This is a fun anthology of holiday-appropriate novellas by bestselling indie authors.  I loved reading through these because they had me antsy for the holiday season to begin! 

Each of the short stories is very different, but my favorites would be the ones by Melody Anne and Kate Meader.  Some of the stories are certainly have more background than others, which is why I liked the last two the most.  I was particularly drawn to Meader’s story as it takes place in Chicago.  I think this would be a great book to pick up and put down between holiday prep or to read one story a night.

Please note: I received a free copy of this anthology from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Rating: 4 stars!

Who should read it?  Romance fans looking to get into the holiday spirit!
