1st novella, A Christmas Bride by Catherine Palmer ~ 5*

I loved this novella featuring Lucy Cornwall & Rolf Rustemeyer from Catherine Palmer's A Town Called Hope series. It was lovely to see both of them finally get a happily ever after, and it was really nice that it was set during the Christmas season. I also loved Rolf's handmade ornaments and the meanings behind was a nice touch to include them in.

2nd novella, Reforming Seneca Jones by Elizabeth White ~ 4*

I enjoyed this Christma
Three Christmas Novellas set on the prairie.

The Christmas Bride - Rolf Rustemeyer is excited about his bride coming from Germany. He just wishes that there was a way to make his friend Lucy Cornwall just as happy.

My thoughts - It was a pleasure to return to the town of Hope. I'd read this years ago, and while this one wasn't my favorite of the collection, it was still sweet. 3 stars

This is three short stories/novellas by three separate authors in one book and includes some tasty recipes. They are completely separate stories that do not relate to one another but share a prairie theme. I enjoy prairie reads as well as Christmas stories so I enjoyed these short stories. I think I prefer the second story to the other 2.

I picked up this book mainly to read the first story, The Christmas Bride by Catherine Palmer, as it was a brief continuation of her Town Called Hope series. I very much enjoyed that series, and while the novella was pleasant enough, I found it lacking. It was just too short. Don't get me wrong though, I loved seeing the characters again and finding out what happened to Rolf and Lucy, I just feel they deserved a longer story.

The story Reforming Seneca Jones was only ok and I could not get into

This was a fun little book I just read for relaxation purposes - a few sweet little stories of God bringing couples together... The type of book that takes no thought to read, and leaves a smile on your face... :)

It was okay. First story was the best I think. Just a book that caught my eye on the shelf because it was in the Christmas season at the time.

unique heroines--abuse survivors, elderly couples, 3 short stories here that were quick to read and easy to relate to...
The first story was excellent, the second story was good, and the third story was okay. I read the first two and skimmed the last one.
