Read to find out. Dec 13, Phyllis Barlow rated it liked it. I only read this one because someone gave it to me. I'm happy to say I was wrong about this one. True, the tales were short, but I feel like I got a pretty good sense of the characters. I can't really pick a favorite; they all had their good points, but if I had to pick favorites, I would say The Best Husband Money Can Buy because I have always loved Regency romances, and I liked the fact that even though her "intended" was not thought of very highly, in the end he redeemed himself.
My next choice would be Boxing Day because the heroine was not some meek little year-old. We need to see more romances featuring older women. After all, we don't dry up and blow away at 30!! A very enjoyable read altogether. If you like books that feature women who know how to speak up for themselves, and men who appreciate them, you will like this one. Novellas seem to be the theme for what I read in June.
This book is another volume of four novellas, this time without the fantasy aspect and with more of the romance. All four stories were set in different historical times and places but all occurred in and around Christmas time. I really enjoyed reading the book--a very light, entertaining way to spend a day or several afternoons, rather.

Nov 27, Ilze rated it liked it Shelves: mary-jo-putney. Both had features I liked, but they were both trite and annoying in other respects, for example the omniscient Dowager Duchess in Mary Jo Putney's and the old superstitions in Susan King's, although the description of the old New Year's traditions in Scotland is interesting.
You could say that I want the cake - the old traditions - without the calories - the old superstitions -, but I guess you can't really separate the two. Didn't read the other 2. Nov 29, Marybelle rated it really liked it. A lovely compilation of stories that brings out the true meaning of love and Christmas.
My favorite is "The Light in the Window" where two strangers learn how to let go the pain of the past, and face a new future together. The fact that it's so funny doesn't hurt either. This book is a keeper, that you'll want to visit every Christmas, again and again. May 11, Fedora rated it really liked it. A very lovely collection of holiday stories--they pretty much all hit the spot for me. Some themes I'm especially fond of--an older woman who's "on the shelf," a plain sister stepping in to care for her sister's orphaned son, a plain woman who comes into an unexpected inheritance and deciding to buy herself the groom of her dreams I'm keeping this collection to reread :.
