"The Presents of Angels" by Marie Bostwick. Former Rockettes dancer Kendra Loomis is happy to be pregnant and loves her husband, the town pastor Andy, and her teenage stepdaughter Thea, but she has doubts about Christmas in Maple Grove Vermont rather than Rockefeller Center.
"Decorations" by Jana McMahan. After her husband Randy dumps her, Michelle Duncan starts over caring for her mother in Asheville and working at a Christmas store with no thought of men until she meets her sculptor neighbor Baxter Brow.
"Miracle on Main Street" by Rosalind Noonan. On Christmas Eve NYPD cop Joe Cody works a drug overdose case that depresses him even more than the fact he and his wife Shelia cannot afford much for their kids for the holidays; he wishes for a miracle and gets one as he learns what a true gift is.
These are four entertaining warm holiday contemporary dramas in which each offer nothing new but are fun to read story lines starring charming casts who find the Yuletide spirit.
When it's snowing, or raining, or you can't stand your relatives, or when you need a break from incessant shopping, get hot chocolate, shut the door, light a candle, and read the stories. They're sweet and Christmassy and have happy endings, so it'll give you some peace and joy, when you need it.
Marie Bostwich's contribution made me mad from the first chapter. Her female character made decisions that were so illogical that I couldn't bring myself to believe the rest of the tale.
The last two stories just didn't feel romantic at all in my opinion. The first person narrative of "Decorations" was awkward for me to read. I did enjoy "Miracle on Main Street" the most of all the contributions but I still can't bring myself to recommend this collection to anyone.
Merry Christmas all!
the presents of angels is about a minister, andy and his wife, kendra, who is an ex rockette, and the trials and tribulations between them. i didn't like the book that well and didn't finish it. others will like it but it just didn't hold my interest for some reason.
decorations is about michelle duncan and baxter brown. she is home to help her mother out and manage the the holiday craft store she has and baxter is a very brawny sculptor that she meets and the romance that starts with them. it is a sweet romance
miracle on main street is about NYC policeman joe cody and his wife sheila and their two kids. it is going to be a lean christmas and very, very little money for christmas for them. they have already said they were not going to buy gifts for each other and the kids just won't have much even with them doing that. joe has to work on christmas day and the kids are bummed about it, but they do put off christmas until he gets home. miracles are in the making.......
