Three sweet, funny, and ultimately cheering stories to get you in the mood for Christmas any time of the year! This anthology includes Vacation, by Jane Green; The Second Wife of Reilly, by Jennifer Coburn, and Mistletoe and Holly, by Liz Ireland. Since I'm a sucker for reconciliation, my favorite in this collection was Green's "Vacation," where Christmas helps bring an estranged couple back together and reunites their family. Coburn's story is not a classic romance, and serves as a bit of a lead-in to her full-length book, The Wife of Reilly. It's told from the point of view of the happily married current wife of Reilly, whose goal becomes to find her husband's ex a new man. Ireland's humor shines as she tells the story of Holly, who finally figures out that her best friend can be oh-so-much more... All in all, a great Christmas read!
