Christmas Kisses: An Echo Ridge Anthology (Echo Ridge Romance Book 1) Kindle Edition
The Candy Counter Heiress by Lucy McConnell Amazon bestseller
Someday Reese Gates will own The Candy Counter at Kenworth's; but someday can't come fast enough when the manager threatens to bring in a national candy provider. Reese secretly takes matters into her own hands hoping to save her parents from additional worry and prove herself capable of running the company. Her deception deepens as she ropes computer guru Andy Edwards into helping her expand the business. Reese wanted to shake things up, but she wasn't planning on her heart getting caught in the mix by Andy's stolen kisses. If she can hold it together until after Christmas, then she can reveal her successful online company and her feelings for Andy. Unfortunately for Reese, even the best laid plans can melt like chocolate.
Christmas Makeover by Cami Checketts Amazon bestseller
Chelsea Jamison has been infatuated with Drew Stirling longer than she's loved playing basketball, high-top sneakers, and the Knicks. Unfortunately, all Drew sees is the kid who kicked his trash in the high school free throw contest and not the girl whose heart breaks into a fast dribble when he's near.
Drew makes an unexpected visit home to Echo Ridge and their friendship picks up where they left off as they scheme to make a teenaged boy's Christmas dreams come true. When Chelsea realizes she's fallen for her best friend, she wonders if there is any hope of a relationship with Drew or if she's stuck in buddy-status for life.
Hope for Christmas by Rachelle J. Christensen Amazon bestseller
Anika Fletcher hates Christmas--its promises of good tidings and hope for the future are as tinseled as the ornaments on Kenworth's Hope Tree. Despite her feelings, Anika wants to maintain her daughter's faith in the magic of the season and gladly accepts a second job working with the handsome Carlos Rodriguez to restore Kenworth's old fashioned soda fountain. Carlos is no stranger to hard times and slowly shares his life of light and joy with Anika as they work together. Just as her fragile soul begins to feel hope again, an ill-timed act of charity changes everything. Anika isn't sure who she can trust or if hope is worth nurturing--especially at Christmas when it's easy to enjoy a kiss and believe love can last longer than the season.
Soda Fountain Christmas by Connie E. Sokol Amazon bestseller
Keira Kenworth has one focus this holiday season: save her father's old-time department store from bankruptcy. She is not focused on Tayton Wells, the tall, dark, and genius marketing guru from downtown New York, hired to make it happen. He is as doubtful that her nostalgic connect-the-town ideas will succeed as she is about his numbers-first plan. However, it's not just their different approaches that cause sparks to fly. Working together on a fast deadline to save the store before Christmas, the unspoken connection between them grows. But will the tough decisions they face drive them back to their separate worlds, or will they lead to the beginning of love?
One Winter Night by Heather Tullis Amazon bestselling author
Jonah Owens thought moving to Echo Ridge to open his art gallery would solve all of his problems. The need to sell his grandma's house adds an unexpected complication. It would be easier if his neighbor didn't have all those farm animals.
Kaya Feidler's family has owned their land for nearly a hundred years--long before the neighbors were there. There's no way she's giving up the animal therapy business she's been struggling to make profitable. She gets a temp job helping Jonah in the gallery. Spending time together is a recipe for romance, but can they overcome their own hangups to be more than friends?

I am becoming a huge fan of Lucy McConnell's books! I loved this story. It was so fun, playful, and festive. What a great way to start out the set of novellas! If you are a big chocolate or Christmas fan then this is definitely one for you! All of Lucy's books have me hooked from the first page and I don't want to put them down until I'm done.
Christmas Makeover By: Cami Checketts
This story had me bawling like a baby at the end. It was such a sweet story. Chelsea reminded me a lot of me. I've never been one into dressing up or makeup and all that really girly stuff. And I have always loved basketball. My hubs is like Drew and always has accepted me for who I am and loved me anyway :) I love Cami's books I always feel I can relate to them and she pulls me in. It makes it so great because I feel I can connect so well with the characters. As always Cami great job!
Hope for Christmas By: Rachelle J. Christensen
Keeping the true meaning of Christmas in check is so important to me. I raised my kids without the belief in Santa to make sure that the true meaning of Christmas is remember every year. I loved this story especially the ending and the lessons learned. I'm reading this mid-October but this was a good story to help me remember to stay focus on what's really important in this upcoming holiday season! This was my favorite line and perfect ending for this story, "God loved her, and He sent her someone at Christmas—the time of the Savior’s birth to open her eyes and give her hope for Christmas."
Soda Fountain Christmas by: Connie E. Sokol
What a great story about 2 people who realize they can't live apart. I love how Keira and Tayton are always building each other up and helping each other out. That is what great relationships are made of! This was a great addition to this set of books!
One Winter Night by Heather Tullis
This was another great story. I have read a lot from Heather and always love her stuff. My favorite line from this story was, "Nothing really great, really worthwhile, happens without hard work.” I didn't feel like the one had as many ties into the characters of the other stories and I could even remember the main characters mentioned in the other books but I still loved it and it was a good ending to an awesome set of books by great Authors!
Each one of the stories in this collection revolves around Kenworth's Department Store, and the people who work there, with some of the characters appearing in other other stories, which I liked.
I loved the description of Kenworth's, and it reminded me of some of the department stores when I was very young, even though I didn't grow up in a small town. I'm old enough to remember when some of them had candy counters that sold chocolates that were made in small batches, not national brands, already packaged. I also remember the window displays the stores had, especially at Christmas time, and the huge tree they would have, and the special area set aside for visits and pictures with Santa.
Each novella stands alone although some of the characters cross over from other stories. I can't pick a favorite because they're all different. They're all clean romances and will make you feel all the good feelings the Christmas season brings. I read it after Christmas but before Valentine's Day and I still felt all warm inside.
I like anthologies because I get to read stories by authors I know and love, but I also get to find new authors too.
Caution: do not read THE CANDY COUNTER HEIRESS if you're hungry--I could almost smell the caramel and chocolate. 😊
