Again, because Megan and Gideon play roles in so many stories - I would have liked so much more! I'm not a fan of these smaller stories. We've fallen in love with both the DePiaget and the MacLeod Families' that I think each character deserves a full story.

A VERY short story. Felt much shorter than Kurland's other short stories. But that was fine with me. I finished it quickly. I do wish that she would have had it take place over at least a couple weeks though. I never think it's very believable when people fall in love in only about 2 days and then literally get engaged and start planning their future. I mean, come on. A week ago, you didn't even know this guy. Come on.

But other than that, I did like this sweet story. Two people, both current day

A Christmas romance anthology. All the stories involve a ghost or spirit of some kind.

Lynn Kurland's THE THREE WISE GHOSTS was the first story, and one I'd tried in another collection. You either like this author or you don't. Personally, I find her humor too forced and silly for my taste. DNF.

The second story was KEEPING FAITH by Casey Claybourne. I loved it. While a short story (less than 70 pages!) the author managed to tug on my heartstrings. This was a story about a husband and wife who had

Short story that is just OK. Three ghost great great great...grandparents work to bring together their descendents.

The second story was too heartbreaking. Made me cry but I could have done without reading this.

I really don't care for novellas. I don't believe in the love in two days stories. Nor do I care much for the characters in these short story.
The only reason I have read these is to continue with the storyline.

Ok. Mixed feelings about this. I liked the first and last best. The others had too many references for me.

Another wonderful read by Lynn Kurland!! As always, I was begging for more and wishing it was a full 300pg book by the time I was done. :)

Lynn began her writing career at the tender age of five with a series of illustrated novellas entitled Clinton’s Troubles in which the compelling hero found himself in all sorts of . . . well, trouble. She was living in Hawaii at the time and the scope for her imagination (poisoned fish, tropical cliffs, large spiders) was great and poor Clinton bore the brunt of it.
