Bestseller Michaels (Hokus Pokus) headlines a quartet of heartwarming Christmas romances. In both Duarte's "A Mulberry Park Christmas" (which shares a setting with Mulberry Park) and Michaels's title tale, childhood sweethearts are reunited despite the pressures of adult life. In "Dear Santa...," Ross (Impulse) strands mystery novelist Holly Berry in a blizzard-swept town, where she meets hunky hotelier Gabe O'Halloran and finds his five-year-old daughter is a determined matchmaker. Burton (I'm Watching You) contributes "Christmas Past," in which widowed homicide sergeant David Ayden helps talented photographer Nicole Piper cope with the legacy of her late, violently abusive husband. It's a close fit, but each short story contains a full-fledged romance from first kiss to happy ending, both satisfying readers and encouraging them to seek out the authors' longer works.
