That Holiday Feeling

Author: Debbie Macomber, Sherryl Woods, Robyn Carr
Genre: Holiday, Romance

4 Stars

This is a compiliation of three Christmas novellas:  Silver Bells by Debbie Macomber; a story about the Manning family; The Perfect Holiday by Sherryl Woods, about bachelor Trace Franklin whom Aunt Mae wants to marry her neice Savannah Holiday; and Under the Christmas Tree by Robyn Carr, which takes place in Virgin River and is about a box of puppies that the townspeople all try to care for.

I really liked this book, and the three novellas were quick reads, which is what I needed at the time I read it (Christmas), being busier than usual.
I especially liked Debbie Macomber's, partly because the couple didn't jump into bed with each other to realize they were in love. They actually fell in love just by talking and being with each other, which was nice. I just get tired of authors writing books about sex (usually every few pages or so) and masking it as a romance; and thankfully, the sex scenes weren't graphic. (It takes more than sex scenes to make a good book, in my opinion).  These three stories were all quite nicely done.

There really isn't anything else to say about them, but if you want something sweet and romantic to read on a winter's evening when you're settled in front of the fireplace and warm cup of tea, this is the book I would recommend.
