Now that I know whom these woman are I found it even more full bodied with it having grown to the next level. Juliet is getting ready for her wedding with Colton being even more busy than ever. Her and her friends really have their hands full everything has taken off and growing more and more. Just by chance though Juliet running errands comes across information on a program offered to give women with di ...more

ALWAYS AND FOREVER
This story is a continuation on the Forever Christmas series from 2014 that was four stories that correlated by four authors, but each story will read as a standalone. We see the friends from last season and add new ones, a group of ladies who are chosen for a second chance in life after mishaps that placed them in a homeless shelter. These four ladies find new homes and jobs with Annie, Lindsay, Juliet and Adelaide.
Ivy Harper has had a hard life, but she is a survivor and doi

This year we find Ivy and Mason fleeing for different, yet similar reasons to the same setting that Colton (Mason's brother) embraced as home in the first book...Christmas Reflections.. of Forever Christmas . In this lovely story, Ms. Jaytanie weaves susp ...more

Christmas Ivy is a sweet romance taking place at a Christmas tree farm/inn/unique craft workshop called Christmas Forever. I would love to spend time at Christmas Forever and be friends with the ladies who own it. It is a magical place.

This short story was well-written and highly enjoyable. The romance between Ivy and Mason was sweet and gentle. No alpha male and feisty heroine. Just two everyday people becoming friends and falling in love. To me, that is beautiful.

I definitely recommend reading

I wish I could give this beautiful story a 10. Joanne brought me to Seattle. Then to the incredible Christmas tree farm. I swear I could see it all. The trees, the decorations, snow, smell the food. And see the brilliance of the stained glass. This the second book. But it stands alone. I cried it was so beautiful. And heart wrenching. And again because of the beauty of true love. I wasn't ready for Christmas. After reading this amazingly beautiful story. I came away with the Christmas spirit. An ...more

Ivy Harper really needs a chance at starting over after a spell of bad luck has really headed her way. She is offered a chance with the Life Bridges program and knows if she can stick it out fo
