Dang...a second Christmas book in a row that I consider a dud. First it was "Snowbound in the Earl's Castle" by Fiona Harper, and now this one, "Coming Home For Christmas" a collection of 3 Fern Michaels novellas. I had such high hopes for it. The cover is soooo cozy and Christmasy and the descriptions made me hope it would be like Hallmark holiday movies in book form. Alas, although these stories were corny, it wasn't in the good way.

The first story, "Silver Bells" started fine. Amy Lee is a mo
Don't even know where to start. The writing was good and each of the three novellas was very promising in the beginning. But the characters' actions were completely unbelievable. There was just no logic in their behavior and the choices they've made. Not to mention that they all had a strange tendency to fall in love with each other within 12 h or so of the first meeting. It was just all very odd and difficult to believe in.
Typical Christmas romance. Will never remember a thing about it, but it got me in the Christmas spirit!
eh..nah...didn't like the storys very a bit bored to be honest...

Yeah, this was pretty awful. Filing this under Never Again.
After reading some of the reviews below I had decided not to even read this book as I was very disappointed with Christmas At Timberwoods. At Christmas I like to read cheesey warmhearted stories of Christmas to put me in the spirit and keep me there with tales of snow, decorating, baking, shopping and of course loving, but all centered around the Christmas spirit like Debbie Macomber does. Late one night I couldn't sleep and I didn't have anything else downloaded to my reader except Coming Home ...more
I had to abandon this 18% of the way through. The storylines seemed quite promising but the style of writing was too rushed and didn't have sufficient character development to make it enjoyable.
Three sweet, quick and endearing Christmas stories. The fiction equivalent of Hallmark movies.
This is actually 3 novellas. I enjoyed the first one and on its own would have given it a 3.5 - 4 stars. However, the second one felt rushed and the denouement was completely unbelievable because of the rush. It seemed like 3/4 of the story was missing. The 3rd one I did not like at all. The male lead was a complete jerk and the entire time I wanted to get in the woman's face and say "Wake up! This guy is a jerk and you are way too good for him." The overall 2 stars is only because of the first ...more
I've never been a great fan of Fern Michaels, and these three novellas didn't do anything to change that. While, yes, there were some parts that I enjoyed and kept me going for a few pages, it mostly seemed quite cheesy and unrealistic. I love a good romance as much as the next person - maybe more- but I just couldn't get into these.
I wasn't expecting three short stories- not after ready a half dozen of Fern Michael's other books, but enjoyed them. Love lost and found, confidence lost and found, new friendships formed, trust, loyalty and the holidays. A wonderful diversion from the mysteries I've been reading.

This book was good
I enjoy reading Christmas stories. I have done it for years. I pretty much know what I am getting into while reading one. In this case, there are three stories in one book. They weren't bad stories. Sort of enjoyable. Tad too predictable.
I really wanted to like the compilation of three Christmas stories, but just because stories are Christmas themed does not mean that they are allowed to get away with poor dialogue, unbelievable plot lines and one dimensional characters. Eek!
cute short stories
Marie Godley
A set of 3 short stories - although the second and third ones are linked. The first one - Silver Bells was def my favourite.
Shelley Salter

Growing up in Hastings, Pennsylvania, I was called Ruth. I became Mary when I entered the business world where first names were the order of the day.
