It's odd, I can't lie, to read a Christmas book in the blazing August sun, so it usually takes a pretty exceptional one to get me in the mood for snow and pine- scented things. This anthology did just that.

My personal favorite was Megan Frampton's "No Groom At The Inn" because I adore house party stories, anything with fake relationships, and also happen to be in the middle of reading her entire catalog.

Lorainne Heath and Lisa Kleypas' entries will also delight any fans of theirs. They fit into existing universes, but I read them both as a stand alone since it had been a while since I read the series. I'm awful for details of historical romance novels, instead of remembering the feeling I had while reading it rather than who the hero and heroine were, so the delight of that is that I'm frequently re-introduced to characters all over again! The downside is that I can't quite guarantee you that they're perfect additions, but I found them both lovely.

The final book is from a new-to-me author, Vivienne Lorent. I love a good scientist in a story and this one delivered perfectly. I'm told the series from which this springs is finished, so I'm excited to burn through it in the upcoming winter months.

For anyone who loves novels as part of their "getting in the spirit of Christmas" traditions, this is a great read and highly recommended.
