The Christmas Gazebo depicted the historical and current fictional town of Springlake, Florida; although, some of the history is partially based on the actual town of DeFuniak, Florida. The realistic happenings and dedication of the Townsend family to their town gave way to delightful tales. .

The Christmas Gift by Marilyn Turk brought Loretta Morgan and Jonathan Townsend together when he spied her taking pictures by the lake. This story had a lot of twists and turns with a train robbery, perfor

I’ve read a number of Christmas stories, but I don’t think I’ve ever read one set in Florida. It was a nice change. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a “white Christmas,” but I wouldn’t mind celebrating one warm-weathered green Christmas. I could do that, in a way, with this book.

These two novellas are by different authors, but they work so well together, making this a quick, entertaining read. The stories take place in the past and present, in the fictional town of Springlake, Florida. S

I just read an advance copy of this book. What a delightful book! It was a fun, easy read and held my attention throughout. I read the book through in one sitting. Housework can wait, right!?! Marilyn Turk and Lenora Worth did an amazing job weaving together their two stories set decades apart but in the same setting. The characters seemed so real, and I did not want their stories to end. This would be a great book to leave in your guest bedroom for your holiday guests to read!

Perfect Time Travel of Sorts

Love the way the 2 time period stories come together. The carving in the gazebo is perfect for both time periods. Amazing how 2 different authors captured the romance of 2 different periods within 1 family.
I received this book as a gift for my honest review.

I love books set in non-traditional Christmas settings (Florida) and this one fits the bill. Written by two highly talented authors, the two stories blend seamlessly and make for a fun and enjoyable read. As I was reading it, I couldn't help but think this would make a wonderful Hallmark movie! Grab a copy! ...more

This was such a good book. I loved that the two stories happened over a century apart in the same setting. I loved the sweet story of Jonathon and Lettie and also that of Jon and Lynsey. I would recommend this book any time of the year, not just at Christmas.
