    A Charming Set!

    *Note* This review is for The Kampala Peppermint Twist, which is just one of the many books in this box set. Annie’s life takes an unexpected turn after she dumps her boyfriend, loses her job, and decides to hop on a plane to Africa to visit her parents. She never expected to bump into the handsome, yet irritating stranger that she sat next to on her flight again. And she certainly didn’t expect to enjoy her visit to Africa so much. Will she choose to stay in the country she has come to love with the man she has come to care so deeply for? Or will she let fear overtake her and lose every chance of happiness…. I need to preface this by saying that in general, I prefer full-length novels to novellas. A lot of times, novellas are lacking in story and substance and there’s just something missing. However, that is most definitely not the case with this novella. This author is obviously a gifted writer and was able to create a beautiful story that was packed with substance, intrigue, and entertainment. I didn’t feel like anything was missing in this story. The writing style was smooth and flowed effortlessly and I loved the characters. Especially Raj. He and Annie definitely had this palpable chemistry that was incredibly addicting. In short, this was an extremely well-written novella that was fun and entertaining to read. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it! (I received an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review. All of the above opinions are entirely my own.)

    Totally love this box set so far

    What a totally fun box set written by some very talented authors. When you see a box set for this price it is hard to turn it down. It is a great way to get a taste of new authors and hopefully find one that will become your favorite. Untangling Christmas by Shanna Hatfield It was a totally delightful sweet read with a title that so fits the story. Neither Taylor nor Mike is looking for love both have been majorly hurt. Love or a relationship is very low on their list. Mike takes one look at this wild child and said NO WAY keep that fruitcake away from me. Taylor takes one look and said nice looking but what is going on with that wild hair. Mike said some things that he shouldn’t have and Taylor over hears him. Can we say HOT WATER! As they untangle the Christmas lights they seem to get all tangled together in other ways. It doesn’t help when everyone they know keeps pushing them together. I really liked Mike even if his mouth is a little too big at times. I really wanted to give him a talking to a time or two. Poor Taylor I felt so sorry for her when Mike’s mouth ran away and hurt her feelings. I really loved her Uncle he kept me laughing. This was a very run read that I read at one setting I just couldn’t get enough. The ending will wow you as these two work on getting their act together. I have to say this story put you right in the Christmas mood. I love the humor that this author brings to this box set. I am not going to lie even though I really liked Mike there was a time or two I would have loved to have had a heart to heart. There was nothing I didn’t like about Taylor from her bright clothes to her sunny ways. The author gives you a few passionate scenes that will melt your heart along with a very good plot. Their friends were a delight I got a kick out of watching them try their hands a match making. There is pain and sorrow along with a lot of love that fills this pages. I got a lot of enjoyment and laughs along with tons of smiles. I can’t wait to read more from each of these author as I read this set I will update my review. This is going to be one fun loving wonderful set of read for sure.

    Fun Christmas Stories

    A great collection of Christmas stories. I received "On Christmas Eve" by Mona Risk and "Secret Wish" by Victoria Pinder in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed both stories. I have always enjoyed stories by Victoria Pinder but this was the first book I've read by Mona Risk and enjoyed it. I purchased this bundle and look forward to reading the other stories. You can't go wrong with seventeen books to read.

    These will get you in the Christmas mood

    I received an ARC for four of the Sweet Christmas Kisses 3 in exchange for an honest review. These definitely got me in the Christmas mood! On Christmas Eve, by Mona Risk Tiffany and Matthew were the perfect loving couple engaged to be married when a misunderstanding separates them for five years. Now, she runs into him again (literally with her car) and finds out he has twin daughters. Fate has a way of bringing them together several times before Tiffany realizes maybe they are meant to be a couple again. If you love sweet medical romances, this is for you. Ms. Risk should really think about expanding On Christmas Eve into a full-length novel. There is enough plot, characterization, conflict, and swoon to fill 300 pages. Christmas Holly, by Christine Bush I received this advanced copy in exchange for a fair review. This is a story about Holly, who is lonely and allows her career to take the place of relationships, until she is laid off and her sister Aggie is deployed overseas. Aggie needs someone to take care of her menagerie of pet, so Holly agrees to move to the tiny community, Clayton Island. Most of the inhabitants only live there during the summer months, but she manages to befriend several ‘year rounders’ including her next door neighbor, Sam and his adorable triplets. Sam is swallowing in grief after losing his wife during childbirth while he also was deployed overseas. Sam and Holly become friends and both long for more. I loved the sweet, slow burn of this romance, but at times, I felt the pacing was off. I enjoyed the parts of the story where the reader was in Sam’s head more because even though we get a glimpse of his sadness and extreme guilt from losing his wife, the amount of backstory for him was appropriate. The backstory for Holly seemed a bit much for a novella. I loved that Holly finally was able to overcome her grief about losing her parents at an early age and that she has a second chance at a family, with Sam and with the entire Clayton Island community. Mistletoe and Sage, by Lyn Cote From the very first line in the story, Sage, a single mom is already feeling the pull of the new deputy Garrett. They have been assigned to determine the cause of the recent vandalism cases in the area. Both Sage and Garrett have lots of pain and aren’t ready for a relationship, but Garrett can’t keep from wanting Sage more than just a co-worker and her darling little boy… oh he can’t get enough of him. Sage and Mistletoe is a wonderful romantic mystery and I wasn’t ready for it to end. A Merry Little Christmas, by Denise Devine I loved everything about this story. Merry is a divorced mother of two and her ex-husband is in jail for stealing money from his client. Tony lost his wife and son a few years earlier in a car wreck and is also the sister-in-law to Neal, the man who lost the money. Neal hired Tony to find out where Merry’s ex-husband has hidden the money. Tony immediately doesn’t want to be in the middle of this and as soon as he meets Merry and her sweet children, he knows he cannot go along with the plan. Merry has already been lied to by her husband, she sure doesn’t need to be lied to by Tony. Their pull toward one another is a slow, sweet attraction by the time they realize it, truths come out that can wreck a happily ever after. A Merry Little Christmas is my favorite of the four novellas I read in exchange for honest reviews. I would love to see this story in a full-length novel and I look forward to reading more by Ms. Devine.
