I don't like doing spoiler's so I shan't, i just wanted to point out. Excellent reading material. Short but sweet stories which make the short stories inside more than worth the payout.
Off your hot summer days.
You'll get a lot of different stories like falling for the stranger who shows Christmas cheer, unrequited love finally being returned, romance delayed because if misunderstandings, long time crushes finally getting together, and a second chance at happily ever after.
The first story, ‘An unexpected Wreath’ by Annabelle Blume caught my attention with the character of Stella, who is determined to have the kind of Christmas she wants after becoming newly single. All five stories, though very different, centre around hopes and misunderstandings at Christmas time.
The second story in the anthology, ‘Santa Bebe’ by Lily Carlyle tells the story of Bebe who sells lingerie and is determined not to follow the same path as her mother. Her only hope is to marry a rich man as in the meanwhile she struggles to pay her tuition fees in order to better herself. Will love blossom between Bebe and her neighbor or will her past hurts stop her from seeing what is literally on her doorstep?
I loved the third story,’Melt’ by Shaya Roy’ as it’s a Christmas story with a difference set in India. Naina can’t understand why her husband is so distant towards her. Dev on the other hand has his own reasons for keeping his wife at a distance. It is a very touching story as you wait to see if they will manage to overcome their differences. Spending Christmas in Shimla so that Naina can see snow for the first time, Naina feels that she has lost her husband until she discovers a secret that warms her heart.
‘One in a million snowflakes’ by Michelle Ziegler warns what happens when you fall in love with the brother of your best friend. Nick is out of bounds warns her friend Rebecca and so Angela has to make the choice between the two of them. The bad dates that she has along the way as she tries to put Nick out of her mind will have you giggling and groaning.
The final story, ’Beginning of Forever’ by Terri Rochenski is unusual in the anthology is that it’s set in 1955 and moves to the early sixties. I probably enjoyed this story the most because of the evocation of a simpler time and the emotional heartstrings that it pulled. You may find yourself shedding a tear at this one, so hankie at hand is in order.
All in all a delightful collection of Christmassy short stories that anyone who enjoys sweet but not cloying romances will enjoy.
I loved the story of Angela and Nick in One in a Million Snowflakes by Michelle Ziegler. Nick is funny, charming, and handsome and totally crush-worthy! I felt like Angela way too many times with the wrong guys wishing they were Nick!
I also really enjoyed Melt by Shaya Roy. It was different with an arranged marriage and set in India. It is still a wonderful Christmas story about the power of love.
Overall, these are fun and heart-warming stories that will get you in the holiday spirit!
My favorite story is One in a Million Snowflakes by Michelle Ziegler. Angela has a crush on her best friend's brother, but is reluctant to follow her heart. The series of dates Angela has to endure throughout the story adds plenty of laughs and even make you cringe a few times.
If you are looking for an entertaining, fast read this holiday season this is the book for you!
Short and sweet romance fans will gobble this up for sure. So glad I received a copy of this :) It for sure wants me to cuddle up when it's freezing for some sweetness
