Starry Night: A Christmas Novel by Debbie Macomber

I love Debbie Macomber’s holiday books and have watched all the Hallmark movies as well, so I was excited to get my hands on Starry Night. This novel is a departure from her previous holiday reads as we don’t have meddling matchmakers. Starry Night is a straight up clean contemporary. While I missed the magic of her previous novels this was a fresh, clean, inspiring romance. Mini review: sweet, second-chance romance, heart-warming.

Kissing Under the Mistletoe by Marina Adair

I am not going to lie; I am a sucker for holiday themed romances. They put me in a festive mood and Kissing Under the Mistletoe did just that. This was a fun, smexy, snugly read and I quickly consumed it in a single evening. This is the first in the St. Helena Vineyard series and I cannot wait to go back to Napa Valley.

Must Love Mistletoe by Christie Ridgway

I purchased Must Love Mistletoe, for my Nook, because I was looking for a novel to put me in the holiday mood. I have enjoyed other novels by Ridgway and the synopsis piqued my interest. Must Love Mistletoe was a delightful romance about taking risks with your heart, empty nests and small towns.

I purchased Christmas at Timberwoods by Fern Michaels, as it was the December, book of the month selection for a Goodreads group. It is a romantic suspense novel, with events that take place in the days before Christmas. The central story involves a young woman who suffers from visions and her attempts to stop a horrific event from occurring. The tale unfolds as Michaels changes points of views between key characters.

Holiday Kisses: A Holiday Romance Collection by Shannon Stacey, Jaci Burton, HelenKay Dimon and Alison Kent

It isn’t often that I enjoy all of the stories in an anthology, but Holiday Kisses delivers. The novel contains four contemporary romances surrounding the holiday season. This is the first time I have ever given a 5 coffee cup review to a collection of works. Each story could stand on its own, and I would gladly read the full length version.
