Then Comes Winter is a collection of Holiday short stories influenced by the works of Jane Austen. As an avid reader and lover of all things romance, I was excited to get my hands on this anthology. It is perfect for this time of year, when you might only have a few minutes to read. I started with debut author Denise Stout’s "Christmas Miracle on Oyster Bay." "Christmas Miracle on Oyster Bay" is a story about an independent bookstore owner Lissa and law professor Simon. Lissa needs a Christmas miracle to keep her bookstore open. The bookstore is located in the house she inherited from her grandparents, and her grandfather ran a newsstand out of it when she was growing up. Lissa is feeling the crunch from a big box store that moved into the neighborhood. She also lives in part of the house. Lissa has known Simon for a bit through mutual friends but thinks he is stuffy and standoffish. Simon enlists Lissa’s help as a caterer and hostess for a party he needs to throw for colleagues. Lissa agrees, and they use part of the bookstore for the party. I enjoyed getting to know Lissa and Simon as they got to know each other. Does Lissa get her miracle? You will have to read for yourself to find out! This was a wonderful story, perfect for a chilly night read and sparking some holiday spirit. I am looking forward to reading more stories in this collection and from Denise Stout.

Then Comes Winter is a collection of original short stories written by authors Lory Lilian, Linda Gonschior, Suzan Lauder, Beau North & Brooke West, Sophia Rose, Natalie Richards, Anngela Schroeder, Melanie Stanford, Denise Stout, Erin Lopen, and Maureen Lee. A few of the authors are new to publication and show to be very capable writers and others are already popular authors of Meryton Press. All the stories included in this anthology are influenced by the charm of winter. Some of them are contemporary and some are Regency; some are a nod to Jane Austen. All the stories are a lively combination of styles. This book is an uplifting treat of wintertime experiences. I really enjoyed the stories. I loved the way each author showed their writing style. I liked the surprises, fun and love in each of the stories. You can read it in winter and embrace the season, or read it in the summer to remember the feelings of a frosty winter's evening.
