As with some anthologies, one story quickly becomes my favorite. In this one it was Joy Reed's The Christmas Beau. Mr McCraig is thoroughly likeable while Lord Colby is a pompous bore who doesn't appreciate our heroine whatsoever and his brother is even worse. As I don't want to ruin the story I will just say good guys don't always finish last!
They were all feel good Christmas stories that are quick pleasant reads.
