Format: Mass Market Paperback
This collection includes three previously published stories ("Carrie", "Raylene", and "Christine") and one new one ("Grace"), featuring the couple from the very first book in the series, Flynn and Jesse. I've read two other books in the Twilight, Texas series previously, but you don't have to have read them to follow the stories in this collection.

Read all together, the stories are perhaps not as effective as they would be if read on their own--having three stories in a row all stressing the "you'll marry your high school sweetheart" legend stretched its credibility a bit, if you're in a critical mood. Actually, more than one major plot point in these four stories depends on some pretty convenient coincidences, so if you are feeling critical, you might just want to steer clear.

If you're just looking for a cute and fluffy holiday read, though, you've come to the right place.

I thought the two middle stories, "Raylene" and "Christine" were definitely the strongest narratives of the group; I never did warm up to the two main characters of "Carrie", and "Grace" was too short to really engage me--though perhaps if I had read Flynn and Jessie's novel first, I would have felt differently. Actually, my favorite story in the book wasn't even that of a title character--the main romance in "Raylene" wasn't even that of Ray and Earl, but instead featured Raylene's long-lost daughter Shannon and her new beau Nate. Though I was definitely pulling for Ray and Earl to reunite, Shannon and Nate were by far my favorite romance in the whole collection.

As holiday reads go, these stories are cute but somewhat lacking in substance.

The Christmas Cookie Collection by Lori Wilde is all four Christmas novellas based on her highly popular Twilight, Texas series. Each is filled with tales of love and center around the town's claim to fame: the Sweetheart Legend.
Novella #1 Carrie:

Carrie MacGregor has never gotten over her first love Mark Leland. He left their hometown of Twilight and never looked back, becoming a hotshot television personality in L.A. When his job brings him back to town, the attraction between Mark and Carrie burns just as hot as it did in high school. They struggle to rein in their emotions knowing that a reconciliation wouldn't work, given that their lives are so different now. But are they really looking for different things after all?

Novella #2 Raylene:

Raylene's husband, Earl, walked out on her last Christmas after learning a secret Raylene kept from him for over three decades: she had a daughter that she gave up and has never seen. Devastated by her husband's disappearance, Raylene prays he will return so they can work things out. When a mysterious woman applies for a job at the Horny Toad bar, owner Raylene wonders just what Shannon is hiding. Things aren't adding up and even handsome Nate Deavers takes notice of Shannon and her secrets. Just when Raylene thinks she has solved the puzzle, more surprises come her way that may change her life forever.'

Novella #3 Christine:

Christmas this year is going to be difficult for Christine. Her parents are overseas, she just lost her beloved cat Cocoa, and she received some disappointing health news. Things finally begin to look up when her high school crush Eli walks into her bakery. Fate has given them the opportunity to be together so Eli jumps at the chance to take Christine out on a date.

I bought the collection as a read for vacation downtime. I enjoyed each one. Raylene my favorite of the 4. Some of the story line is predictible but I know that going in being an avid reader. I think anyone who likes to read would enjoy the quick reads these provide.

Lori Wilde really brings out the heartfelt warmth of Christmas with this collection of Twilight Novellas. I am not sure which story I enjoyed more, a Second Chance Romance, a New Romance and New Relationship between mother and daughter, a Second Chance Romance with a Chance at a Family, or the Sweet Delivery of Baby Grace.

Each story made my heart feel lighter, as the pages just flew by, until I was at the end and I wanted to read it over again. If you are a Fan of Small-Town Romance, Lori Wilde's Twilight Texas Series is a must read, and this novella is a Must Read for the season!!
