For the most part, reading anthologies offers me the opportunity to try authors I am not familiar with. Whether I am visiting old places or trying new settings, the short stories offer me different writing styles. THAT CHRISTMAS FEELING contained three contemporary novellas; one that was part of a series.

Brenda Novak's A Dundee Christmas brought together some of the characters from STRANGER IN TOWN, one of stories from her Dundee, Idaho series. This time around, Kenny 'Ken' Price was all grown u

I loved Brenda Novak's story best. The other two were a bit Meh.
I found this at the library and decided to read it because I saw that Brenda Novak had a story in this one. It was just okay for me. Three very short stories and none give you a satisfying HEA. The problem with short stories is that you never get much development in the story for obvious reasons. For what it was it wasn't bad but I have to have a little better ending to give it a higher rating.

"A Dundee Christmas" by Brenda Novak is a prequel of sorts to Novak's "Dundee" series. It was well written and made me want to learn more of some of the other characters in the series.
Kathleen O'Brien brings us "We Need a Little Christmas." Anne Browning and Nathaniel Araby have good chemistry, but the novella format requires an ending that comes too quickly for the rest of the story line. Anne helps take care of Nathaniel's grandfather, a man Nat thought cold and unfeeling.

Wow – we’ve reached the end of TBR Challenge 2012! This month’s theme was holiday romance, so I had no trouble finding a book in my TBR pile to fit it. In the end, I decided I was in the mood for something contemporary, so I went with Harlequin Superromance’s 2010 anthology, That Christmas Feeling. I read the whole book, but it was definitely a mixed bag. Overall, I’d put it in the B-/C+ range.

The first story, A Dundee Christmas by Brenda Novak, was the most unique but also the most problemati

Wow! I absolutely loved the Bliss novella, Kiss Me Santa. It was very well written and the scene where Mike brought out the beer bottles in only his boxers and a tie to scare off the potential buyers had me rolling on the floor! I will definitely be looking for more of her work! The Novak novella was a bit of a let-down. I felt like too much time was devoted to the beginning of the story and not enough to the end. I also had trouble believing Ken and Cierra knew each other well enough to fall in ...more

Three stories in one book. The first story involves a young woman who has come to the US to marry so that she can stay in the country. The problem is that he dies before she can marry him. So the ex-wife sends her to her brother but the woman gets to the wrong house in a snowstorm. The tale lies in what happens. Not too Christmassy but okay. The second story is about a young woman trying to save a Christmas tradition and a ranch. Help comes in a very intersting way. Good story lots of Christmas. ...more

I only read "A Dundee Christmas" (thanks god I'm finished with that series). And I remembered why I avoid collection books. Writing a short story requires certain talent, it's not easy, and more often than not in Romance Books, they are a disappointment. I read it just to finished the Dundee series. I suppose it's a sweet short story, and it had potential as many Novak's stories have, but the restriction didn't work in her favor. Let's blame her editor and her publishing house, they should have ...more

Brenda Novak's "That Christmas Feeling" was an interesting story with an out-of-the-ordinary heroine, and Kathleen O'Brien's "We Need a Little Christmas" was sweet, if predictable. But Karina Bliss's "Kiss Me, Santa" was five-star-worthy, my top Christmas read of 2010. I love the believability and the likeability of Bliss's characters generally, and she was in top form here. There were some laugh-out-loud scenes and some poignant ones. I expect to be rereading this one for Christmases to come.

A very nice Christmas anthology. O'Brien and Bliss were already know to me, but now I want to try some more Novak.

It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak’s bestselling author career.

“I caught my day-care provider drugging my children with cough syrup and Tylenol to get them to sleep while I was away,” Brenda says. “It was then that I decided that I needed to do something from home.”

However, writing was the last profession she expected to undertake. In fact, Brenda swears she didn’t have a
