Review: Christmas Eve Kisses

by Margaret Daley, Lacy Williams, Lyn Cote, & Brenda Minton

Christmas Eve KissesJust like the other Inspy Kisses novella collections, Christmas Eve Kisses was simply wonderful! It was full of sweet and romantic stories. Each one was enjoyable in its own way.

The Knight and the Damsel by Margaret Daley:

This novella has excitement, danger, and romance all tied together in a rodeo setting. The two main characters each had their own traumas from the past that they needed to move on from, which added  great emotion to the story.

Jingle Bell Cowgirl by Lacy Williams

What an enjoyable novella! I have to admit that the author had me wondering for so long about what past mistake haunted Lila Andrews. She kept me guessing until it was finally revealed. There were some great twists in this story and the main characters were so fun to read about.

Winter Homecoming by Lyn Cote

I just loved the set up for this story. It is set during the Great Depression, which is a time period that I have not read a whole lot of books about. These main characters both had so much pain and uncertainty that they were harboring. It added great tension to the story! I really liked the main characters, Will and Cass, and what I learned about them as the story progressed.

Meant to Be by Brenda Minton

Oh, this story had such great heart! I loved the back story and felt so sorry for all that Laney had endured. The friendship that held the possibility of something more between Laney and Aaron was so sweet. The interactions between these two were just perfect.

This is a great collection! I enjoyed every story immensely.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
