Aaah! So good! A must-read for fans of AK’s Poplar Falls series. AK almost seamlessly transitions chapter to chapter going from each past hero & heroine to the next plus a few we’ve yet to get a personal POV from before. Merry Hearts nails it giving all the feels with a seasonal backdrop in this brief Christmas novella. Make no mistake, she didn’t forget to add some sexy - um, Charlotte & Payne = HOLY HOTNESS BATMAN! -. Now she must finally write Charlotte & Payne’s book, as well a

Super sweet Poplar Falls holiday novella!

A nice little holiday visit to Poplar Falls. We get to see a bit of holiday fun with each of the couples from the series and even from some of the series favorite side characters. Just a fun and sweet treat for anyone who has read the first four books of the series!!

Well this was just all kinds of pleasant. I love when authors do these little extras for the holidays and this was extra special as it included a little snipet from everyone in this entire series. I really hooe the author continues as there are still many more characters I'm anticipating stories from 😍😍 ...more

Exactly as the acknowledgements states at the end, this truly is a love letter for fans of the Poplar Falls series.

Set during the holiday season, it follows the core four couples plus a few special additions. With each chapter following a different character, I loved the brief glimpses into wedding planning, raising babies, living happily-ever-after, and new beginnings. Filled with romantic gestures from the beloved heroes, my heart is absolutely full of Christmas bliss. As each book is released
I love holiday novellas, and even more when it's not the holiday season. The charlottepayne's chapters omg!!! I just know that they are going to be my favorite couple of the series ...more

DNF @ 36% this is just so not for me.
Part of this is my bad. I picked this up without reading anything else in this series so I didn't know any of the characters, which I'm wasn't helpful. However, after reading this I most certainly will not be reading any more. I did not enjoy the characters at all. The gender roles in this book are sooo traditional and I hate that. Women are referred to as "female" which is something I cannot stand, there was a good bit of talk about how men and women are jus

Such a cute novella about all of our favorites! I would love to have more books in this series. I need to see Elle and Walker’s wedding, Charlotte and Payne, and hopefully Sonia and Foster’s story.
If you’ve been following along with the Poplar Falls series, you will thoroughly enjoy catching up with the PF crew in this very festive holiday story. We bounce around perspectives from character to character and see what they’re up to for the holidays. I sure hope Amber Kelly has some more books planned for this series because I’m not done reading about this town yet! 4/5 stars.

why aren’t extended holiday novellas an actual thing yet? like every author should write holiday novellas for their couples— okay thank you.

Adorable holiday novella, it's always nice to Poplar Falls. ...more

Why do I torture myself like this? 😭 How is it possible that a holiday novella can still feel like it's all over the place with nothing new actually being shared? When Vivian and the aunts got chapters I was like, 'Nah, I'm out.'

I'm officially done with Amber Kelly.

The holidays are the perfect time to reconnect with those characters we all fell in love with and Amber Kelly does not disappoint with this holiday novella surrounding Poplar Falls. The reader gets a glimpse into everyone's HEA - babies, houses, marriages, beginnings and even reconnections and forgiveness is added into the storyline. You do not want to miss this!! ...more

All. The. Feels.

Seriously though, I read this Christmas special in April and I still got all of the holiday feels from it.

I’m so not ready to say goodbye to this precious crazy bunch…. I know this was released before Foster & Sophias book , but I read it first … and I’m not sorry… I’ve binge read this series in a matter of days . I’ve lost more sleep this week than I have I’m forever but I’m addicted to this family… They’re the true meaning of family and proof that blood doesn’t make you family, love does ..
Amanda (Romance Reviewed)
Short novella set around Christmas that follows each of the couples so far from the series, as well as a handful of the side characters. It reads more like an extended epilogue for each instead of a novella that stands on its own merit, but satisfying if you've read the rest of the series. ...more

I loved all this individual stories of all the characters from Popular Falls with leading up to Christmas. This stories and characters just warms my heart. I love how they are always there for each other no matter what and even help strangers if needed. Love this series!

This was a cute catch up on all the couples but some extra people from all the previous books. It was a good novella but also not the most exciting, hence the three star rating. If you have read the other books I would still recommend reading this.
