Three more great Nora Roberts romances. Nice mystery and intrique and thoroughly likable characters. The Calhoun sisters live in an old castlelike home on the coast of contemporary Bar Harbor, Maine. The search for missing emeralds from the past spans all three stories. I really enjoyed all the stories and plan to get the next in the series.

This is a two story book. In the first, fans of the Malory family will enjoy spending a memorable Christmas with the family, and discovering the surprising long-ago love affair between the first Malory and a wild gypsy. Anthony's story is revealed, also.

In Home for the Holidays, two rival hearts are united by a Christmas miracle that would do Charles Dickens proud.

A good, quick read for fans of Johanna Lindsey.
