Christmas, Actually Sweet Christmas anthology I enjoyed all three tales My favorite was Melinda s CHRISTMAS DATE All three ladies were able to give us so much in a short story I enjoyed getting to know everyone in Christmas Town, Maine This was a really great series about a small town named Christmas Town The Christmas spirit is alive and kicking here, but there are a few residents that might need a little romance to keep their season jolly The Banning family is about to find their true loves in some fairly unlikely places.Callie s story the second one was my favorite of the bunch It was full of emotion and I m always a sucker for a cute little kid This one was also a true Christmas miracle as the said cute little kid had given up on Christmas and family The ending had me full of misty eyes and smiles and laughs.Jack s story had some interesting twists and turns to it There was a history to Jack that was very unexpected and heart wrenching I m so glad that no one gave up on him and he was dragged practically kicking and screaming to where he needed to be to move and put his past to rest.Gina s story was just a lot of fun She was my favorite character overall, and had an amazing personality and some serious insecurities to go along with it When all was said and done, the entire family had a beautiful surprise and quite the merry Christmas. Discover The Magic Of Christmas Town, Maine The Christmas Gift By Anna AdamsJack Banning Promised To Support The Mother Of His Unborn Child But She Doesn T Need Money, She Only Needs HimThe Christmas Wish By Anna J StewartCallie Banning S Student Has Declared War On Christmas, So It S Up To Her To Help The Little Girl And Her Widowed Father Believe AgainThe Christmas Date By Melinda CurtisGina Vernay Is About To Meet Her Online Mystery Dateand She S In For The Surprise Of A Lifetime Three siblings find love during one magical Christmas season.The Christmas Gift This novella provides a nice introduction to Christmas Town and its citizens While I liked both Jack and Sophie, I did think his behavior was a bit far fetched, even for someone suffering from PTSD But it s a sweet novella with a happy ending, and I could easily see it as an entry in Hallmark or Lifetime s Christmas lineup 3 stars.The Christmas Wish I enjoyed The Christmas Wish, a sweet story about Callie, a teacher who takes a troubled student under her wing and ends up falling for the student s single father 3 1 2 stars.The Christmas Date The instant I started reading this story, I knew I was going to love it There s just something about those You ve Got Mail esque stories that I love Nick and Gina are both so likeable, and their chemistry lept off the page This was easily my favorite of the three stories 5 stars.As a whole, I think this collection would have worked better if the novellas hadn t been connected All three of these stories are supposed to take place during the same Christmas season in the same small town to people from the same family Yet, as a whole, these siblings know nothing about the others romances The exception is Callie s knowledge of Nick s feelings for Gina I think the series would have played better had the stories taken place in different years or been connected solely by Christmas Town Still, the stories are enjoyable, and they re perfect for reading in front of a cozy fire 3 1 2 stars.Disclosure of Material Connection I received this book free for review through Prism Book Tours I was not required to write a positive review The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Three siblings live in a town in Maine named Christmas Town The three are actively involved with the Christmas traditions of the town, but each has their reasons for not looking forward to the season I enjoyed reading the three stories, written by three authors, that take place at the same time The town sounds like a wonderful place to be to celebrate Christmas I m glad that I got to spend time with the stories just before entering the Christmas season.Each of the author s did a great job in telling their story I liked the descriptions and the characters This book is a fun way to get into the holiday season and find a little clean Christmas romance. Christmas, Actually was a very enjoyable, sweet collection of three connected novellas I enjoyed all three stories, and love that they cover the romances of the three Banning siblings The characters felt realistic and the stories did not feel rushed to me I enjoyed all three stories and don t think I can choose a favorite I felt frustrated with Jack Banning in the first story, even though I grew to understand why he was behaving the way he was Sophie had to be so strong for herself and their unborn child Her perseverance was admirable, and I still liked Jack, even though he was being difficult.Callie Banning was such a likeable character in the second story and I loved the way she dealt with her student who was an emotionally traumatized little girl I loved the connection that began almost immediately between Callie and Dean, the little girl s father But, knowing that Dean and his daughter would soon be moving on from Christmas Town added some tension to their growing attraction.In the third story, Nick Banning pursues Gina, who feels very self conscious about the scar that runs along the side of her face He has been interested in her for quite awhile, but unable to make her realize that he is attracted to her as than a friend But, when she learns of his deception with an online dating site, the question is whether she will be able to forgive and trust him.These stories are part of Harlequin s Heartwarming series They are not inspirational fiction, however, they are completely clean reads These were great stories that I really had a good time reading.My thanks to the authors for the complimentary copy I received of this novella collection The thoughts and opinions stated in this review are my own.You can read this review on my blog at What a fun story The reader is taken on a journey through Christmas Town, Maine and we get to see snippets of what makes this town special through the eyes of three different characters In The Christmas Gift, Dr Jack Banning is struggling with some issues, but being a very good Dr and surgeon isn t among them When he found out he was going to be a father, he ran and wants nothing to do with his unborn baby Jack is such a strong character and it s hard to imagine him not taking a challenge head on, but, as we find out, he has his reasons I love Sophie, the mother to be Her patience is amazing, as is her genuine care for those around her I would have liked to see Jack ease into his feelings, instead of being so hot and cold.The Christmas Wish is about Jack s sister, Callie, a school teacher She has a troubled student who is up to mischief at every turn, since this young girl hates Christmas and anything associated with it Eliza doesn t know how to express herself and Callie is determined to understand why Meeting with Eliza s father, Dean, proves to be a battle, since there s an attraction Callie is very creative in her dealings with Eliza and such a sweet woman Dean does the best he can as a father and is willing to make changes to make things even better I loved the way the story came together.Nick Banning is the resident handyman and the brother of Jack and Callie in The Christmas Date He s working hard to help Gina, a shop owner, make repairs to her store, as well as to her self esteem Gina has met a man online and just can t quite let her heart follow Nick without giving Football20 a chance Gina had some pretty big insecurities to deal with I could understand why she felt that way, yet I wanted her to let it go I enjoyed watching her blossom Nick is a man who can do everything, yet he s very humble I love the way he would build up those around him.These were fun, clean holiday stories I only wish the main characters from the other books would have shown up in other stories Content no language no violence clean kissing Clean I received a copy in exchange for an honest review
