I’m so glad I “stumbled” upon this anthology. Some of these authors are new to me while others are authors I’ve become familiar with over the last few years. While some of the stories are novellas or shorts from series, I don’t think you will be lost at all with any of them and may actually desire to read the entire series because they are that good.
Each story is a take on a “holiday” movie. Either a complete retelling or “fan fiction”… Some I have seen some I have not. Some movies I LOVED and watched over and over and others I didn’t care for. Based on my movie viewing experience, I tried to be unbiased when reading these stories.
Here are a few samples of the stories.
LOVE, ACTUALLY BY THE SEA by Traci Hall – A quick and emotional story about memories and realities and new beginnings. A story about having regrets before even trying. “Life just happens. Nothing extra special or pre-ordained about it.”
TWO HEARTS HOME FOR CHRISTMAS (TWO HEARTS WOUNDED WARRIOR ROMANCE BOOK 9) by Tamara Ferguson While this is book 9 of a series, it can absolutely be read as a stand-alone. I love love love this entire series and this was a fantastic addition to it. This is one that I hope you fall in love with and go back to the beginning where it all started.
THE HOLIDAY (CHRISTMAS) by Nancy Radke This is a story about house switching and I LOVED THE MOVIE so I was a little worried about how the author would “re-imagine” the story. It was everything I wanted it to be and so much more.
I could go on and on and recap every book, but I feel like that would be doing you a disservice. Grab this anthology and read them all. It is one of those books that you can pick up and put down and not worry about “missing anything”. If you are like me, you will rip right through it.
I would recommend this to anyone and everyone who enjoys reading and especially if they like reading holiday tales.
