Great Holiday reading!

Happy endings go hand in hand with Christmas and Nora Roberts knows how to please her readers! Both novellas have rocky beginnings but great endings. You will enjoy both.

These two novellas took a while to get through. I just didn't pick the omnibus back up after putting it down. They were stereotypical holiday novels, and I probably would have enjoyed them more if I had read them near Christmas.

I've mentioned this elsewhere, but holiday romance novellas are like Hallmark holiday movies: fluffy, improbable and satisfying in small doses. And with Nora Roberts, one thing you can count on is how quickly her characters fall in love with one another while being slow to admit it to themselves and each other. Its hella predictable, but I lap it up every single time. Especially over the holiday season. SIGH.

Anyway. I liked both stories, but the first one, Home for Christmas, has been done much

Holiday Wishes another Robert's hit.

Nora Roberts never disappoints. If you want a book with feel good wishes an holiday spirit this is the book for you. Both stories are full of sweet innocence and pure holiday goodness. All I want for Christmas is perfect. Two little boys want "the mom" for Christmas so they write a letter to Santa. Their single dad has no idea what is happening and is in for the ride of his life. It's been years since he has been interested in a woman. He has his boys to raise

Home for Christmas - 2 stars
I didn't really care for this one. It felt rushed and I did not connect with any of the characters. Well, I liked the little girl, but that's it.

All I Want for Christmas - 4 stars
Okay, this one was pretty cute. I wasn't sure that I was going to like it, based on the opening chapter, but I ended up liking it a lot. This one took its time to build up the story and characters. Roberts sure likes her complicated, complex men. Haha. I can suspend my disbelief for a sweet,

Two short love stories - At Home for Christmas - Pulitzer prize winning author Jason Law returns home, to the love of his life. And All I Want for Christmas - Mac Taylor's sons wish for "the Mom" for Christmas, and she walks into town as the new music teacher.

I usually enjoy everything Nora Roberts writes, and these stories were no exception. I loved all of the characters, especially the twins in All I Want for Christmas. The characters were believable and the story lines were plausible. This wa

Two short romances at Christmas time, they're your typical romances, meet cute, quickly falling in love, some sort of drama where there are misunderstandings and the characters don't communicate their feelings, both get angry/upset and one leaves crying/angry, one realises that they've made a mistake/been a fool and goes back to beg forgiveness and all is forgiven and they live happily ever after.

Have I summed that up about right?

They weren't too bad, nice and festive and that's really al

Two feel good Christmas novellas from Nora Roberts. These were originally released under a different name - The Gift - back in 2012. I vaguely remembered them before I bought them again in ebook format, but didn't care. I had a great holiday season (with little time to read), and these two stories gave me some Holiday cheer overlap into January.

Love everything Nora Roberts/J. D. Robb


And have since her first silhouette book. I remember thinking to keep an eye on this author. She brings laughter and tears to every story.

Two great stories

Loved both stories but wish they were longer. I found myself wanting to keep reading and for the stories not to end.

Quick easy read. Not quite the usual Nora Rober. ts. Enjoyable but didn't have that "can't put it down" feeling.

not her best

although short stories are lacking in "meat", character building is possible. The second story accomplished this far better. First one lacked both
