As one of the authors of this anthology, I'm not going to rate it. But, that said, I love each and every one of these stories in this box set. I hope you do to.

10% of sales in the first week will be donated to St. Jude's Children's Hospital.

Happy Holidays from my family to yours,
Merry Holly (aka Marian Lanouette)

Five fun holiday stories filled with magic written by five authors that are new to me were provided for review by one of the authors. If you are looking for a selection of stories to read over the holidays that all have happily ever after endings then this book might be the one for you. The five leading ladies meet their Mr. Rights in a variety of ways including: meeting in a food court, being trapped in an elevator together, observing the robbery of a shop, plumbing problems that require a phon ...more

This is a lovely book containing 5 independent stories set during the Christmas/Chanukah period. Each story was light hearted and I found it very hard to put the book down, I read all five stories in 3 days having just finished the last one. It was especially nice to have a Chanukah story in amongst the Christmas ones and it is always nice when books contain holiday recipes after each story. I would just point out that Chanukah lasts for eight days and not seven as stated in the book.

This set of holiday stories is well worth your time to read. Every story has a touch of the magic of Christmas. You have jilted fiances, accident prone librarian, the sister that always gets fixed up, mistaken identity, crazy plumber, dashing rogues and more. All with a touch of comedy, intrigue, and of course a happy ending. Loved this set!!

Christmas stories to enjoy

All the stories in this book center around Christmas and the joy of the season. Unlikely couples, sweet and steamy stories, and lots of Yuletide bliss are found. I read it in one sitting, enjoying one story after another.

Heart-warming collection of stories of love

There has been a long and noble tradition of Christmas stories, from “The Christmas Carol” to the original one in Bethlehem and they all leave the reader with a feeling of joy and seasonal good cheer. The stories in this book are following on in that happy mould.
Each of them is a love story and no good romantic tale would be complete without a handsome hero and a beautiful love-struck heroine. There are certainly plenty of them in this entrancing collec

Season of Surprises is just what it says. Eight great stories - all of them a surprise. Eight different writers of chick lit. And what woman can resist chick lit? This is a great Christmas present for the woman reader in your family.

Fairly Good Stories, Very PoorPeoofreadinf

The plotlines and development of the stories was fair, but it seemed that there had been no proofreading whatsoever. Poor grammar, misuse of words, misspelling of many words were often very distracting.

Lovely sweet stories

A quick read but lighthearted and fun. Romance, last minute weddings and holiday cheer. You will be pleased to read these at Christmas, or anytime of the years!

Well, not exactly Hallmark.
Not clean, and definitely quick to get physical.
Easy reads for a romance fix.
If only guys existed like the main male characters!

Good reading

The books are good but a little to short, I think Barrymore chapters in each would have made them much better
