The Christmas Brides: A McKettrick Christmas\A Creed Country Christmas by Linda Lael Miller

Celebrate the holidays with these heartwarming family classics in one keepsake collection from New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller

A McKettrick Christmas

Lizzie McKettrick is on a homebound train with a Christmas Eve surprise for her family—a special young man, Whitley Carson. He might seem a little too interested in the McKettrick money, but Lizzie's certain Whitley cares for her deep down. But fate has a surprise for Lizzie—Dr. Morgan Shane. When their train is stranded by a massive avalanche on Christmas Eve the handsome doctor takes charge—with Lizzie by his side. Time's running out for the passengers. But with faith, hard work and some unexpected help, it just might be a joyous McKettrick family Christmas after all….

A Creed Country Christmas

In the Montana wilderness of 1910, Lincoln Creed is up against more than rustlers, wolves and winter storms. His young daughter, Gracie, has needs beyond the beans and bacon he can barely cook. The widowed rancher must find Gracie a suitable governess who won't set her sights on him. Disowned for her refusal to marry, the young schoolteacher Juliana Mitchell seems like a perfect fit in the Creed home. As she gets to know Lincoln and Gracie, Juliana suddenly doesn't feel so strongly against marriage after all. In the season of miracles, Providence just might find a way to bring these souls together in a wonderful Christmas blessing.

This book started out a bit slow and ponderous, however, it wound up being a great read. It could still use some fine-tuning but was enjoyable. Having been stuck on a train during a blizzard (not a train-wreck, mind you) the claustrophobia and anxiety described was realistic. It has a bit of hokey-ness to it, but worth the money.

I must enjoy it because I read it every winter season

These two Christmas novellas both feature action and drama on the frontier. I haven't read any of the McKettrick or Creed books, so this introduced me to many of the characters in the series. I'll definitely want to check out more of Linda Lael Miller's books! In A McKettrick Christmas, Lizzie McKettrick and a group of passengers get trapped on a train when an avalanche nearly sweeps them down the mountainside. She's on her way home for Christmas, and she knows that her family will come for her, but will they be in time? She thought she knew exactly what kind of man she wanted to marry, but when Dr. Morgan Shane takes charge in the crisis, she begins to wonder if she's been wrong about her current beau. A little Christmas magic also makes this a satisfying story for Christmas or any time. In A Creed Country Christmas, Juliana Mitchell is at her wits end about what to do with the four Indian children left in her care after the government Indian school closed down. Disinherited by her brother for refusing to marry, she gets no help from him. Lincoln Creed has had no luck placing advertisements for a governess or housekeeper to help care for his daughter. He's even desperate enough to marry somebody, as long as it's just a marriage of convenience. Lincoln thinks he can help out Juliana and she might just agree to stay and care for Gracie. Snowed in at Lincoln's ranch, Juliana thinks this could work out, but what happens if she actually fall in love with him? I enjoyed the secondary stories and the fact that there weren't any loose ends, so this is good as a stand-alone story.

Each story has a fascinating way of showing you something different. The only confusing part was that they each are a separate book all their own so buying the Christmas Brides is like reading something you already read in a different book. Need to change the title of this book.

Again the books she has written about the McKettricks and the Creeds are just fascinating. I have most of the books she has written and I just can't put them down. I love the 1800's in the west. I have quiet a collection going. I love the way she portrays the characters and goes into detail about of area the story is written about. When she does follow up books on any brothers or sisters, each one is exciting. Her writting reminds me of Dorothy Garlock. I have all of Ms. Garlocks books and I read both collections over and over. Ms Miller books are a joy to read. Love them!
