Three wonderful Christmas stories. HOME FOR CHRISTMAS is the story of a travelling reporter who decides to come home for Christmas...only to find a treasure he never knew existed. ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS is the story of two twin boys who decide to ask for only one special gift for Christmas: a wife for their love-wary dad and a mother for themselves. GABRIEL'S ANGEL is the story of a passionate, sensitive artist who has cut himself off from civilization only to find a pregnant, unwed mother stranded in a blizzard practically in his back yard. A great holiday book!

Overall a great book - Roberts dedicates the appropriate amount of time to the stories to plot out the ideas and move you emotionally.

Home for Christmas: I love this kind of premise - Had a love affair and left for some reason then upon return discovers he is still in love and that he has a long lost child....A great read even if a little predictable...4 stars

All I Want for Christmas: A sweet story of Christmas wishes and love growing over time. This was my favorite of the entire book....5 stars

Gabriel's Angel: The longest of the stories it seemed to drag a little here and there. It has a good overall plot and was romantic and suspenseful in turn. Worth the read and time to finish it....Though you may find yourself scanning through some of it....3.5 stars

Overall 4 stars for this one!

I absolutely adored these tales. The first story was very sweet and impresses the importance of communication. The second is about how love children and the holidays can all come together. It's two classic Nora Roberts romances.

Nora Roberts is a great story teller! The characters come to life, and I loved that the book contained three short stories. You can choose to read one at a time, "quick reads" as my Mom calls them or curl up with the whole book, cover to cover. Loved it!

Good Holiday book the first & second story have only 10 chapters and the last story has 12 chapters so it makes for a quick read. The book kinda gets you into the holiday spirit All 3 with happy endings. The second story "All I want for Christmas" was my favorite with the twin boys wishing for a MOM and of course new bikes too, everything just falls into place for the boys wish.

The first two short novellas (approx 100 pages) were okay, but not great. The last, Gabriel's Angel, was very entertaining. I loved the characters and had trouble putting it down.

The Gift is a collection of three heartwarming romances for the holiday season. Usually in a collection like this at least one of the stories is a disappointment. Not so with this collection. All three stories leave you feeling happy and full of hope.

This book includes two stories and they are light short Christmas stories. I found the second romance story about a father with twins looking for a mother more interesting than the other story.
