My Comments: Every year I read tons of Christmas books, and I’ve already read one Amish, now I’m reading one secular. I love this type of book because there is mystery and suspense as well as romance. The first story A Ranger for Christmas was full of content – especially for a short story. I loved it! The characters were not perfect, yet they were totally interesting and people I would love to know. The pull towards family is strong, but the pain some people feel at the holidays was also very present.
My favorite stories were the first two, A Southern Christmas and A Ranger for Christmas. I read and enjoyed the other two, but the first two really caught my interest. Short stories put into an anthology are great for this time of the year, when I still enjoy reading, but don’t have the time for a long novel. I get it read quickly and completely. Thanks NetGalley for the free review copy. This opinions are totally my own.
