The Christmas Cookie Collection by Lori Wilde is an Avon publication and was released in 2013. I received a copy of this book from the publisher and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. I am also reviewing the book for Lori's review crew.

This is a Christmas themed collection of four short stories centered around the small Texas town of Twilight.

The first story is about Mark and Carrie. The town of Twilight has a legend concerning a penny fountain. The legend is that if you throw a penny

Lori Wilde’s Twilight, Texas series is one of my favorite contemporary romance series’. The stories are heartwarming, funny, romantic, passionate, and always make me believe in the power of true love. And, as I’m sitting here finally posting this review, I’m shocked to see

The Christmas Cookie Collection by Lori Wilde
Love this book-it's four stories in one to begin with and I have read many of the authors books about Twilight and love them all. Especially like Christmas themed ones.
I have read the other Club books and love the town and people for all the charity work they do for others.
This book starts out with Carrie, Carrie MacGregor and she hates Christmas.
She runs the town yarn store after the original one in town burned down. She heads up the town knitting

Her ex-husband Mark (from an extremely short lived marriage)is back in town as part of a TV show that wants to explore the legend of sweethearts reuniting in Twilight.

This is the perfect Christmas collection of novellas and each one takes place in Twilight Texas. These little stories are sweet and touching and they really help to put you in the Holiday mood.

Now each story features a member of the Christmas Cookie Club. They are the perfect length and none of the stories feel rushed or anything.

Carrie – The man she was married to for one whole weekend is back and he is not alone. He is the host of a new TV show that debunks myth similar to the one Twilight,

The Christmas Cookie Collection is just what the name states a collection of sweet romances. If you like novels by Debbie Macomber, Robyn Carr etc, you'll love Lori Wilde.

These stories are all set in the little town of Twilight Texas that thrives on the Sweetheart Myth, which is anyone that tosses a penny in the fountain will be reunited with their sweetheart and live happily ever after.

I really loved these stories, though I have to say the first two are the best. Carrie and Mark's story was so

I received this book for review from the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.

One thing I love about Lori is that she always finds a way to make the reader laugh. She also creates scenes that as you watch it unfold, you can do nothing to stop what is about to happen. The three stories are in the perfect order – start with a Christmas romance and end with what started this holiday in the first place.

If you’re a fan of Lori Wilde’s books,

Oh My where do I start with this one? The Christmas Cookie Collection contains so many of my favorite things I'm not sure which one to tell you about first.

First of all if you have read a lot of my reviews you know that I love Christmas stories. I'll read a good Christmas story in the middle of July given the chance. However when it gets to be this time of year and I am given the chance to read a Christmas story, I am beyond ecstatic. Ireally enjoy Lori Wilde's work. She has a wonderful talent

Their are four short stories in the book each about four different women in Twilight, Texas. The book will make you laugh and cry. It is a heartwarming book that you will want to read every Christmas season. A perfect stocking stuffer. I loved all four stories and if you asked me which one is my favorite I would have to say all of them. Thanks Lori ...more

Story one was of Carrie Mac Gregor ...

The story starts with Carrie displaying that she hated Christmas. In Twilight, Texas Carrie owned the Yarn Burn store and its was close to Thanksgiving. What will her life take on as the knitting club ('gossipy

I loved each of these wonderful stories which is the perfect romance collection for the holiday season. Each of these stories revolves around a member of the Christmas Cookie Club that are having a hard time around the holidays due to losing someone that they truly cared about or have yet to find their true love.

The first story involves Carrie who hates the holidays because her high school sweetheart, Mark, left her after having their marriage annulled eight years ago. She never has gotten over

There's a legend in Twilight, Texas. It says that if on Christmas you sleep with kismet cookies under your pillow and dream of your one true love, he will be your destiny. — Carrie, Raylene, Christine, and Flynn are all members of the Christmas Cookie Club. Each has a story to tell, and each discovers the miracles of the season and the power of love.

Carrie: Reconnects with her high school sweetheart . . .the only man she's ever loved.

The town myth is that if you throw a penny in the fountain

This collect of romance novellas takes place in the town of Twilight, Texas. The book has four major stories and a final short story that completes the first story of Flynn the daughter of Raylene in the second novella. All are members of the Christmas Cookie Club and the knitting club who work to see that less fortunate families have a Christmas.

First two stories were great for me. Good characters, good conflict and all of that. The last two seemed to have underdeveloped conflict. I just don't buy into the "I'm infertile so no man could ever want me!" situation. I do understand being disappointed you could never have children, but few men will walk away for that reason and that reason alone.

And the last story was cute, but... I just don't know.

Regardless, Twighlight is a town I'd enjoy reading more from.

Lori Wilde brings us a collection of stories in one. This is a story about the women of Twilight, Texas. Twilight has a long history of romance and legend tells that if you throw a coin into the fountain you will find true love and live happily ever after. The well developed characters are strong and very lovable and each woman has her own story to tell. Each and everyone has made mistakes at one point or other and must come to terms with there mistake and figure out how to make it right.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review.

This book contains four stories that take place in Twilight, Texas. I really enjoyed the stories, but I think my favorite of the four was Raylene. Twilight sounds like a really nice town and enjoys a lot of tourism because of the Sweetheart legend.

Twilight, Texas - town lore says that if you threw a penny in the fountain at Sweetheart Park that you would forever be reunited with your high school sweetheart and live happily ever after.

Four great stories to add to the Twilight, TX series. If you haven't read any of Lori's books this series would be a good place to start. She makes you wish you lived in her town. Thanks Lori can't wait for the next story.

I got a copy of this book from Lori, as part of her review team. I always love her books & this was no exception. 4 novellas of 2nd chances, each with a different scenario, but all taking place in the same time frame. Each of the heroines had their own brand of pain,but a heartwarming HEA.

This is a wonderful series all inclusive in one book Lori Wilde writes stories that are not vulgar, you can let your grandma or teen read them. These romances are all set in small town Texas and intertwine the various characters. Set near the Christmas season they are cause for celebration.

Lori Wilde can’t remember a time when she didn’t want to write. She even went to nursing school so she could have a schedule flexible enough to allow her to write on the side. She nursed for 20 years, working in a variety of settings from the newborn nursery to the recovery room, to dialysis. But she never lost her desire to write.

She sold her first book in 1994 to Silhouette Romance but later
