This Christmas by Jane Green, Jennifer Coburn, Liz Ireland

The holidays can sometimes make or break a relationship. Now, in this trio of warm, witty, insightful stories, three very different women face questions of the heart that could change all their Christmases to come. . .

When her husband's job takes him away from home indefinitely, a restless suburban wife and mother must confront Christmas alone—and decide whether she's better off that way. . .. A newlywed is haunted by thoughts of her husband's first wife—and comes up with an unusual plan to cure herself in time for Christmas. . .. Longing to fit into her family's picture perfect holiday celebration, a young woman finally brings home the perfect boyfriend—only to find that nothing is as she expected.

Infused with the hopes and dreams of the season, these entertaining and exquisitely written stories by New York Times bestselling author Jane Green, Jennifer Coburn, and Liz Ireland will inspire your Christmas spirit, and stay with you all year long.

I picked this book up because it seemed like a nice read for the holidays. The first book by Jane Green was very enjoyable and refreshing. I was disappointed when the story ended and it left me wanting more. The second book I skipped over because of the weird story line. I gave it a chance by reading the first couple pages but I wasn't interested in a story about getting her husbands ex-wife a new husband. The third book was okay but very predictable. I was hoping for a Christmas story but the story took place in the year her family wasn't celebrating Christmas. I will definitely be looking into reading more of Jane Green's books.

This is a book of three short novels plus previews of another novel by each author. I loved the first book by Jane Green. It was very enjoyable and nice Christmas read. The second one was, frankly, weird. It was largely the irrational ravings of a someone clearly in need of therapy. The story line was too far fetched and I just kept wondering when it was going to be over. The last one wasn't the 2nd best of the three. However, the ending was pretty predictable. Some of the characters were not well developed at all - unrealistic. I didn't want it to be over, but it wasn't as good as the first one. It's a good way to be introduced to these authors and overall a quick holiday read. But, it only left me wanting more Jane Green.

She rarely remembers the happy moments that they shared as she believes their two children who she loves have nuked their relationship. At the same time Eddie finds his self-esteem on empty. Deciding to separate, this looks like the last Christmas that Sarah and Eddie will remain married barring a Yuletide miracle. --- ¿The Second Wife of Reilly¿ by Jennifer Coburn. When Prudence went to Ann Arbor for a reunion she had a weekend fling with her college lover and ended her marriage to Reilly, but feeling guilty as her husband did nothing wrong, she searches for a new spouse for him. Six months later second wife Sarah decides to insure wacky Prudence stays out of their lives by turning the tables and searching for a husband for the first wife. --- ¿Mistletoe and Holly¿ by Liz Ireland. Holly loves spending Christmas with her family, but afterward feels lonely as her two sisters and brother always have someone with them before, during, and after. This year Holly takes Jason with her, but as the days go by she has doubts as he fits in very nicely with her picture perfect family while she does not and even under the mistletoe her mind wanders back to work. --- These are three well written comedic family dramas that are fun frolics for sub-genre readers however any vacation time could have been the setting as the Christmas holiday gala is not essential to these three fine novellas. --- Harriet Klausner
