If you are new to my blog you will quickly learn what my constant readers already now...I adore Kristen Ashley stories! They suck me in and I quickly am rooting for someone in the book. Admittedly I purchased this book solely for the KA story, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed each book. These authors all presented some outstanding adventures and stories to create a great Christmas book.
I still thought KA's story was the best, but that is also because I adore Shy and Tabby's story. The scenes with Landon and Tack and the kids and the earrings..I mean I think I had tears in my eyes the entire story. I thought the others were interesting and well written, but some were a bit too short or random for me to understand. I enjoyed the Professional Organizer story and the Elf story. They had some great scenes where any romantic is going to have little heart flutters! I thought the secret in the closet and the adult elf were genius. If the other stories had some more detail and time I would have enjoyed them more because the writing styles were interesting.
