This was such a fun Christmas anthology! Each story takes place in the small town of Snow Valley, MT. The town really goes all out to celebrate Christmas and it was fun to see each book focus on different events that go on around the town. Each story can stand on it's own, but it was fun to see the appearances of some of the characters show up in the different books. A great way to get you in the mood for Christmas.

I absolutely loved this book! I've discovered that I enjoy books that build on each other. Each of these stories takes place in Snow Valley, Montana and deals with different characters. I loved seeing a brief glimpse of characters from one of the other books. Pastor John is a constant character in each of the stories and he's such a great man. I love the way all these characters are connected to him.

Snow Valley is a place that goes all out for the month of December. Instead of having their carni

Such a fun Clean Contemporary Romance read! I love the idea of second chances---and this book is full of those! Love it!
I loved all of these stories! I could imagine each one of them as a Hallmark movie. There's new love, old love rekindled, people new to Snow Valley, people returning and people who can't seem to get far enough away! I love how hearts were changed and opened to allow new people in. I also love that they had one character who was in each story--Pastor John. He was more visible in some stories than in others and thought they did a great job of keeping him consistent.

Hallmark Movie Style Romance--In a Good Way! I think the best way to review this collection of stories is by adding my comments after each synopsis. I'll give each individual story a rating and then a rating for the collection as a whole.
My 1-5 scale and what it means:1: I couldn’t even finish it / just plain bad2: I hope I didn’t pay for this / disappointing3: I didn’t hate it, but it was still missing something / forgettable but inoffensive3.5: On the line between good and ok / like, not love4

This is going down on my list of favorite Christmas books that I can reread each year. I thought all of the stories were great, but I particularly enjoyed Cindy Roland Anderson's and Cami Checkett's. I loved how the stories linked up with town events and characters in common. I loved the traditional Christmas setting, and the sweet contemporary romances.

Brilliant collection of Christmas themed novella's.

I always promise myself every year to read more festive themed book, so when I was asked to Promote this anthology on my blog it was a perfect one to read and review too. I think the last book I read and totally loved with a "Christmassey" theme was Dash And Lily's Book Of Dare's, which I loved. I'm totally looking forward to this anthology as some of the authors are also totally new to me. I think anthologie

This was a very fun and sweet holiday collection! I definitely liked some of the stories more than the others, but overall it was a great and enjoyable read. There were some inspirational moments and I really loved how Pastor John was such a part of the town and the characters' lives in some way. The town was really cute and I loved all the Christmas traditions. I also loved that the small town feel definitely came across in each story. Here's what I thought about each one:

Christmas atmosphere with snow indeed, romance, cherish and many great main characters will find in this anthology. Everything is perfect folded in such a great atmosphere of Christmas, when everybody rushes at their homes to see their family and be with them for holidays, also everybody rushes to buy presents and decorations and decorate their homes.

Lucy can’t believe she resorted to kissing a stranger just to avoid an ex. How desperate is that? But she’s not looking to move back to snow valley now is she interested in any man – but especially not the one her mother thinks she should be with.
Review: Loved it. Very sweet but I thought it was a bit rushed.

Christmas in Snow Valley, my thoughts on book 1 An Unexpected Kiss by Cindy Roland Anderson:

Currently I have only read book one, of the Christmas in Snow Valley series. However, that is not from lack of interest in this book series. An Unexpected Kiss by Cindy Roland Anderson is a page turner at its best! Author Anderson puts the reader, (me in this case), the mood for the holiday season. Snow Valley is a small town, Lucy Phillips the main character used to be a small town girl. Lucy has moved t

What a FUN Set! Here is my review of each book~

An Unexpected Kiss by Cindy Roland Anderson
This book is the PERFECT one to start off the series! You are introduced to the town's festivities and some of the people. CUTE, CUTE story line! Love and kissing are wrapped up with the Christmas spirit of giving...which makes for a VERY FUN story!

Feels Like Love by Jeanette Lewis
This WONDERFUL series continues with April coming home to Snow Valley. Coming home to childhood memories is special and magical
If you are looking for a fun light-hearted read to get you in the Christmas Spirit, then this box set is a great choice. These short stories written by several different authors are all independent stories that take place around the same small town. I loved as I read the stories that even though they were each stand alone, there were little characters or elements that overlapped. It makes you stop and think about how much is going on around you when you are busy living your own life.

Oh, I love, love, loved this collection of novellas! I have read several anthologies in the last month and I think this was my favorite of them all.

There are a couple authors that I already know and love writing in this collection and a couple I will be checking out further. I love how each book revolved around the same small town at Christmas but each book had it's own flavor. I was transported to Snow Valley and I loved every minute of it. What a fun, romantic getaway!

I read Blue Christmas by Lucy McConnell. Paisley has been burned before and when Clay comes to the tree lighting, she is immediately smitten, and tries to talk herself out of liking him. Clay left suddenly when they were younger and no one had heard from him since. Paisley didn't want to have her heart broken again from someone who wasn't staying in Snow Valley.

I was instantly brought into this fun story by Lucy. Paisley was so funny! Her inner voice had me smiling and, at times, laughing out l

I have struggled with writing this review. I wanted to be able to give this a five star rating. I loved it and the stories were well written for the most part other than a few editing errors. What upset me was the use of swear words when this series had a spiritual thread through it. I was offended by the use of them. Even though there weren't many. I can not in good conscience give it a 5 or even a 4 star. I hate to penalize all the authors in this collection, but I see no other way around it.

This was a great set. I enjoyed most of it one had an extra that I didn't feel was even really needed and the last one blue christmas seemed like a young inexperienced writer. She had two names for one person. It may have been an auto correct but it happened several times. I knew it was the same person so I would skip it but it was still annoying. It needed edited as well. All in all this set for .99 was a great bargain fun, fast and mostly clean. The word sex was in it talking about the past an ...more

I loved reading this set, it was cute, sweet, clean romance and I’m a sucker for that. I have no complaints exactly, some of the romances happened too quickly for me to buy into the story, but overall they were so much fun and definitely put me into the Christmas spirit.

This is a collection of 6 novellas.

1. The Unexpected Kiss - loved it. I laughed all the way through. With lines like "Hi I'm Lucy, please kiss me now" or "Some stupid guy kissed me" or "All I want for Christmas is Cole", how could I not laugh. Okay maybe those lines don't seem funny by the themselves, but trust me in the proper context they become funny. I would read this story again.

2. Feels Like Love - This was just okay. Even though April and Scott didn't feel like the right fit for each oth
