Five delicious romances and holiday recipes by Mary Balough, Sandra Heath, Edith Layton, Barbara Metzger and Patricia Rice.
I enjoyed every story and found a new author.
As always, I love anthologies, particularly Christmas ones!!! Yay!
This is a collection of mostly forgettable short stories. For example, Mary Balough's story opened with the two main characters, married but separated from each other. It took some time to get from hostility to a more Christmas-like feel in the story. THE WASSAIL BOWL.
My favorite was THE CHRISTMAS GOOSE (Patricia Rice). The story was unique. This is a story about a proud widow and the best friend of the widow's husband meeting for the first time after the husband's death. The wealthy best friend had much to learn about the widow and Christmas.
THE PROOF IN THE PUDDING (Barbara Metzger) Another lovely story by a master of the genre.
SOPHIE'S SYLLABUB (Sandra Heath) - I thought the chance of this coincidence happening (couple meeting again) was very unlikely.
THE GINGERBREAD MAN (Edith Layton) - This story did not speak to me.
I love all of Mary Balogh and Barbara Metzger's stories. These were no exception. The other's were a nice bonus.
