    Charming Stories from My Favorite Fictional Place!

    *Note, this review is for Once Upon A Thanksgiving, Once Upon A Christmas, and Once Upon A New Year’s Eve, which are three of the 15 novellas in this box set. I got started on the Christmas Town stories a couple years ago and they have been my favorites of all the holiday books that come out this time of year. I love the idea of different authors connecting their stories by a common family, place, or event. In this case, the authors are connecting their stories through a common place: Christmas Town, Maine. The novellas I read were about three former college roommates who decide to go into business together in Christmas Town. Lacey, Charlotte, and Gavin are building their design company, Boxes and Boughs, from scratch and are hoping to help clients with their holiday decorating needs. However, they’re not sure that they can generate enough income to keep them afloat throughout the rest of the year, leaving them wondering how permanent this new business venture will be. Once Upon A Thanksgiving When Lacey takes on the Hume family as clients, she definitely gets more than she bargained for. Not only has she had to go head-to-head with her clients’ handsome but stubborn grandson multiple times, but Chris and Lily Hume want some of the tackiest decorations known to man to grace their front lawn. Can Lacey honor her clients’ wishes while still keeping Boxes and Boughs’ reputation intact? Once Upon A Christmas Charlotte agrees to take two children who are grieving the loss of their mother on as clients, vowing to give them the best Christmas she can. However, that proves to be a little difficult when their well-meaning, but completely out-of-touch-with-reality uncle gets in the way. Can Charlotte give Addison and Wesley the type of Christmas they so desperately need? And can she fight her growing attraction to their nerdy but incredibly cute Uncle Grant? Once Upon A New Year’s Eve Gavin is still grieving the death of his best friend and is feeling stifled in Christmas Town. While he and his business partners have had a very successful holiday season with their business, he’s feeling increasingly more restless. It doesn’t help that the beautiful new veterinarian in town makes him uncomfortable with her spot-on observations about his secret intent to pack up and leave. Will this new business venture be enough for him? Or will the excitement of his former life be too strong and pull him back? I thoroughly enjoyed this set of novellas. I have loved reading about Christmas Town for the last couple years and was so excited to read about more of the characters from that charming little place! I thought this was a great set and I breezed through it in no time. I really enjoyed getting to know each of the different characters and their love interests. The chemistry was sizzling in all three stories, but was kept very clean, which I appreciate. Honestly, you can’t beat the price of this set of 15 novellas! I pre-ordered mine right away! I promise that you’ll love this box set and am willing to bet that you’ll fall in love with the characters of Christmas Town just like I have! I highly recommend this set! (I received an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review. However, I have also purchased the box set. All of the above opinions are entirely my own.)

    Get Ready for Christmas!

    I was able to read a set of 3 of these stories and really enjoyed getting into the Christmas spirit! Going back to Christmas Town, Maine makes me want to live there. I wish such a place existed! *Once Upon a Thanksgiving by Anna Adams This story brings out the Christmas spirit by helping us remember what is really important during the holidays. Michael thinks he is doing all the right things for his grandparents - for their physical well-being - but he doesn't really listen to them as to what they REALLY want. He just keeps making decisions for them and not really taking their wishes into consideration. Lacey, on the other hand, listens to them and tries to get Michael to understand that his grandparents want to stay in Christmas Town. I enjoyed the dynamics of all the people in the story and remembering the holidays bring out the best in people when it comes down to it! *Once Upon a Christmas by Anna J. Stewart I absolutely loved this story --- probably because it involved two children who lost their mother and were in the custody of their Uncle Grant who was a scientist & very absorbed in writing a book so didn't know how to help them through their grief. Enter Charlotte, who has so much love and compassion for children....she shows Grant how to celebrate Christmas again and deal with the children's grief....and his own! The characters were wonderful and the story so touching. I had great emotion as I read this story. It definitely touches your heart and soul! *Once Upon a New Year's Eve by Melinda Curtis Amelia, known as Dr. Scrooge around town, just wants to get through the holidays and continue getting her veterinary practice up to speed. She's had about enough with all the well-meaning people in town trying to decorate her "space" for the holidays! Gavin "loses" a huge dog that ends up "finding" Amelia and brings the two of them together! Gavin is all about decorating for Christmas and he slowly tries to draw Amelia out of her "Scrooge" personality! A fun story and it also touched me. We can all bring joy and happiness to others during the holiday season! ***I received a complimentary copy of these 3 books.

    Uplifting Romantic Magic

    A Heartwarming Holiday collection of Novellas presented a group of uplifting, fresh, and joyful approaches to each holiday that engaged the reader in the holiday season. The development of a romantic relationship with all the various twists and turns was the centerpiece of each novella. Each author included well developed characters and plot details that could have fit into a full length novel. Stellar writing ability can be attributed to each individual writer in this collection with their ability to bring the reader into each holiday experience and hold the reader’s attention to the last word on the page. I would highly recommend this collection and each authors’ individual work.

    Wonderful sweet romance for the holidays

    This review is on three of the stories within the anthology: Book 5 Nutcracker Sweethearts which was gifted to me. The three stories are by Dana Mentink, Roz Denny Fox and Amie Denman. These three stories were a delight. I love reading about characters in the same town and Christmas Town is well named for the season. I especially enjoyed Roz Denny Fox's story as it was very touching. Christmas stories are always a favorite and I also really enjoy clean and wholesome romances. I would recommend these for getting in the mood for Christmas.
