My Review
These five authors have come together to create a heartwarming holiday book!
I enjoyed reading all of the short stories, and excerpts from each authors books!    I will talk about what I liked from each book, and then my overall thoughts.
Jill Shalvis, Dream a Little Dream
Who doesn't love books about hot firefighters? I enjoyed reading the action at the beginning of the book. When Ian rescues Melissa in a fire. I thought the cutest part was when Melissa was in the hospital, and she thought she was dreaming when Ian was actually talking to her! This was an awesome story to start off this cute holiday book!

Kristen Ashley, Every Year
This is another heartwarming story! Out of all of these stories; this is my favorite. This story actually makes you think about all of the people in the world that may not have a great Christmas like some of us. They may not have a family to celebrate with, or anyone to exchange gifts with. Kristen Ashley has brought us the story of Sky and Landon. Two brothers that hasn't felt the love of family in a long time. I really loved this book. The brothers are learning what family, and what happiness is again. Thank you Miss Ashley for this sweet story! More Books by Kristen Ashley

Hope Ramsay, Silent Night
This is another book that made me appreciate everything I have. In this book Miss Hope Ramsey shows love to single mothers out there. I enjoyed reading how soon love can blossom. Especially when a baby is in the middle! Maryanne finds herself out of luck with a baby, and no where to go. This was a very beautiful story to curl up by the fire and read.

 Molly Cannon, Have Yourself a Messy Little Christmas:
What a really cute story. I thought this story was a bit funny.  I enjoyed the little cat and mouse game that was going on in this story. I would definitely love to read the full book to see what happens!

Marilyn Pappano, A Family for Christmas
I love the different point of views in this story. However, I am going to get the actual book because I couldn't really get a feel on the story. From what I read, I am really excited to read more!

My Overall Thoughts
So after reading this book I must say I have a lot of reading to do. I enjoyed each story in this book. I have read books by two of these authors, and I am so excited to read more books by the authors that are new to me. I gave this book five stars because it was so entertaining, and I enjoyed the sweet Christmas stories! I read this over the holiday season, and it was just a perfect book to curl up with.

If you are looking for a nice holiday book, or just for something heartwarming to read; this is your book. Even if you are going on vacation, or just staying home with your family. Make sure you pick this book up!
