My Comments:

A Bright Red Ribbon:
I loved the beginning of this story.. But by about 25-30 pages into it I couldn't even deal with it anymore! Go figure? I finished it, but I had to force myself. It has so much promise and then all of a sudden it just got so whiny and weird.

The 24 Days of Christmas:
This one was really cute. :) I loved the kids in the story, and it ended sweet. It was a nice addition to the book and a cute Christmas story.

Santa Unwrapped:
Story was cute, but felt the writing style was a little jumpy and repetitious. Also felt the story was cut WAY short.. There was so much more I wanted to know.

Maybe This Christmas:
I enjoyed most of this one.. found it to be a little vulgar in the beginning, and sort of hit home a little bit with the situation and reminded me of a family member of mine. But I liked the outcome and thought it was full of faith and hope. A good Christmas message. :)

Description from the publisher:

Feeling the chill of winter? Then grab a glass of egg nog, take a seat by the yule log, and warm yourself heart and soul with these four captivating tales of passion that make mistletoe seem so unnecessary...

A Bright Red Ribbon Fern Michaels Being dumped by your boyfriend on Christmas Eve has got to be the worst. Still, Morgan Ames promised she'd wait two Christmases for his return -- tonight -- and she always keeps her promises. But a sudden snowstorm has other ideas, including a romantic turn Morgan never imagined...

The 24 Days of Christmas Linda Lael Miller A matchbox advent calendar first brought Frank Rayner and Addie Hutton together. But that was years ago. There's no way the miracles of Christmas -- and the magic of true love -- —could possibly be hidden under one of its tiny flaps. Or could they?

Santa Unwrapped Theresa Alan When Aimee Lachaussee offers to drive three volunteer Santas to a children's hospital, she finds herself stranded in a bar with two really obnoxious playboys -- and the quiet, hunky, wheelchair-bound Ryan, who's about to show Aimee that the very best presents come in unexpected packages...

Maybe This Christmas Jane Blackwood Laura Randall thinks life has passed her by, until a Christmas angel grants her wish to live one, important, destiny-shaping Christmas over. Now that she's got her second chance, can she manage this time to hold on to the love that got away...?

While the weather outside is frightful, unwrap a gift of your own, and delight in these sparkling stories of holiday romance!
