A Christmas to Remember by Denise Devine Katie McGowan is heading home to spend Christmas with her family. She didn't expect to get snowed in at Lakewood Resort, the place that held so many memories for her. Her husband was killed on one of the snowmobile trails there 2 years ago and she hadn't been back since. Ryan Scott is running from his family and Christmas. His parents are getting a divorce and he has decided to not spend time with his sister and her family. He is at Lakewood Resort to take his snowmobile out on the trails, but with the blizzard he'll have to wait. Katie and Ryan rescue an abandoned pup while snowed in at the Resort. Katie has to work through her loss. Ryan has to realize what is important to him. In the midst of this, will they find each other? This was a great story! An Angel for Christmas by Raine English Alexa Stevens was married, had a house, had a job, had a daughter, had enough money to get by, and then everything went wrong. Her husband killed himself, she was laid off, she didn't know how she was going to make the rent, and didn't have enough money to buy groceries. How could she ever trust anyone? Her husband hadn't told her the truth about their circumstances and her boss had moved his company out of state, laying off employees. Didn't he know what he'd done and the effect it would have on the laid off employees? Alexa's daughter, 8 year old Cara, doesn't understand what is going on. Alexa and her friend Sally talk about the owner of the company that laid them off and speculate what they would do if they could talk to the owner. Blake Collins' wife left him for the pool boy after she spoiled their 10 year old daughter Britney to the point no one could do anything with her. Nannies had come and gone. None would stay. Can he convince Alexa to come work for him as his nanny to Britney? Can Alexa teach Blake that not all women are like his ex-wife? I loved this story and the characters Alexa and Blake. A wonderfully sweet Christmas romance! The Cowboy's Christmas Bride by Aileen Fish Tara Goodwin planned to spend Christmas break with her best friend Cheyenne. She gets stuck in the snow and Dylan Frost rescues her. They have to spend the night in his cabin because he has a cow giving birth. Tara is an almost-graduate of vet school and helps with the delivery. I loved their bantering back and forth. Dylan's mother left him and his brothers when he was little and he hasn't forgotten nor forgiven her. He figures if his mother could leave him how could anyone else love him. Tara is going to take over her grandpa's vet clinic when she graduates to pay him back for her schooling. They are hundreds of miles apart. How can they continue a relationship if they will never see each other? Will Dylan's heart open to love? Will they be able to make it work being so far apart? This sweet romance is a great story! Her independence and sense of family draws Dylan, but will it also keep them apart? I received a free copy of these three stories in exchange for an honest review.

Christmas Papa by Mona Risk tells the story of a single mother of twins who finds herself attracted to the eternal bachelor. He loves the ladies and leaves them. Children and Christmas fill me with happiness. Monica and Michael are such special characters. I wanted them together. Michael made me smile when he interacted with the boys, Louis and Chris. I fell in love with him when he wanted to make these children his. The Holiday Babies Series is one that I enjoy. Gingerbread Kisses by Beate Boeker is set in a luxury hotel in the Dolomite Alps in Italy. Carol is a baker who is there for her sister's wedding. Her gift to the bride and groom is gingerbread name tags for the reception. As she's baking her treats, she meets Tom who is the hotel manager and a sweet romance develops between them. Can it be more than a Christmas interlude? This story was short and sweet. I liked that the characters had such an immediate connection. The road to love had a few bumps but it made the end so much sweeter. What's more perfect than finding true love at Christmas. Boycotting Christmas by Melinda Curtis tickled my funny bone. I laughed out loud at this romantic comedy that had a touch of fairy tale magic. Nick Santolli wants to give his niece the Perfect Christmas. Her parents have been deployed and he's taking care of the five year old. He needs all the help that he can get. Luckily Joy Encastle is there. She is the essence of holiday spirit. Except this year. She's boycotting the holiday. The attraction between them is amazing. They need to forget the past and embrace the future. It takes a magical Mrs. Claus in the form of the love advice lady to get them together. Melinda Curtis has written a marvelous romance that had me laughing, sighing and smiling. The dialogue sparkles and the secondary characters are compelling, but Joy and Nick stole my heart. These are just a few of the stories in this collection. I enjoyed them all. Sweet Christmas Kisses is a special holiday treat.

CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS WITH LOVE I have read a three of the stories so far in this wonderful box set. Each of them adds a unique spin on the Christmas holiday and romance and new beginnings. Some have angst, some heartache, and pain, but most of all, a reminder that there is love and happiness to be found. This is a wonderful box set. Christmas Wedding (Serendipity, Indiana - Book Three) by Magdalena Scott SURROUNDED BY FAMILY--LONGSTANDING AND NEWFOUND I enjoyed this second chance romance story that takes place in Serendipity, Indiana where Jim Standish and Melissa Singer are planning their wedding. High school sweethearts who broke up but reconnected twenty years later. At time,s I would have liked to knock both of their heads together for their stubbornness when it came to the wedding and where to live. The plot had me both laughing and crying with this captivating tale. I found the dialog entertaining with a delightful cast of characters. This story is part of a Serendipity, Indiana Book series but reads well as a standalone. Finding You at Christmas (Shellwater Key Tales) by Kristin Wallace OPERATION: GET A LIFE This is a beautiful and emotional Christmas love story. Caleb Montgomery comes to the rescue of Janie Worthy life a knight in shining armor. Janie is more a damsel in distress than she realizes, but he sees the ivory tower she has locked herself in.

God always does have a master plan in place, it's not an accident. This story is part of Shellwater Keys Tales series but reads well as a standalone.
