The book consisted of nine novellas written by nine different authors. The first story was a stand alone. The next four stories were connected and even though they were written by four different authors, they did a great job of connecting these stories. The same is true for the last four stories. Although all these stories took place around Christmas, they would be good to read any time of the year. I would definitely recommend this collection.

I think I may have mentioned that a few times this year. I love the time of year and reading books specifically centered around winter and Christmas just makes everything more special. This collection of Christmas novellas is a great way to boost the Christmas spirit. Full of faith, romance, and all things Christmas.
From Wyoming to Washington, you will be swept off your feet as these couples conquer the odds and true love prevails.
Snuggle up in your favorite reading spot with a blanket and mug of your favorite steaming beverage (if you have a fireplace, even better), and get lost in the mountains of the west.

SusanPMichiganAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Sweet Christmas romances!November 7, 2016SusanPMichiganAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I adore these multiple story books! They are perfect to go through on a weekend or a different story each evening. This one has the Christmas theme throughout. I am highlighting the first one:
A trusting Heart
Carrie is a wonderful author that sucks you into her stories! This one is no exception. Annika is answering a mail-order bride correspondence, but what she finds isnt exactly what she was told! There is a sweet little girl, sad widower, well-meaning father and a wonderful-hearted brother all in the mix. Such a sweet romance builds between Daniel and Annika that you feel right along with them. I adored the ending and the closure that they all receive!
LucyWVAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Snuggle Up And EnjoyOctober 5, 2016LucyWVAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I won a copy of this Novella Collection and am so glad I did. What a perfect way to get in the holiday spirit. This would make a nice gift. Some of the authors were old favorites and others were new to me. Each has their unique writing style and bring something different to the table. I especially loved A Trusting Heart by Carrie Turansky. She brings such life to her characters, has such a way with words, and a twist to this mail order bride story. I loved the Faith and family themes throughout. Another standout to me was A CarpenterChristmas by Mary Davis. My husband is a carpenter, so I identified with this story. It is well written and very touching. Almost Home by Susan Page Davis doesn't disappoint and Darlene Franklin closes out with a heartwarming tale of Dressed in Scarlet. This deals with two classes of people thrown together in a blizzard. Can love overcome social boundaries? Pick up a copy and cuddle up for an enjoyable evening of reading.
