Becca Huntley once dreamed of a famous career in theater, but family needs kept her from fulfilling those dreams. She scaled down her dreams and invested her talents with the Lyndale Park Players and for the last prior ten years the have produced a lavish and successful Christmas Show. This year they have planned to use the profits to by a new home for the group. With just a few weeks to go before opening night everything is in danger of falling apart. Her childhood friend and famous director Ty had donated his name and talent to the production then suddenly checked himself into Rehab. Ty's business partner and Becca's high school crush, Jack Whittaker steps in to fulfill Ty's obligation.
Jack left the town and all the bad times behind him when he left town following graduation and he never looked back. Seeing as Scrooge could have been modeled after him doing a Christmas play is almost a joke. The only bright spot in this dismal scenario is that he will have the opportunity to spend some time with Becca, the girl he desired in high school, that is until she chose his best friend Ty. With memories weighing him down the kisses he shares with Becca warm his heart. Maybe like the fabled Scrooge Becca can show him the true meaning of Christmas before he leaves her behind again.

Take the time to see how things develop between the two. Will their new connection survive past the show? Find out for yourself soon.
I loved this anthology! The 3 novellas are set during Christmas time, so before I read this I was worried the themes would be repetitive and boring. But these weren't!! All 3 novellas were unique love stories and were so well written. I really enjoyed these so much that I can't decided which one I loved more. So here is what I loved about each one:
Tinsel My Heart by Christi Barth is a fantasy romance story. It's the fantasy of reconnecting with someone from your past, and for this story it was high school friends that drifted apart. The reunion of Becca and Jack in the beginning isn't a happy one, but the two eventually reconnect and discover they have more in common as adults then when they were in high school. I loved the chemistry between Becca and Jack, and also the community coming together to celebrate Christmas.
Season of Second Chances by Brighton Walsh is about a second chance at love. A storm reunites Claire and Logan after a two year separation. Being together again brings back good memories and feelings, but also brings back the heartache. Claire and Logan have a second chance at love, but have they learned from the mistakes that caused their break up? I loved that this story did not only center on the love between two people, but it also involved the love of a family. I loved that Claire wasn't just concerned about herself, she thought of what was best for Logan and his daughter.
Mine Under the Mistletoe by Kat Latham is a story about healing. Ashley and Oliver have both lost loved ones. A winter storm (or some might call fate) brings these two together, when they both had planned to spend Christmas time alone. Even though they were strangers and they kept their loss a secret from one another, they unknowingly helped each other heal. I loved that Ashley and Oliver were brought together! And Christmas time in England seems so magical to me so I really liked reading about their trips around town. And of course I love a man with an English accent! This was a great story!
All three stories were so well written that I forgot that they were from three different authors. Christi Barth, Brighton Walsh and Kat Latham are very talented writers and with similar writing styles, so much so that the stories flowed smoothly together. I think Carina Press did an excellent job of joining these authors together in this Christmas anthology and I look forward to reading more from these authors! I highly recommend this anthology to fans of romance stories, you will love this!
