I purchased this read because Lauraine Snelling wrote The Finest Gift and it was like I had hoped; very good. Christmas is weaved from beginning to end with interesting tidbits about Nutcrackers and woodworking which gave the overall feel of the book a quaint charm. The romance is not the head reindeer so that made it even better!!

The Finest Gift - by Lauraine Snelling - (four stars) This novella was very enjoyable to read, but I think it might have been better as a full-length novel. I felt like I knew how it would end right from the very beginning. The gift for the children of the orphanage was very touching, and it was a sweet holiday read.

A Blessed Season - by Jillian Hart - (five stars) - I love to read Jillian Hart's writing, even if it is a short novella, because she can get my emotions fully involved quickly. The

I'm glad I tracked this down - the first story was all right; I never got the sense that the grandmother was as bad as Arley kept saying. But mostly, I was glad to get a story for Cora Simms in Angel Falls - I've read a number of the historical McKaslin books and short stories and always liked her. Super sweet and exactly what I needed - this was the first book I could half pay attention to all month, with the medical stuff going on. Hurrah for fluff.

I always seem to gravitate towards the heartwarming Christmas romantics for my choice of reading when traveling. They are easy to set down and pick up again yet interesting enough to want to read when you have put them down. I really liked these two stories and finished them before I got home and wished I had the next book it talked about in the back of the book, which were more heartwarming Christmas books.

I am not usually a fan of novellas. There is never enough time to adequately develop plot or characters. These two were, as expected, a bit shallow and predictable. But still enjoyable. Clean, feel-good romances.

I guess inspirational romance just isn't my thing.
