Together for Christmas Book Review

I was totally out of library books to read so I looked on the computer to find something to start reading that was actually at the library so I could get it quickly!  I found Together for Christmas: 5-B Poppy Lane\When We Touch\Welcome to Icicle Falls\Starstruck (A Cedar Cove Novel) by Debbie Macomber, Brenda Novak, Shelia Roberts, and RaeAnne Thayne.  I was excited to check out this Christmas story novella with four short stories.

This Christmas, visit four of your favorite towns, created by four of your favorite authors! Listen to some of the stories people tell at Christmas… 

5-B Poppy Lane by Debbie Macomber  

In Cedar Cove, Washington, you'll meet Helen Shelton, her granddaughter Ruth and Ruth's husband, Paul. You'll find out how Ruth and Paul met—and you'll learn about Helen's breathtaking adventures during the Second World War.

When We Touch by Brenda Novak  

Whiskey Creek, California, the site of a Victorian Days Christmas celebration, is where you'll find out how Noelle stole Olivia's fiancé, Kyle, and what happened next! But is there any chance the sisters can reconcile, especially at Christmas, the time of forgiveness and peace?

Welcome to Icicle Falls by Sheila Roberts  

Come to Icicle Falls, Washington, for a Christmas cookie exchange at Muriel Sterling's house. Hear about the summer Muriel fell in love with a handsome stranger. Her dad expected her to take over Sweet Dreams, the family's chocolate company, but Muriel had sweet dreams of her own…

Starstruck by RaeAnne Thayne 

And in Cold Creek, Idaho, visit with former Hollywood stuntman Justin Hartford, his daughter, Ruby, and wife, Ashley. Ruby and her friends love the story of how her dad and her new mom met!

I reserved this book at the library and then went in to return some other books and found it on the new release shelf so I scooped it up.  I had already read the first story in the book but it didn't stop me from reading it again.  It is hard for me because even with a full length book, I am still looking for a little more of the story so short stories are even harder because they are over to fast.  All great stories that really have you wanting to read all of these authors with these great characters and towns.  I am going to start looking into the only author in this book that I haven't read yet (which was Brenda Novak).  I loved each one better then the last one which is always the case when I am reading so I can't even choose my favorite one.  I hope that you check out this book at your local library or bookstore and you will get a nice introduction to all of these great authors.  Let me know if you enjoy this one and if you have a favorite story!!
