This collection of Fern Michaels short stories is the perfect way to take a break from holiday hustle, shopping and preparations. The stories are written in her easy-to-read style with well developed characters that you would love to meet and call friends. Romance abounds and pure feel-good stories - not just one but four.

How I love Fern Michaels Book's Nov. 5 2012
By Giemini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have nearly every book writen by Fern Michael's, she captivated me with the first book of her's that I read called " Mr an Ms anomimiss( sorry my writing is off because I am lossing my vision) but that book lead to a love for all her works, an even though I may be lossing my sight I will try to get the books in auditory form. The sisterhood was an other great series by her, I just couldn't wait to get the next book after I read the first, an the ending of the last book in that series left me wondering if she had plans to creat a nother series with some of the same careters, like I said, I have almost all her books, only time is against me being abale to read them so I will try to get the books I won't be able to finish onto audio for my new Kindel 8.9, because right now I only have the Kidel fire an the lettering is as big as I can get it an I also use a magnifier, but I'm not complaining, I just love Fern Michaels books an will keep on reading them for as long as I can an as long as she keeps writing them BEST WISHES TO FERN MICHAELS AN AMAZON WHO I GET HER BOOKS FROM........ THANK YOU... DENISE M. OLSON

Curl Up By the Fire with Fern Michaels Feb. 26 2012
By P. Romance - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
*A Little Head's Up: The stories have been updated and reprinted. These are not new stories.

Merry, Merry
4 stars - Andi Evans was a struggling new veterinarian, who lived with 30+ animals and piles of unpaid bills. Peter King wanted her property and was willing to pay any price for it. After meeting the feisty lady, Peter started to have a change heart. Not regarding the property. But towards the idea of having a family that consisted of him, some animals and a pretty, unsuspecting veterinarian.

The only reason I gave this book a 4 stars was because the writing tended to be all over the place for half of the book. For example, they would have long dialogues, switching between one and/or the other, without a break in between. So there are no descriptions but they will talked in reference to what they are doing. It can be a bit tedious at times. However, I found the characters to be real sweethearts. Andi was feisty, caring and not willing back down when it counted. Peter was a little slow but he did know how to humble himself when he had to apologize. Other than the writing, this story was short and sweet. A few funny scenes and little mystery kept the reader hooked.

A Bright Red Ribbon
3.5 stars - Morgan Ames has waited 2 years for her ex-boyfriend to visit her in front of her Christmas tree on Christmas Eve. And this would be the year he was going to propose and nothing was going to stop her from being there. However, what she didn't plan was getting caught in a raging blizzard without any gas. Doomed to death, a dog showed up with a red ribbon in his mouth and led Morgan to his home and his wheelchair-bound owner, Marcus Bishop.

The style of writing is very similar to "Merry, Merry." If you like Lass Small and Diana Palmer, you will like the first 2 stories. The other reason it was demerit another 0.5 stars was the inane heroine. I really couldn't believe that she waited 2 freaking years for a jerk and knew that he had many women and expected to get engaged and then realized after meeting Marcus Bishop that she never really love her ex-boyfriend after all. She just plum befuddled and annoy me. But luckily that was only for the first half of the book. At the end, she transformed into a savvy businesswoman. The hero did not get much show time. His dog showed up more often then he did. So, the development of love between the two seemed a little lacking but the writing cover it up very well.

The Christmas Stocking
5 stars - Gus Moss hated his father. When he found out that his father was allowing the family Christmas tree farm go to ruin, Gus dropped everything and went home. Amy Baran hated her mother. When her mother needed PR help with a charity campaign, Amy dropped everything and went home. Can these two save Christmas for their families, friends and themselves?

I loved the fact when the hero fell in love with the heroine at first sight. What I didn't like was when Gus referred to the heroine for a whole page as 'his love'. That got kind of old and kind of beating a dead horse. Other than that, this story was absolutely sweet. Everything just fell into place without too much effort. The romance was blown to the wayside as their parents' romance and the Christmas charity overwhelmed it. Great characters with great spirit is the perfect read for the holiday season.

Comfort and Joy
5 stars - Angie Bradford ran the gift wrap business in Eagle Department store. Josh Eagle ran the Department store. Due to his father, Angie does not have to listen to Josh. Over the years and lawsuits, Angie and Josh were at loggerheads. However, due to his father's poor management, Eagle was going shut its doors in January. Angie and Josh have to put their differences aside to save their jobs and maybe find love.

The friction between the Josh and Angie was fun to read. I sincerely admire these two. Angie was an intelligent business woman and Josh knew when to listen. All the characters did a wonderful job and you can't help but root for them to succeed. The story truly embodied the holiday season and miracles can happen. I would say this was the best story and was a great way to end the book.

I would deem all these stories to be practically clean romances. The first two were behind-closed-doors. If you like the Harlequin Romance line, I would definitely suggest this anthology to you. The stories were sweet with tongue-in-cheek humor. The stories were very uplifting, filled with great characters. Christmas was well represented and not use as just as a background. If you are looking for passion or a deep read, pass it by. Sincerely, pick this up during the holidays. However, at the price, it can be an iffy proposition. If you can locate this book a more reasonable price, read it
Christmas, Snow, Love and Romance.... Oct. 3 2012
By terrylynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you like reading stories set during the magic of the holiday season, then you will probably like Fern Michaels re-released short stories found in I'll Be Home For Christmas. These stories are all light, enjoyable reads that describe the relationships of four different couples who initially come together as adversaries, but end up through the magic of Christmas, falling in love and changing each others lives.

A struggling veterinarian reluctantly falls in love with the man who is determined to buy her out of her family business; A woman on a hopeless quest for love finds herself snowbound with the brave dog who saves her life during a blizzard and his oh so handsome owner who happens to be in a wheelchair; Two successful career people return to their childhood homes to help their parents get their lives back on track and in the process they meet, fall in love and realize that old family memories aren't exactly what they thought they were and only through working together can they find the true magic of Christmas. Lastly, two long time adversaries forced to work in the same department store, soon find that they will both be out of a job unless they work together to find a way to save the store from closing and suddenly the line between love and hate seems very thin and Christmas time is a perfect time to fall in love with the enemy.

These are typical light, feel good, happy ending Christmas stories that will make you smile... so grab some hot chocolate and enjoy!
