"3.5 stars" A Town Called Christmas is a sweet, easy holiday read that celebrates not only romance, but the warmth and simplicity of hearth and home with a family Christmas in small town America. I really liked the close-knit ties of the York clan, and that even though they didn't exactly approve of Merry's out-of-wedlock pregnancy, they were nonetheless very supportive. I also enjoyed their family-owned Christmas tree farm and snack bar/gift shop that was a very importan
Fairly middle-of-the-road series romance from Harlequin. Nice characterizations, and nice descriptions/settings, but (as with many series romances) the relationship between the primary couple happened way too fast to be believable. On the other hand, there didn't seem to be quite as much angst on both their parts, as there often is in this type of novel. A pleasant bit of holiday fluff, but nothing more.
No judging, please. *g*

This wasn't bad. I'm not sure how I ended up with two books in a row dealing with Iraq war vets, but whatever. They kept using the word preggo, and that, combined with the fact that she was five months along, kept bringing Patrick Maitland to mind, from Coupling. "You went out and pulled a pregnant woman? You didn't know she was pregnant, right?" "Oh, no, I knew! She was a full-on preggo! Five months, nice and compact." That alone amused me enough to keep me reading and re

This is a lovely Christmas time story, and it set in Christmas, Michigan too - LOL! The York family was a fun and interesting group and Mike was a wonderful guy. I really enjoyed reading about how he and Merry found a connection and fell in love. The secondary characters added to the reality of the story.
Hero Navy pilot gets a "dear John" letter from his fiancee, then goes home for Christmas with his buddy and falls in love with the buddy's sister. Lots of "small town charm" and Christmas fun, and flirting. Nice story.

There was never any doubt that Carrie Antilla would have a creative career. As a two-year-old, she imagined dinosaurs on the lawn. By six it was witches in the bedroom closet. Soon she was designing elaborate paper-doll wardrobes and writing stories about Teddy the Bear. Eventually she graduated to short horror stories and oil paints. She was working as an artist and a part-time librarian when she ...more
