Merry Merry by Fern Michaels
Cute story. The characters always seemed a little anxious...the dialogue was funny. Not as well developed as it could have been...I didn't quite understand Gertie's point. The idea of Helen also seemed to have been dropped. It is a short story, though, and for that, I liked it.

A Baby for Christmas by Lisa Jackson
Another cute story. It began better than it ended, though. Maybe it is because it is a short story that it was tied up a little too loosely for me--it did ge

The collection is quite alright. A fun and light read when you need a break. However, it could have been even better if the stories were a little more fleshed out, especially "The 24 Days of Christmas" by Linda Lael Miller. The end was just too abrupt for a story which began and continued very nicely. Had loads of problem with Virginia Henley's "Christmas Eve" but sometimes you just need to keep the political correctness out of your head when you pick a collection like this.

I know it's not anywhere near Christmas time but I am up for a Christmas story any time of the year. There is just so much joy in these stories, they're always good for a pick me up or just a happy day. These stories were no exception and met my expectations.

Merry Merry by Fern Michaels
I have to say that didn't love this story. The Christmas was great and the characters were lovely. The storyline even had twists and elements that made it fresh. My only problem with it was the editing, which goes

I'd give it half a star but the last story wasn't too bad. One of the stories - the one by Lisa Jackson - has been recycled at least once before. Actually, according to the page with all the publishing info, all but two are recycled.

On to shredding the stories...

Fern Michaels' entry: Oh what a tangled web we weave. The H's grandma has been impersonating a bag lady and befriending the h. The H wants the H's property for some unexplained reason. He did a background check on her that the PI took a

I think I'm getting old & cynical & should stop reading stuff like this. There was a time when I'd go "Awww, that's sweet." Now I'm going "Yee gods, who does that?!?"

For the Disney princesses, which I used to be, you'll enjoy it. It's romantic fluff that ends happily ever after.

For the Maxines, which I am now, you'll be digging around, looking for those air sickness bags you hoarded from Delta.
This book was a condensed book of Christmas romance which was nice and heart felt. Some of the stories though the people just met and had sex, known eachother for 2 days and the next page engaged????? I think they should have either wrote a short story or just let them have flings cause it rarely works with the marriage thing so soon.

A great 393 page book to be read at any time. This incorporates five authors, Fern Michaels, Linda Lael Miller, Lisa Jackson, Virginia Henley, Marcia Evanick who now write other genres you may be reading now.

Good collection of Christmas tales. Pets, babies, advent calendars, snow-ins, and old flames bring the holiday spirit to all who read this anthology. Great read!!

Fern Michaels isn’t a person. I’m not sure she’s an entity either since an entity is something with separate existence. Fern Michaels is what I DO. Me, Mary Ruth Kuczkir. 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. To this day, family and friends call me Dink, a name my father gave me when I w ...more
