Bells Will Be Ringing
by Monica Tillery, Diana Jean, Carolynn Carey, Angelita Gill
‘Tis the season…to fall
in love! In this quartet of holiday tales, mistletoe magic sweeps from a
Philadelphia candy company to the ballrooms of Regency England, across
the shores of a Hawaiian island to a snowstruck cabin in Colorado.
HER SECRET SANTA by Monica Tillery Neighbors
and co-workers at Morgan Confectioners, Rebecca Sinclair and Ben
Redding have been best friends since grad school. When their feelings
turn more than friendly, will they be able to get past their fear of
ruining their friendship? A holiday gift exchange might just bring the
best present of all—Christmas love.
MERRY’S WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS GIFT by Carolynn Carey The
winter holidays used to be Miss Merry Damonson’s favorite time of year.
Until her almost-fiancé Edward Everton abandoned her two days before
Christmas. Now he’s returned to their country village, but is it too
late to reignite old flames? A holiday ball might just offer these
unlucky lovers a second chance.
HIS HAWAIIAN CHRISTMAS by Diana Jean Humbug
in Hawaii? When Clara O’Fallen gets a promotion to paradise, she can’t
help feeling homesick for her Wisconsin winters, complete with real
snow, family traditions, and Christmas festivities. But smiling surfer
Kai Schmitt might just show this scrooge how to hang loose and catch the
spirit of the season—the aloha spirit!
GAVIN FEVER by Angelita Gill A
sudden snowstorm unexpectedly strands Julia Winthrop with her ex,
reality TV star Gavin Beckett, at a cozy mountain cabin for the
holidays. Trapped till the weather lets up, their attraction resurfaces.
It’s not long before they realize their fling might’ve been the real
thing, and this surprise reunion might just be a Christmas miracle.
Sarah’s Review: Thanks to Monica Tillery for reaching out and asking if we would review this anthology. I, of course, jumped on it because I love Christmas stories and I love anthologies.
These four short stories are such great Christmas romances and they were such an enjoyable read for me. I love that there was a historical story included in it as well. I normally have a favorite in an anthology, but not this time. I enjoyed each story but in different ways.
If you want lighthearted romances, then this anthology is a good one to read. They are all short stories, so it won’t take long to read it.
