to his home to Scotland. The next story takes place in 1855 during the Crimean War - "O Christmas Tree". The widowed daughter of Laura and Thomas from the first story; Lily is one of Florence Nightingale's nurses - and she falls for the shy American hospital administrator Major Trey Wharton. Their holiday romance take place at the very end of the war and just when you think they will go their separate ways...they come to their senses. Lillian had a son from her first marriage and he is our next romantic hero. Will plays the staring role in the final Christmas mini-romance "No Crib for a Bed". Captain Wilkie Warton - son of Lily and adoptive son of Trey - is a post surgeon at Fort Laramie in the Wyoming Territory, with the Third Cavalry. I enjoyed this new set of twists for this Victorian Western tale. Will was headed back east to marry his long time society fiance and was escorting Frannie - the daughter of his hospital steward - back home as a favor. Their simple travel plans get a bit complicated when they are called upon to escort "Nora" a woman who had been kidnapped and held by Indians for several years back to her family. A variety of surprising bumps and twists along the way finally allow Will and Frannie to realize how they feel about one an other and turns into a lasting romance and happy conclusion to this family romance. I thoroughly enjoyed following along with these three tales of Christmas romances that covered different time periods and parts of the world. Best of all each story was a quick read so that if you don't have a lot of time, these fit the bill.
