Two fantastic romantic stories all bundled up in a sweet little book. I love these characters, especially Jill's daughter. I could relate to Jill, her insecurities and her fear about taking a step into the unknown. Jack was a pain to me, but he was also endearing. For Jill's sake, I wanted to see things work out for them. Of course we have to wade through the office politics and other roadblocks getting in their way, but I think the kiddo has it all figured out before the adults even get a clue. ...more

Paper Wishes is the first book that I have read by Jennifer M. Eaton and I must say it was well done. This book is a two story set of short stories that tell the tale of love and romance during the holiday season. This was a fun Christmas read that I read in one sitting. I enjoyed the characters and the author included enough back story to help you relate to them all, while making the magic of Christmas and New Year’s make everything seem possible.

In this story we meet the lovely, Jill who after

This is a very sweet little romance of two stories bundled together for one great book. It’s also holiday related so it’s a perfect quick, sweet, fun read! There’s two short stories telling you about some romance during the holidays.

I loved that even if you’ve never read anything from this author, or know who these characters are, when you read this one, the writing is done so you feel like you already know. :) That means the writing is excellent.

It’s very heartwarming, it’s so great to share

This novella is broken into two separate stories about the same couple, Jack and Jill. I enjoyed the read. The characters were dynamic and engaging.
It didn't earn five stars because I couldn't fully understand Jill's personality and hesitance. Her thoughts and actions weren't exactly contradictory, but rang false with me.
The first half about the paper Christmas stars was wonderful. A perfect holiday story for anyone who likes a little romance with their Christmas spirit.
The second story is where

Excellent romantic story. Clean, wholesome, sweet, affectionate. Just a beautiful story with a more than satisfying ending, the kind that makes you go 'awww' and maybe even bring on a happy tear or two. I can't recommend it enough. ...more

Cute story about Jack and Jill (gotta love those names). I appreciated the moral of the story, and how Jill sticks to her values even when faced with losing out on love. This novella was fun to read with characters that worked their way into my heart. Well done!

Two stories about long-term friends whose relationship moves to the next level but not before misunderstandings and third parties threaten to undo their coming together. Throw in a precocious pre-teen daughter and a fun Christmas ritual of turning written wishes into ornaments, and the book offers an enjoyable holiday tale. The writing style is breezy and the pace brisk. I could easily see this as a holiday movie. A fun way to spend an hour or two.

Jack and Jill Volume One by Jennifer M. Eaton is a contemporary romance set during the holidays. The holidays, a time when the world hopes for peace and happiness. These hopes are encapsulated in the lives of Jack, Jill, and her daughter Nicole. But within that hope shines important beliefs that should be maintained even if the world thinks otherwise. Therein lies the twist to this contemporary romance. You won’t be disappointed.

Jennifer M. Eaton hails from the eastern shore of the North American Continent on planet Earth. Yes, regrettably, she is human, but please don’t hold that against her.

While not traipsing through the galaxy looking for specimens for her space moth collection, she lives with her wonderfully supportive husband and three energetic offspring. (And a poodle who runs the spaceport when she’s not around.)
