A WINTER WONDERLAND is a very good collection of 4 short
Fern Michaels, the author of the first short story. First,
I must say, that I've read a lot of Fern Michaels books and
never have been dissatisfied with her works. In "A Winter
Wonderland" by Fern Michaels, Angelica
Shepard is working as an off Broadway actress, but never
gets any good acting roles for herself. She feels that
she's not getting any younger and should take a nice ski
vacation for herself, after being turned down once again
for a part.
Good looking hunk Dr. Parker North is a trauma surgeon,
who recently lost a young child in the operating room.
Bummed out, sleep deprived, he takes his good friend up on a
ski trip. His friend owns this huge ski resort and it's
time for Parker to take that much needed rest. On their
first night arriving at the ski resort, Angelica and Parker
don't hit it off too well, but as time goes by,
the magic of love, caring and that oh so tingling feeling
they get when they just touch hands, only means one thing.
True Love? A really good read!
"The Joy of Christmas by Holly Chanberlin is another
romance story. Iris Karr is a jewelry designer. After her
mother died 3 years ago on Christmas Eve, she moved away
from her true love, family and friends, thinking she can
avoid any Christmas activities. She lives with heavy guilt,
for on her mother's death bed, she would not promise one
wish for her mom. But no one can run away from reality
which Holly soon finds out. She runs into Ben, the man she
was going to marry, the man she left behind without a word.
Holly must confront her feelings. She tries every way to
avoid them, but eventually she must face the truth. Will it
be too late for her and Ben to get back together? Must read
to find out!!!!!!
"The Christmas Thief by Leslie Meier is a mystery with a
lovely touch of romance. Elizabeth Stone works for a high
class hotel called the Cavendish Hotel. She is asked to
cover for an employee who is out sick. One day she's
sitting at her new desk when a good looking guy walks into
the hotel. His name is Chris Kennedy and they seem to hit
it off right away. They go out on a few dates, and all is
going well, until Chris cancels a date and stops answering
his cell phone. Elizabeth is given a task, to help
organize an event where a set of expensive jewels is put in
her keeping, and when they go missing, Elizabeth and Chris
are a suspects. Her mother, Lucy Stone and Miss Julia
Tilley fly in from Tinker's Cove, Maine to help solve the
mystery. Elizabeth, her mom and Ms. Tilley start doing
their own detective work. Is Chris the thief of the jewels?
A must read!
The Christmas Collector by Kristina McMorris is also a
romance with some mystery. Jenna does estate liquidation.
She is liquidating a home belonging to Reece's grandmother.
She uncovers some secrets about his grandmother that none
of the family knows. I will not say any more for I'd be
giving too many spoilers, but a great read!
