A Log Cabin Christmas is a collection of stories that are about 50 pages long. It is hard to believe that so much could be told with such a short length of story. All of the stories are centered around the 1800s, in a log cabin and Christmastime.

A Log Cabin Christmas includes:

Grand County Christmas by Debra Ullrick

Christmas Service by Erica Vetsch

A young woman feels she was born to be serve God by being a pastor's wife. A young man wants to court her but he is a blacksmith. The woman plans to pass up love to be true to her calling.

This collection of stories, apart from Christmas Traps and Trimmings, were all very heart warming at one point or another. I tried to read Christmas Traps and Trimmings but I could barely get through the first chapter. All of the stories are predictable. How could they not be with their length? I still liked them a lot. There is also sadness with the death of loved ones in every story. But love always wins in the end. All of the stories have a different writing style. I actually got teary eyed at the end of Grand County Christmas. I knew what was coming but the tears still came. I would recommend A Log Cabin Christmas to anyone who likes romance stories with some inspiration added to them.

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley for my honest review.
