Overview

Once Upon A Christmas by Lisa Plumley

This Christmas, chill out and cuddle up with these enchanting holiday stories...

"Funny, tender, and occasionally wacky, this trio of short romantic comedies gets the holidays off to a lively start as three heroines find love in unexpected ways. Plumley's lighthearted sense of fun, sassy dialog, and likable characters make for an appealing holiday collection." —Library Journal

Mistletoe and Holly
Accountant Holly Aldridge scrupulously plans everything in her life—until her boyfriend gets spontaneous by dumping her right before Thanksgiving. Still, Holly's sure he'll reconsider, given a little time...and a reason to be jealous. That reason, all six-feet-plus of him, is her new roommate, Sam McKenzie. If Sam has his way, Holly will have a sizzling new romance by Christmastime...

Christmas Honeymoon
Some women would consider it the perfect Christmas gift: an all-expenses-paid Vegas honeymoon. But Stacy Ames isn't some women. Actually, she's supposed to be posing as her cousin Janie. Too bad Stacy's faux hubby turns out to be her infuriatingly sexy ex, Dylan. Fortunately, mistletoe and free champagne have a way of turning "too bad" into very, very good...

A Baby for Christmas
Kahlúa, coffee, and sympathy—it's amazing the trouble they can get a girl into. Chloe Carmichal was only trying to help her best pal (and secret crush), Nick, drown his sorrows. She never expected they'd end up having a hot-and-heavy tryst that Nick's hangover would make him forget, but that Chloe will always remember...since she'll have his baby as a Christmas memento...

PLEASE NOTE: These stories are contemporary romances featuring Christmas themes and holiday ambiance. They are not Christian-themed or Inspirational.

What I enjoyed about this novel.... I enjoyed all three of this author Christmas contemporary stories that were quite different from each other. They were three well written anthologies having their own story line with entertainment, humor, personality and some interesting characters that will keep your interest all the way till the end offering some with fun, humorous, heart warming love and romance. These three stories are a good collection for the Christmas holiday season that will offer a roller-coaster ride to some happiness and sweetness in all that the holiday brings.

This book was good. I was looking for a light read before Christmas and I found a few in this collection. The stories remind me of Hallmark Christmas movies. Therefore, if you like those I would pick this up.
