Title: Sweet Christmas Romances 2017 (bundle)
Author: Multi-Authors (see post title)
Genre: Contemporary Christmas Romance
Published: October 2, 2017
Publisher: Books To Go Now
My Rating: 4 stars
Sweet Christmas Romances 2017 is a bundle of five Christmas Romances that will touch your heart and get you in the holiday mood. Written by five well known authors (two I follow, three that are new discoveries) who know how to weave not only a good story in a short amount of time, but deliver that magic that makes Christmas Romance one of my favorite year-round reading pleasures.
Each novella stands on its own, and every single one is an entertaining romance. Sure, I liked some more than others that’s totally natural. But I’m guessing if you love Christmas Romance then you’ll enjoy each one the same way. Because they’re short and the story blurb gives you a good idea of the basics of each story I’m not going to go into details.
Except to say that I completely enjoyed my time with these couples. And it’s given me a few new to me authors to check out their other works… which is always a bonus for me.
Just as a side note, each of these stories in Sweet Christmas Romances 2017 is available as a single title – but – frankly, you’ll find the better cost bargain by buying them in this bundle of stories, in my opinion.
Find a cozy chair and sit back and fall into Christmas spirit with these fun, charming, touching Christmas stories.
