My review:  This was my first visit to Christmas Town and also my first time reading a collection such as this. The fifteen novellas are separated into groups of three with the three novellas in the set having a common theme. Not normally one to like novellas since I like a more in-depth storyline I have to admit I found this collection charming.

There is pretty much something for everyone in this collection. My favorite stories have to be the ones with the animals. I love a good story that includes animals and love, even more, those stories with somewhat misbehaving animals.

This is a great way to get into the holiday spirit and to find new authors to enjoy throughout the year. Fans of the holiday season and fans of novellas will be sure to enjoy these clean romance stories.
