Rhonda Nash-hallMadison Heights VAAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5nice quick readAugust 26, 2017Rhonda Nash-hallMadison Heights VAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I've always wanted to visit the Rocky Mountains. I live in the Blue Ridge Mountain region with my home being only a 10-minute drive from an entrance to them. Mountains spell enjoyment and instantly remind me of God's wondrous creation. I can't help being filled with wonder at the beauty and knowing that God is indeed an incredible artist! Spanning three states, and leading from the 1880 to 1913, the characters' use a variety of means of transportation....horses, cars and the newly invented railroad, but romance is a common thread. Faith is another common thread among the stories and authors. Different traditions are experienced and the Christmas spirit is alive and well in the hearts of budding love.
The novellas are sweet, fun, and quick to read. I enjoy being able to read one or two of the novellas and picking up on others another day. One can easily read the entire collection in one sitting or spread them over a period of time. While the novellas are predictable in romance stories, they are well-written and research into the time periods and regions are evident.
I am rating this novella collection 4 stars and highly recommend it, whether it is read near Christmas or at another time of year. I personally enjoyed reading it in summer and thinking ahead with expectation of the coming Christmas season.

susanmsjOdessa, TXAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great CollectionJanuary 16, 2017susanmsjOdessa, TXAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This was a great collection and I really enjoyed reading it. 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.
DeannaNEAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful, romantic collection from nine authors!December 30, 2016DeannaNEAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This nine author collection takes place in the late 1800's and centered around nine couples who find that Christmas was the perfect time to fall in love. I really enjoyed how the stories were connected, yet still a story all of their own. Getting snowed in during a blizzard with a person that can turn it into a romantic start to a relationship, loved it!! These authors know how to make it happen.. I couldn't pick a favorite because I enjoyed everyone of them!

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.
