Two Christmas romance stories. One of the novellas takes place during WW II and the other present day. These are heartwarming, make you feel happy stories.

Love Finds You at Home for Christmas is two sweet Christmas stories rolled into one book.
The first is set in the forties during the war and tells Ruby’s story.
The second is set in present time and tells the story of Sophie, Ruby’s granddaughter.
I enjoyed both stories, but preferred Sophie’s story a little more than Ruby’s. The books are written by two different others and I just felt that Sophie’s story was told with some added dimension and description. The author’s writing was smooth and the

I've read both of these authors previously, so I was anticipating enjoying this book. There were some problems with it, like pacing of each of the stories within it, but on the whole, it was an enjoyable read. I much preferred the WWII story, despite the flaws of the characters, as it seemed a more in depth romance than the contemporary one. Definitely worth reading again at Christmas!

Sometimes a book finds you at the exact right time. This is that book. It warms the soul and quietly unravels the chords of doubt that anything but good is on its way. Here's to miracles of love, friendship, and finding yourself exactly where you are.

Love Finds You At Home For Christmas is a book comprised of two novella's written by two individual authors - Annalisa Daughety and Gwen Ford Gaulkenberry.

I struggled with trying to decide how to rate this book, whether I should give a rating for each individual novella, or whether I should rate the book as a whole. I came to a compromise and am rating the book as a whole but sharing my thoughts on each story individually.

Pretty good stories but a little skimpy in the details like all short stories. I agree with another reviewer that said there were pace problems within the stories, almost like parts were left out so they seemed a little disjointed. The stories were good especially the WWII story.

While on a weekend road trip last month, I read Love Finds You at Home for Christmas--a two-part book series full of Christmas warmth and goodness.

If the fact that I started and finished the book while on a road trip with my two young kids tells you anything, I really liked it!

Sweet Southern Christmas by Annalisa Daughety, the first book in the series, tells a Christmas tale of years gone by. This story takes place in a small Arkansas town during World War II. Daughety truly painted the perfect

This book has two stories inside. I read the first one and enjoyed it mainly because it's in a historical setting. I may or may not read the second because it's contemporary romance, which is not my favorite genre. I skimmed it a bit and it didn't grab my interest. So probably not.

The story by Annalisa was heartwarming and sweet. It included a nice bit of history from the WWII era that included jobs to help the war effort. I didn't care for the heroine much because stubborn wo

Love, love, loved this book! It's a sweet, make-you-feel good kind of book. It's actually two stories in one book. Past and present.

Sweet Southern Christmas, is the "past" story. The time is 1943. World War II. This was actually my favorite of the two stories. The ending, as well as the epilogue, will make you sigh. It's that sweet. I also appreciate that the author tells the story without a lot of fluff about the surroundings, dress details, etc. This story gets 5 stars.

This book has two stories written by two different authors. I only read the first one, Sweet Southern Christmas by Annalise Daughety. It was an easy read. There was too much talk about how each other liked each other but didn't want to lay it all out there to each other. Anyway, I'm not a chick lit chick but met the author and wanted to read one of her books.

I enjoyed Small-Town Christmas. In the book Sophie was trying to rebuild her life.

Sweet Southern Christmas is a World War II romance.
