This collection of Christmas stories are heartwarming and entertaining. Whether the characters are single, parents, or old friends these stories are full of love, togetherness, and acceptance of people even with their quirks. Great Christmas read!!

It is time for the holidays and what better than to listen to some holiday audios that will put you in the holiday mood. This is a set of stories that are touching, fun filled with romance and laughter with a little pain until they work it all out.
The Christmas Catch
Is a story of a woman who lost her husband before her baby was born. For many years she did it alone not looking for love which may bring more pain. She spent all her time with her son giving him all the love she had that is until

The Christmas Catch – Ginny Baird
A beautiful tear-jerker, this short Christmas love story will melt even the coldest of hearts. Needing to restore her relationship with her young son, and replenish her own heart with the love of life, Christine is sent on a holiday that is about to change her life, by her boss and best friend, Ellen. Never could she have imagined just how much her heart needed this trip. When he was practically run off the road, John never realized to what extent Fate would go

This wonderful collection of stories by Ginny Baird contains the first four books in her Holiday Brides Series. These were all wonderfully sweet romantic stories that I could not put down. I have a special fondness for Christmas stories so all of these stories hold a special place in my heart.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Enjoyed the series. It's a little over 90 days before Christmas. Let's start early getting in the mood.
Enjoyed the series. All were happily ever afters.

Book #1 When Christine heart broke, I started crying.
Book #2 A very Hallmark type of story.
Book #3 A fantasy. If only this could happen.
Book #4 Dreams can come true...they have plenty of money to travel and do what they want when you don't have kids who seem to need it.

Holiday Brides are wonderful to read all year long!

I love reading love stores and when there are Brides involved. .. oh give me the books please!! Ginny Baird has given us 4 of her Holiday Bride novellas in this collection and they are each one oh so good. Sweet stories of love at Christmastime make me happy, all year long. This is a collection I personally will be reading again and again.

Reviewed each book separately. Wasn't impressed with the stories, and the kids seemed to have issues. One kid does things on a computer that are surely going to get him arrested at some point, another child makes up stories constantly, another kid employs his creepy grandma to trick his father, another one had his phone practically surgically attached to his hand. I know that is true of kids these days, but c'mon, grow a spine and limit its use!!

I don't know if it's just because I had such a connection to a previously read book, or if I just am not in the mood for a novel such as this one- but I did not feel the pull to this novel that I normally do when I am reading a new novel. I will definitely have to try again later.

There are many ways to meet the one you are looking for love and marriage to unite the two. You need to realize how to tell if you feel they are special and if you will be able be sure their feelings are the same about you. Holidays have a special romance involved.
Angel Graham

I like that these were good, clean romances. Sometimes, it feels like sex is all that keeps couples together. This set shows a lot of really getting to know one another in each story.

Each book was a short story set during the Christmas season and finding love. The endings were a little rushed but overall they were great books.

Wow - Four great stories

This is a collection of four separate stories. All are well written, with different storylines and complex characters. This is how it should be done.

All of these stories were fun and heartwarming, but my favorite was The Holiday Bride. That one deserves 5 stars.

The Holiday Brides Collection (Books 1-4) by Ginny Baird
This book is a collection of 4 Christmas holiday novels by the same author.
The stories in this book are about Christmas and snow and traditions and finding true love.

They lived in Chicago but were house sitting for Helen, her boss and best friend. Christine

The collection contains four very different contemporary Christmas-oriented romances which, while on the one hand are devoid of graphic sexual content, nevertheless do contain sexual desires and intentions which definitely enhance the stories.

It is the second of the four that stuck out like an erupting volcano and is the one I'd like to highlight because I'm a Hallmark channel junkie. I have never-ever read a novella like The Holiday Bride because it has all the bells and whistles to become a

This is a must have for the romance readers in your life, for those of you looking for just the right gift. And for romance reader's looking to use that amazon gift card you just got as a gift, once you read one you will want to read the next and the next book! My suggestion get a cup of hot coco, a snack, and cuddle up in you favorite chair and enjoy a trip too 4 wonderful holidays. Happy reading and enjoy, I know I sure did.

These novellas are short, sweet, and more importantly, will stay with you after you've finished reading. If you're looking for something to get you in the Christmas spirit, I can tell you right now that these will be perfect for relaxing on the couch with coffee or a hot chocolate.

For me, the best of the stories is Beach Blanket Santa. Matt is definitely husband material - you'd have to admire any guy who went out of his way to make the Holidays special for his lady ;)

This would be a great set of novellas to take to the beach except that I would not do that as I don't like my Kindle to get sandy nor is the beach the perfect setting seeing as how Christmas time figures rather heavily in every story. The stories were quick and clean and I wished for a bit more in each one... I wanted to know the characters better.

Great collection of Holiday Romances. I thoroughly enjoyed all of these stories. They are quick reads. If you're a fan of romance you should grab this collection! All of the books in the Holiday Brides Series can be read as stand alone.
