A little while ago, I decided that I wasn't going to be reading any more of this type of anthology. There are far too many out there where there are just one or two novellas that I really enjoy and then the rest are just a bit rubbish. I'm happy to report that that was far from the case with Love in the Lowcountry.
This collection is quite eclectic, with every style of romance imaginable included, from paranormal to contemporary, couples meeting for the first time, to old lovers reconnecting. Th

Love in the Lowcountry is a sweet and heartwarming collection of winter themed stories conveniently in one nice package deal. I loved the vast array of novels that cover many genres from paranormal to the second chance romance. I am going to leave a little tidbit about the sweet second chance romance novella, Poinsettias for Carly by Michele Sims, an already favorite author of mine.

I loved that the title, Poinsettias for Carly also mentions A past unresolved is never the past… I feel like that

The story that I want to review is Poinsettias for Carly by Michele Sims. It is a book that intertwines the past and present. It is a story that had my emotions going up and down the entire time that I read it. This is a book that although isn’t very long, had my attention from the beginning to the last page. It has heartwarming scenes and I found myself with a smile on my f

Love in the Lowcountry (A Winter Holiday Collection Book 1) Featuring Poinsettias for Carly by Michele Sims. This is a awesome collection but I LOVE Michele Sims so I focused on her short story! Its a second chance love story about a girl named Carly who finds out her old home is being torn down and she confronts the one guy who still has her heart. Its a story so full of emotion and love that you will zip through it so fast. Its a feel good Christmas story so get you a cup of cocoa and a blanke ...more

This is a great collection of stories that will warm your heart right to your soul. There is a little bit of everything from romance to paranormal. Each story is unique, engaging and well written. You will find stories about keeping secrets, about confronting the past, second chances and more. You will find a favorite among these as well as meet a new author or two. I highly recommend this holiday collection set, they will keep you warm on a cold night.

I give Love in the Lowcountry (A Winter Holiday Collection Book 1), 4 stars.

This is a great collection of Christmas romance stories. What makes it stand out is that there are multiple subgenres of romance, such as contemporary romance and paranormal romance. This makes it even more interesting in my opinion, you never what what you're going to get next.

While there are many good stories in here, I want to focus on Poinsettias for Carly by Michele Sims. It takes two main characters who were really

Love in the Lowcountry (A Winter Holiday Collection Book 1) is a varied and exciting collection of books by some fantastic authors. This collection definitely has something for everyone and Ioved how from story to story you got something entirely different.
I started out reading this anthology mainly for Michele Sims. This is an author that I had read previous works of and have always enjoyed. However, once I got the book I couldn’t stop myself from delving into the rest of the work and I can def

This Winter Holiday Collection has a little bit of everything!

Poinsettias for Carly by Michele Sims is a pretty ok and sweet story. It’s a quick short story about 2 kids growing up together until a tragic accident and a few misunderstandings cause hurt feelings and repressed love. All this information is gathered in flash backs. Those same kids are grown-ups now and are meeting again for the first time in many years. As they reminisce, they rediscover their love for each other.

Wonderful anthology!

I have to admit to never having read any of these authors before. I picked it up because of my love of the lowcountry and interest in Charleston. But it was a real treat to read! I enjoyed every story.

Some of the stories I loved, some I just liked, and a couple left me baffled. But overall it was a very good collection of lowcountry romance stories.
