A Little Country Christmas anthology by Carolyn Brown, Hope Ramsey, AJ Pine and a new to me author, Rochelle Alers. What awesome Christmas stories to get you in the holiday spirit! Each book is a standalone with romance, small towns, some are connected to previous series by these authors and of course..Christmas makes for a joyous season! Such a sweet read!
Anthologies are always hit or miss for me. I picked this one up since it’s such a weird year and I can’t even think about the Christmas spirit so I thought this might help. I definitely enjoyed the first two novellas. Even though I haven’t read Carolyn Brown’s series that her contribution was from. I still liked the town and the characters and didn’t feel like I was missing anything. AJ Pine’s novella from the Meadow Valley series was a fun edition to the series. I loved this enemies to lovers story about a Grinch and a woman who LOVES Christmas. The last two novellas weren’t for me. It could have been the length, the writing style, or the characters but I’m not sure I’ll be picking up any books from either of these authors.
