    Really enjoyed Jane Green's story

    I picked this book up because it seemed like a nice read for the holidays. The first book by Jane Green was very enjoyable and refreshing. I was disappointed when the story ended and it left me wanting more. The second book I skipped over because of the weird story line. I gave it a chance by reading the first couple pages but I wasn't interested in a story about getting her husbands ex-wife a new husband. The third book was okay but very predictable. I was hoping for a Christmas story but the story took place in the year her family wasn't celebrating Christmas. I will definitely be looking into reading more of Jane Green's books.

    First book was good. Other two just OK

    This is a book of three short novels plus previews of another novel by each author. I loved the first book by Jane Green. It was very enjoyable and nice Christmas read. The second one was, frankly, weird. It was largely the irrational ravings of a someone clearly in need of therapy. The story line was too far fetched and I just kept wondering when it was going to be over. The last one wasn't the 2nd best of the three. However, the ending was pretty predictable. Some of the characters were not well developed at all - unrealistic. I didn't want it to be over, but it wasn't as good as the first one. It's a good way to be introduced to these authors and overall a quick holiday read. But, it only left me wanting more Jane Green.

When Prudence went to Ann Arbor for a reunion she had a weekend fling with her college lover and ended her marriage to Reilly, but feeling guilty as her husband did nothing wrong, she searches for a new spouse for him. Six months later second wife Sarah decides to insure wacky Prudence stays out of their lives by turning the tables and searching for a husband for the first wife. --- ¿Mistletoe and Holly¿ by Liz Ireland. Holly loves spending Christmas with her family, but afterward feels lonely as her two sisters and brother always have someone with them before, during, and after. This year Holly takes Jason with her, but as the days go by she has doubts as he fits in very nicely with her picture perfect family while she does not and even under the mistletoe her mind wanders back to work. --- These are three well written comedic family dramas that are fun frolics for sub-genre readers however any vacation time could have been the setting as the Christmas holiday gala is not essential to these three fine novellas. --- Harriet Klausner
