I was reading this book on my kindle while my kids were listening to some Christmas music. What a great way to get into the Christmas Spirit!

When I first started reading this book, which I was given to review, I was expecting some fluffy feel-good stories all based around people learning to embrace Christmas. Instead I was pleasantly surprised to find some very well written short stories that address real challenges that people face around the holidays; teenagers, travel, death, and work. All pa

MUSIC & MISTLETOE: 3.5 stars - Took me a bit to get into this one, but I actually really enjoyed this different little love short story in the end. Gentry and Luke were pretty cute together.

BROTHER CHRISTMAS: 2.5 stars -- Had a harder time getting into this one.... The story was ok, but I had a harder time understanding Chase's reactions...or rather overreactions.

THE BEST GIFT EVER: 2 s

I think this book is an amazing collection. I am really impressed with a newer writer Jessica Salyer. Her story was relevant and stayed interested the whole story and had a twist at the end I had no idea was coming. I enjoyed all but especially hers! I highly recommend!

This was not my favorite collection of Christmas stories. There is a swearing warning. Swearing in Christmas stories? Is nothing sacred? Ah well. That's my soapbox. Music and Mistletoe was definitely worth the purchase alone. Brother Christmas was also very touching.

I truly enjoyed each of these stories!

Each one had its own special tale to tell. Between first loves, first kisses, loosing loved ones, learning to live again, and finding your own Christmas, these stories were great!

I couldn't get enough! I wanted more of each one:) All of these authors did a great job. I did like that fact that they were all so different. Not only in the stories themselves, but in the emotions that they bring. I'll admit that a couple of them made me tear up a bit, because I u
