    1. I bought this because it was written by a Christian author and because it took place in Connecticut, where my husband & I lived for many years.I was very disappointed.The Christian presence in the book is overwhelming & preachy. The stories are cheesy as a result.Sorry! That's my take!

    2. This anthology contains four sweet Christmas novellas. All four are set in Snowbound Village, Connecticut and are connected through the small town shopping mall. Each of the heroines has some kind of Christmas collection that connects them to the hero in the story. Good faith thread through each of the novellas.Sarah's Prayer by Diane Ashley - Nick has broken off with his girlfriend Delia because he believes God's word that Nick should not be yoked with an unbeliever. Delia collects all things S [...]

    3. Except for the first short story, which I found overly preachy, I was able to overlook the religious references peppered throughout the other three, enough to enjoy a little light romance with a holiday feeling. This is definitely fluff, but worth the read if you're looking to get into the holiday spirit.

    4. All four stories center around a quaint New England town of Snowbound Village. Several work at the Village Mall while the others just shop there, but all will visit the Christmas Collectible shop and each will find true love before the season is over. Each story is faith-filled which I loved. My very favorite was the 3rd story, Stuck on You by Rhonda Gibson. It's about a children's book author who approaches an artist for the use of some of his art in her books. I got tickled because Sheila, the [...]

    5. I have read this one many times. Mostly in winter time to put me in the Christmas mood. Very good book.(Edit: 12/29/13)I adore these short stories. I try to read it every year around Christmas. I just finished reading it again. I thought it would be appropriate for me to say in this review, these stories are heavily coated with religious aspects. I know some readers don't like to read stories with mentions of Christianity. With all that said, I still love this book as much as the first time I re [...]

    6. This was not my cup of tea. Way to heavy-handed on the religion part, but I know several people who would really appreciate it. I had just been talking to my sister about how much better written Christian fiction has gotten in the last ten or fifteen years. This book set back my theories.

    7. This was a truly enjoyable book! I usually don't care much for the short stories, but in this book, the 4 stories tie together and take place in the same village, share characters, locations, etc. I enjoyed the Christian aspect of this book - very inspirational! Well done!!

    8. This was a gift from a well meaning bookcrossing friend. The problem is I don't read romance, I hate drivel, and the books are "Christian" . They are also so poorly written, with awful stilted dialogue and improbable scenarios to go with them. yuk yuk yuk!

    9. Two stars? Yes, because even though they were inspirational and easy-to-read for the busy season, they were too predictable and "fruity."

    10. Good, wholesome book. Very predictable. "Chick flick" book. But a nice "feel good" book for the holiday season.

    11. Oh man. Well, cheesy. Light, quick reads. The first story is so preachy and in-your-face, the rest weren't bad.
