My thoughts: I enjoyed the book.

All three stories were different and believable.They had great characters, good story lines, and were true to the Christmas theme.
Overall, a good festive anthology that delivers what it promises.

Note: The publishers, Harlequin, gave this book to me in exchange for an honest review. I thank them for that.
