Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Such a great fast paced read. This novel was written by 5 different authors about 5 different couples in one town, during one holiday season, all at the same time. This was a read that definitely made my day. Although each couples story was short I didn't feel like I was missing out, these were some really great short stories. These 5 romances managed to encompass almost all romance sub genres. Suspense, firefighter, paranormal, the "grouch" and an overall HEA. I fell for all of the characters but I have to say that the last one was my favorite. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who is feeling a little blue about the holidays, needs to believe in good people, or wants the thoughts about love to be rekindled. P.S. the last story does have some sex.
Ruth A. Casie ~ I’ll Be Home for Christmas I loved this story and if I had to pick a favorite story from this anthology, this would be it. As an author, myself, I could relate to Beth’s feelings on a bad review and the crossroads she appears to be facing. Her witty inner dialogue made me laugh a few times. The romance was sweet yet toe-curling. The conflict becomes clear and Beth’s reaction was honest. I was sad when it was over. I want more from this couple. Lita Harris ~ Winter Wonderland Olivia has returned to Havenport to help her aunt and uncle with their bookstore. She’s questioning her decision to continue with her college education and she’s hoping her aunt and uncle can help her break the news to her mum. While working at the bookstore, she meets a mysterious stranger named Max. A sweet new adult romance reminded me of my college days. I loved the attraction between Olivia and Max while the suspense of who Max’s parents were appealed to my romantic suspense side. I hope Lita plans on continue their story. Emma Kaye ~ Baby, It’s Cold Outside Ooh, a time travel romance! Jane “accidentally” casts a spell to bring her true love to her and the one man she can’t stop thinking about appears in her bathroom. Adam thinks he’s in Heaven and she’s a beautiful angel sent to escort him through the pearly gates. Jane loves Adam and her mission is to prove to him how living in the modern age with her is worth giving up his past life and dreams. I loved the blending of modern times and history, along with a few dashes of magick. The story was over before I knew it and I wanted more! Nicole S. Patrick ~ White Christmas Who doesn’t love a romantic suspense story where there’s a strong heroine, an even stronger ex-marine and some lovable dogs? This is exactly what you’ll get in this story. Savannah is a Chicago prosecutor, on leave, after a horrible attack and seeking shelter in Havenport. Through a chance meeting while walking a dog, she drools over super sexy ex-marine Mac. Sparks fly between the two faster than you can say, “sit”. But someone sends a deadly message to Savannah and she must decide whether to tell Mac the truth or keep running. A brilliant romantic suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. Mac gets the prize for sexiest hero in this anthology. Julie Rowe ~ Merry Christmas, Baby Mattie is getting over a horrible divorce and happens to run into her high school crush, Charlie. One look at Charlie’s scars and she realizes his heart is scarred more than his skin. Charlie tries his best to keep her at arms’ length, no matter how much her Marilyn Monroe melts his insides. Can they overcome their shattered past and get a second chance at love? Another fantastic story from Julie and this time, she delves into second-chance love. I love second-chance love, mostly because that’s my story with my husband. Everyone deserves a chance at love. Filled with emotion and heart, this holiday romance will renew your spirit. If you love holiday romance, this a must-read anthology! Each story has a different voice, yet they meld together in perfect harmony. I want to live in Havenport. Favorite Character: While I loved every couple, my favorite couple in this anthology has to be Beth Alexander and her handsome Prince Charming. Beth is a best-selling author who’s still reeling from a horrible review and the last place she wants to be is at a book signing with her nemesis. I loved her sense of humor
I have just started this box-set and am totally loving it. These are fast pace reads that leave nothing out. For short stories the authors give you all the details you need with no unanswered questions. These are authors I haven't read before which for me was a delightful surprise how they fill the pages and make you fall in love with the characters. They bring you stories you will love and can relate to. Julie Rowe ~ Merry Christmas, Baby Is a very touching read whoever said you can't come home is wrong. Sometimes the one you left behind is the one you are meant to be with. This is a story about misunderstandings of how you believed things to be way back when. It is a shocker when these two find out they were on the same wave length all along missing out on many years they might have been happy in. Charles is a delightful hunk of a man who has went through some trying times. He just needs the right girl to show him what love is all about. Mattie is walking away from a bad marriage from a man who put her down. These two must overcome a few issues before they can find their HEA. The author puts a lot into a little time, she gives you a wonderful delightful read that pulls at your heartstrings. She fills the page with HOT passion just when you need your pages to burn up. Giving it just the right amount to make this one outstanding hot read. You are so going to totally love and enjoy this box-set
