This is a collection of romantic short stories. They are pretty good, but if you are not particularly into romance they get a little cheesy by the last one. IF you're a sucker for romance these short stories are perfect for a fast read.

Four tepid stories loosly related to Christmas; one had more recipes than story. Completly disappointing, unrealistic, unbelievable. These happy endings were so sappy, I'm surprised I didn't go into diabetic shock.

This is an anthology of 4 novellas. A fun read that is light, romantic and good to read at Christmas when you don't have quite as much time to read.
And the recipes in The Twelve Desserts of Christmas sound so good that you might want to try one.
