I read Once Upon a Holiday, which are three novellas at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Eve, by Anna Adams, Anna J. Stewart, and Melinda Curtis. All three were heartwarming (just like the title says) happiness tied up in a bow. Three college roommates start a company together. Each of the novellas is one of their stories. Lacey is featured in Once Upon A Thanksgiving. She has been asked to decorate the house of Micheal's grandparents. Micheal has come to convince the grandparents they can't be on their own any more. Clashing occurs between Micheal and Lacey. It's a great introduction to the town, some of it's residence and the co-owners of Boxes and Boughs.
Once Upon A Christmas features Charlotte who has been hired by two recently orphaned children. Unbeknownst to their Uncle Grant, they are trying to create the Christmas spirit that their mom would want them to have. Uncle Grant is the classic absent minded professor. He is sweet and good, but a bit clueless. With the help of Charlotte, Grant starts figuring out who and what he needs to be.
Once upon a New Year's Eve is my favorite of the three. Honestly Melinda Curtis has a way with spunky banter and funny one liners. Gavin is the business partner featured in this book. He keeps having run ins with the town vet (who has affectionately - or not so affectionately been named Dr. Scrooge) because he is dog sitting a fun loving, sweet talking Saint Bernard named Snowflake. Between the hysterical names that Gavin gives to the dog and the dog talking to the people around him (stay with me here - it's cute and he's not really talking), this turned out to be my favorite story of the three.
I'm excited to read the rest of the novellas in this collection.

Once Upon a Thanksgiving by Anna Adams
There is nothing sweeter than to remember just what the holiday is all about. Ms. Adams brings that into this delightful read. As I get older I can’t think of anything worse than having a Michael in my life. He really thinks he is doing right and is being helpful but he doesn’t listen to their wishes and needs. Giving of one’s time and love is more important than just fixing things etc. If you have a family member who can do both you are in heaven. Lacey spends time with them listening and giving her heart to this sweet older couple. In return she tries to get Michael to understand there is more to loving you must listen giving them a gift that money can’t buy. I really enjoyed this story and its wonderful characters. It really helps put me in the Christmas mood,
Once Upon a Christmas by Anna J. Stewart
One thing that makes Christmas so special is the children. Here the author gives you a wonderful story of two children who lost their mother and go to live with their uncle. He is a very business man writing his book among other things to really know just how and what the children need to help them move on. Charlotte is a wonderful sweet lady. Her heart goes right to the children and their needs in return she does her best to show Grant how to be the loving parent and give the children just what they need. This is one story that will not only touch your heart but your soul.
Once Upon a New Year's Eve by Melinda Curtis
There is nothing worse than being down and have those around you getting into the Christmas spirit. I could really relate to Amelia there were a few years I found myself in her shoes just wanting Christmas over and all the do gooders to go away. My husband would put up the decoration and I would be asking how soon I could take them down. Lol Amelia has had about enough of all the well meaning people trying to help her get in the Christmas spirit she just wants them to all go away. When Gavin’s dog comes up missing it throws him and Amelia together. This is one man that is very into Christmas as he tries to spin his holiday spirit into Amelia as he sends Scrooge out the door to find another person to haunt. This was a very sweet, touching and heartwarming read as Ms. Curtis gives us back the true meaning of Christmas. I really loved this story and its characters. The author really pulls you in with a lovely plot.
Thankfully yours by Leigh Riker
This was a very touching read your heart goes out to each character. Ash who lost his leg why severing is sent by his father to check on the family lodge to see if it is being kept up like his father wanted. His mother hates the place and wants it sold but his father dearly loves it. Garbi was the manager until it was shut down but doesn’t have time to met up with Ash and sends her friend Jill. Jill really doesn’t want to go because of the lost of her husband it brings back bad memories.
Both Ash and Jill have a past they are trying to outrun as the demons chase them. On meeting there is a strong attraction but with their past it is hard to move on. Will these two have the strength to give the other what they need or will love be lost again. I really got into this story the author writes such a great story she had me turning the pages as the race to find out the ending.
Cooking up Christmas by Tara Randel
Ash has decided to reopen his family business he is in need of some help giving a call to his long time friend Simon to get his much needed help on how to rebuild the kitchen. What happens when two strong minded people meet well you get a combustion that sets fire as two heads butt over and over again. Simon wants things his way and Gabi who is the manager wants things her way. Simon takes things in control as he challenges Gabi at every turn. Only one can win at this tug a war or can two? There is some major chemistry going on here that pulls you in with their baiting as head roll and emotions get high. This could be a win win or everyone could lose. I really liked these characters it was a fun loving read that keep me very entertained.
Countdown to Romance by Cari Lynn Webb
We get more of the wonderful told story of Ash as he brings in another close friend to help me get the business back up and running. Zac will be taking over the maintenance along with medical emergencies. Emily who is in town for her brother’s wedding wants to stay at the lodge. Her job keeps her on the move but she is ready to settle down and call Christmas town her home. This is so different for her can she make the changes she feels will make her happy or will it drive her crazy. When these two meet up they feel the pull of each other. Zac wonders if he will be enough to keep Emily or will she skip out on him and the town she grew up in. I really enjoyed reading this story the characters are really down to earth. The author pulls you in taking you way to a very heartwarming read.
Each of these reads are just a total delightful read that give you back Christmas and its meaning. Each give a compelling plot with wonderful characters you can relate to. By the time you finish each one you are wearing a smile just waiting for Christmas to get here. It sure put me in the Christmas spirit.
It was a wonderful and heartwarming read.
