Book Synopsis

In these Texas-set stories of romance and adventure, the Civil War is over, Christmas is coming--and it's time for three rugged fighters to become lovers . . .

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Jodi Thomas
Dispirited by war, when Trapper Hawkins accepts a job hauling five little rich girls to Dallas, all he cares about is the money. He doesn't expect they'll awaken his spirit--or that their intriguing nursemaid, Emery Adams, will awaken his heart. And when danger strikes as Christmas Eve nears, he definitely doesn't expect Emery and the girls to risk their lives--for him . . .

A catastrophic storm, an ailing herd, and a failing cattle ranch have left Texas rancher Josie Bancroft in danger of losing everything her father worked for. Still, she'd rather die than merge with her neighbor rancher Benjamin Mason, the man who broke her heart years ago, on Christmas Eve. As old sparks fly and secrets are revealed, however, Ben is determined to help Josie--and prove that this time around can be different. That the misunderstandings of Christmas past need not define their future . . .

CHRISTMAS ROAD * Scarlett Dunn
Yellow Fever has hit Clint Mitchum's Texas hometown and taken his father and siblings, leaving Clint ever more cynical. Racing homeward to be by his mother's side, Clint finds only a note from her, asking that he help her caregiver, a young woman named Amelia. Assuming his mother has passed, in his grief Clint ventures out to search for Amelia--and finds the best of gifts--just in time for Christmas . . .

fun christmas novella collection

3 out of 5 stars

Father Goose When Trapper Morgan takes a job escorting a group of 5 little girls to their ranch home, he thinks all he cares about is the money. But what will happen when he comes to care for his traveling companion and all 5 little girls? I really enjoyed this novella. But why do we have to have confederate soldiers? Just because he "didn't understand" the war, doesn't mean he didn't fight for the enslavement of a whole race. This novella would have been so great except for that. I loved the story and the characters, but it was hard to look past the confederate soldier. The Mistletoe Promise Josie's ranch is struggling. She needs to do something to save it. When she runs into an old love, will she be able to forgive their past to let him help? I liked this novella. I just thought that the romance wasn't really justified. I felt like the characters needed to have more conversation about what happened between them. I wish that this was longer to get a better payoff from the reconciliation. I also felt like some of this novella wasn't staying true to the time period it was set in. Christmas Road When Yellow Fever takes a toll on his hometown, Clint rushes home to see his mother. Upon arriving home he sees that most people have escaped. Clint goes looking for the woman who took care of his mother while she was sick. When he finds the young widow and her two girls, will he find a connection to keep him at home? This is definitely my favorite of this collection of novellas. I adored Clint and Amelia. All of the other characters were so amazing as well. I wish this one was longer so that we got more time with these characters!

My first Christmas book this good

5 out of 5 stars
Perriknows - 3 years ago
My first Christmas book of the season! I so enjoyed all three sweet stories. What's not to love about Christmas Eve, children, second chances, and wishes fulfilled! All of these stories are novella length, historical, and very quick reads. The authors may not have written a full-size novel for each couple, but they succeeded in telling their stories and making them real in the pages they were allotted. I can't say that any were my favorite, I loved them all. Just what I needed as we head into the holiday season in this crazy year. Looking back at the tragedies that happened in the past, we need to thank our lucky starts we're here now! A great anthology!
