This Time Next Year by Alison Kent
A Rare Gift by Jaci Burton
It's Not Christmas Without You by HelenKay Dimon
Mistletoe and Margaritas by Shannon Stacey
I knew I would enjoy the Jaci Burton story since I had read A Rare Gift before in the Kent Holiday series.
really liked this, and it worked as a novella. The story hits on a few
emotional levels, and had a lot of heat and good tension. I loved
Calliope and how she tames Wyatt. A nice little love story.
Stacy also delivers in her story, Mistletoe and Margaritas, a sweet
friends-to-lovers starting over story. You can’t help but want Claire
and Justin to find comfort and love together. Shannon Stacy always
makes me feel like her characters could come from my home town, and I
like that about her work.
Alison Kent and HelenKay Dimon were new authors for me and I really liked both stories.
This Time Next Year by Alison Kent, Brenna is rescued by the hot but
damaged local doctor and she has to make some tough decision about not
only their relationship, but her own future. Will she see her own
dreams come true or has she changed them now that she’s met Dillon?
loved the recognition of health care professionals in the armed forces
and those who volunteer to help the needy. Such wonderfully understated
but powerful themes for me in this story.
It's Not Christmas
Without You by HelenKay Dimon was an interesting treatment of career
versus love story. What happens when you are still in love but the job
keeps you apart? I loved the struggles of these two characters and I
especially loved Austin’s love and devotion to Carrie. It came across
Lovely holiday anthology. Recommended.
Thanks to Harlequin and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review.
