Christmas With You is an anthology that includes stories from L.P. Dover, Cindi Madsen, Amy Briggs, R.J. Prescott and Heidi McLaughlin. All the stories are based around the small town of Friendship, Massachusetts and a newcomer in town. So though each story can be read separately of each other, every story was interconnected by the town they lived in.
Snowflake Lane Inn by L.P. Dover gives the local owner of the inn and a famous fashion designer a romance neither saw coming! Runaway Christmas Bride by Cindi Madsen finds a runaway bride getting a second chance she never expected with the local sheriff. Christmas Lights by Amy Briggs gives the meaning of Christmas back a woman visiting family just when she least expects it with the help of single dad and his daughter. It’s A Wonderful Holiday by Heidi McLaughlin was such a sweet and touching story. A couple on the brink of divorce finds the second chance they have longed for.
Each story was unique and gave us couples we could not help but cheer for! I loved each of the stories included. An anthology that celebrates the holidays with stories of love, friends and family. It was sweet and charming.
This anthology definitely got me in the holiday spirit!
These books all share a character that makes you believe in Christmas magic. Even though there were different authors, they each captured Gabe’s voice in the same way. I was so impressed by that.
A couple of these authors are autobuys for me but the others I’ve never read. I loved all of these stories and I can’t wait to check out other work by the new to me authors.
