These three stories were interesting and kept me pulled in. I liked the suspense and that these Christmas time stories were not the usual romance and fluff.. I liked the first story the best.. but all of these stories were intriguing from the very first page! The suspense and intrigue continued throughout the whole book in keeping me wondering in each story who was trying to get rid of the heroine. I was gifted a copy and my review is voluntary..
