"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

I enjoyed the stories in this book quite a bit because they were light reading and fun. I liked the characters and enjoyed reading about them & their families. The only thing I thought unrealistic was how quickly things were resolved. The main characters seemed to go from completely not liking each other to getting engaged in just a few chapters. Still, the stories are very nice, and I enjoyed the mistletoe theme.
It takes a special ability to infuse good character development in shorter books, but Ms. Netzel managed to do just that. Her characters came alive, full of foibles and insecurities. While I felt the stories were good, I believe they could have been made better if the replicated black moment hadn't all been a "five-minute conversation".
Every denouement was due to a misunderstanding that could have been cleared up in 5 minutes if one of the protagonists in any of the stories had simply just explained what they meant. It would have also helped if each of their partners hadn't jumped the gun, feet first, into not allowing that person to explain what they meant.
These stories are no longer the kind that attract my interest, but I'm sure there's a market for them out there.
I got these books for 2 reasons, they were free and it was set in Wisconsin. I suffered through the first book’s bad writing, hoping it would get better. I started on the second book and I just couldn’t read one more line of bad writing. The writing is something a 12 year old girl would do. Poor plot, poorly executed with a conclusion that might work on a kids tv channel. And Pulaski for a setting? Really? Not even close to believable.
I got the first book Mistletoe Mischief because it was free and of course they just had to put a sample of Mistletoe Magic in the back of the book. I could not just leave my mind thinking about how the book ends so I had to buy it. I loved all the books. My favorite one would have to be Mistletoe Match-up, only cause I love how they were enemies back in high school and still are but in secret they check each other out. I loved the story line and the characters. It's a great read you won't be disappointed it was worth buying. So what are you waiting for click the buy now button :)
True hatred turn love story. Christmas holly, mistletoe make a good nighttime story how can you go wrong or right depending on santa. Got to love santa stories year round. Brings out the best or worst in people. Wisconsin is beautiful in the winter. Box sets usually have more story less editorial author info.
I’m from Wisconsin so when I saw books set in Wisconsin I knew I had to read them and I’m so happy I did fantastic books set In a true setting. They gave me the feeling of a vacation back home along with a bunch of new great new friends that I get to meet!
Three short stories to get you in the mood for Christmas. Three strapping men who unwittingly alienate the women they're attracted to & have an uphill battle to win their affections. Light & fun read with strong family theme.
I really enjoyed the first short on Eric and Marissa and decided to buy the boxed set. Mark and Janelle met in equal fashion and the heat gets turned on in their story. Still just one very demure sex scene, so don't worry. Their story was great. Then Derek and Lisa really turn up the heat. And again, not too worry only one sex scene. I really liked their story as well. I hope the author will bring us more Riley stories.
