Wow! What an awesome box set.
I love christmas and pretty much anything to do with it and you can't go wrong with a bit of christmas romance.
This box set is full of great stories all with a festive romance theme. It's hard to pick favourites but the ones that stood out to me were:
Recipe for love by Ruth Cardello. I have read about Maddie and Richard before in Ms Cardello's previous books and it was great to have a look at how they met and fell in love. It was super funny, romantic and families bonding over food. I really enjoyed it.
Must love santa by Nina Bruhns was good. A hot cop stuck with posing undercover as santa and a dog lover to boot, Nick was great. Emily Hasn't been having much luck but that may change when she literally falls at the sexy cops feet. This story was fun, sexy with some added suspense and great secondary canine characters. I love those cute doggies. Really enjoyable.
Those were my two favourites but I enjoyed reading all the stories in this set. They were all well written but each different in their own ways with some exotic and more normal locations. Great characters with hot cops, cowboys and doctors to name but a few. There were lighthearted stories but also more emotional ones. It will definitely leave you with that warm fuzzy holiday feeling when you finish.
Easy 5 stars from me :)
