Review: A Heartwarming Holiday

a-heartwarming-holiday

This is a review for three of the fifteen novellas in this collection. All three of these interconnected stories were sweet and fun. They were easy to sit down and enjoy and were a nice way to look forward to the upcoming holidays.

Once Upon a Thanksgiving by Anna Adams

Of the three stories, I had a bit more trouble connecting with the characters in this novella, but still enjoyed the story. Bring together a man who loves his family but feels he has something to prove, with a woman who doesn’t have a strong family connection, and two grandparents who simply want their extended family home for Thanksgiving and you have the makings for a very unique celebration.

Once Upon a Christmas by Anna J. Stewart

In this novella, it took me a little bit to warm up to the hero of the story, however, once I understood his back story and watched the leading lady work her holiday magic for two sad children, I really enjoyed seeing this little family learn to celebrate Christmas together.

Once Upon a New Year’s Eve by Melinda Curtis

This novella was fun right from the start. The two main characters were both hurting in different ways and neither one was very happy with the way their lives were taking shape when the story began. I enjoyed watching their journey together and the humor that the dog brought into the story.

(4 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of these three novellas. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
