A fabulous collection of Christmas stories about finding love in New York at Christmas. A member of a group of long time girlfriends is featured in each book. Each is unique on it's own and a story perfect for each character. I enjoyed the characters in the books and fell in love with New York while I read each one. May favorite was the last story. It wrapped everything up and was the perfect ending for the stories.

This Christmas While I love reunion romances, I'm generally not keen on ones where one of the partners have gone on to marry or have a long term sexual relationship with someone else while they are apart. In this story, top Ice Hockey athlete Jake leaves Bree to return to his ex-fiancée who claimed to be pregnant. The marriage doesn't last as the child wasn't his but Jake never goes back to find out what happened to Bree. This stopped me giving this otherwise wonderful story five stars. Now, ten years later, he's back in New York and discovers Charlie is the nine year old daughter of Bree and is a terrific Ice Hockey player. Coincidence? Not likely. He's mad that she never told him but Bree is mad too because he never asked. While not really heavy on the angst, this is an emotional read because we get to see how hurt both Bree and Jake were by what happened ten years ago. And in the midst is the adorable Charlie who has her own battles and dreams for the future. There is a good supporting cast of characters including Bree's family and also her BFFs who grew up with her and supported her through everything. Overall a lovely read and a good introduction to the series. I'm reading them a little out of order because the first list didn't have them numbered. All I Want for Christmas I was really looking forward to this story, about Cassie and her Irish singer Sean. It's been seven years and she has put the memory of her first love behind her and concentrated on her academic career. Yup, Cassie is a professor, hanging with all those literary types at the university. And Sean, Singer, bartender. You could almost see the story from here. Anyhows, Cassie bumps into Sean and he's all like, lets catch up and she's like, you broke my heart you jerk. You even more sexy jerk than I remember...but still a jerk...so no...well maybe we could talk... Sean is pretty straight forward. He left for what he thought were good reasons but now he's back and Cassie is still the only one he wants. But convincing Cassie, who is all uptight and cynical (your fault...jerk) is going to be the job of a lifetime. And we still have that thing of her, academic, him, blue collar. This plays out quite nicely and they do a lot of talking though somehow they don't talk about the thing that was the key issue back then...because reasons. Only thing that kind of spoiled it for me was the way we got too much info about what they were doing sexually in those seven years. I don't like to know that stuff in detail. Sure seven years is a long time but it could have been skimmed a little for old fashioned readers like me who prefer to close their eyes to reality. The Light in the Window This is a reunion romance of a sort. Jade was best friends with nerdy Ben until suddenly she froze him out in a humiliating episode in the school cafeteria somewhere about the onset of puberty. They were neighbours and had a lot in common until she decided to go all girly to fit in. Now Jade is home for Christmas for the first time in years and the first person she runs into is Ben. Not nerdy any more. This month over the holidays is all about changing her life and then she will be gone to the other side of the country. Ben is fresh out of a long term relationship so he's not exactly ideal because Jade doesn't want to be rebound girl. But he's always around and pretty nice and soon that best friend vibe is back. This was a nice hometown romance and while I don't usually like it when the hero hasn't let his sheets cool before meeting the heroine, it worked okay in this case. Overall an easy read and a nice addition to the series.I think this is the 4th in the Xmas in New York series but I read it 2nd. This is the story of Elena and Lucas. They met briefly 13 years ago in the aftermath of 9/11 where both their mothers died. Lucas gave her a Christmas snowflake ornament which came to represent a lot of the negative emotions Elena carried. Afterwards Elena left New York with her father and Lucas had his own journey. Goodness and Light Now Elena has come back to New York at the request of her older sister Kara who is expecting a baby around Christmas time. Almost the first first person she meets is Lucas who works with her sister for a charity for the families of victims of 9/11. The attraction is instant but Elena is carrying around a lot of anger and resentment and guilt over her mother's death and refuses to allow herself to become involved. This is where the story fell down a little for me. She supposedly received counselling and thirteen years later she was still viewing the events of the day with the eyes of a 13 year old. A selfish, self absorbed teenager who was still hitting out at everyone around her. Lucas made a lot more sense having gone to the depths and come out of them with help to be a person who tries. This had the potential of being a very emotive read with the links to the tragedy of 9/11 but Elena didn't engage me as well as I expected.
