A Winter Wonderland

My favorite stories from this wonderful collection was “A Winter Wonderland” and “The Christmas Thief.” A Winter Wonderland was a very sweet love story about two lonely people that never expected to find love on Christmas. Angelica was trying to get away from it all and make some difficult decisions about her future when she ran into the gorgeous Parker North in Colorado. These two had great chemistry together and I loved reading their romantic story.

The Christmas Thief is a spinoff of the Lucy Stone mystery series and I was excited to see Lucy’s daughter, Elizabeth, all grown up and on her own in the big city. Elizabeth is working for a fancy hotel in Florida and has to give up her plans to visit home because of a prestigious event taking place over the holidays. Elizabeth finds herself in the middle of a crime when expensive jewelry is stolen and she is one of the few people that had access to the items. Great mystery and Elizabeth finds a little romance of her own for the holidays.

The other two stories in this collection are “The Joy of Christmas” and “The Christmas Collector.” Both of these stories are nice little romances about finding love in unlikely places around the holidays and this book is perfect for reading when you want light-hearted romances that make you smile.

"The Joy of Christmas" by Holly Chamberlin introduces Iris Karr, who thinks "not all happiness is good for you," when she decides to move away instead of marrying her sweetheart Ben. Even years later, living with that decision isn't easy - until a familiar face comes to call her home for the holidays.

In Leslie Meier's "The Christmas Thief," Elizabeth Stone is ready for a white Christmas in Tinker's Cove, Maine - until a fancy Yule ball at the Florida hotel where she works dumps snow on her plans. The sponsor's jewels have gone missing and the police are asking about her ties to a cute mystery guest. Good thing Elizabeth's mother, Lucy Stone, flew down to surprise her. 'Tis the season for a little investigating. In "The Christmas Collector" by Kristina McMorris, estate liquidator Jenna Matthews isn't one for Christmas nostalgia.
