ONCE UPON A CHRISTMAS by Sydney Logan
*was generously given a copy in exchange for an honest review…..thank you

ONCE UPON A CHRISTMAS by Sydney Logan is a collection of 3 short stories that are sure to put anyone in the holiday spirit. I cannot gush enough about all three stories. Each one was just as good as the last and I loved them each for different reasons. Sydney Logan’s writing is extraordinary and her stories are beautiful, with meaning and true holiday spirit. At this time of year, anything is possible and love comes in all sizes, shapes and packages. I strongly suggest this beautiful holiday collection to anyone wanting a little Christmas spirit.

ONCE UPON A CHRISTMAS receives 5 out of 5 Platypires!!
Texas Hugs and Happy Reading!!!

I absolutely loved all three stories in this collection! A quick read to get your holiday spirit revved up! The third one is my favorite I think, as it brought me to tears, then had me smiling with joy. The question in The Little Drummer Boy, "Shall I play for you?" just broke my heart to pieces! Ms. Logan's beautifully written stories will stay with you long after you have finished them. Don't let this Christmas season go by without treating yourself to this trio!

Sydney Logan gives us 3 wonderful short stories to remind us of the power of hope and love. Each one focuses on a couple faced with challenges at the holidays and how angels step in to guide the way and lead them to the best outcome. Each one made my heart melt and put a smile on my face. A great set to get you in the holiday spirit.

What Child Is This?

Estranged from his family and the love of his life, Thomas Fisher finds himself stranded in an airport on Christmas Eve. Imagine his surprise when a young boy takes him by the hand and shows him the way home.

My Review:

First, I love this cover (you can see it on the kindle copy and at my blog!). I just want to kiss his little cheeks! Second...I loved this story. Oh my, it tugged at my heart and pulled me right in. I kept wondering who this little child was. How was he alone? And then, there's that "aha" moment, for me, and for Thomas. I won't spoil it for you. Read and be touched, too!

Mistletoe Magic

Melanie Taylor is on a mission to find the perfect Christmas gift for her husband. Something special. Something expensive. Something that will save her marriage. Can a chance encounter on an elevator make her Christmas wish come true?

My Review:

A lovely short story that got me into the Christmas Spirit.
Ms. Logan tugged at my heart strings and then made me feel warm fuzzies.
Now, I just need to get my Christmas tree up, and I'm ready!

The Little Drummer Boy

It’s Christmas Eve, and Justin Banks is on the hunt for a last-minute gift for his wife, Megan. With the help of a homeless man and the beat of a drum, Justin stumbles upon the one thing Megan has always wanted. The one thing money can’t buy. It's amazing what we can hear if we just take a moment and really listen.

My Review:

The Little Drummer Boy has always been one of my favorite Christmas songs. Then just look at this cover...wow, the colors look so rich.

Oh my gosh, Ms. Logan had me in tears, and then smiling, then more tears...

Review originally posted on Rach Lawrence Books at https://rachlawrencebooks.wordpress.com.

*I was provided a copy of Once Upon a December by the author in exchange for an honest review. I am not compensated for my honest opinion.*

Once Upon a December is a collection of three short holiday stories that will lift you up and keep you smiling long after you finish reading. They are sweet and enchanting, and will make you a true believer in holiday miracles.

In Mistletoe Magic, Melanie Taylor’s marriage is on the verge of breaking down. She has no idea what to get her husband for Christmas. But as it turns out, the gift is not what’s important. A chance encounter in an elevator could turn everything around. This story reminds us that the cost of the gift isn’t important, but that the holiday is a chance for reconnecting.

What Child is This? is a story about a man who no longer celebrates Christmas due to events in his past that left him scarred and emotionally absent. But when Thomas Fisher is stranded at the airport not far from his hometown, a young boy shows him what he’s been missing all these years. This sweet tale of love and loss will give you hope that even the most difficult situations can be repaired.

In The Little Drummer Boy, a homeless man points Justin Banks in the direction of a little boy in need, and Justin realizes this is the perfect gift for his wife. Giving little Luke the perfect Christmas also gives Justin and Megan the family they’ve always wanted. This is a moving story filled with hopefulness and love.

As always, Ms. Logan delivers inspiring stories that are a pleasure to read.

I have always loved everything that Sydney Logan has written. This was no exception to that. This was a magical story that kept you on your toes the entire time. I absolutely loved this collection of stories. What child is this was a story that made me smile and had the ending that you want every holiday story to have. Mistletoe Magic was a story that captivated me from the beginning. The Little Drummer Boy was another story that captivated me with a beautiful story. This is a great book that everyone needs to read.
