I purchased this book for under $5 hoping to read a few Christmas stories before Christmas. I was pleasantly surprised. Sometimes, it is nice to be able to pick a short story and be able to read it in a few hours. There are four stories all relating to Christmas in this book. The book gives you a taste of some popular authors. I had never read Fern Michaels, but I particularly enjoyed her story entitled "Mister Christmas." I read it on Christmas day, and I found it a sweet, feel good Christmas love story. If you are looking for a light holiday read, give this book a try. Besides, who can resist the cute cover!
