I just love Christmas anthologies and A CHRISTMAS TO REMEMBER was better than most.

It starts off strong, sweet and romantic with Jill Shalvis’s DREAM A LITTLE DREAM (Lucky Harbor novella) where broken-hearted firefighter Ian O’Mallery gets a second chance to prove their love is worth keeping to salon owner and commitment phobic Melissa Mann after a near fatal accident.

Next in EVERY YEAR (A Chaos novella) by Kristen Ashley we’re given a great story about the happy, healing power of the Christmas spirit and the love of family as the Allen’s share their Christmas traditions with Shy and Landon Cage.

Then in SILENT NIGHT (Last Chance novella) by Hope Ramsay she offers a sweet story of two people, Maryanne Carpenter,a young homeless mother and attorney, Daniel Jessup, who has lost everyone he loves, alone and lost in the world. The miracle of them finding each other is well-written and very touching.

Then in Molly Cannon’s HAVE YOURSELF A MESSY LITTLE CHRISTMAS (Everson, TX novella) was a cute story about bachelor Lincoln Jones. An accountant with a sharp eye for books but scattered house in need of professional organizer, Dinah Mason. This one was a little rushed at the end, but sweet.

Lastly in A FAMILY FOR CHRISTMAS (Tallgrass novella) by Marilyn Pappano gives a story about cute little Christmas elf and war widow, Ilena Gomez who expects to spend Christmas alone with her infant son. But when handsome new pediatrician, Jared Connors moves to town he is immediately smitten and despite his parents plans for his future, he has other plans in mind with her and her son.
